I have often found that foundations can be expensive, especially once you combine them with brushes & applicators. I find that using a foundation that costs under £10 for during the day is the best way to save money. By using a cheaper foundation through out the week & during the day you can save your expensive brands for the evening, making them last longer. Foundations provide the base for all of your looks, whether they be glam for the night or basic for daytime or natural for working hours. Along with mascara foundation is one of the products I will not leave the house without applying. It was therefore necessary for me to find cheaper alternatives to the foundations I had been accustom as daily use leads to them running out all the sooner. MAC Studio Fix and Benefit Hello Flawless are not considered expensive foundations in the world of makeup. But for some one on a tight budget who likes to indulge in makeup replacing them can be quite a costly thing. I therefore save my more expensive foundations for evenings/nights out. During the day/for work I find that a foundation that has cost under £10 is best, as when they run out they are easily replaceable and do not break the bank. Some of the best day time foundations I have found are the Naturally Matte Collection 2000 foundation in ivory which is a perfect match for my skin tone is under £5 and brilliant for days when you need slight coverage but don't need to waste your good foundation. The best foundation I have ever used, is the Maybelline Matte Mouse foundation which is about £8. I use this foundation daily instead of using my more expensive brands, and in all honesty I rate it more highly. It never wears off my face, and I have it in a number our shades to match my skin through out tans. If I am wearing this foundation during the evening I pair it with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium. As well as the Give Me Sun MAC skinfinish. It's perfect for that going out/evening base. There are also numerous foundations my maybelline/loreal/rimmel for under £10 that are brilliant for during the day, whether your preference be powder/liquid/mousse. By purchasing a cheaper foundation you prolong the life of your more expensive brands and it helps create a distinction between your glam looks and your day times looks.
