Foundations are such a personal choice when it comes to makeup. They are the canvas for everything to follow. Everyone has different skin types, skin needs, and preferences. I think its so important to take opinions from various sources when choosing the right fit of foundation for these very reasons. Many green beauty bloggers have their favourites, as I have mine.. but my favourite won’t necessarily be yours. So, when putting together my foundation guide I wanted to be as objective as possible. I had originally hoped to create a chart that was an easy visual but had too much to say about each product and found that it wouldn’t all fit on a chart. So I decided I would write a list of things I would want to know about when choosing a foundation. Each foundation is listed with the following information: My personal shade (for reference), cost, where to buy, coverage, is it buildable?, viscosity, finish, # of shades available, is it vegan?, is it organic?, SPF?, how its best applied, think dirty rating if available (a rating scale that determines toxicity), the brands description, and a mini review (provided by myself, from my own personal opinion based on my own skin). I’ve also included a shade guide for each product.
