Perfect Foundation

When shopping for you ever at tired of batting through

delicate Asian skin? Brush up on these foundation fundamentals
and you can't go wrong.

tone.For most Asian complexions this means a yellow-toned shade,

healthier for your skin NOT to wear foundation daily. If you
have blemishes or pimples, try strategically placed concealer
instead. Or just wear the foundation on the parts that need it
most, likely around your nose & eyes & on your chin. Just make
sure to blend properly.

foundation is perfect for work or weekend. While a sexy shimmer
is great for evening.
