Decoder :: Fall Foundation Finder

September 10th, 2014

I’ve never understood why women seem so hesitant to admit that they wear (and like!) foundation. In almost every beauty interview I read, the subject either denies wearing anything at all on her skin, or hesitantly admits to sporting tinted moisturizer or BB cream. (FYI: Most BB creams are essentially foundations with some bells and whistles added. Truth.) Me, on the other hand? I love a good foundation; always have, always will. There’s something about covering and smoothing out any imperfections that are bugging me that makes me feel like I’m a master of the universe. Which is exactly how we want to feel when we’re heading into the hectic autumn months, am I right? Admittedly, the foundation/tinted moisturizer/BB/CC universe has gotten a little bit overcrowded and confusing in recent years — so, if you’re looking for a cheat sheet to the best new skin perfecters, you’ve come to the right place!

  1. I will fully admit that I love a good fountation! One that lasts all day, provides the right amount of coverage, and isn’t too heavy is ideal! The perfection mist airbrush foundation sounds (and looks!) amazing.

  4. Well said! Foundation makes me feel polished and put together. I think the women that talk about going bare faced are lying. Sorry girls.

    I loved everything here except the “minuscule budget” comment. I know this website is geared to well off women, but please be aware that us commoners read it as well. I can’t spend $300 on shoes or $40 on makeup but I still wish to look and feel stylish and put together.
