The 10 Best Foundations, Chosen by Makeup Artists
Picking out a new foundation is a notoriously difficult process. There's plenty to consider when making this important makeup decision, but with the help of some experts, we're hoping to simplify your glam. A handful of makeup artists are allowing you a peek inside their beauty kits and sharing their picks for the best foundation.
Deciding on a foundation should begin with familiarizing yourself with your skin, makeup artist AJ Crimson suggested. "Know the look you want to achieve," he said. "If you have dry skin you don't want a matte foundation. If you want to look fresh and dewy, you want a foundation that dries with a dewy or semi matte skin-like finish and vice versa."
How foundation appears on the skin also comes down to your application method. While some experts have cautioned against using your fingers, Crimson notes that it remains a personal choice. He pointed to blenders and sponges as possible options, adding, "When it comes to traditional foundation brushes, I find they are harder to work with for me and can streak depending on the formulation."
