Foundation is the first step in almost every makeup look, but good ones are hard to come by. From MAC to Maybelline and L'Oreal to Laura Mercier, the beauty industry is teeming with foundations to suit different suit tones and skin types, but it's all about trial and error.

Although society will always encourage you to go make up free and embrace the au natural look through summer, IMO a little foundation never hurt nobody. But we've all been there. Putting on a fresh coat of makeup on before you leave the house but, when it's roasting outside, by the time you get to your destination, everything is running down your face and looking streaky. Far from flawless.
