Be it redness on your cheeks or color correction, using a foundation that suits you and your skin’s needs is imperative when buying one. Here are our Top 5 Affordable Foundations Under Rs 1000.
How to choose a foundation: Be sure you try out a swipe of foundation on your wrist to make sure it matches your skintone. A lot of experts also suggest swiping it on your neck to find the perfect match.
Coming back to the point, here are our Top 5 Affordable Foundations For Flawless Skin Under $15. These come in varying formulas that suit every budget and most skin types:
L’Oréal Paris 24H Infallible Foundation, Rs 924: The texture of it may be liquid but the formula leaves a smooth matte finish—a boon for summers in India! This foundation is ideal for most skin types unless you have sensitive skin.
How to use: Use a primer (you can even try L’Oré al Paris Base Magique Primer) to set a good base for an evening look. Once you’re done with that, use a foundation brush/kabuki brush to blend the foundation really well onto your face and neck.
Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation, Rs 518: A mousse based foundation is always lighter on the skin. This latest launch from Lakmé is perfect for daywear and office wear since it lends natural coverage. We recommend it for normal and oily skin types.
How to use: Use your day cream followed by any treatment cream for under eyes or orange concealer under your eyes. Dab this foundation with clean fingers and go au natural this season.
Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation, Rs 420: If you prefer water based foundations to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, then this maybe a good fit for you. It also claims to be oil-free and would suit those of us with oily skin or those of us prone to breakouts.
How to use: Use a flat foundation brush and apply it on your face and neck. Seal with pressed powder for a dewy finish.
ZA Perfect True White Plus Liquid Foundation, Rs 950: If you want full coverage all through the day along with SPF coverage, then this bottle is for you. Not only it doesn’t minimize the appearance of pores but also corrects skin with consistent usage (it has Vitamin C and E). This foundation suits normal to dry skin.
How to use: If you have a party to go to or a long night out, it’s a good choice. Don’t skip contouring and highlighting after using it!
Inglot Cream Foundation, Rs 900: Like the name suggests, this one is a cream based foundation that keeps your skin smooth and is ideal for dry and normal skin types. The best part is that its paraben-free and cannot cause any allergies—an issue for those with sensitive skin.
How to use: Dab on clean face with a clean sponge or Inglot’s Foundation Brush. Make sure you pick the shade closest to your skintone.
