There’s cheap and then there’s frugal. When it comes to makeup, it pays to know the difference. Here are the best foundations that will leave you looking like a million without costing just as much.
L’Oreal Paris True Match – $9
A mainstay since it first launched in 1994, L’Oreal’s liquid foundation is almost too good to be true at its price point. With 45 different shades to choose from and a smooth application that looks and feels natural without requiring a thick coat, it’s hard to pass up.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte & Poreless – $5
The Fit Me! brand is a must for anyone with oily skin. Without being cakey, the foundation softens pore appearance while keeping facial oils in check. Pair that with a velvety, natural look, and you have a foundation fit for any face.
Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows – $17
Though this foundation brushes the $20 limit, it does so for a good reason. Unlike the previous two options, Burt’s Bees stays true to its commitment to keep their products as natural as possible. It’s an eco-friendly solution designed to nourish and hydrate the skin while adding to your natural beauty.
Colourpop No Filter Stick Foundation – $11
If you’d rather have a foundation that is easy to apply on the move, look no further than Colourpop’s stick foundation. This velvety matte is easy to build on or sheer out. It’s also a top choice for those that only use foundation on certain areas of their face rather than all over.
Morphe Fluidity – $18
At the highest price point on this list, Morphe’s Fluidity is so for a good reason. Water-resistant, sweat proof, and transfer-resistant, it’s a long-lasting choice that easily endures harsh conditions.
