The new wave of coverage comes packed with complexion-boosting ingredients.
The best foundations to try now
Do you remember when the only foundations available were those that were mostly matte, caked after an hour of applying and had a way of sinking into those pesky fine lines?
Thank goodness we’ve come a long way since then and there are now hundreds of different foundation formulas to suit every skin tone, type and desired finish – be it glow, shine-free or full coverage. And now, the latest wave of foundations is taking things up a notch by doubling as skincare.
Scroll below to see our round-up on three of the best complexion-boosting bases to shop now.
HD Perfect Cover-up Foundation, Inglot, visit City Centre Bahrain
Infused with ultra-fine high definition pigments and enriched with white truffle extract to balance out your skin’s moisture levels, this medium to full coverage foundation can be found in many a make-up artist’s pro kit. It not only evens out your skin tone and covers imperfections, the buildable formula is also hypoallergenic so it’s a top pick for anyone with sensitive skin.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation, Sephora, visit City Centre Bahrain
Love the full coverage airbrushed look? Turn to Tarte’s best-selling foundation for a long-lasting flawless coverage that you won’t need to touch up throughout the day. Infused with nourishing vitamin E and skin-balancing Amazonian clay, the oil-free matte formula will easily mask any redness, spots and scarring to create a smooth finish.
Pro beauty tip: Full coverage foundations are best applied with a damp beauty blender or sponge. Work in quick dabbing motions until you build up the desired coverage – and don’t forget to include your neck to keep the colour looking natural and seamless.
Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation, Sephora, visit City Centre Bahrain
Perfect if you prefer a lighter dewy coverage, this skin smart foundation is made from light-reflecting pigments that blur out imperfections to give off a soft-focused glow. The lightweight, buildable formula also comes packed with hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture, making it one of the best foundations for dry skin.
