Over the years, the beauty world has seen a number of makeup looks that encouraged men and women to embrace themselves more. The past few years were no different; with the rise of 'Au Naturale' look, people are more drawn to healthy-looking lashes, glossy lips, and glowing face. In this article, Tatler has listed some of the most effective natural-looking foundations

Most beauty gurus would agree that the main purpose of foundation is to even out one's skin tone. This makeup, which often comes in the form of liquid, cream, or powder, has the power to cover 'flaws,' and function as a moisturizer, sunscreen, or base layer.

With the popularity of the Au Naturale or no-makeup-makeup look, people have been more careful in choosing the right foundation. The base makeup has to be lightweight, 'non-cakey,' and has the power to provide a more natural look.

Listed below are Tatler-approved foundations to help achieve a natural-looking glam look:

1. Dior Backstage Face & Body Makeup

Lightweight and long-lasting, the Dior Backstage Face & Body Makeup is a foundation worth every beauty enthusiast's attention. It has a seamless finish that users can layer nicely over thick moisturisers. It is also an ideal natural foundation for every season, especially in summer and winter. 

Tatler Trivia: The Dior Backstage Face & Body Makeup is the same foundation that Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wore on her wedding day.

2. Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation

The Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation's selling point is probably its blurring effect on the skin. From the moment of application, users can immediately see that their pores and fine lines are blanketed by the liquid makeup. It also feels lightweight, as if there's nothing on your skin.
