Bottom Line: I wholly recommend the Prescriptives Custom Blend option for foundation aficionados in search of the most customizable option available. The process was refreshingly easy and the turn around time was brief, even for a foundation fiend like myself! Additionally, the Rozgé lip gloss, Revítalash Brow Gel and Gorgeous Cosmetics Lashes are beautiful finishing touches for a clean, refined and natural look.
I hope you enjoyed this FOTD, highlighting one amazing foundation matching system and some fantastic, less mainstream, independent beauty brands!
Good things ahead, including a By Terry-centric post (with swatches galore!), a fresh video and a Black Friday survival guide ; )
