Best Foundations

Foundation shopping can be a traumatic experience. With SO many brands and types to choose from, sometimes it seems less hassle to just buy a balaclava and be done with it!

\r\n


But stress no more, as we\'ve been busy testing out the new releases and cult classics! Here is our round-up of Team Company\'s fave foundations...

We Test The Best Foundation

Best Foundations

Stila Perfect and Correct, £28.50

\r\n

\"This foundation applied to my skin really easily and was easy to blend in for a natural finish. It left my skin feeling nicely hydrated without feeling too heavy, and the coverage was medium, which is ideal for me. I think this would be fab for the summer months, when you want something light and fresh on your skin. The swirly effect means it looks really cool in the bottle too, which is always a bonus!\"

Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Liquid Make Up, £22

\r\n

\"I\'d been suffering from breakouts on my chin and forehead and think that long-wear foundations blocking my pores had something to do with it, so I switched to this foundation – and I haven\'t looked back! It\'s oil-free, which means that there\'s no trace of shine, even after a day in the office – but it\'s not drying either. The colour matching is great, and my skin looks flawless. I\'m a convert!\"

Best Foundations

YSL Fond De Touche Éclat (Launching nationwide from 9th July)

\r\n

\"Finding a foundation colour to match my unappeasable transparent skin is usually nigh-on impossible; I usually mix extra-light with a bit of white. But with YSL\'s new extension to their best selling highlighter - Le teint touch éclat, I\'ve found my new pale best friend. In shade B10 it appears for once; I’m not the fairest of them all. Available in 22 shades separated in three groups- rose, beige and gold, B10 is the lightest from the beige range.

\r\n

The light coverage flawlessly banishes blemishy parts but doesn’t make your pores think they are drowning in mud (picture Artax in the swamp in The Neverending Story) but also has the capability of being layered up for a seriously pure complexion!\"

Best Foundations

L\'Oréal Lumi Magique, £10.99

\r\n

\"This foundation features \'liquid light technology\', which basically means it makes your skin look amazingly radiant and glowy. This glides on so smoothly and provides excellent great medium coverage that doesn\'t make you feel like you\'re wearing a mask. The pump applicator makes it hygienic to use and helps you control the amount you use so you don\'t waste any product!\"

Best Foundations

Illamasqua Skin Base, £25.00

\r\n


\"Illamasqua are fab because they cater for the extra pale and go all the way through to extra dark foundation too. Their sell-out Skin Base foundation is adored by the beauty industry because it doesn\'t include SPF so it photographs amazingly (for us, this means it\'s profile pic friendly!) It\'s suitable for all skin types and is easily blendable for whatever coverage you need.\"

Best Foundations

Estée Lauder Double Wear, £26.50

\r\n


\"This is a cult foundation that I repurchase time and time again. I have an annoyingly uneven skin tone - I\'m really pale but with quite a lot of redness in areas. This foundation offers a full coverage, so covers up all of my insecurities, leaving behind a flawless and matte look. It can feel a bit drying, so you need to use a good moisturiser as a base (or mix moisturiser in with the product for a sheerer coverage), but the end result is worth it - flawless skin that stays that way all day!\"

Best Foundations

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, £9.99

\r\n


\"I have very dry skin and it\'s quite difficult for me to find a foundation which doesn\'t make my skin look like it\'s peeling, but this one is perfect for my troublesome skin. Ingredients include the apricot, melon and apple, which have lots of hydration and radiance-boosting properties so it has a lovely fuity scent too!\"

Best Foundations

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Foundation, £36

\r\n


\"This foundation smells absolutely amazing - I don\'t know if it\'s normal to go around sniffing foundation but I definitely do with this! The best way I would describe the texture of this foundation is it\'s like a thicker tinted moisturiser. It has done wonders for my dry skin! It has a really great medium coverage and is very buildable if you want more coverage - also a little goes a LONG way, I use the smallest amount to get a really nice coverage, so although it is expensive, I think you get a lot for the money. The colour match is amazing and I think it would be really suited to fair skins as it has the SPF 25 in it. The main selling point for me though is how moisturising it is, not one for those who have oily skin, but if you suffer from dry or sensitive/sore skin, I think it\'s a must.\"
