Having a good foundation is important in all aspects of life, but especially important when discussing make up. I've tried a pretty wide variety of foundations. I've had my bouts with caked on coverage, I've used sheer foundations on days when I needed a pretty thick coating, I've even applied the wrong color and had those horrible lines on my neck that give me away...
Luckily over the years, through all the trial and error, I was able to develop some pretty good insight on which brands work the best and offer the most coverage without looking tacky. I also discovered that finding a foundaton that doesn't break the bank can be frustrating.
Today I'm sharing some of my designer favorites and their drugstore duplicates - the quality is almost identical yet the price is cut in half, I'm all about scoring a deal and I just have to share! While not all of the "drugstore" items are available at Walgreen's they all fall into a lower price point yet offer incredible quality! Treat yourself to new foundation, it's life changing when you find one you love and I guarantee you'll love each and every foundation on this list!
