11 Stick Foundations That Will Have You Looking Flawless
For some people, foundation can be a scary thing, especially if your first introduction to it was, shall I say… ghostly!
I never liked the feeling of makeup on my face, and the washed out and cakey look that foundation gave. So, I always stayed clear of it because I could never seem to find one that gave me life or looked natural enough. The closest I ever came to a foundation was powder ones by MAC and tinted moisturizers, but those still didn’t quit work for me. It wasn’t until I was on a hunt for foundation for my college grad pictures that I discovered my new love and it definitely gave me the “wow factor” I was looking for.
So after some heavy research on YouTube and Sephora, I finally set my heart on the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick. One of the key reasons why I love it, other than finish, is the convenience of the stick form. No need to worry about spillage or bottles breaking — mess-free!
And to help out those of you on the hunt for your “perfect” foundation stick, I’ve gather up a few choices that might be just what you’re looking for.
