Which is the Best Foundation?

Image default


The Best Foundation is, without doubt, in which more you have to invest.

Among many other things that you will understand below, think that it is a product that is directly in contact with your skin, even when you wear a primer underneath.

Therefore, and because not all faces are the same, and neither taste, you need to find your perfect canvas and make it you’re favorite.

A Foundation tone is darker than your natural skin, to obtain a more tanned look.

And you should also try it on your neck since it is the tone most similar to the face.

Another aspect to evaluate is to decide the level of coverage to be achieved, which can be between medium or high coverage.

What are the Examples of Best Foundation?

There are some general aspects that you should consider when buying a makeup base.

In addition to hydrating the skin and protecting it from the sun.

It should give you a natural finish, not leave a shine on your skin and be non-comedogenic makeup.

1.     Maybelline Super Stay Foundation

Maybelline Foundation specializes in providing a homogeneous finish on the skin.

That’s not all, it also guarantees full 24-hour protection. It is suitable for all skin types, be it oily or dry.

It will provide you with a shine and oil-free finish, thanks to its lightweight formula and its balanced saturated pigments.

2.     NYX Total Control Foundation

It’s hard to find a vegan formula foundation with healthy ingredients, but NYX’s foundation offers just that.

This foundation leaves a smooth and light matte finish.

And comes with an eyedropper that will allow you to calculate how much you want to apply, and consequently, how much coverage you want.

It does not come with a foundation brush, but I recommend that you apply it with one of these to blend and evenly balance the tone.

3.     Max Factor X Lasting Performance Foundation

The base of the Max Factor shines especially for its formula resistance to friction and contact.

Which does not stain clothes or transfer.

In the same way, it is light, non-comedogenic, and suitable for all skin types.

Especially for sensitive skin that does not want clogged pores.

This foundation will leave you with a finish that will naturally illuminate your face, remaining intact all day, and for those with rhinitis or allergies.

Its 8-hour protection is less than other bases, but it is quite cheap and functional.

4.     Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear

One of the best makeup foundations of recent times is that adapts to any skin tone.

Since it comes in no more and no less than 40 different shades of makeup.

It works on all skin types and offers long-lasting full coverage, leaving a smooth finish without any shine.

5.     MAC Studio Fix Fluid

Another favorite foundation is MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid, an infallible mattifying foundation.

Although it works well for all skin types, it is ideal, especially for oily and combination skin.

This foundation offers high matt coverage and also comes with SPF15 protection.

6.     Chanel Les Beiges

Another of the best makeup bases with which you will be sure is the classic Les Beiges de Chanel.

This coverage is ideal if you are looking for a natural, good- looking look without the need for much coverage.

It is a very light foundation with an impeccable finish.

You can find it in both liquid, powder, or compact format.

The only downside is that it doesn’t come in a wide variety of shades.

  1. Too Faced Born This Way

Another big favorite is the Too Faced brand foundation, Born This Way.

As its name indicates, it will seem that you were born with that perfect skin that it leaves.

Its coverage hides imperfections very well but leaves a very natural appearance.

It contains coconut water to hydrate the skin, but it is not greasy at all.

8.     Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition

This Urban Decay liquid makeup base is another of the best you can buy to ensure good results.

Leaves a semi-matte finish and a lot of luminosity on the skin, so that it looks radiant.

It also comes in a wide variety of shades, adapting to all skin types.

9.     Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear

This makeup base is perfect if you are looking for a fresh and long-lasting finish.

As it promises up to 24 hours of duration without imperfections.

It works well with all skin types and allows you to create an even but natural coverage.

10. L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24H-Matte

This is another of the best options if your skin is rather oily since it has a very good mattifying effect.

Like Lancome’s predecessor, L’Oreal’s Infallible foundation promises long-lasting makeup fixation.

11. NARS Sheer Glow

If instead, you have dry skin, one of the best foundations you can buy is Sheer Glow from NARS.

It has a moisturizing effect and adds a lot of shine to the skin, with a very natural radiance finish.

12. BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting

BECCA’s Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation is another very good purchase option if you are looking for low coverage or a very natural effect.

Leaves an even skin with a very soft and light coverage.

How to Apply Best Foundation?

In addition to the texture, format, and shade of makeup that best suits you.

You can choose different tools to achieve an ideal complexion

  • Makeup Sponge

They allow a natural finish and are very versatile. The newest option in this regard is the silicone sponge.

Ideal for the fluid foundation.

But it can also be used with powder or compacts.

  • Kabuki Brush

It allows more coverage than a sponge, but with a natural finish and good product distribution.

It is used with both fluid and powder makeup.

  • Skunk Brush

It allows a natural coverage, lighter than with kabuki. It is used with the fluid product especially.

  • Cat’s Tongue

It allows greater coverage than the rest of the brushes and works with both fluid, cream, compact, or stick makeup.

  • The Hands

For many make-up artists, the best tool to obtain the ideal finish.

Since working with the fingertips allows the product to heat up and make it sit better on the skin.
