NEW: Beauty Advice – Choosing an Everyday Foundation

The Beauty Vanity | How To Choose An Everyday FoundationThose who know me personally know how obsessed I am with makeup in real life.  One of the reasons why I started this blog was to give advice to my friends — whether it’s about what the best drugstore coral lipstick is or what eyeshadow Kim Kardashian was wearing at a certain event, I’m usually the go-to person for that.  So it was only fitting that I start posting questions I get asked by you!

QUESTION: What’s the best everyday foundation?

ANSWER:

When it comes to everyday foundations, I recommend bases that have a natural finish on your skin and have a light to medium coverage.  Especially in the professional environment, it’s important to make sure that your makeup is not distracting, so choose something that looks like your skin but better.

But before we start looking at foundations, know your skin type.  If you’re on the oily side, look for foundations that are matte.  For those with drier skin types, look for moisturizing or radiant foundations.

By narrowing down the finish and coverage, choosing a foundation will be much easier and I highly recommend looking at tinted moisturizers or CC/BB creams for everyday use.  Here are some of my favorites:

FOR OILY SKIN

FOR DRY SKIN

FOR NORMAL SKIN

Here’s a tip – when you’re starting your search, don’t buy the first foundation you come across.  When you’re visiting Sephora or Nordstrom, ask for help and get a few samples!  In my experience, the samples given are enough to see whether or not it works with your skin.  Hope this helps and happy shopping!
