When choosing a tried-and-true foundation for everyday use, there’s one characteristic that’s non-negotiable: Long-lasting. There’s no point in swooning over a base formula that will fade, crack, or cake after an hour or two.
Here are the long-lasting foundations that stay put all day long:
Bobbi Brown Skin-Loving Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15
The foundation is everything that its name says – skin-loving, weightless, and long wear. The fact that it comes with SPF 15 is an add-on. Just a pump is enough to cover the whole face and still be assured that the coverage is not compromised. The range of shades available is enough to find you the one that matches your skin tone perfectly and the matte-finish is all that you need under the face mask. It’s also available in a mini size – this factor always works for me when I need to try a product before investing in a full-size bottle.
Kay Beauty Hydrating Foundation
TBH, there’s no Kay Beauty product that I don’t like and this one is my favourite. It’s a budget buy and a total value for money. I’d rate it a complete 10 for its stay, formula, and finish. It’s available in 20 shades, so you can definitely find your match. If you have dry skin, this is perhaps what you are looking for.
M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15
I like this product for the range of shades available, which is over 40! And the fact that it spreads like butter on the skin and gives a soft velvety finish that is light on the skin, but not on the spots. You don’t need any concealer with this product and a little goes a long way. It doesn’t give up under the pressure of face masks and humidity. What more do we want?
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup With SPF 10
Saving the best one for the last, this one is costly but definitely an investment. It gives full-coverage with a natural finish which makes the skin tone look even without adding layers of products. It stays put for at least eight to 10 hours and I prefer wearing it when I am out for events, which need me to stay on my toes with no touch-up time. If you are attending a wedding in the next couple of months or are a bride yourself, Double Wear Stay-in-Place should be a part of your makeup kit.
