Social networks have completely changed our way of perceiving beauty. The Instagram and TikTok beautifying filters are here to stay and many times we wish they also existed in real life. Makeup can be a great tool to achieve this, as long as we use the right products.
In addition to concealers (an essential to achieve this effect), makeup bases are essential to unify the tone and sublimate our natural beauty, leaving a velvety finish and, if possible, light. Although a good skincare routine helps the most, these beauty products help the process.
However, not everything can be good and it is that not all are worth to achieve this finish on the skin. Makeup bases often manage to emphasize texture, leave pores too visible or can even be patchy, so we must know which ones to choose. If you want a face like you’re wearing an Instagram filter, tab our favorite bases to make it.
