My Winter Foundation Collection

I realize I've been on quite the foundation kick as of late, but when you're a makeup junkie like me and have tried almost every foundation under the sun, I want to share the best of the best. My foundation drawer is divided into two sections: one for winter and one for summer. I'll share my favorite summer foundations at an appropriate time, but those foundations are mattifying and budge-proof—not at all what I need in the cold months when my skin can act a little dry at times.

BAREMINERALS COMPLEXION RESCUE GEL CREAM

This is like a tinted moisturizer on steroids. If you're looking for the fastest way to do your makeup in the mornings, this is the way to go.

LANCOME TEINT IDOLE ULTRA 24H LONG WEAR FOUNDATION

The most expensive out of all my winter foundations, this is without a doubt the most flawless and long-lasting. The shade ranger in this line is incredible, too.

RIMMEL LONDON LASTING FINISH 25HR BREATHABLE FOUNDATION

Yep, I've already raved about this foundation this year, but it is seriously that good of a foundation. It looks even better throughout the day!

As I was rounding up my winter foundation collection, I was struck by how budget-friendly most of them are! The drugstore has been killing it with fantastic, high-quality formulas, especially for those of us who are looking to add a little life back to our face when the temps are in the negatives and the snow is blowing relentlessly.

THE ORDINARY SERUM FOUNDATION

All the British beauty gurus were raving about this foundation, so when it came to the U.S., I had to give it a try. It's without a doubt the most natural finish of all my winter foundations.

L'OREAL INFALLIBLE PRO-GLOW FOUNDATION

This is the dewiest, glowiest of all my foundations, so if you have extremely dry skin, this one needs to be in your next Target cart. My one complaint about this line: the lightest shade is way too dark for us with very fair skin.

NYX TOTAL CONTROL DROP FOUNDATION

This is the most versatile foundation, as it can be worn and layered alone beautifully, but it can also be added to other foundations to change their shades.
