You may remember a TV ad in which two (obviously genius) women ask a genie to grant them one heck of a wish—a never-ending supply of Tim Tams. I bring it up because, as much as I would *love* limitless chocolate biscuits, I want perfect skin even more. (And that's saying something.) I'm talking about owning a complexion so flawless, it's akin to walking around with a real life Snapchat filter on at all times. You might call that a big ask, but with so many top-notch foundation formulas on shelf, it's more do-able than you think.
Whatever finish you're after—matte, dewy, satin, sheer—there's a skin-perfecting base for you. Even better, it doesn't have to cost you a zillion dollars. (Or a chance at 200+ packets of Double Coat, $4.)
