- Dry Skin
Avene Couvrance Compact Foundation Make-Up Review
The Courvrance Compact is dermatologist-tested for those with sensitive or dry skin that can be irritated by the harsh chemicals in other foundations. Its SPF 30 prevents sun damage, and the soft texture soothes and hydrates the skin without drying it out.
Clinique Perfectly Real Liquid Foundation
Cosmetic powerhouse Clinique’s Perfectly Real Foundation leaves the skin with a polished, but natural looking complexion. Formulated for dry skin, it’s an ultra-lightweight and oil-free liquid with micro-mirrored technology which hides imperfections.
Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream review
Garnier’s BB Cream is a budget-friendly option for those suffering from dry skin who don’t want to break the bank. It’s lighter than a foundation, so it doesn’t clog pores but still has natural-looking color pigments mixed with vitamin C and moisturizers for intense hydration, and some added SPF 15 to prevent sun damage.
- Oily/Combination Skin
Estee Lauder Double Matte Compact Powder review
Pressed powder is great at abolishing shininess in oily skin, and Estee Lauder’s compact is a double-matte powder perfect for this skin type. It won’t cake around pores, and is gentle enough for daily use.
Shiseido Perfect Smoothing Compact Foundation make-up rewiew
While this foundation is recommended for all skin types, it’s an SPF 15 ultra-fine powder that is a great choice for getting rid of shine. It’s heavy enough to be blended and create full coverage while still allowing the skin to breathe beneath it.
Vichy Normaderm Teint Liquid Foundation
This foundation and was formed with Zincadone A, an ingredient used to banish any imperfections without caking on the skin. It’s designed to look natural while staying put all day. It’s perfect for oily skin, especially if you suffer from blemishes.
- Normal Skin
La Mer Skincolor Fluid review
La Mer is a classic brand famous for their luxurious products, and this certainly applies to this foundation. Skincolor Fluid creates a glowing base with only a small amount of product, while making pores invisible and presenting a totally flawless complexion.
Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Compact Foundation
This cream foundation is made with a powder that was engineered to reflect light, and works to disappear fine lines, dark spots and pores. Clinically proven to last up to 12 hours, its smooth texture makes for easy blending and tone correction.
Max Factor Miracle Touch review
Miracle Touch is a thicker cream foundation that will stay in place on even your most hectic days. The texture hides wrinkles, lines and any imperfections, and it gives the higher-priced foundations a run for their money.
When creating your perfect foundation base, don’t forget to begin with a primer to ensure a gorgeous look that won’t fade. Try Estee Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer for a radiant glow, or Maybelline Baby Skin to minimize pores.
