Foundation Basics 101

Foundation is an essential beauty product and can do miraculous wonders, but is often one of the hardest products to buy. Shade, texture, coverage and finish are all important when it comes to choosing the best foundation for you, but the “right” foundation may not always necessarily be the right for your skin type.

Here’s an introductory guide to some of the best tested foundations depending on your skin type, whether you have dry, sensitive, oily or combination ski. Some of these products are not student friendly in terms of price, so check out the alternatives if you’re on a tight budget!

My best recommendation is to always test out the foundation on your actual face, especially if you are at a makeup counter. Do not be afraid to ask!
