Skin Care Blog Post - How to Find the Perfect Foundation at the Drugstore

Drugstores sell great makeup brands, but won't let you try them on before purchase. Often, after you have bought something and excited opened the package, you realize that the color is off -- way off!

While a bad match is sometimes tolerable, like eye shadow, it's totally NOT okay to mismatch foundation. Picking the right shade of foundation is so important in achieving flawless skin.

Need help finding drugstore foundation? Check out the tips below.

1. Research

Research is key to finding the right product. Try review blogs or makeup forums for honest opinions from real women. Real women always offer the best insight. Also, it helps to find women who have similar skin tone.  

2. Use Online Tools

Manufacturers like CoverGirl and Maybelline offer foundation finders on their websites. All you have to do is fill out a survey, and let the tool guide you to the right shade.

3. Bring a Match Point

If you already have a foundation that you like, bring it to the store. Match drugstore foundation to the one you have, and select the color that matches it the best.

4. Use a Blending Agent

When in doubt, blend. Try blending a bronzer or a darker shade with your new purchase to create a suitable color for your skin tone.

Picking the right shade of foundation can be tricky, but is entirely possible.
