Top 6 Best Foundations for Every Skin Type
You’ve got a routine. You wake up and brew some coffee. You stretch it out with break of dawn Pilates. You have a career you run from an office desktop and an iPhone simultaneously. You have after-work Happy Hour karaoke with your girlfriends (I mean, you kind of make the perfect T-Boz in your social circle’s rendition of “Creep” and can’t just let that go to waste). Lather, rinse, repeat.

Here’s the deal: You’re busy. On top of all that, you have to put your makeup on and possibly reapply somewhere in the middle of All The Above and you can’t just holler at Jennifer Lopez’s makeup artist to touch you up with a text message.

Luckily we have a list of six simple on-the-go foundations here that provides you with a great base to forget about and focus on accomplishing this thing called life. These long-lasting recommendations work with and in a variety of skin types and shades that offer more coverage without looking too FOUNDATION IN ALL CAPS, know what we’re saying?

Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfecting Makeup
The title of this Clinique product is a mouthful, but it doesn’t look that way on your face. Available in 12 shades—from Alabaster to Espresso—this oil-free formula will soften and blur visible pores instantly and over time for a virtually poreless look.

MaxFactor Facefinity 3 in 1 Foundation
If you want to erase that sheen from your face, this Max Factor all day matte finish, like you, is a multi-tasker—it’s a primer, concelear, and foundation all in one. It also utilizes a flexi-hold technology and micro-correctors to keep sweat and sebum at bay, and no, it’s not done yet…it’s also SPF 20.

Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat
This YSL foundation is like sunshine on your face that synchronously protects you from sunshine with its SPF 19 protection. The light fluid focuses on shadow areas and highlights contours of your face for a perfectly even texture in 22 specific shades. No GMOs, triclosan, phthalates, and other chemicals not worth even trying to pronounce, let alone slab all over your skin. Weightless and illuminating.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation
The newest foundation from the everywoman’s cosmetics brand, this is a lightweight gel that doesn’t compromise comfort. The “flexible formula”—glycerin and shea butter—is oil-free and moves with your skin to create a natural color-true look that lasts for up to 12 hours, even in humid climates.

Giorgio Armani Maestro Complexion Perfector Fusion Makeup
Eight years in the makeup making, Giorgio Armani attempts to create a new category with this foundation that beauty bloggers are claiming feels unlike any they’ve ever used before. So from here on out, no more calling it a foundation—this is “complexion perfector.” A blend of pigments and water-free oils, yet still all non-comedogenic, this is most likely the lightest foundation your fingertips will ever come across. Available in 12 shades, all skin tones are covered, literally. Maestro is like magic.

No7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation
Maybe the most uniquely scientific-based on the list, No7 teamed up with color printing experts Pantone to collaborate on this match made in canvas heaven. The minty team met up and took photos of over 2,000 women of various ethnicities, analyzed them, discovered specific “clusters” of tones, and delved deeper into each. The result? 17 shades of long-lasting foundations at an affordably impressive price. Stay Perfect, yes. But also stay under budget. Another futuristic-like feature: No7 counters feature hand-held devices with eight LED and a UV light to “read” your skin and determine which shade matches you best.
