3 Skin-Loving Foundations That Promise Flawless Coverage

Make-up artists swear by Sisley-Paris products for its silky finishes, plant-based skincare ingredients and radiance-boosting fruit extracts. In particular, its foundations do so much more than just even out your complexion – they also deliver glow-giving coverage, instant hydration and protection, and come in a great range of shades. Here are three of our favourites for every skin type, with a demonstration from make-up artist Nicola Chapman on how best to use them.

Best For: A Barely There Feel

Those who want buildable coverage, without that heavy or greasy feel, should try this base instead. Lightweight and sheer, it glides on to conceal darkness and uneven tone, while also providing a hint of luminosity. It’s ideal if you don’t want to feel like you’re wearing anything but want an even canvas without any visible dark spots or uneven areas of skin. Available in numerous shades, there’s something for everyone, while the new classification of undertones makes it easier than ever to find your perfect match. 

Application Hack: Because this formula is sheer and easy to build upon, we recommend using a brush and applying this in light layers. Start at the centre of your face, moving the foundation down your T-zone and around the nose, then onto your chin. These are the areas which tend to need the most coverage, so once these are done, you’ll see the rest of your skin doesn’t need as much. You can always go back in and add a little more if needed.

Best For: A Long-Lasting Finish

This is the oil-free formula to go for if you want a foundation that won’t slide off or settle into fine lines come 4pm. Brimming with smoothing and illuminating skincare ingredients – think natural plant compounds of mallow and gardenia flower extracts and a firming mineral complex – it works hard to improve the texture and appearance of your complexion over time. We love how the silky, skin-blurring texture never feels like it’s clogging up your skin either, while antioxidant-rich buckwheat seeds help to strengthen it and defend it from any pollution.

Application Hack: We recommend using a sponge for this formula – dab a few drops onto a Beautyblender and apply it in circular motions from the centre of your face outwards. Keep dabbing and bouncing until the formula has melted into your skin and the pigments have settled. You’ll soon see a soft, velvety finish start to appear.

Best For: A Dose Of Glow-y Hydration

Sisley excels at creating hybrid formulas and this is one of its best. A tinted moisturiser with plenty of skincare benefits, this luminous formula is a brand bestseller for a reason. It offers lightweight coverage that looks healthy, concealing just enough while still letting your skin’s natural texture breathe through. The texture is creamy and nourishing – with plant and fruit extracts – which makes it especially beneficial for those with dry or dehydrated complexions.

Application Hack: Buff this formula in gently using a flat foundation brush so you get the formula to lie flat and avoid disturbing any products applied underneath. If you want to make this look more like a tint, massage it in with clean fingers, just like you would a moisturiser to really work the formula and the added SPF into your complexion.
