Getting your foundation just right is imperative when presenting a flawless visage. Check out our favorite foundations this season! 

The cosmetics world is constantly evolving and our thirst for flawless skin is ever quenching. There are tens of thousands of foundations to choose from, giving us retail anxiety in lieu of retail therapy. With more shade ranges than ever, luckily, we can finally pick foundations based on properties other than colour matching. This past year, cosmetic companies have launched some standout foundations that are sure to satisfy all skin needs and types. We’ve rounded up the five hottest foundations this season.
