We love foundation here at Beaut HQ, there's no denying that. From budget to luxury, sheer to full coverage and everything in between, we can't get enough of the stuff. But you know what we love most of all? Foundations that perform well, look great and don't break the bank.
We've rounded up three of our tried and tested favourites that tick all the boxes. And the best bit is, they're all under €15, so there's no need to feel guilty if you decide to give them a whirl!
- L'Oreal True Match €14.99
Available in an impressive 21 shades (including pink and yellow tones), L'Oreal True Match is the type of high street hero we can get on board with. It lasts well throughout the day making it a good choice for those who have combination or oily skin, as well as for anyone who worries about their base wearing off. The coverage is medium but can be built up if needed, which is always a plus if you have any slight discolouration around the nose or cheek areas.
- Bourjois Healthy Mix €12.95
In case you haven't heard, Bourjois have recently revamped their Healthy Mix Foundation formula and it's better than ever. Actually, it's better than a lot of luxury offerings if we're being perfectly honest! If you're looking for a good all rounder foundation then this definitely worth a try. We love the smooth application, the gentle glow it gives to skin as well as the lasting power.
- Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid €11.99
Oil-free and offering the potential to be anything from medium to full coverage, Maybelline's cult classic Dream Satin Liquid foundation is another one available in a large variety of shades (22 to be exact!). We love how this smoothes over pores to create a flawless finish and lasts for hours and hours.
