So, How Do You Find The Perfect Foundation?

‘Knowing your skin’s undertone will make the process of finding your foundation match much easier’, says Zipho. If you’re struggling with determining your undertone, there are amazing consultants in every Foschini store to help you, so don’t hesitate to ask. With the beauty haul, Zipho has done all the hard work for you by finding a foundation for every budget – she’s picking up a budget-friendly foundation under R150, a basic foundation that costs around R250, and a baller one for just over R500.

Finding Your Budget Foundation

These can be difficult to find but fear not – Zipho recommends Pretty By Flormar, which is exclusive to Foschini. What you’ll love about this foundation brand is the extensive selection of shades, its matte finish, buildable coverage and built-in SPF. Yaaas.
