Is your foundation lying to you? Does it really do what it says on the bottle? Do we really need to wear a foundation that offers 24-hour coverage and makes our skin glow all day? Do you, like me, find the technical garb on the side of the tube confusing?

Of course, we are all in search of one that leaves the skin looking naturally youthful and flawless, but is that actually possible? Having two teenage daughters myself, I’m forever moaning about how teens wear far too much foundation. Frequent orange foundation stains on white school shirt collars is a real bone of contention in my house!
