8 Best Alternatives To Foundation For A No Makeup Look

If you're looking for some of the best alternatives to foundation, then these are our favourite methods of getting flawless skin without a foundation routine!

Foundation isn’t everyday friendly for most people. Either it is too much to wear day-to-day, or there just isn’t enough time to apply a full face every morning, or if it is just too much for your skin to handle on a daily basis. Here are my top 8 alternatives to foundation that will have your skin looking just as good with that no makeup look at a fraction of the time and none of the heaviness.

1. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

A couple swipes of your favourite concealer on areas that need a little coverage is a great alternative to wearing a full face of foundation. The Tarte Shape Tape is creamy and full coverage, able to give you that bendable amount of coverage that you need without the layer of foundation underneath. The crease-free and creamy formula that has revolutionised concealers in the makeup world is one that will wear comfortable all day.

2. Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB

A BB cream is one of the best alternatives to wearing a full face of foundation. A lighter and healthier of the foundation will work perfectly to give you that no makeup look. This Holika Holika BB cream is absolutely revolutionary. One that wears weightless on the face, blends seamlessly and is intensely hydrating throughout the day. This product is sure to give you that perfected skin looks without all the weight and cake. The gentle putty-like texture of the product is cooling and comfortable on the skin when applied, and sinks into the skin beautifully, giving you that natural skin-like look.


3.Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer

Similar to the BB cream, the tinted moisturiser is also a great alternative to a foundation. This Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser is highly hydrating and sits comfortably on your skin like a moisturiser that has a slight tint to perfect your skin where necessary.

The slight SPF of 15 makes it perfect for day-to-day use protecting your skin when you’re out running errands. Suitable for all skin types, pick this one up for a daily use.

4. Shu Uemura Poreraser CC UV Mousse

Sometimes what you need for a natural skin day is some mild colour correcting and you are good to go! This CC Mousse from She Uemera has you covered for any kind of colour correcting you could want. The fun and light mousse texture of the product not only makes it a treat to apply, it will also sit weightlessly on the skin while being absorbed easily. After applying this, your skin should appear more even and smooth. No makeup look complete!

5. Too Faced Born This Way Concealer

The Too Faced Born This Way line has been a cult favourite for a reason, and their concealer is no exception. Apply a few touches of this on your face in the mornings you are short on time and blend out. The formula has just the right amount of coverage to give you that put together awake look without all the weight. The skin-like is the real winner of this product that will surely give you that no makeup look.
