Skin-illuminating foundations

Use base make-up to look flawless

Brought to you by Qoo10

The right base make-up is essential for a polished look.

Foundations, BB creams and some primers hide blemishes, redness and even pores, making skin look flawless. Many of the latest ones come with a variety of tools for a fuss-free application and streak-free finish. The latest textures give skin a semi-matte finish with a glow.

Pick products with SPF for sun protection.
