Finding the perfect foundation is no easy task, and flawless skin is the ultimate beauty goal.
When shopping for foundation, you must consider your skin type and the occasion you are buying for. If you have oily skin, stick to matte finishes; if you have dry skin, opt for an oil-based formula. If you are buying for everyday wear, perhaps keep the coverage a little lighter, or if you want a formula to last and cover the skin well for a night out, opt for something a bit heavier.
Check out some of our favourite foundations for any kind of skin below
Estée Lauder Double Wear
This is a must have for anyone that loves a high coverage foundation. With its stay-all-day formula and velvet finish, this foundation will leave you with a flawless complexion whilst still being lightweight and comfortable to wear.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation
There are few purse-friendly foundations that really do the job well, but this one is a bit of a wonder-product. Matte but not drying with medium-high coverage, this formula is best suited to skin slightly on the oilier side. Due to its compact, plastic packaging, it’s also a great base to take away for a holiday or weekend away.
Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation
If glowing skin is your thing, this liquid foundation is for you. A little goes a long way meaning it’s a great investment, and one that is ideal for dry to normal skin types.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick
A foundation stick is great for building coverage and touching up during the day. Unlike many sticks, Hourglass’ adds a nice glow but stays on all day without sliding down the face. We love this new addition to the line. Great for oily skin.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation
This high-coverage foundation succeeds in covering anything from dark circles to unwanted blemishes. It also has a great range of shades and comes in a rather pretty bottle. Put simply, Charlotte’s creation really is magic.
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation gives a really natural finish. Wax and oil-free, the foundation is light and breathable – it’s one of our top every day choices.
Before you find the foundation that works for you, there will be a lot of trial and error so working with a makeup artist will go a long way in reducing the amount of product you have to try before finding what works for you.
