- What is the best makeup foundation?
Finding your one and only — aka the best foundation of them all — is no easy feat, especially considering the fact that there’s a lot of foundations out there. To help you find the best one, here are a few things to consider.
When it comes to choosing the right finish, your skin type matters.
Generally, matte finish works better for oily skin types — if your foundation is too luminous, your complexion might appear greasy. A good matte foundation will keep your skin’s sheen in check without making it look like plaster.
Whereas dry skin produces less oil, so it will benefit more from radiant, dewy formulas. Even better if they’re infused with moisturising ingredients that’ll help keep dryness at bay.
This choice is up to you. Sheer foundations will provide a light wash of colour, similarly to a skin tint. It’s the perfect option for those looking to enhance, not cover their skin.
If you prefer more serious coverage that’ll cover up every blemish and dark spot, foundations boasting medium-to-full coverage will be your go-tos.
Whether you prefer a barely-there tint or full coverage, buildable foundations offer a nice middle ground. These will let you easily dial up the coverage in case you want more.
Foundations enhanced with skincare actives such as hydrating hyaluronic acid will add radiance and give long-term skincare benefits with every wear.
Some formulas also have built-in sun protection to shield your skin from the harsh sun rays and make getting ready in the morning a bit easier.
