A good makeup base is at the very core of any makeup collection. Even for women who don’t need to wear it every day, a flawless-finish foundation is still a necessity. With all the makeup companies in the market, from drugstore to designer brands, buying the right products can be overwhelming. Although owning multiple products to obtain a flawless complexion is ideal, having at least one lightweight, medium coverage formula is an absolute must for any woman. Below are a few tried and tested winning brands that are worth a try.

Top luxury brand

From Christian Dior to Nars, there are a myriad luxury brand makeup companies that are top sellers. Even though many of these brands are popular and have very good products the top luxury brand foundation on this list is Urban Decay Naked Skin. This is a new, lightweight product from Urban Decay, but it is already very popular. Urban Decay is cruelty free, and for a luxury brand their products are still affordable. Naked Skin is a lightweight foundation with medium coverage and can easily be layered for areas that need extra coverage. It comes in an array of colors for anyone with fair skin to very dark skin. Identifying the right shade for you is made extremely easy due to the number scale they use to separate shades into beige undertones and pink undertones. Another great aspect of this product is that it has light reflectors, making it a great makeup for taking photographs or HD quality film.

Top drugstore brand

Revlon 24 Hour Colorstay is an amazing product that gives you a flawless finish for under $15. It comes in two formulas, one for dry skin and one for oily to combination skin. Revlon has done a great job making this lightweight formula high-end quality. For a quarter of the price, Colorstay can give you similar results to any comparable designer product. It comes in a great range of colors, and finding the right shade is easy. This matte formula blends smoothly and has medium to full coverage. One of the greatest benefits of this product is that it is long-lasting and doesn’t leave you needing to retouch your face halfway through the day.

Make Up Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation is the overall winner. Make Up Forever is very popular among professional makeup artists because it is ideal for modeling and filming. This $42 foundation is more expensive than most, but it lives up to its rave reviews. Although their makeup is expensive, it is definitely worth the price.
