5 Foundations That Last All Day
Updated: Feb 14
When choosing a foundation for everyday use, there’s one characteristic that is a must: a long lasting, great formula. These foundation bases are some of my most tried and true, and won't disappear or separate with oil, sweat, or water. Some of these foundations are affordable and some are on the pricey side, but sometimes it's worth spending the extra money on a product that will give you amazing results! Here are my top 5 foundations for long lasting wear:
1. Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Foundation
This foundation has been my go-to for so many events, photoshoots & nights out with friends! The formula has a mousse like texture that blends beautifully with a damp makeup sponge or dense foundation brush. It has an SPF of 15 and when paired with the right setting powder, (I use the Pretty Vulgar Translucent Powder), this foundation will last anywhere from 8-12 hours without separating, caking or rubbing off. It comes in 40 different shades, and a little big goes a very long way!
2. ELF Cosmetics Flawless Finish Foundation
This foundation is so good, especially for the price point! For only $6 you get a beautiful, build-able foundation that blends in smoothly and seamlessly. The formula is light weight, and perfect for a natural look to your skin. The coverage is more on the light side, but it can be built up to a medium coverage leaving a beautiful satin finish. It's great for all skin types and for the price, you can't beat it!
3. Urban Decay Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation
This is a newer foundation that I am absolutely LOVING! The liquid formula allows you to build up the coverage to your liking, so if you are wanting light airy coverage or even full coverage for those glam looks then this is the right foundation for you. It's water proof, sweat proof and claims to last up to 24 hours. I have worn this foundation for at least12 hours and it stays perfectly without separating or looking like a hot mess! If you're needing a high end foundation that is worth the money, this is it!
4. Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick
If you're looking for a foundation stick that leaves a fresh and dewey finish, this is it! This foundation melts into the skin making it look radiant and glowy. With the right setting powder this full coverage product will last for hours! I love using it on "no makeup, makeup" looks and on my clients. This foundation is affordable and a little bit goes a long way!
5. Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Foundation
This is a wonderful foundation for all skin types! It leaves a fresh and hydrated finish that last up to 12 hours! When using a beauty blender, it melts into the skin so you can't even tell that you're wearing foundation which is a must for a lot of people. What's cool about this foundation is that it contains photochromic pigments that brightens, flower acids to help boost radiance and hyaluronic acid to attract moisture to the skin. I highly recommend this foundation!
