Like any other artwork, your makeup look won't be the masterpiece you'd like it to be without the canvas being flawless. Acing the base is important, they always say. And it's true! But more than just giving us a nice jump-off for creating a look we love, we also want it to be something we barely feel is there. It's a tall order, for sure, but we're happy to say that our panel of beauty experts at the 2018 Clozette Beauty Awards have found five that deliver.
Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation
Weightless, breathable, natural-looking — those are just a few of the words used by people who have used this foundation. It has soft-blurring optical spheres that leave a pore-less finish, which can make any user "happy" (get it?).
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
This foundation gives off a soft-matte finish that's buildable and long-wearing. It's also said to have a climate-adaptive formula that's resistant to sweat and heat. But the best part? The game-changing shade selection.
