Foundation is the base of your makeup. The right product helps even out your skin tone and creates a good canvas for all your other products. You don’t have to wear foundation, but if you choose to the right product elevates your entire makeup look. Buying a foundation doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Yes, you could drop £40+ on a bottle, however, you can find so many decent products for under £10. Today I’m sharing some of my favourite affordable foundation I’ve used over the years.
Primark Stick Foundation
If you’re looking for an affordable makeup range than look no further than PS.beauty. Especially if you want to experiment without splashing out loads of cash. This foundation stick has a simple black and white packaging with a clear lid so you can quickly see the colours. A lightweight foundation that is easy to apply and blend.
Their colour range, however, is lacking with only 8 shades in total. So finding a good colour match isn’t easy. However, if you can find a match the lighter and darker shades can be used for highlight and contour.
B.Flawless Silk Foundation
B. Flawless Silk Foundation has been designed as a light to medium coverage foundation which is also buildable, so you can find the coverage just right for you.
This non-oily foundation is blendable, lightweight and sheer, giving skin an uplifting glow however much you build it up. The silky formula has a natural feel and results in a youthful, luminous finish which will last all day.
I love that Superdrug has its own line of makeup and skincare. Affordable and Cruelty-Free, win-win in my opinion. This foundation is so lightweight it hardly feels like you’re wearing anything. The one thing I love about this foundation is that it comes in two finishes, Matter and Silk. As someone with dry skin, any foundation with a matte finish is a no go but the silk is fabulous to use. The light texture of this foundation means I can wear it as heavily or as lightly as I like.
The two downsides of this products are, firstly the shade range. Admittedly it’s better than the Primark one, but it still only has 12 which doesn’t provide enough variety. Secondly the packaging, it’s an odd combination of a pump top and a squeeze tube. When I first got it, I felt as if I needed three hands to get the products out. However, once you’ve got that down you’re golden.
Foundation just got faster! Launching in 18 shades and a range of undertones, Fast Base Foundation quickly perfects, contours and highlights your complexion.
The easy-to-apply stick formula melts into skin, blending seamlessly to leave a fresh and dewy finish.
This is another stick foundation. It’s so easy to apply, especially if you’re looking to use different colours for highlight and contour. As you can apply the different colours to different parts of the face and blend them together. It’s again a lightweight foundation that blends into the skin. You can use your fingers, a sponge or a brush depending on your preference.
Revolution has the largest shade range out of all these suggestions, 18 shades in all with a range of undertones. Covering cool, warm and neutral skin undertones. This I especially like as personally I have very pale skin, with a neutral undertone. That is a very difficult combination to find in a foundation.
Create a silky, breathable base with Revolution PRO Foundation Drops.
In 18 skin-true shades, this ultra-lightweight, water-based formula creates an undetectable finish on all skin tones. Use a few drops for a sheer wash of colour or layer up to build natural-looking medium coverage.
Foundation drops are my favourite formula that you can find foundation in. They can be used along directly onto the skin, or you can mix them into another product. For example, into a moisturiser to create your own tinted moisturiser, if you like something a bit lighter.
The drops are definitely the most buildable, as the dropper gives you far more control over how much products you use at once.
Like all Revolution products, this foundation is available in 18 shades. Personally, this isn’t the best everyday foundation as it has a matte finish. But I do enjoy using it when I want more control over the coverage I have on the skin.
I have only scratched the surface of affordable foundation ranges. These are the ones I have used. Are there any I’ve mentioned that you’ve tried? What’s your favourite affordable foundation?
