Choosing the correct foundation: a pet peeve

Ok, I'm no makeup expert, but I do know how to pick the right foundation for my skin tone.  It's unfortunate that most places don't have test tubes/compacts for to put some on the back of your hand and pick your true color, and I think shopping at these places before knowing your color is where most women go wrong.

Oprah has no excuse for this ghost-face display.  I suspect she has makeup artists at her beck and call 24/7 - how did she go wrong?

I'm not sure who this lady is, but this foundation color is unfortunate.  She's beautiful and I love her eyes, but the powder is a trainwreck.

I suspect this came from either a "True Life:  Summer at the Shore" episode or an audition tape for "Jersey Shore."  Either way, if you're going for the bronzed look, blend it in with your jaw so you don't end up looking like you got a chemical peel yesterday.

Sorority formal?  Maybe.  Ghost-face in a green dress?  Definitely.

Fergie's right up there with Oprah.  No excuse for this.

  1. LOL That Oprah pic is really bad. How old is that picture? Maybe that was before she had her own make up peeps?
