My top budget buy foundations

After I started featuring my Top 5 unsponsored series on Snapchat I’ve had hundreds of requests to do a blog post on my all time favourite budget buy foundations. I have a lot of younger followers who are looking for affordable ways to build their make up kit or women who want to try some new products without splashing unnecessary cash. I’ve included different options for every skin type, all of which are under €15, I hope this is helpful, .

  1. NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP STAY MATTE BUT NOT FLAT LIQUID FOUNDATION. Ideal for oily skin, this water-based foundation delivers full coverage with a smooth matte finish. Oil free and enriched with minerals, it glides well onto the skin and lasts all day.
  2. L’OREAL PARIS TRUE MATCH FOUNDATION. One of my holy grail affordable kit essentials. This is a super lightweight liquid foundation with skin-perfecting pigments for a flawless finish.

  3. BOURJOIS CITY RADIANCE FOUNDATION. Great for dry skin; hydrating, lightweight and breathable it also has an SPF of 30 to protect from pollution and harmful UV rays.

  4. L’ORÉAL PARIS INFALLIBLE 24HR FOUNDATION. A high coverage long-wearing liquid foundation with a formula that helps even out skin tone whilst concealing the appearance of blemishes and fatigue.

  5. EX1 COSMETICS INVISIWEAR LIQUID FOUNDATION. A new fabulous find. Luminous and lightweight, it’s formulated with ‘true colour’ pigments and light diffusers that work in harmony with your skin’s natural tone.

  6. BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION. My favourite day time skin-perfecting makeup, this is perfect for enhancing your natural complexion. The product offers a fruit therapy formula for an anti-fatigue effect with Apricot for radiance, Melon for moisture and Apple for youth.

  7. RIMMEL WAKE ME UP FOUNDATION. Super soft, comfortable and hydrating for a gorgeous glow. There’s a blend of peptides and vitamin moisturising complex that’s great for dehydration.

  8. RIMMEL MATCH PERFECTION FOUNDATION. Perfect if you prefer a creamier texture for more coverage. This foundation delivers a traceless finish that looks natural under any light and conceals imperfections for a healthy-looking finish.

  9. MAYBELLINE FIT ME! MATTE AND PORELESS FOUNDATION. Ideal for normal to oily skin types, this is infused with micro-powders to help control shine and blur pores.
