This Hardworking Foundation Does Not Budge All Day
Huda Beauty's #FauxFilter Foundation, €40, does not budge. The long-wearing, full-coverage, velvety foundation will take you from morning to night and beyond. With a matte finish, it creates the perfect flawless canvas for all your eye and lip looks.
With 30 shades to choose from, you're guaranteed to find a shade that works for you. “I always struggled to find the right foundation myself, so I would always mix them to get the right shade," says Huda. "I have an olive complexion with a very golden undertone – there’s so much more to your skin tone than meets the eye! – so I made sure to take into account the skin tone and undertone when I was creating the shades."
Enriched with skin-nourishing argan oil, this foundation makes light work of concealing blemishes, hiding redness and camouflaging dark circles, so an uneven complexion doesn't stand a chance. You can use a flat-topped brush like the Huda Beauty Buff & Blend Brush, €24 or a sponge, like Huda Beauty's Basic B Sponge, €16.

But what if you sometimes want a glowy complexion or something a little sheerer? Well, Magda has a clever trick for you. "Skin prep is key! I like to add a couple of drops of Josh Rosebrook Herbal Infusion Oil, €39, to the LixirSkin Univeral Emulsion, €34 and massage it into the skin. It's the ideal makeup prep for skin that is dry or dehydrated or you love that dewy foundation effect," she says. "This skincare step helps the foundation look a little less heavy on the skin, as if you are lit from within with a glowy radiance. It looks like your skin, but better."
