Who doesn't give in and splurge on makeup every now and again? It may have the same price as some of your monthly bills, but your skin's appearance can outweigh the cost. Here are five foundations worth the splurge.

Dior's Capture Totale Foundation instantly evens your skin tone. Anti-aging ingredients ensure dullness is corrected by giving you HD perfection. Look radiant while protecting your skin with SPF 25 for $82.

Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation is ideal for those humid, Southern climates. Fine lines, wrinkles, and pores will be less-defined as you rock this buildable formula. Stay fabulous all day for $85 per bottle.

Chanel created a cream foundation that'll make you feel bare-faced. Your natural radiance shines through with the help of diamond powder, vanilla, and other plant-based ingredients. Be flawless with this cover-up and complementary brush for $135.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer and Foundation offers a dewy, full-coverage look. The makeup also includes matching concealer to help hide dark under-eyes.

Clé de Peau Beauté currently holds the title as the most expensive foundation on the market. Its ultra-luxurious, medium-coverage makes skin luminous while hiding imperfections. The formula inside the diamond-cut jar helps to hydrate the skin while repairing it from environmental damage. Rejuvenate and smooth your skin for $250.

Spending more on these foundations may feel hefty, but it'll make your skin look photoshopped in real life.
