To present a no-makeup makeup, the first thing you need to consider is the foundation; therefore, foundation shade means everything. A shade that matches your natural skin color will present a flawless and glowy look, yet a wrong foundation shade will make you look too light/dark. This issue, our editor Nancy had a small chat with Howard from ITENG Makeup & Hair Salon to know more about the foundation.

When purchasing foundation, a lighter color might not be the priority. Howard said that generally, the best foundation color in Taiwan is lighter rather than dark and the color Taiwanese preferred are usually being categorized as light (#4 to #8) shade for Caucasians. Nevertheless, the situation reversed when it comes to Westerners, instead of light, they prefer colors that will present a natural look.

It is evident that Korean makeup is the latest cosmetic trend in Taiwan and Korean brand’s foundation mostly focuses on a light, glowy finish by adding light violet color into the foundation. However, comparing with light purple, Western cosmetic brand will only put a “real” white/yellow to make a light or dark shade foundation.

YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT FOUNDATION 30ML (1750 NTD / 58 USD)

Perfect for outdoor activities!

The texture of this YSL foundation is similar to MAC’s Face and Body foundation and the greatest advantage is it is a powder foundation, which means it will not be rubbed-off easily. Therefore, Howard often applies it on celebrities who have outdoor shooting to prevent a dizzy look due to the changeable weather conditions.

BOBBI BROWN LONG-WEAR EVEN FINISH FOUNDATION 30ML (1900 NTD/ 50 USD)

Perfect for cover pimple and dark skin.

Girls who have been struggling with trouble skin (redness, pores, spots…), this Bobbi Brown foundation is your best solution. The foundation has a strong concealing function and is suitable for layers of makeup; moreover, it will not present an uneven look when the makeup is dropping off. In contrast to the glowy makeup, which the YSL foundation provides, the Bobbi Brown foundation offers a matte makeup.

NARS ALL DAY LUMINOUS WEIGHTLESS FOUNDATION 30ML (1750 NTD/48 USD)

Perfect for a good skin condition.

If you are a lucky girl who has a perfect skin, then NARS might be an option for you. This foundation presents a weightless texture (similar to BB Cream), which is applicable for layers of makeup, but you will need to consider applying extra concealer because of its light texture.
