A Beginner’s Guide to Shortlisting the Best Foundation Cream Online

When it comes to makeup, the only thing that comes to mind is a flawless base. So, apart from eyeliner, lipstick, or lip balm, the foundation makes an essential inclusion in makeup. It is a go-to thing for all makeup enthusiasts and for a good reason too. First, it helps create an even base for the other makeup products to be layered after. Second, it gives you a spot-free complexion. So using a paraben-free foundation cream acts as the groundwork for your entire makeup. Choosing the right one can help blur blemishes, enhance skin tone, cover imperfections, and give an overall smooth finish, while the wrong one can result in cakey or greasy makeup.

Using foundation is one of the oldest ways to lighten skin complexion that has been used by men and women since ancient times. Ancient Greek women used chalk or lead-based formula as a foundation to brighten their skin tone and kohl to line the eyes. But with the recent innovations in the skincare industry, foundations, and kohls have forayed into the traditional ways of enhancing appearance. Nowadays, different types of foundation for men and women are available on the market with preferred consistency, the coverage you desire, and the finish you look forward to. So when choosing a toxic-free foundation makeup, there is no one-size-fits-all.

Every makeup product has its advantages, just like the face foundation shades that vary according to skin type. Once you know your requirements, you will know exactly what you want. The types of foundation makeup are quite different too. For example, the recent trend is towards opting for water-based and oil free foundations. These are crafted as per your skin’s type and texture. For example, you may note that an oily skin foundation will be far less concentrated than a dry skin foundation and should thus suit only acne-prone skin more.  

6 Benefits of Wearing a Paraben-Free Cosmetic Foundation

A chemical-free cosmetic foundation does much more than create an even base for applying makeup. This is why you should always opt for the best foundation for daily use that you can buy online. It would also help you with the following aspects of your skincare regimen:
 
1. Blurs open pores

Enlarged pores often affect the appearance of your skin. They act weird when they are clogged with dust, grime, and dead skin cells, because they may pop out as zits and leave acne marks. Although using a toxin-free face wash could help eliminate these impurities, enlarged pores usually don’t go away so easily. 

This is where buying a chemical-free makeup foundation comes in handy. It is the easiest way to minimize the appearance of skin pores. Mamaearth’s foundation face cream works wonders as it spreads evenly on the face and nourishes the skin pores with natural goodness and care. 

2. Lets your makeup stay longer
Beauty experts recommend wearing a waterproof foundation to create an even base that lasts long and does not wear off with sweat. Many good-quality makeup products come with a hydrating formula that stays on the skin for up to 12 hours. Wearing foundation with primer increases the stay time of makeup. 

Many of us also use a foundation with powder because we believe it would help make the base last longer than usual. It isn’t what should be done, as it adds layers to your face and gives it a cakey texture. This is where opting for the best foundation cream comes to your rescue. Mamaearth’s foundation has a lightweight texture that spreads easily on the face without causing any dryness. It forms the perfect base for any look you want to recreate. 

3. Anti-aging properties
Most formulations are packed with ingredients that have anti-aging properties. This helps reduce the damage caused by the free radicals on the skin and slows down the aging process. Using a toxin-free powder foundation may also help conceal such skincare issues. 

Mamaearth comes with a diverse range of shades in foundations to suit every skin type and tone. They have nourishing properties that keep your skin bright, radiant, and youthful. 

So, if you have been searching for the ‘best foundation dry skin India’ or any other skin type, this one should be your pick!

4. Creates a protective layer against sun damage
Cream foundations are enriched with SPF to create a protective barrier against harsh sun rays. However, it does not mean you should skip applying sunscreen body lotion altogether. So, wear SPF before you begin applying any makeup or any part of foundation cosmetics. 


5. Preps oily skin for makeup
Oily skin can be hard to deal with, especially when it comes to ensuring that your makeup is applied well and lasts long throughout the day. The best foundation for oily skin should be applied in thin and sheer layers. You can use a makeup sponge in gentle blotting motions to buff it into your skin rather than wiping it. 

Mamaearth is among the best foundation brands and is known for formulating amazing cosmetics with natural ingredients. It has a cream foundation for oily skin and other skin types that protects the skin’s texture from the external environment. 

6. Hydrates dry skin
Our face foundation creams are saturated with naturally nourishing and moisturizing ingredients that let the skin stay hydrated for up to 12 hours, just like a face mask. They enhance the skin's natural radiance and provide a blemish-free appearance. 

Most foundations come in a serum cream texture, they are neither too watery nor too solid to clog the skin pores. If you are looking for the best foundation in India with price, we recommend you try Mamaearth’s foundation range today.

7. Does not create a cakey or greasy look


It is best to go with a matte foundation that does not feel heavy on the skin. It hides fine lines and wrinkles without settling into them. This helps keep inflammation and allergies away. It is also safe for regular use because this product does not leave a white foundation mark on the skin.

Types of Foundations

Here are some of the most popular types of foundations you may explore online: 

1. Liquid Foundation
The liquid foundation provides the most coverage and is used if there are larger patches of skin discoloration or marks or even enlarged pores. It is the best foundation for normal skin, dry, oily, and combination skin. You can use a foundation sponge, brushes, and even your fingers to apply it evenly to your skin. 

2. Powder Foundation
They make the best option for oily skin because they are talc-based and help soak up excess oil from the skin. Foundation powder is easy to apply and comes in a compact case, so you can carry it for frequent touch-ups. It ensures light (sheer) to medium coverage. However, it should not be used on dry skin or to hide fine lines because it tends to cake a lot.

3. Cream Foundations
Best suited for the dry skin type, cream-based foundation types last longer than 10 hours without caking. They provide medium coverage and blur blemishes and fine lines very nicely. Therefore, they are ideal for mature skin. However, if you have too dry skin, you should use a face primer or a moisturizer before applying foundation on face. In this case, it is not advisable to use a cream foundation.

4. Serum foundation
Serum foundations are the newest in the beauty world that are highly concentrated formulations crafted to sink into the skin quickly like a face serum. It is ideal for women with oily skin. Serum foundations give the lightness of moisturizer and coverage of a foundation, making the best foundation for dusky skin. As they are water based foundations, they are super easy to apply. You can use a flat foundation brush to distribute them to your face evenly. 

4. Stick Foundation
Most toxic-free stick foundations are an easy and non-messy option to work with. They have a smooth and creamy texture, making them an easy-to-dab makeup solution. Plus, they allow you the flexibility to build coverage as per your needs. 

Tip: You should check the stick foundation price online before you buy it from any offline store.
 
6. Mousse Foundation
Also called whipped foundations, this lightweight product contains microbubbles which is why it is suitable for all skin types. What makes it different from other formulations is that it does not settle into lines and accentuate them. However, they don’t last long because India has a humid climate that wears them off. It also worsens in the rainy season when the humidity is much higher.

Caution: Avoid poor quality skin care products (often advertised as ‘foundation under 100’). While they may help you save some money, they could hurt your skin badly.
