Foundation is one of the most versatile cosmetics items. Its primary function is to even out the skin tone. Many brands infuse their makeup with skin-enhancing vitamins and minerals to improve your complexion. The product can also do double duty as an eyeshadow primer, highlighter, and bronzer.

Finding the perfect makeup for your skin type and tone may require some trial and error. Many people combine shades to match their skin tone or contour their face. Take advantage of these deals on foundation so that you can snag a beauty product that won’t break the bank.

beautyblender Bounce + Nude Kit

Beautyblender refers to foundation as “the Spanx of makeup.” It supports your skin, but you don’t want it to be obvious.

The company is known for its bouncy sponge, which can be used wet or dry to seamlessly blend your cosmetics. Its Bounce Liquid Whip Foundation comes in more than 30 shades, and the packaging incorporates a pump that squirts out the perfect amount of product.

This foundation provides medium to full coverage. The manufacturer claims that it lasts all day, but some users say that it wipes off and transfers onto clothes. Plus, it washes off easily.

It’s best for normal to oily skin. Because the finish is so matte, the product can look flaky and powdery on dry skin.

The beautyblender Bounce Foundation alone normally costs $40. From November 21 to 26, you can buy the Bounce + Nude Blender Kit, which contains foundation and a beautyblender, for $50 on the company’s website, according to Refinery29.

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation won Refinery29’s Beauty Innovator Award in 2018. Unlike many long-wearing foundations, this one seems to illuminate your skin from within. The creamy formula hides shine but remains dewy throughout the day.

This foundation provides medium coverage. As such, it is supposed to last for 16 hours, but it may slide off if your skin is extremely oily — this is not a waterproof foundation. It’s best for normal to dry skin since this product doesn’t seem to oxidize to an orange tone or cling to dry patches.

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation usually costs $49. From November 22 to 27, you can get it, along with every product at, for 20 percent off.

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Perfector Blurring Skin Tint

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Perfector is an extremely light, sheer tint. It provides more coverage than a tinted moisturizer but less than most long-wearing foundations. Therefore, it’s perfect for going out in the summer, hitting the gym, and relaxing on weekends.

The formula also keeps your skin hydrated, so you can skip the moisturizer if you don’t have a dry complexion. With SPF 25, this tint is ideal for working into your everyday routine. Plus, this product, which offers minimal coverage, is ideal for those who are just getting used to wearing foundation and don’t need a lot of correction.

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Perfector usually costs $36. According to Elite Daily, it will be part of Make Up Forever’s Black Friday sale. From November 22 to 27, you’ll get 20 percent off your entire purchase online or in-store when you spend $100.

Tarte Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation

If you’re not a fan of liquid foundations, you might want to try Tarte Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation. Apply it with a wet brush or sponge to blend it in its liquid form. It will dry to a matte finish. Use it dry for coverage that’s thicker than a powder can deliver but gives you flawless results.

It’s easy to layer multiple applications to build up coverage. Using this technique prevents you from applying too much foundation at once and makes this product versatile for everyday use or heavy makeup applications. You can even use it over other foundations to make them last longer.

This foundation is great for any skin type. It could become cakey in oily areas, but it doesn’t tend to linger on fine hairs and flakes the way other powders do.

The regular price of Tarte Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation is $35, but the compact is currently priced at $23 in the sale section at Once you’re on the website, you’ll see popup ads offering additional discounts.

This product is ideal for combination skin. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which helps retain moisture. Therefore, you can use it if you have dry skin too.
