Picking The Correct Foundation

Ladies do this all the time. You run into the drugstore to pick up some makeup and you end up pacing the beauty aisle because you have no idea what shade of foundation to get.  You know what you do? You turn on your cell phone. That's because there's a new app that can tell you immediately not only what shade to buy, but also what brand. TCL Beauty Guru Sara Bartlett stopped by with what’s buzzing in the beauty world.

There are several new innovations in foundation. Here are a few new kinds she says are worth trying.

Kokko Beauty Foundation App - this new app and the accompanying color match card eliminate the guess-work of what foundation shade is right for you. With foundations from Mac, L'Oreal, IT Cosmetics, Maybelline and more, it will tell you exactly which shade you buy. The app is free.

Color Matching Chart -$6, but use promo code TCLSARA to only pay shipping.

Serum foundation by Gressa Skincare – Sara says this stuff is a game changer. It provides the benefits of a serum with actual coverage.
