#1 Wander Beauty Wanderlust Powder Foundation, $62
This blends effortlessly for a flawless, natural-looking finish and evens out your skin without being traceable to the naked eye. We also like that it’s formulated with aloe leaf extract to moisturise skin and restore suppleness.
#2 Clinique Superpowder Double Face Makeup, $56
Swipe on this formula to recreate the lit-from-within look in an instant. It glides smoothly onto the skin and evens out your skin tone without looking fake or powdery.
Tip: For the best results, prep your skin with a good moisturiser and primer first. Apply the powder foundation with a fluffy brush or a damp makeup sponge if you prefer total coverage.
#4 It Cosmetics Celebration Illumination Foundation, $60
Not only is this highly pigmented powder foundation designed to provide shine-free coverage without settling into lines and wrinkles, it also contains SPF 20 for added protection and is packed with anti-ageing and skin-plumping ingredients such as peptides, antioxidants and hydrolyzed collagen. Bonus: It’s also infused with hyaluronic acid, rose, aloe and niacin to give you the enviable airbrushed effect while keeping your skin fresh and hydrated.
#5 Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Powder Foundation, $55
Just like all the products in the Lock-It series, this sweat-proof foundation does not smudge or budge one bit. This vegan formula comes in 26 shades to deliver the full coverage of your dreams and contains rice powder extract and kaolin to soften the appearance of imperfection and give a diffused matte finish.
#7 MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, $59
This cult classic didn’t garner fans for nothing – this plush powder takes the prize for its convenient application and staying power as it delivers an instant porcelain-like complexion with only one swipe. This versatile formula also works well as a setting powder if you want your liquid base to stay put, or just wear it alone for a sheer natural look.
#8 MAKE UP FOR EVER Matte Velvet Skin Compact, $72
This new mattifying powder foundation is high up on our beauty faves list for two reasons. One, the breathable formula helps us conceal blemishes and visible pores like a pro. Two, it’s water-resistant! The line is designed to match 30 skin tones, and each compact comes with a dual-sided sponge – a black side for photo-ready high coverage and a white side for a soft veil of powder.
