Finding the best foundation for your skin type is not exactly a walk in the park - shade, tone, coverage, finish - there's a lot to consider. Add in different skin concerns (oily, dry, a bit of both) an it starts to seem like an unattainable feat. But when you do find that perfect fit, The One that gives you all the coverage you desire and fulfils your every skin need, the epic search suddenly becomes worthwhile.
In fact, a recent survey from Revlon ColorStay Foundation has revealed that 1 in 10 women (11%) say that finding their perfect foundation is as important as finding their perfect partner - and we're inclined to agree with them.
So whether you prefer something light and dewy for a day-to-day natural makeup look or some hardcore full coverage that erases any blemish or dark circle it touches, we've got the perfect match for you.
Once you've selected your perfect foundation from the list below, make sure you peruse our genius hacks for applying your cosmetic of choice like an absolute pro.
6 pro tips to always remember:
1. If you are buying for everyday wear, perhaps keep the coverage a little lighter or go for a tinted moisturiser and then use one of our best concealers to target any areas in need of extra coverage.
2. Choose three shades you think are a close match, swiping all three side-by-side down your cheek towards your jawline. The shade that seemingly disappears, wins.
3. Step outside and check the shade in natural light.
4. Have a foundation for when you're tanned (even if it's fake tan!), and one for when you go weeks without sun.
