Sephora’s New Foundation Guide Is The Perfect Tool For All The Shades Of Latinidad
With the start of Latino Heritage Month, it’s time to celebrate all the qualities that make our community vibrant, remarkable, and beautiful – that includes nosotros mismos! One of the unique qualities of Latinidad is that we are a communidad made of a spectacular spectrum of colores, from freckles to piel morena and every shade in between.
So it’s a major bummer when mismatched foundations mar our flawless appearances. Thankfully for our complexions, Sephora has launched their new Foundation Guide, an online guide with four incredible tools designed to help you find your perfect foundation match.
Their new In-store Shade Matching service uses scanning technology to evaluate your skin and suggest the right shade for you. The Online Shade Finder expands your foundation possibilities by finding your favorite shade in other brands. If you’re looking for suggestions for your entire makeup regime, try the online Complexion Routine Builder quiz to get a personalized product lineup. And if you’re just totally new to foundation, Sephora has you covered with a Foundation Quiz that will match you with something you’ll love. Oh, and all of these tools are entirely gratis to use!
