Sephora is every makeup lover’s heaven. From foundation to lipstick, Sephora truly is the ultimate beauty destination. With a huge variety of brands to select from, shopping in the major beauty outlet can be daunting, especially when it comes to buying the right foundation.
Before you fall down the foundation rabbit hole, we’ve done all the homework to ease your shopping experience.
How do you find the right shade of foundation?
It can be tricky to find the perfect foundation shade, especially since the shade names are not standardised across brands. When it comes to choosing your shade, using your forearm to swatch your foundation is not the right way.
This is because the tone of our facial skin is different from the other parts of our body. Instead, you should swatch your neck or upper chest as your foundation shade is supposed to match your neck, not your body.
Alternatively, a cleaner, quicker and easier way to find the right foundation shade is with Sephora’s Shade Finder. All you need to do is input the type and shade of foundation you’re currently using and Sephora will choose the best shade match for you.
With thousands of raving reviews on Sephora, Queen RiRi’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is not to be missed with over 50 shades to choose from. High coverage, matte and long-lasting, this best-selling foundation covers imperfections, pores and skin texture for a flawless finish. It’s also oil-free, lightweight, sweat- and humidity-resistant.
For fresh and matte skin all day long, the Matte Velvet Skin Full Coverage Foundation is sure to deliver. Formulated with its very own Flexi-Fit mesh complex, the waterproof foundation adjusts and adapts to your skin type and facial features. That means no more caking, cracking or creasing!
With the Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate, one drop is literally all you need to have flawless skin for up to 24 hours. It’s formulated with twice as many pigments than your standard full coverage foundation, hence why you can achieve extreme coverage with just a thin layer. Bye-bye blemishes!
Keep your skin nourished and hydrated as you cover with IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, peptides, niacin, hydrolysed collagen and other skin-loving ingredients, the full coverage foundation colour corrects dullness and hyperpigmentation for a bright and youthful complexion.
No time for liquid foundations? Sephora Collection’s Matte Perfection Stick Foundation & Concealer can simplify your base makeup routine instantly. The 2-in-1 stick foundation has an ultra-creamy formula that glides onto your skin with ease. Whether it’s dark circles, acne or dull skin, this matte stick can do the trick.
Achieving balanced skin is key to tackling combination skin. Rather than piling on a thick foundation, opt for Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation. The smart foundation detects and replenishes your skin’s needs for a flawless, smooth and non-drying wear time.
When it comes to formulating makeup for sensitive skin, there isn’t any brand that can do it like Cover FX. Specially formulated for sensitive skin types, the Pressed Mineral Foundation is a talc-free and non-pore clogging powder foundation. It’s infused with Kaolin clay to help control oil production and keep your skin matte all day.
If you’re looking for a foundation that can last through Singapore’s hot and humid weather, look no further than Estee Lauder’s cult-favourite Double Wear Foundation. The oil-free foundation provides a full coverage application that is waterproof, transfer- and humidity-resistant. It also has a lightweight and matte finish so it feels like nothing is on the skin.
