Foundation is commonly known as a base to start with for the rest of your makeup to come.
This is very true, but it also does many other important things, making it absolutely essential.
When applying, it should make your skin look and feel smooth, lightweight and allow it look naturally even.
This sets you up well for the rest of your make up routine since it gives you even coverage and a smooth surface to work with.
