Foundation is an actual must-have for perfect-looking skin. It makes a flawless complexion possible in one simple step (plus a brush or Beauty Blender) however tired, hungover or lacklustre your complexion is looking when you wake up. 

Whatever your skin type, we've tried and tested the best foundations in the industry to find you the ones you need to know about, that are actually worth your money, so you don’t have get a case of foundation regret when it’s just not quite right.

Whether you want serious coverage, a radiant au natch complexion or to fight that midday shine with a handy on-the-go (read: on-the bus) compact, there is one for everyone; you just need to find the best foundation for you and our InStyle Foundation Guide is just the place to find it. And for a bespoke foundation suggestion to help you get that supermodel glow, all you need is five minutes and a trip to our sister site Powder.

It was a season of flawless glowy faces (to complement the mega statement eyes and lips). Recreate the autumn/winter fashion week looks by ditching the mattifying powder and leaving your foundation with a glowing sheen. Team with a pop red lip, like the models at Joseph.

Whatever your skin concerns, there WILL be a foundation to suit you. We’ve rounded up the best foundations for oily skin to help combat that shine and excess oil production and the best foundations for dry skin for you to create a just-been-on-holiday glow even when your complexion is lacking moisture.
