Suitable for all skin types.

Any Other Information: This would work great for highlighting and contouring in the appropriate shades. This foundation does have a scent, a cross between baby powder and baby oil, not unpleasant and dissipates once on the face.
Conclusion: This foundation gives a beautiful flawless finish, I applied with a damp beauty blender and buffing brush and got great results each time. You can control the coverage, but even at full coverage it doesn't look cakey or heavy. Check it out here.
