The internet has spoken! 

The hunt to find the perfect foundation is like no other as there's a lot to look for. You need it to match your skin tone, it has to work for your skin, you want it to give your desired coverage, it must have complimentary undertones and ideally, it won't oxidize


Even if you do find the perfect foundation, you'll always be tempted to try new ones because the beauty world is constantly coming up with new innovative products that quite frankly, would be rude not to try.

With a whopping 69% of the votesToo Faced's Born This Way Foundation was voted the best foundation of 2018, beating Estee Lauder's Double Wear.

Born This Way Liquid Foundation, €35, Too Faced @ Debenhams

The foundation is oil-free and has a medium-to-full coverage that's "undetectable". It's infused with coconut water which helps to delicately replenish the skin's moisture levels without over hydrating. The product also contains Alpine Rose to brighten the skin's appearance as well as containing Hyaluronic Acid which not only makes the foundation long-lasting but also creates a smoother, more youthful appearance. Oh, it's also cruelty-free AND suitable for vegans. What's not to love?

The foundation was originally praised for having a shade range of 35 but the praise didn't stop there. When beauty lovers finally got their hands on the product, it was instant love so it really comes as no surprise that it was voted Instagram's favourite foundation of 2018. 

Now, if you'll excuse us. We have some make-up shopping to do!
