#AskBuro: The lowdown on foundations

All about that base

Text: Renée Batchelor

In our inaugural #AskBuro, listen to our beauty editor Renée Batchelor talk about her favourite foundations

The most important factor for a foundation is that it makes your skin look better.  If it's not a good colour match or makes your complexion look greasy, oily or god forbid, causes your skin to break out, then you want to stay far away from it. After all, a foundation is supposed to enhance your complexion, not make you look worse.

Besides getting a perfect colour match, you need to get one that's right for your skin type and the coverage you need. Click below to hear about the four foundations that we would recommend.
