Now, before we begin… we’ve got a handy tip for any Huda Beauty complexion obsessives. If you have tried Huda’s {#FauxFilter Skin Finish Buildable Coverage Foundation Stick}, then your new {#FauxFilter Luminous Matte Liquid Foundation} should be the same. If they look different before swatching, that’s because the liquid takes time to develop to its ‘true shade,’ so please allow time for this.
