Nothing against lipsticks and eyeshadows but the foundation is the backbone of any makeup look. Whether you’re going for subtle glam or high-impact drama, your foundation can create the perfect base. Believe me when I say that no one appreciates a good satin-matte finish foundation more than I do. If I had a penny for every time I had to cover up the evidence of my late-night Netflix marathons and night-outs, I could finally afford those Jimmy Choo Cinderella shoes I have my eyes on. The foundation you choose can make or break your makeup look. A good foundation can make your skin appear even, dewy, and flawless. Their only disadvantage is their exorbitant prices!
