The best foundation that has a light/natural finish?

Hey Everybody,

I am looking for a light weight, non-cakey, natural-looking, but still provides full coverage foundation. Also it needs to be affordable (i am talking about under $25 affordable). Can anybody help?

This is by Cargo, its simply called "liquid foundation"

An oil-free ultra hydrating silky finish foundation by CARGO that offers the versatility of a sheer natural finish or a full coverage. The truly unique and innovative pouch packaging makes it easy to use, hygienic and highly portable! Just put it with a damp sponge and the coverage will be perfect.

If you're looking for a foundation under $25 at Sephora, your options are very limited.


I was only able to find these options- hopefully someone who has tried some of these can give some better information.  That said, I've been pleasantly surprised by the quality of Sephora Collection products lately, and Clinique is a great go-to.


Sephora Collection 10-hour wear Perfection Foundation, $20


Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup, $23


Clinique Superbalanced Makeup, $23


Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup, $25


If you're willing to stretch your budget a bit (by $10), you get a couple more options, including the #1 recommended long-wearing foundation.


Clinique Even Better Makeup, $27


And the #1 consensus favorite for long-wearing, full coverage foundation:


Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation, $34


I'm going to be honest- if you can afford to stretch the budget, think about doing so. Foundation is just that- the foundation of your entire look and finding the perfect one is the best thing you can do for yourself on a daily basis in terms of your look (aside from your skincare).

Hi pinkswag97,


I'm assuming you'd like a liquid makeup? Natural- full coverage foundations are a bit hard to find but there are some nice ones that don't feel or look TOO heavy on the skin. As far as being under $25, you may want to look at our Sephora Collection for the most bang for your buck!


Sephora 10 Hour Wear Perfection Foundation (has buildable coverage, is $20 USD)


SEPHORA COLLECTION - 10 HR Wear Perfection Foundation



Sephora Collection Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation (again, buildable coverage $26 USD)

SEPHORA COLLECTION - Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation



Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup (is oil free and great for combination to oily skin types, is buildable but mainly a fuller coverage on the skin $23 USD)

Clinique - Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup



Luv&Lipgloss, Diana
