Hello everyone,

A foundation even outs the skin tone and covers skin flaws such as blemishes, dark spots, dullness, uneven skintone etc.
Foundation should match to your skin tone, it should neither be lighter otherwise you’ll look like a ghost nor darker. It works as a makeup base. To find your perfect match, just matching the color to your skintone is not enough, you got to choose one according to you skin type.
There are many types of foundations out there but you should choose the one which compliments your skin type.
