FOUNDATION FORMULAS

Foundation is the basis of your entire makeup look. If your base isn’t a good match for you (be it the coverage, color or formulation), the rest of your makeup won’t look as beautiful as it should either.

The hunt for your perfect foundation can be overwhelming – there are so many options out there, and it can take plenty of trial and error – so we wanted to make the process a bit easier for you. Keep reading for a breakdown of the three most popular types – liquid, cream and powder – and discover which one is the right foundation formula for you!

angled brow pencils

Brow pencils, powders, gels, mascaras, pomades, markers…there are so many ways to groom and fill in your eyebrows that it can be overwhelming to figure out which product is right for you.

It’s really a trial and error situation – I used brow powder for a bit, until my friend told me that I looked the opposite of natural…whoops.
