Find the perfect foundation for your skin, and don’t forget the primer!
When it comes to foundations, perhaps no one knows better than black women that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. And while finding your perfect match in a sea of shades primarily targeting women with fair complexions isn’t the simplest of tasks, the options for women of color are more abundant than you think. After you’ve scored the right color or color combination, don’t forget to prime your skin. Crucial for absorbing oil and masking fine lines, primers help foundation adhere and give off an especially smooth appearance. And just like foundation, chose one according to your skin color and type. —LaConia J. Dean
