20 foundation favorites
Foundationphile to the core.

Almost eleven years ago, I started Beauty Professor with an insatiable passion for foundation. Nearly a decade later, that fire still burns bright and today, I am sharing my top 20 favorite foundations, ranging from a sheer, glowing veil of color to creamy full coverage.

Bottom Line: I hope you found this foundation deep dive helpful and interesting and would love to know which formulas caught your eye…do tell.

Good things ahead, including new spring launches, a hair intensive and my recommendations for the Beautylish Gift Card Event. Can’t wait to share.

Stay strong, seek wisdom, much love and more soon,


–The Beauty Professor
