We’ve all been told that foundation should look like skin. This, of course, means skin in the best possible version of itself: poreless, even-toned and free of blemishes. These latest foundations got the memo. Urban Decay All Nighter has three times as much pigment as the brand’s Naked Skin line for total coverage. Smashbox tested its new range in a photo studio to ensure that it holds up under any type of lighting. Skincare ingredients are found in both Almay Age Essentials (collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides) and Vichy Teint Idéal (vitamin C). L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow stays put for up to 24 hours, and the hydrophobic pigments in Chanel Teint Ultra Tenue keep it in place even in extreme humidity. Then there are the shade ranges: Urban Decay, Smashbox and Chanel boast 24, 22 and 16 shades respectively. Get glowing.
