When it comes to adding a touch of color to your already gorgeous face, there’s a seemingly endless list of options for you to choose from.

There are foundations, tinted moisturizers and CC creams, to name a few — and each one offers you something completely different. While the best foundations will cover up discoloration you may not want to see (hormones, are we right?), tinted moisturizer offers a touch of coverage with a boost of hydration, and CC creams add in skin-spoiling nutrients, too!
