The majority of makeup users use a foundation to even out the skin tone and cover up any blemishes or red spots. It’s also used as a base for the rest of your makeup. And since we always use it when putting on makeup, it’s easy to quickly run out of it. Which forces us to take yet another trip to any cosmetics store to repurchase it.
That being said, there are foundations out there that have amazing coverage, but the price is something that we don’t like and definitely a pain to repurchase. But what if I told you that there are also foundations that have stunning results with affordable prices and won’t empty out you wallet?
A few of our favorite cosmetic brands are on the hunt to achieve the perfect foundations that will suit our liking and limit the price that will have us jumping up and down with joy. So, we picked out these top five best foundations that will want you going back to the store for seconds.
