This is a great, flawless foundation for a natural matte finish complete with buildable medium coverage. It helps to absorb and disperse oil for combination or oily skin, as well as containing moisturising ingredients. The colour matches M.A.C provide are also suited to everyone, with their ‘NC’ range for people with a yellow/golden/olive undertone and ‘NW’ for those with pink or rosy complexions. It lasts all day and effortlessly covers imperfections, creating the perfect base for your make up.

With light to medium coverage and light reflecting pearl particles, this foundation gives a natural-looking finish that instantly gives your skin a natural glow. It hides pores and imperfections without looking obvious or caked on, and blends easily to create an even complexion. Definitely an all-rounder perfect for any skin type.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation – £12.49 at Boots


This foundation comes in two versions – one for combination/oily skin and the other for normal/dry skin, which is great for a high street foundation. Both versions are oil-free and give medium to full coverage without looking heavy, and really does last all day without becoming patchy. The colour selection has both pink and yellow undertones, so there really is a choice for every skin type and colour.
