Now that the pandemic has changed the way we touch anything, makeup testers are now out of the picture. This has led customers to rely on a particular brand's post of swatches or a review by an influencer, friend, or a publication (like us!). This is cool and helpful, but some products, like bases, are better tested IRL to see how it looks on the face. Thankfully, there are makeup products that magically adjust to your skin color and create a custom shade for you. Check out these clever beauty finds below:
1. blk Cosmetics Universal Color Adapting Moisture Balm MLBB
The search is over for the best everyday lippie! BLK Cosmetics came up with a lip balm that creates the perfect MLBB hue based on your body temp. The sheer wash of color is perfect for your no-makeup looks.
