At Match My Makeup, we have seen and felt thousands upon thousands of foundations over the years, so we know what works and what doesn't. From high-end luxury brands to drugstore staples, we've tried them all and have come to appreciate the importance of finding the perfect foundation for our skin types and needs.
As experts in the field, we believe that a good foundation is the cornerstone of any makeup look. It not only evens out the complexion but also sets the tone for the rest of your makeup. With so many options available in the market, it can be overwhelming to find the right one, but fear not! Our team has done the hard work for you and has curated a list of our favorite foundations.
So, whether you're in search of a full-coverage foundation for a night out or a light, everyday option, we've got you covered. Join us as we share our all-time favorites:
I love the satin finish of this foundation, it is so skin-like yet offers a subtle luminosity. It’s very longwearing so I never have to touch up, and feels undetectable on the skin. I also love that it is alcohol, paraben and fragrance free.

I have been loving this cushion foundation - the coverage and texture has been just flawless. I find the coverage has been enough for me to hide the shadows around the face, and it gives luminosity to the skin without being oily.

I like it because it's super easy and forgiving to work with (I use hands and brush). It settles nicely as you wear it - doesn't feel dry nor creases. A natural smooth finish and evens out my redness. I also think it’s a really good option for novices like myself who don't know much about makeup but want something that's good quality and reliable.

This is the best foundation I’ve ever tried. A little bit goes a long way - I like how the pump is a little half pump so you can just use a small amount at a time, and build up as needed. I use it for light, medium or full coverage - depending on my skin and the occasion. It offers the most beautiful skin-like finish. It is easy to blend with a hand, brush or sponge, and is self-setting!

This foundation is just perfect. My skin looks radiant, fresh and alive. It wears really well on the skin. Because I have dry skin, the hydrating and plumping benefits in the ingredients are great for me and make my face feel quenched.

This long-wearing matte foundation is my all-time pick. I find it to be versatile and reliable. It provides great coverage so I can use as little or as much as I need. This is a good option for oily skin.
- Rachel (Product Manager)
I love how light this foundation is on the skin. The light to medium coverage is perfect for both everyday wear and to build up for a little more coverage. My favorite thing about it is the glow it gives!
- Toia (Color Analyst)
I have been loving this foundation and how it feels and looks on the skin. It was great when I was in the UK in the cold - it kept my skin looking hydrated and glowing and I wore it every single day! I have also been testing out the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder which I am enjoying too - I am loving the light weight formulas at the moment.
