Acing the Bases on Finding the Perfect Foundation


As all makeup addicts know, foundation is the key to building up any look. Given the modern woman’s dynamic routine, a good foundation should not only provide an even finish that stays in place but also the protection and hydration your skin needs as you go about a busy day.

With the overwhelming number of brands and options these days, the search for the one true foundation that meets our personal standards can be difficult. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of the 4 most important features to remember when looking for one that fits the bill like our favorite from Max Factor, the Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation.

When out and about

We can’t stress enough how wearing SPF is a must! You can hit two birds with one stone by going with a foundation that already includes this essential. Opt for one with an SPF level of 15 or higher for total sun protection.

Come rain…

The change in weather conditions can affect your skin as fast as a drizzle can turn into a storm. It’s best to make sure your foundation doesn’t only give a boost of much-needed moisture but won’t also settle into lines as you go on your daily hustle.

Or shine

As much as we love a good glow, oily skin is a whole other matter. Cop a semi-matte foundation with a medium to high coverage for a natural finish that remains fresh throughout the day but still lets your skin breathe.

Skin care should be top of mind

Gone are the days where we have to pick between sacrificing makeup for skincare and vice versa. Choose an intelligently-formulated and vitamin-packed foundation you can use to battle clogged and seemingly dull skin.
