5 Beginner Friendly Foundations To Try


If you’re just starting to wear makeup, then you might be a little overwhelmed! Where do you start? Foundation is a good place to start out because it’s the base of your makeup! So here are 5 beginner friendly foundations to try depending on your skin type and preference.

Best Drugstore Foundation: Revlon ColorStay
Revlon ColorStay 24 Hour Foundation

Revlon Colorstay

This is pretty much my number one choice for someone starting out who needs a full coverage foundation. For the price, I don’t think it gets much better than this. My only huge complaint with this one is the lack of a pump (for ease of getting the product out), but that seems to be typical of a lot of drugstore foundations.

One of the best things about this foundation for beginners is that they make getting the right foundation for your skin type easy! With two different formulas (normal/dry and combination/oily), all you have to do is select the foundation for your skin type.

Oh! And they have a ton of shades! If you’re having trouble deciding, ask someone else or put the bottle up to your neck or arms. You want the color to match the color of the your body, not just your face.

Rimmel Stay Matte (Beginner Friendly Foundation)

Rimmel’s Stay Matte Foundation

You want to stay away from this one if you have dry skin, but if you have combination or oily skin, this is a great choice for you. It doesn’t have a lot of shade choices, but it’s an easy foundation to use. I always apply it with my fingers, and often, I don’t even have to use setting powder. Plus, I really like the matte look.

Foundations For Beginners To Try: Maybelline Fit Me!

This is another one you can’t go wrong with. And did I mention that its only $5?! Yep. For the quality of coverage and longevity, this is another great choice for someone starting out.

Again, you’re not going to get a pump on this one, and it’s pretty liquidy, so be careful! As such, it’s a good choice for someone with dry skin. I love this foundation! And it comes in matte. What’s not to love?

A Beginner Friendly Foundation - Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser


This foundation comes with an applicator, which makes it ideal for the person that’s on the go and doesn’t want to fuss with makeup covered fingers or brushes. It’s not as full coverage as the other foundations, but it’s great if you’re just looking to even out your skin and get that base layer of your makeup.

One of the best things about this foundation is also one of the worst. Since this one has a built in applicator, it’s a perfect place for bacteria to grow. So I would recommend this as an everyday foundation. It should definitely be thrown after 6 months.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation - Beginner Friendly

Rimmel Lasting Finish

This foundation reminds me a little of a lotion. It’s pretty full coverage, and it comes in a squeeze out tube. Very easy to use. Just apply with your fingers!

Its pretty liquidy, so you’ll definitely want a setting powder on this one. But it’s great for people with dry skin! And it’s cheap 🙂
