Any makeup-lover knows that the key to a flawless face is starting with the perfect foundation. Once you’ve found your perfect-match foundation, your whole makeup routine changes.

But thankfully, Sephora not only has a fantastic, and broad selection of some of the world’s most loved, and best-reviewed foundations, they’ve gone one step further with their new Foundation Finder Quiz. The simple and easy questions will leave you with a stellar recommendation, and if you’re already using a foundation from Sephora, it can compare your shade with hundreds of others to give you a seamless match. Sephora has made it easy, and accessible for everybody to find their perfect foundation, but just in case you want to know a little bit more about some of Sephora’s newest foundations look no further.
