Looking for makeup that applies fast, is mess-free, and provides flawless coverage? Allow us to turn your attention to foundation sticks, the perfect mix of convenience and portability.
Foundation sticks are ideal when you want extra coverage but don’t want to deal with the hassle of liquid or cream formulas. Housed in sleek, crayon-like packaging, these creamy sticks not only work as a base, but can also be used as concealer and contour (use one shade lighter and darker, respectively). How’s that for functionality? Plus, the application is a breeze. Simply swipe the stick directly onto your skin and blend it out with a brush or makeup sponge. Another bonus? If you’re someone who’s constantly out and about, you can easily throw one of these portable tubes in your favorite tote for no-spill on-the-go touch-ups.
