2019 is the best time for you to reach your selfie skin goals. Your first step is finding a foundation that truly matches your skin colour. If you’ve failed at that in the past—and so many of us have—then you’ve probably felt that foundation made you look worse. It’s worth giving it another go, because major brands now offer shade ranges that number in the 30s and 40s, vastly improving your chance of meeting the one. “To choose correctly, shop for foundation during the day, so you can swipe the options on your jawline and then check them in the sunlight,” says Bobbi Brown pro artist Tia Hebron. The foundation should also conceal pimples, dark marks, pores, and scars, so you can maintain a picture-ready complexion anytime. “For that, you want a matte finish,” Noga says. “It camouflages textured skin and radiates smoothness and clarity.” Dior Backstage Face And Body Foundation ( RM155) and Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation ( RM47.08) are both radiance-boosting matte formulas that come in 40 shades.
“Find your perfect shade of foundation by checking the effect in both sunlight and artificial light.”
