Fortunately, there’s no shortage of new foundation options to try and we’ve picked the best new launches that are worthy of your valuable makeup-bag real estate.
Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation
Laura Mercier is a perennial complexion favorite (who hasn’t tried the tinted moisturizer?) and spring 2019 brings us a brand-new foundation that’s sure to please. Available in 30 shades, this long-wear formula is designed to provide up to 15 hours of weightless medium to full coverage with a luminous, light-reflecting finish. Even more, you get skincare ingredients like Silver Ear mushroom extract and vitamin C for improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and skin brightness over time.
Il Makiage Woke Up Like This Flawless Base Foundation
The hardest part about shopping for foundation is finding the perfect color match, but Il Makiage eliminates this problem thanks to an online quiz that is guaranteed to direct you to the ideal shade that blends seamlessly with your natural skin tone. Just answer a few questions about your skin type and tone, desired coverage and finish, tanning tendencies and even whether gold or silver suits you better (plus a few others)—and voila, one of 50 options is recommended for you.
Tom Ford Glow Tone Up Foundation SPF 45 Hydrating Cushion Compact
All the other cushion compacts better watch their backs, because the king of luxury, Tom Ford, just unveiled a version of his own. This sheer (yet buildable), lightweight, moisture-packed formula gives you even tone, come-hither radiance and instant blurring of fine lines and other imperfections—along with SPF 45 and a cooling sensation on contact. Available in three flesh-toned shades and three glow-enhancing shades that can be used alone, as primer or as a finishing highlighting touch for extra luminosity, you get the skin you envision having on holiday in Capri without the need for a passport.
Smith & Cult Veiled Threat Weightless Micro-Blurring Foundation
The first foundation offering from Smith + Cult, this medium-coverage, transfer-resistant mousse-to-cream leaves your skin with a velvety-soft finish and soft-focus effect that last for up to 12 hours. The addition of hydrating aloe vera and skin-brightening chlorophyll make this vegan, gluten-free base even better and with 42 available shades, there’s complexion-perfection for everyone!
It Cosmetics Confidence in a Foundation
It Cosmetics is all about helping you love the skin you’re in, and their latest launch may be the foundation you’ve been longing for. The oil-free, long-wearing, matte-finish, ceramide-infused formula is designed to stand up to summer humidity while rendering imperfections invisible, and 48 available shades means a flawless face is most most definitely within reach.
