Most women do not realize the importance of using the best color of foundation to match their skin tone, many people make the mistake of either going with a shade to light, which will make them look pasty, or worse yet, they choose a color that is too dark for their skin. That can make them look like they are wearing a mask and make them look on the fake side.
The purpose in using the right foundation is to make yourself look as natural as you can. Your foundation can hide minor flaws and even out your skin tone, making you look refreshed and natural at the same time.
