Translucent or semi-translucent coverage might be alright for some, but some of us want a full-coverage foundation. But 'full-coverage foundation' are words that may strike fear in the hearts of those who've ever battled tide marks and cakey faces. Luckily, today's foundations have light, hydrating formulations and clever light-diffusing particles to even out tired winter complexions and make you look like you've been airbrushed. Here's our pick of the best.More
Let's just say this is the UK's best selling foundation for a reason. Firstly, it has a really buildable consistency, which doesn't feel at all cakey or dry. Then there's the fact that from the moment you put it on, it does not shift until you take it off that night (we'd never recommend sleeping in a foundation, especially a high-coverage one). And finally, it comes in 42 shades worldwide.
They say, '8 hours of beauty sleep in a foundation.' We say, a smoothing base that's in it for the long haul, and doesn't falter when the going gets tough. Impressive stuff.
