Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation

"My go-to foundation is the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation. Aside from its wide array of shades to choose from to perfectly match your skin tone, it has an amazing medium to full coverage that lasts all day. It looks great on photos and the skin appears smooth without looking thick or patchy. It's easy to blend, and I personally like to use a Beautyblender [sponge] to push the product into the skin that creates an airbrushed look." – Jem Tinsay, 29

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation

"I have never been a foundation girl since I consider myself more of a skincare gal. I’ve searched far and wide for the right brand, formulation, and finish. I find that my number one complaint is coverage that feels too thick and heavy! Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation amazed me and has done me wonders. The hydrating benefits for dry skin are true! It’s very lightweight yet delivers medium coverage. What I love the most is that it’s oil-free and long-lasting. It never gets my pores clogged. Plus, it has broad-spectrum SPF 25." – Sammie Jo Lao, 27

MAC Studio Fix Liquid Foundation

"MAC Studio Fix Liquid Foundation is the best match for me. I have combination skin with some blemishes, so it's a challenge to look flawless sometimes. However, since I discovered MAC Studio Fix, I find that the formula blends evenly on my skin, and the shade is perfect with my skin color. Its medium to full coverage conceals some of my sunspots, and it stays incredibly long even after long-haul flights!: – Steph Yu Chua, 30
