3 Brilliant Medium To Full Coverage Foundations You Need To Try

When it comes to foundation these days I’ve actually been letting my skin breathe quite a bit and in all honesty, I haven’t been wearing any foundation at all on a day to day basis.

It consists of three shades of pink which can be used individually or mixed together. In terms of the formula, it isn’t super pigmented and it does contain a little bit of glitter but as far as baked products go, this isn’t bad.…
