We love our BB (Blemish Balm) creams, CC (Colour Correcting) creams, and tinted moisturisers as much as the next girl, but sometimes you just want a little extra somethin’ somethin’ that’s just going to cover it all up, you know what we’re saying?

And look, we don’t feel like we’re asking too much when we want something that provides a little extra coverage, but still feels weightless and non-existent on the skin. Also, massive bonus points if it does something extra, like contains a skincare benefit, because it’s not new news that we’re suckers for a 2-in-1 .

So you can imagine our excitement when serum foundation’s started arriving on the scene. With all the pro’s of a traditional foundation, plus insane skincare benefits (many containing nourishing oils that are extra hydrating, balancing or anti-ageing – ping!), we were intrigued. And got busy testing.

So, we’ve rounded up the best foundation’s by skin type, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to find your perfect match.
