Beautiful makeup always starts with gorgeous skin and finding your dream foundation finish is the perfect first step.
Different occasions and skin days call for different foundation finishes. Although we may have one favourite formula, we often have different foundations on hand for if we want a lighter, glowing finish or a full matte glam look.
To help you find your perfect finishes and build out your foundation wardrobe, we have curated a list of our top foundations by finishes so you can discover what makes them so special.
How to find the best foundation finish for you…
If you’re always on the go and want to simply enhance your complexion in one simple step, a sheer coverage base such as a tinted moisturiser is is perfect for you. Applied either with your fingers or a sponge, sheer coverage bases give an effortlessly perfected look with minimal coverage.
Sheer coverage bases are also often very hydrating and lightweight on the skin making them perfect for those with slightly more dry skin. Perfect for summer, sheer bases simply provide a little coverage to the skin, evening out skin tones and adding subtle radiance without masking the complexion.
Our favourite: Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser
Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser blends effortlessly into the skin and hydrates, provides beautiful sheer coverage and even protects the skin with SPF15. The velvety smooth formula glides onto the complexion and can be layered to add additional coverage where needed.
Enriched with a unique blend of antioxidant-rich Thyme and Butterfly Bush, Just Skin works to protect your complexion to keep skin clear while an addition of Sodium Hyaluronate seals in moisture for a plump, luminous finish. Perfect for city skin.
