High street...is no longer economically viable in House prices and the economy Posted May 19 19 hours ago, desiringonlychild said: As a woman, I cannot see if the foundation matches my skin exactly from the comfort of my home. I need to try it on. There are online quizzes and 'virtual try on' apps but I prefer just going in store... Sometimes you get a free makeover! This is something unique to women (and a few men), I appreciate... But once you know which brand of foundation you like best and which shade matches your skin exactly, the next time you need it you can buy it online, usually with a discount code. Same for other cosmetics and things you buy regularly.
