The advantages of wearing less foundation

I am not a foundation person. But I know how to give my face shape with powders, the right shades of eyeshadow and eyeliner, and contouring.

Between you and me? Not even that much. Nonetheless, I always feel like my makeup game isn’t complete without foundation. But there are times when trying out new techniques increases self-awareness. And one of those is applying foundation.

People say less is more, but something about having half your face caked in a product doesn’t seem like the right amount to me at all—so it’s always an adjustment process whenever I decide to go for it (and believe me, the struggle is real). And guess what? My skin looks better when I go foundation-free.

I’ve experimented with going out with a sheer tinted moisturizer, BB cream, and nothing at all and have found that my skin doesn’t look oily or dry throughout the day, but rather just like skin. It’s also worth mentioning that my pores don’t seem to get as clogged when I wear less foundation, which is a total plus in my book.
