A skin-toned makeup product designed to even out skin tone, give the skin a particular finish (i.e. luminous), and/or cover perceived skin flaws and discoloration.
Foundation goes on top of either your clean, moisturized skin, or a makeup primer.
You absolutely don't HAVE to wear foundation. If you do choose to wear it, trying samples at a local big beauty store like Sephora will be the safest bet for making sure you find the formula and shade you love since there are so many options! Foundation is very personal.
