Since few of us in the real world have Kerry Washington's amazingly flawless complexion, good foundation is a staple. It's something most of us use every day, so although quality, coverage, and staying power are all crucial, it should also be affordable. That's why drugstore foundations exist. But a lot of them are, well, not so great. We asked celebrity makeup artists to let us in on the rare ones that are.
Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Luminous Foundation. "It's a creamy formula that leaves your skin looking like skin, but better. The finish is dewy, radiant, and hydrated. It offers sheer to medium coverage, and it wears well. It's a good friend to have in your makeup bag." --Tamah, who works with Liv Tyler and Alexa Chung
Physicians Formula Super CC+ Color-Correction + Care Cream SPF 30. "I love that it's vegan and that it protects from the sun all day long." --Azra Red, who works with Sita Abellan and Zola Jesus
Revlon Colorstay Makeup. "The new packaging includes a pump applicator, and the long-lasting, matte formula has SPF. The formula is specifically created for combination-to-oily skin, so it absorbs and controls excess shine." --Nicole Walmsley, who works with Inbar Lavi and Jenna Elfman
L'Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup. "The blendability is amazing, and the range of colors is pretty impressive. I also like the fact that this foundation is oil-free, which makes it perfect for sensitive or troublesome skin. Using it with a damp sponge helps get a beautiful sheer finish with great coverage." --Robert Greene, who works with Ashley Olsen and Tinashe
Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation. "I love dewy skin, and this foundation has a perfect texture for it. It has a good amount of coverage, but it looks really natural and light. I like to apply it with my hands. I work it on the skin like I apply cream, and then I dab more with my fingers to build coverage." --Morgane Martini, who works with Adriana Lima and Gigi Hadid
