This incredible foundation range has the perfect shade for every Kiwi woman

Stop your search for the perfect foundation - we've already found it!

Finding the perfect foundation is a tricky thing - and it can take a lifetime of scouring store after store to find a shade that could be considered natural-looking.

In fact, many women even give up on wearing foundation because they just can't seem to find a colour that fits their unique skintone.

And who can blame them? Wearing ill-fitting foundation can make you look either washed out and pale, too dark or - in the worst case scenario - even a little orange.

Without a doubt, finding a quality, no-fuss and reliable foundation is trickier than taking off your sports bra after a sweaty gym session, but here at Now To Love we think we may have found 'the one'.

We've found a foundation for women of all ethnicities, skin tones and backgrounds - something that Kiwi women, diverse as we are - will love. This foundation will not only cover imperfections and give you a great confidence boost, but it will enhance your natural beauty.

Enter: L'Oreal Paris' True Match Foundation range.

L'Oreal Paris knows how diverse the every day Kiwi woman is - our skin tones are completely unique and broad-ranging.

So they've created a shade to fit everyone in their True Match Foundation range - from latte coloured skin to beautiful darker tones to lighter and fairer complexions.

L'Oreal Paris' True Match Foundation is perfect if you want really natural and well-fitting coverage - no orange tint or 'this shade is close enough' business.

The foundation can be used by all skin types - including those with pesky oily skin as True Match is oil-free and non-comedogenic, which means there's no chance of your pores complaining about the product.

The creamy liquid foundation works to enhance your natural beauty; it covers imperfections and blemishes like a champ but doesn't hide away you.

And after watching the royal wedding, isn't sheer, natural coverage what we really want?
