What are foundation sticks?

As the name implies, foundation sticks are foundation makeup but in a stick format. This type of foundation is a staple in makeup kits for its practicality and blendability. Their multitasking abilities make them great for both quick touch-ups and full glam looks. Foundation sticks offer targeted application and buildable coverage without feeling heavy. They can even double up as concealer or bronzer, making them versatile and travel-friendly.
