The Beauty Professor
I never tire of the eternal quest for the quintessential foundation. As a NC 20-25, I gravitate towards a medium to full coverage light foundation with yellow or golden undertones. The foundation needs to be sensitive skin friendly, last most of the day, not oxidize greatly and appear perfecting yet natural. Yes these expectations are lofty, however, in the past year, I have discovered many newer foundations that meet my criteria thereby earning a place in the rotation. The image below (taken in natural daylight) reflects some of my discoveries and if you share my skin tone and foundation, you may find these swatches to be of use, especially because the Edward Bess, D and G, Giorgio Armani and Koh Gen Do foundations are hard to locate unless you live in a major city. I wish you the best on your foundation quest.
