Most of us have been guilty of it—leaving the house with a face full of slightly mismatched foundation.

We don’t necessarily notice it during our application process, but based on the behind-our-back snickers and embarrassing photo opps that we later see, we realize we’ve committed the biggest beauty faux pas.

There are many reasons why this could happen. Perhaps we aren’t speaking to specialists and are rather just grabbing what we think will match our skin. Maybe we think because one shade matches our similarly toned bestie, that means it will match us, too. There’s really no proper answer for this, but the good news is, Bare Minerals is here to fix the problem—and you don’t even have to leave the house.

The beauty brand’s new Made-2-Fit app allows you to create fresh-faced liquid foundation that is a perfect match for your skin tone.

When you download the app, you scan your skin using MATCHCo’s revolutionary technology. After the app determines your personalized spot-on shade, you can order a bottle, and it even comes with your name on it.

We were lucky enough to attend the official launch for the app on the rooftop of Hollywood’s trendy NeueHouse event space and we even got to order a customized bottle ourselves. After undergoing the matching process, we’re very confident that our shade will be a fit. But as always, stay tuned.


Now that you’ve got your foundation out of the way, let’s get your puckers a pop of color with THESE shades from MAC’s Metallic Lip Collection.
