The one thing every girl has in her makeup bag is foundation. No matter whether you’re a beauty junkie or occasional dabbler, everybody wants to give their skin a little extra boost by smoothing their complexion and blurring flaws.
There are so many different foundations out there, so here are our favorites for every problem right now!
Best For All Day Coverage
High coverage foundations will smooth over any spots or imperfections, but a lightweight foundation is still comfortable to wear without feeling like you’re applying a heavy layer of makeup over your skin. Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is velvet smooth, but perfect for people who need amazing coverage that will resurface your skin while being light and buildable.
Estée Lauder Double Wear, $40
Best For Ultra High Coverage
If you’re a fan of that super high coverage for blurred, perfect skin, the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation was formulated for the film and TV industry’s most advanced technology, so you know it won’t falter even in the harshest of lights. It won’t require touch-ups and it won’t bleed or streak.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD, $44
Best For Natural Coverage
If you want your foundation to cover redness and imperfections but look like a second skin then Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk is for you. What we love about this foundation is that it’s sheer and glowing and you can build it up to be full coverage.

Best For Hydration
If you’ve been looking for a foundation that delivers coverage without drying out your skin or mattifying it, Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation is SPF15, ultra hydrating and even contains lavender oil. It’s perfect for anyone with normal to dry skin, and the diversity of shades means it’s perfect for all skintones, too.

Best For Problem Solving
If you want a multi-functional foundation that really is magic, Charlotte Tilbury ‘Magic’ Foundation has Broad Spectrum SPF and covers dark circles and is a cross between a luxury cream and a foundation. It’s perfect for all skin tones and ages, because it’s lightweight but intelligent so it covers pigmentation, acne scars, imperfections and signs of ageing.

Best For Fast Application
Sometimes you just want a foundation that’s easy to apply, hydrating and buildable. When you’re running out the door you don’t have time to expertly apply a liquid foundation, so this stick foundation is a life-saver. You can decide whether you want to use it as a concealer, a sheer coverage or want a heavier look, a sweep of the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick will cover all bases.
