When it comes to finding the best foundation, we know you're looking for one that will have you covered no matter what the situation. And depending on your skin needs, that best foundation may be one that provides you with full and long-lasting coverage or perhaps a lighter formula that works well with oily skin. For some individuals the best foundations are those that offer a diverse range of shades or those that won't break the bank while providing users with airbrushed-like skin.

But with so many foundations out there, it can be hard discovering the perfect one to suit your complexion's individualized needs.
