1. Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundations, from £8.50

Available in 12 suits-all shades, this creamy foundation is beautifully light, incredibly blendable and invisible to the eye, except for the luminous glow it leaves behind.

2. The Ordinary Coverage Foundation, £5.95

Delivering impressive coverage that may be a little thick for some. Lighten the load by mixing this with your regular moisturiser or a tinted moisturiser for a radiant, soft-focus finish. Or, apply it all over straight from the bottle for a base that will last all night.

3. L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Longwear Foundation, £10.79

Sitting somewhere between a tinted moisturiser and a fuller foundation, this much-loved base has fast become a professional make-up artist staple thanks to its longevity. Expect coverage that stays put for hours while leaving behind a smooth finish that still allows your skin’s texture to come through.

4. Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation, £12.99

With an in-built primer and concealer, this easy-to-build formula locks everything in place for a mattifying effect that doesn’t look cakey or dry and stays put for hours. It really is a one-stop-shop for your base needs.

5. NYX Total Control Drop Foundaiton, £14

Boasting an impressive 24-shade range, there’s a colour for everyone with this pipette-style foundation. It gives decent coverage but is sheer enough that you never look overdone. Use it with a brush and you’ll find it blends seamlessly. Just a couple of drops is all you need for the most natural look.

6. Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation, £9.99

With an innovative moisturiser-like texture, this latest offering from Revlon feels amazing on the skin. It’s incredibly lightweight too, so you never have to worry about it settling into fine lines or creasing on your eyelids come 4pm. Designed to give a natural, blurring effect, you’ll notice a natural glow ensue that looks like your skin, only better.

7. Kiko Liquid Skin Second Skin Foundation, £18.99

Laced with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, it’s easy to see why this is a slightly higher price point than the others on this list. It’s a medium coverage and great for all skin types, but thanks to its’ nourishing and hydrating formula, it’s especially good on dry complexions. A little goes a very long way too, so you can expect to be eking this out for months on end.
