“I am someone with sensitive skin. Therefore, when it comes to a foundation, I only trust one brand, and that is Clinique. I am currently using Clinique’s Superbalanced Foundation in the colour beige-chiffon. It has a oil-free coverage without making my skin super dry. It’s silky upon application and gives the skin a nice dewy glow which looks equally good during day and night functions. - Apoorva Poonia, Trending Writer.

“When anyone asks me about my skin type, I’m blank. It’s because it’s so patchy. While I might start the night with a smooth look, within the first hour of being at a wedding function I’m already itching to slip out for a touch-up. That’s why I decided to get a professional to help out for my best friend’s wedding. I usually use a MAC primer and Studio Finish Foundation. But Sakshi Malik (she’s brilliant BTW) used the LA Girl Corrector first, followed by the NARS Sheer Glow foundation. I was super impressed by how long the foundation stayed put. I’m picking up those two products the next time I go shopping!” - Nitya Uppal, Assistant Editor

“I’m not even remotely a make-up person. The concept of foundation has always illuded me for the simple reason that it feels and looks flakey. But the One IlluSkin Foundation by Oriflame is the reason why I stopped judging make-up by their packaging and my preconceived notions. It’s rich and creamy texture feels like second skin on your face while keeping it moisturized for hours. It gives you a natural glow even, without looking flakey, or powdery after long hours of stay. I blindly suggest this foundation to anyone who wants something that isn’t too pricey; but, is also just as reliable - for outward appearance, as well as inward nourishment - Dessidre Fleming, Lifestyle Editor

“For someone who has struggled with oily skin and acne right up till her adulthood (*sigh*), putting on foundation can be a risky gamble at best! My initial run ins with foundations led to cakey looking coverage and a shiny forehead, ‘matte and glow’ had become a distant dream. But all that changed for the better when I stumbled upon the cult brand Faces. I tried their Ultime Pro Second Skin Foundation which was amazing. It was also mineral based and value for money, good enough for me to be hooked on to the brand! It’s lightweight flawless finish sat well on my oily skin and gave me that youthful, dewy glow we all crave for at fancy wedding dos!” - Sumona Bose, Fashion Writer

“I have been blessed with naturally clear skin, but for some reason it’s a pain to find a foundation that really goes with my skintone. I am fair but with a yellowish undertone to my skin, so most foundations are either too dark or too pink for me. But after going through bottles and bottles of various foundations (and spending thousands of rupees on them!), I finally came across my perfect match - L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation in the shade N2 - Honey. It works like magic on my skin, gives me perfect coverage and gives my skin that flawless glow. Totally in love with this one!” - Manvi Malhotra, Senior Wedding Writer.

“Honestly, I am not huge on the foundation bandwagon, I usually use a tinted moisturiser or BB cream and move it along. But then cushion foundations happened to me, and I am hooked! This L'Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation covers your blemishes but is sheer enough to give you a luminous and fresh glow. I like that it is extremely hydrating and that it is buildable. So just one swipe won't make you look made up, but will give you an even skin tone. The applicator is another plus, it makes blending supremely easy, especially for a lazy person like me.” - Kannagi Desai, Junior Beauty Editor

“I am not much into beauty products to be quite honest. I keep my skin far away from all the chemicals possible, from foundations, concealers and the likes. But I accept, you do need one when you are heading for a function or wedding or a party. After trying all the possible foundations available in the market, I kind of swear by the one and only M.A.C Studio Fix Foundation. It seals the little bit of pigmentation I have on my face, leaving my skin look more even toned and flawless till the time I wash it off” - Anannya Chatterjee, Senior Wedding Writer.
