5 Of The Best Foundations For Under €20

We've rounded up our favourite bargain-friendly bases.

Woman testing foundation

Lets be honest here; looking our best can sometimes be a costly business and once we add up the expense of all the salon visits, hair appointments and beauty buys we’re often left with barely enough money to grab a latte.

But one part of your beauty routine doesn’t have to be expensive and that’s your base. Thankfully there are a whole host of bargain-friendly foundations that are worth your spends. Here are a few of our faves…

Revlon ColorStay Makeup

Revlon ColorStay


Offering medium to full coverage, we love this foundation for its 16-hour-wear formula and its lightweight feel meaning it never looks – or feels – like you’ve piled it on. It comes in an excellent range of shades too.

Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 In 1 Foundation

Max Factor Face Finity


Three benefits in one you say? We’re sold. This little ‘un primes, conceals and offers a high coverage matte finish. We love to layer ours up with a duo fibre brush.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

Rimmel Lasting Finish


We couldn’t write a post on bargain beauty without mentioning Rimmel could we? They don’t call this foundation Lasting Finish for nothing; we’ve put it to the test and it really does stay put all day. Containing a moisturising serum it feels super lightweight on the skin and their Light Porcelain shade is great if you’re super fair too.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

Bourjois Health Mix


Giving dull skin a much needed glow, this complexion-boosting formula erases imperfections and signs of fatigue. Perfect when you’ve had a bit of a late one…

Maybelline Fit Me

Maybelline Matte And Poreless Foundation


Kim Kardashian’s a fan and so are we! We call it the free-from foundation cos it contains no oils, no waxes and it’s non-comedogenic too. We heart.
