If you are looking to switch-up your foundation then read on to find the best one for you

With so many things to consider when choosing a foundation, from the type of coverage and finish to the added benefits so many next-gen foundations now bring, we’ve tried to take out some of the trial and error in choosing your new favourite
foundation bottle, model shot and product sample

BEST FOR OLDER SKIN

Magic Foundation, £34 Charlotte Tilbury 
Charlotte spent five years developing her perfect magic formula. Great for all skintypes, it’s collagen-boosting properties help plump skin, and mushroom extract, vitamin C and hyaluronic spheres tighten, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and help to even skin tone on more mature complexions.

Loose Mineral Foundation by bareminerals

BEST FOR OILY SKIN

Loose Mineral Foundation, £29 bareMinerals 
Surprisingly glowy for a powder foundation, this mattifying formula designed to absorb excess oil comes in 30 great shades.

BEST BALM FOUNDATION

Foundation Balm, £42 Kevyn Aucoin 
We love this sheer foundation which is perfect when all you need is a bit of unifying colour and want a dewy finish. It melts into skin and blends easily for a no-make-up, make-up finish.

Shiseido foundation with product sample

BEST FOR HARD WORKING SKIN

Synchro Self-Refreshing Foundation, £40 Shiseido 
Humidity, oil and heat-proof, this foundation works as hard as you do. It also won’t cake and its oil-free formula and 30 versatile shades make it suitable for all skin types.

BEST FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Makeup Flex Foundation Stick, £32 MILK Makeup
The all-new Flex Foundation Stick gives medium coverage but, infused with blue lotus for hydration and chamomile to soothe, it helps to keep skin comfortable while looking perfect all day.

Clinique foundation bottle with product sample behind

BEST FOR FULL COVERAGE

Beyond Perfecting 2-in-1 Foundation & Concealer, £26.99 Clinique 
This lightweight, oil-free formula still cleverly manages full coverage and the stick applicator makes it so easy to hide any troublesome blemishes.

Dior foundation bottle with product sample behind

BEST FOR SHEER COVERAGE

Skin Glow Foundation, £37 Dior
More of a tinted moisturiser than a true foundation, this sheer formula boosts moisture levels and leaves skin radiant with a healthy-looking glow.

BEST FOR A HEALTHY GLOW

Les Beiges Glow Foundation, £40 Chanel 
An all-time favourite, this silky foundation comes in 35 great shades and blends beautifully, leaving skin with a heathy, natural-looking glow.

BEST FOR ON THE GO COVERAGE

Vanish Seamless Foundation Stick, £45 Hourglass
This easy-to-use stick combines the coverage of a concealer, the fluidity of a liquid and the weightlessness of a powder in a long-wearing, waterproof formula which gives maximum coverage with minimal effort.
