Finding a foundation formula is one thing but finding a formula that I like with a color range that works for me is something else. I’ve been testing different high-end foundations since I was 16 and have finally found some ones that I love. It took 5 years of searching to finally figure out what works for me.
Before this, I would dabble in drugstore foundations but I always struggled with finding one that correctly matched my yellow undertones.
Now, I understand that high-end foundation is expensive and not everyone can afford it. Due to this, I will also show my favorite drugstore foundations that I got relatively close to my skin tone.
Favorite drugstore foundations: Maybelline Fit Me & Revlon ColorStay
Favorite high-end foundations: Too Faced Born this Way & Tarte Amazonian Clay.
Color Matching: Do NOT match based off a swatch done on your arm. Swatch on your neck to see how close the foundation is to your skin tone.
