We embarked on a hunt for foundations that would match our skin tones and here's what we found...
Being a woman in SL is not easy. What’s our biggest problem you ask? NOT HAVING SUITABLY COLOUR-MATCHED FOUNDATION.
Ok maaaaybe I’m being slightly dramatic but if I have to plead with every person coming into the country to buy my Mac BB cream, I will lose my sh*t! No one likes being that girl.
Last week, as I was deciding on whether or not I should apply my tinted moisturizer for the day (a girl’s gotta use that stuff sparingly. Only if the Queen comes. Maybe not even then tbh.), I got to thinking about whether there could (potentially) be a decent foundation available in the local market. I’ve heard of people buying great foundation here before but as I’d never found one that suited me, I thought this was a Lankan make-up myth.
This time, I put on my big girl (Beyoncé) pants and decided to head out and find these mythical products. With the help of two of my fellow Cosmo gals – and to my utter disbelief – I actually managed to find a range of shades that didn’t make me look like a total corpse.
Throwing some serious shade your way
Here are some options that have been carefully curated to match a range of skin tones (or three, in this instance):
1. That ‘fair’ shade (mums , but we do not)
2. No, I did not spend the weekend in Mirissa, this is ALL ME.
3. Sexy chocolate mama! AKA (to all the aunties) Stay out of the sun!
And the cover, girl?
