6 Best Foundations for All Skin Types

Hey, beauts! Whether you like full coverage or light coverage, have dry skin, oily or acne-prone skin, I promise one of these six foundations will be amazing for you. For me, a good foundation is long-wearing, aka it doesn’t go patchy or break up during the day, applies easily and blends nicely, and it should, of course, have a good shade range as well. Here are my fav six foundations right now!

1. Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation

Truly remarkable indeed. The Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation is one of the best foundations in makeup history! It provides full face coverage but comes with a demi-matte finish, which makes it work for different skin types. The texture is excellent and it promises up to 24 hours of staying power. And by the way, it comes in 21 different colors, so I’m sure you’ll find your shade. Ladies, this one is surely worth the splurge!

2. Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation

The Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation keeps its promise as it will provide your skin with the perfect airbrushed look, nothing more, and nothing less. Although you’ll be paying a hefty price tag for this one, know that it’s going to be worth it. This foundation is like magic in a can. It’s easy to apply and its pearl pigments will keep your skin illuminated!

3. Too Faced Born This Way Absolute Perfection Foundation

The Too Faced Born This Way Foundation is more on the affordable side. I believe it’s around $39. If you like this price, this can be your basic everyday foundation. It has a gorgeous finish and the coverage is buildable. What users like about this one is that its lightweight and your skin will actually feel like you were “born this way!”

4. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

It’s not impossible to fake a fresh face when you’re prone to dry skin. If you want that youthful dewy finish, this NARS foundation is ideal. It goes on slightly sheer but gives you enough coverage to cover any imperfections without being clingy to any flaky patches. This is one of our personal favorites!

5. Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation

It’s one of the most highly pigmented foundations we’ve tried, but on the application, it felt like butter and blended like a dream.  It blurred our enlarged pores, blemishes and any redness into oblivion and lent our complexion a supermodel-esque luminosity – without us even having to try.

Named after desserts, the 30-strong collection also caters to a seriously diverse range of skin tones including Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, and Rich, with each of those categories boasting six different shades.

6. Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation SPF 20

Do you have oily or combination skin? You can give the Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation a try. It’s going to ask more from your wallet, but trust that it is worth every penny! This foundation gives a long-lasting soft matte finish that leaves you with flawless skin that others can only dream of. My makeup artist friend describes this foundation as “amazing!”

Using foundation can really up your makeup game, but you have to cover your ground. Choose your foundation wisely. Remember, it’s not always about the brand. Although based on my experience, the high-end ones are really awesome! Anyway, you must find the right shade for your skin, and find the right formula to match your skin type as well. Finding the perfect foundation can feel like finding a needle in a haystack, but trust me, you’ll find it! And when you do, it’s going to be a blissful relationship with your trusted foundation from here on out!
