The 5 Best Liquid Foundations of 2022

An essential element of any makeup look is the foundation. Foundation serves as a baseline for makeup pros and amateurs alike to create their own art by providing an even canvas for all of the other components of a look—concealer, contour, blush, brows, and so on—to shine. Consider foundation to be the quarterback of your cosmetic bag; you can probably get by without it (try a tinted moisturizer or BB cream instead), but everything goes (err, blends) a lot better when foundation is added to the mix.

Ask ELLE editors what their top foundation picks are. They’ll spend a lifetime explaining why they prefer skin tints over full-coverage formulas, which base blurs their most stubborn skin concerns, or which formula provides the best long-lasting coverage for jam-packed vacations. Simply put: ELLE editors keep the foundation market running; “no-makeup” makeup trends be damned.

However, we know you are busy and don’t have time to go on an endless hunt for the best foundations on the market, so we narrowed it down to 18. Whether you want a filter-like finish or a no-blemishes-left-behind full coverage option, shop ELLE’s favorite foundations below. Thank us later.
