With countless options in the market and a skin type that's hard to figure out sometimes (hello, skin aging!), finding the perfect foundation match can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. To save you from over-spending due to trial and error, here's a tried-and-tested trick you can try at the beauty counter: swatch and go.

First, swipe and blend the shades you want to test on your jawline. (FN Tip: Don't be afraid to ask the beauty adviser for recommendations.) After swatching, leave the counter first, especially when trying out liquid foundation, and take your time while checking the rest of the merchandise. Doing so allows the makeup to settle on your skin. When you return to the makeup counter, you'll notice if it has changed its color or if its texture is hiyang on your skin. This simple yet genius method can determine if the foundation is a good match for your skin tone AND skin type.

Remember, your skin could react differently to a new formula, so it's best to do this with each product you want to purchase. Happy shopping!
