My Foundation Woes

My name is Katie.
I have too many foundations.
Let me tell you why.

My skin tans a lot.
I work outside.
It's not a good situation for staying one shade over the summer.

My start of the summer shade (Late june): NC35
my current shade (perfect match): NC 45

So in the span of about 2 weeks I've pretty much changed my skin colour completely

Please note that I wear SPF 85 everyday and reapply every 3 hours and SPF 20 in foundation because I'm paranoid of premature aging.. my skin just tans very deeply very fast.

So this is the part where I show you my foundation collection:

  2. yeah...
    foundations are my biggest makeup vice
    it's because I can always justify getting another because my skin tans so fast so in the winter I'm around NC30 and in the summer I'm around NC 47 or more /:
