Summer is over and with it are gone is the dewy, fresh and natural look that resonates the season. The Fall Face is still fresh and clean, but the finish is velvety, semi-matte but not overly “powdered.” Hence, the need to swap out your favorite BB Cream or tinted moisturizer for a foundation that fits your skin type and gives you the silky finish you need for fall.
Supermodel Jourdan Dunn wore the fall face well during Fall Fashion Week 2014–this is the skin to emulate.
We have tried dozens upon dozens of foundations, and we guarantee that you will “fall” for at least one of these five perfect bases.
1. 2-in-1 Foundation & Concealer
An antioxidant-rich, two-in-one foundation and concealer offering broad spectrum SPF 30 protection with medium to full, buildable coverage.
2. Oil Free Option
Try: Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder $46
A second-skin, oil-free powder foundation that can be used wet or dry.
3. “Natural” Skin
Try: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick $44
This formula is creamier and yet even more lightweight than the original and blends seamlessly into skin to create the perfect nude canvas.
4. Velvet Finish
Try: IMAN Cream to Powder Foundation $16
Full coverage foundation imparts a velvety powder finish.
5. Make it Mineral
Try: bareMinerals READY® Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 $29
A solid mineral foundation that gives long-lasting hydrating coverage without looking or feeling like a foundation.
