Choosing a foundation is like dating. Or finding a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. You've got to go through a lot of duds to find 'the one'. It is what it is.
Sadly, it's not great for your bank account - buying and trailing lots of foundations, that is - which is why as a makeup artist who's tried hundreds of products, I thought I'd take you through the pros and cons of four of our most popular foundations.
From coverage and finish to the price tag and shade ranges, keep scrolling for rapid fire foundation facts to help you choose which product to add to your next Adore order.
1. Designer Brands Hydrating Luminous Foundation, $19.99.
Medium coverage - I like to buff it into the skin using a firm kabuki foundation brush.
Dewy, luminous finish that's great for dry skin but oily skin types may not love this.
Contains a hyaluronic acid concentrate to keep the skin hydrated throughout the day.
Downfall is the shade range, only 12 shades available.
Why it's so good:
I didn't think heaps of this product before I tried it but now, Designer Brands Hydrating Luminous Foundation is one of my personal favourites. As soon as it touched my skin, I was like, "where has this been all my life and why aren't more people talking about it?"
