When it comes to foundation, there’s much more to think about other than just the shade range. You have to also look at the ingredients, formula, finish, and how well it resists heat, sweat, and oil. But did you know that less than a century ago, foundations weren’t this complicated?

There used to be only one type of commercial foundation called the “Pan-Cake” – a water-resistant powder foundation used in films. But now, if you browse through the makeup aisle, you’ll notice that foundation has marked its place as one of the most innovative beauty products in the market with its wide range of choices.

So how did we get from Pan-Cake to the foundations we now know and love? Let’s take a trip down makeup memory lane to learn more about the evolution of foundation.


Powder foundation

The most popular powder foundation during Hollywood’s golden era was the Pan-Cake makeup. It glided flawlessly over any blemishes the actor might have had and adapted perfectly to the harsh studio lights. It was an absolute must-have for all women. The problem with it, though? The powder was very drying and would look cakey on more mature skin.


Liquid/spray-on foundation

Since the popularity of Pan-Cake makeup dwindled, the new ‘it’ foundation formula was the liquid and spray-on foundation. This formula created a smooth and even canvas just like Pan-Cake, but didn’t emphasise any dryness on the skin. These foundations also came in different types of coverage (sheer, light, medium, and full) which gave women more control over the finish of their skin.



Liquid foundations remained the ultimate holy grail product for a while until cushion foundations entered the market. Popularised by Korean beauty brands, the cushion foundation comes in a regular-sized compact with a sponge applicator, a mirror, and a foundation-soaked sponge inside. This product combined the convenience of a compact powder foundation with the lightweight formula of a liquid for quick touch-ups on the go.


Cushion Stick

With the wave of cushion products at an all-time high, it’s only natural that a cushion foundation stick would eventually hit the market – such as Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup. So what makes it different?

It’s more hygienic than a regular cushion foundation as you can remove the sponge to clean it; easier to track how much you have left as the foundation gets shorter and shorter the more product you use; and its packaging is customisable so you can add a touch of your personality to your new favourite makeup product.

But what we love the most about it is its ease of use. Just tap, buff, and blend for easy on-the-go coverage with a natural looking finish.

Living a fast-paced lifestyle while looking flawless and stylish isn’t easy. Since every minute of your day counts for something like meetings or brainstorming sessions or even just a chill night out with friends, you probably barely have time to eat, prep your outfits, and do your beauty routine without feeling a wave of exhaustion at the end of the day.

But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Women today can now have it all – an amazing job, a great family, and of course, a stress-free morning routine.

It may seem impossible now if you’re looking at your tightly-packed schedule; but trust us, with these 5 time-saving tips and tricks, you’ll be slaying the “on-the-go” lifestyle in no time.


Store easy-to-make meals

Before your work-week begins, try to prepare as many meals as you can for the whole week and just store them in your refrigerator. So when you get up the morning or come home after work, all you have to do is heat them up and that’s it! No more cooking and cleaning pots and pans, which can take up a lot of time.


Plan your outfits for the week

Just like food, outfits call for preparation too. Get your clothes sorted, choose the ones you want to wear for each day, and arrange them from Monday to Friday. You’ll be surprised at how quick your morning routine actually is when you’re not staring into your wardrobe and deciding what to wear.


Use makeup sticks

Makeup sticks are perfect for women on-the-go because they’re easy to apply and fits in purses for quick touch-ups throughout the day. While there are plenty of lip-and-cheek products and 2-in-1 sticks out there, when it comes to multi-purpose base products, not so much.

Luckily, the beauty industry has listened and have started coming out with foundation sticks that can double-up as concealers, highlighters, and contour products – such as the Laneige Brush Pact and the new Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup; the brand has taken the lead in creating a trendy new way to apply foundation by combining the dewy finish of cushion pacts with the ease of makeup sticks.

All you need to achieve an even canvas is to tap it onto your face, buff it in, and blend away. Its second-skin effect will provide you with coverage that feels and looks like skin. But if you want more coverage, or want a natural-looking contour, this product works for that as well as it comes with a wide shade range.


Keep a To-Do list

Being organised with your tasks for the day is one way to save time. It will help you plan ahead and allocate enough minutes and hours for each activity, and you will feel incredibly satisfied and less stressed as you cross each item off your list.


Prepare your bag the night before

We know how different purses go with different outfits. So before you head to bed, make sure you transfer everything you need into the bag you’ll be using the following day. Once you’re ready to go in the morning, you won’t be stressing out trying to find missing keys or cards or stressing about whether or not you’re forgetting something!
