Good foundations seem to be few and far between today. There are a lot of companies out there that don’t consider everyone’s different skin types when making their products, and naturally what’s good for one person is awful for another. Here’s some of the best foundations we could find to have you looking and feeling great!
Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation (Becca)
This lightweight foundation is the perfect first step in your makeup regime. It gives you that sun-kissed, shining glow that we’re all aiming for this summer in little to no time. It’s a very good foundation because you can choose the amount of coverage you want; put on a minimal amount for minimal coverage or build it up if you want some more out of it. It tends to work best with skin ranging from dry to normal and will keep you feeling and looking hydrated all day.
Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (Fenty Beauty)
If you’re someone who often struggles to find the perfect match to your skin tone, don’t worry, because with a jaw-dropping 50 shades you are guaranteed to find yours in this foundation! The shade range is like no other, and this foundation has been hailed by all as having fantastic coverage while being perfect for longwear (as the name dictates). It has earned great reviews from those who’ve tried it, claiming it does not quit at all throughout the day and is like a smoother second skin.
All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (NARS)
The relationship between NARS and consumers tends to be either people love them or they hate them. In my opinion, they made some pretty damn good foundations. In my experience of using this one, even on my worst of skin days I could rely on it to cover everything up and make me look as good as new. People with all kinds of skin types have hailed it as beautifully matching their tone while making it through even the longest of days and nights with no irritation afterwards.
Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation (Laura Mercier)
This matte-finish foundation has extremely full coverage and is oil-free. While it is full coverage it does not look cakey on your skin and still gives the illusion of a relatively natural finish. Customers have hailed it as being so light that you barely even realize it’s there all while ensuring you look fantastic throughout the day. It doesn’t make your skin oily while also not drying it out, making it one of few good foundations to accomplish this.
Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream (IT Cosmetics)
If you’re searching for a fantastic foundation, look no further than this right here. This foundation is colour-correcting, long-lasting and has won all kinds of awards on top of earning the highest praises from those who’ve tried it. Whether your skin is dry, combo, oily or anywhere in between this foundation should be a good match for you. It also has SPF50+ in it so you don’t have to worry even on the hottest days this summer!
Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick (Hourglass)
This foundation stick is perfect for all of you have busy days (and nights) as it’s great to do any necessary touch-ups on the go. It is full coverage but does not look cakey or too matte; It’s very natural and feels like it. Whether you’re trying to cover pimples, discolouration or any other range of issues, this stick will be sure to have you covered (literally) no matter where or when you need it.
Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation – Peaches And Cream Collection (Too Faced)
I am obsessed with Too Faced because all of their products I have tried to date have been of the highest quality and have lasted no matter what the day had in store; This foundation is definitely no exception! This foundation will leave you looking smooth and fresh for hours and hours on end without drying out. One review on the Sephora website said that it lasted her through 48 hours of labor, so honestly if that doesn’t prove that it’s long-lasting I really don’t know what will.
