Between work, travel and just dealing with life in general, the last thing we have time and energy for is applying a full face of makeup when we’re already darn tired. But the revival of stick foundations has given us an easy solution to looking more alive within seconds (while also giving us extra snooze time).
Stick foundations didn’t always have the best rep – while they are the superhero of shortcut routines, many of their older variations were thick and cakey. But the foundations have gotten a huge upgrade and their new variations will make you want to get one ASAP. These versatile sticks can even out your skin tone and give you a glow in just a few minutes, especially since we’re big on the natural makeup look. Not only are they creamy, they also glide on easily, extremely lightweight and will leave a radiant finish.
You use them in many different ways – either with your fingers or with tools. They can be layered for maximum coverage or diffused for lighter coverage. For a natural look, apply it over your T-zone, under your eyes and chin. If you’re going for a contoured look, apply the foundation in a diamond shape over your face to make your features pop.
If you’re sold (just like us), here are some of the stick foundations that you need to have.
