The right foundation creates a wonderful canvas for the rest of your makeup. When your skin looks good, everything else looks better. Choosing a good foundation is arguably the most important decision you will make when you purchase makeup. Drugstore foundations have come along way over the last ten years, and there are some good options out there. However, if you can afford the premium product, you will receive added benefits for your skin. A prestige brand of foundation will cover better and last longer on your skin. Some of them even offer better ingredients. The following are my favorite foundations available right now.
This is the best foundation for oily skin. It is also a great foundation to cover acne scars and smooth the texture of your skin. I love to apply it with the beauty blender. It helps the skin look smoother, and it really covers. I love the texture – it’s not too matte and it’s not illuminating. Instead it provides a healthy full coverage finish. The only downside is you have to commit to applying this the right way. It doesn’t look as good if you want to rub it into your face with your fingers.
I’m obsessed with the velvet matte finish of this foundation. It a good foundation for normal to oily skin. However, it isn’t the best if you have a lot of wrinkles. I think it works best on people that are 40 and younger. If you have dry skin, you need to look for another alternative. Also, try to limit how much you apply with this foundation. Too much will look cakey.
I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. I love Koh Gen Do’s Moisture Foundation. It’s the best foundation for dry skin, and it really covers. I love the colors that are available in this foundation because they really match people’s skin well. This foundation is also really easy to apply – it’s fool proof. I wish everyone could use it.
There’s nothing better than the lightweight texture and finish that Makeup Forever Face and Body Foundation provides. I recommend applying this foundation with the beauty blender. It covers really well, and it feels like nothing on the skin. It’s a great option if you are sensitive to sunscreen. The only downside is that it can be hard to choose the right color and it doesn’t really solve textural problems on the skin.
