No Airbrush. No Photoshop. Get Flawless Skin Right Now.
From beauty counter to brushes, your guide to perfect foundation coverage
The solution? Start blending. Mix two foundations -- one lighter shade and one darker shade -- and custom-blend the color to match your skin. And, yes, if you find a great match, we give you permission to buy both. If you think about all of the foundation you've wasted, tossed or neglected because of color-matching issues, it's a totally justifiable expense. (At least, that's how we rationalize it.)
To find the best mix-and-match, zero in on brands with a great range of colors in their palette.
Circa Beauty Color Balance Liquid Foundation, $15, recently launched at Walgreens and comes in 10 shades.
Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, $60, has 25.
And Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15, $27, has a whopping 27 color variations.
