When it comes to foundations colors for medium skin tones, Stellar is a star. ⭐⭐⭐
Have you heard about this line? It’s kind of earth shattering if you’re in, like, the mid-range for foundation and are always and forever mixing two colors (hello, welcome to my life). I got really excited when it launched at Sephora not long ago because they have 22 — TWENTY TWO! — shades of their foundation just for the girls in the middle. They’re like the Baskin-Robbins 🍨 of undertones. There’s peach, dark peach, yellow, butterscotch, caramel undertones… They’ve got all the flavors!
A “Stellar” (haha) new Canadian makeup line for the gals in the middle
Everything in the line is vegan, cruelty free and fragrance free. The founder, Monika Deol, is a famous news anchor, television show host and former music veejay in Canada.
She’s also Indian and, being an on-air personality, she spends a lot of time getting her makeup done for work. She noticed that makeup artists were always mixing different products to get her exact foundation and concealer shades. After talking to her friends and family, she found out that they were all doing the same thing — cocktail-ing different face products to custom blend shades for their skin tone.
Hey, I’m one of those girls, too! I’m always mixing two colors because it’s rare for me to find a foundation that GETS MY UNDERTONES, man.
Monika’s line is for ladies like me (and you, if you’re in the same boat) — the gals smack dab in the center of the shade range with undertones that aren’t always represented in the makeup world.
I’ve tried a few things from the line, like the foundation, of course, a concealer, one of the blushes and a few of the lipsticks. I haven’t seen their loose powder or mascara in person yet, but I want to.
Stellar Limitless Foundation ($38)
I couldn’t wait to paint my face with Limitless Foundation. It’s a liquid foundation in a plastic bottle with a pump, and for some reason — I dunno why — the colors look lighter in the bottles than they do in real life, so avoid eyeballing the bottle as your guideline for what would work for your skin.
