Best Substitutes for Foundation
Foundation is a girl’s best friend. But some of us are not a big fan of foundation due to various reasons. Most of the days, I don’t want to do an elaborate foundation application routine with brushes, setting powder etc. But I still want the fake the flawless look! So, I reach out for my foundation substitutes. Here’s a list of some of my favorite substitutes that I have tried over time and they work very well. Now if you are looking for heavy coverage, these won’t give you that. Most of these are light to moderate coverage.
So, if this is what you are looking for, then keep reading. Click on the pictures below to shop.
Olay CC Cream
If you have almost perfect skin, this will work great for you. It’s highly moisturizing and gives you a dewy look.
Supergoop BB Cream and Smashbox CC Cream
Coverage- Light- Medium
Sunscreen covers blemishes and moisturizes! What more can you ask for? I reach out for this quite often as my substitute for foundation
Baremineral Power Foundation
Technically, this is not a substitute for foundation as it is a foundation. But it’s very light and airy. If you have oily skin, this will work like magic!
Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum
This is MY FAVORITE! It has the goodness of face serum and covers almost all skin imperfections. I love that it’s a makeup item that nourishes your skin as well. Try this and you will surely thank me. :-)
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer
The best drug store tinted skin enhancer. I love Neutrogena products and this one is no exception.
It also has SPF 20 which is not bad at all.
