3. A skin-loving foundation suited for every day use
Foundations are quite intimidating. Use the wrong one and you’re looking at days—or *gasp*—WEEKS of dealing with breakouts and blemishes. Switch to a lightweight, breathable, and moisturizing foundation that won't clog pores. We love the latest one from Body Shop, which gives your skin enough coverage and leaves you with a beautiful semi-matte finish. It comes in 10 shades and will work for women even with sensitive skin.
