One Simple Step Eliminates Drugstore Guesswork

Ever heard a makeup tip that makes so much sense you're shocked at yourself for not thinking of it? Well, recently I checked out a presentation by celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff, who works with the CoverGirl Queen Collection. When demonstrating several looks (like the baby step to bold color), she mentioned a simple tip to make finding drugstore foundation less tricky.

Whether you usually use mineral, liquid, or compact makeup, bring the actual container of your current brand into the drugstore. That way you're not mulling over shades, committing the color to memory before you leave home, or holding a sealed package up to your wrist — display the comparable hues side by side as you choose.

hmm.. i thought depending on the brand (like high end vs low end) they can look shades different. like with my chanel foundation it looks a lot darker but goes on well on my skin whereas if i were to use neurtrogena the foundation looks a lot lighter but looks the same on my skin. but good idea nonetheless. I guess i'll give it a try!

thats pretty smart. most of my foundation except my studio fix is from drugstores anyway, so i just need to remember the shade number to either repurchase or compare against other brands.

i always try to do that, but sometimes i forget the tube at home, as i have a strict rule of always putting my make up and beauty things away.
