11 New Foundations, Concealers, and Primers for Fresh, Dewy Skin

Perhaps you prefer a minimalist makeup routine. Or maybe you have a go-to five-step look. There’s a chance you can contour with your eyes closed, or that you’re still not sure where you’re supposed to put highlighter. No matter your makeup M.O., finding the right base products is the, um, foundation, for putting your best face forward.

That’s why, for this year’s SELF Healthy Beauty Awards, we were super picky about choosing the best foundations, concealers, and primers from the hundreds of submissions we received. Our rigorous selection process started with holding each product up to a set of standards based on criteria from board-certified dermatologists. Then we enlisted dozens of testers with a variety of skin types, tones, and concerns to vet and review the products that made the cut. The results: We ended up with 11 face-base winners that got glowing reviews all around.

Whether you’re looking to minimize under-eye circles, even out your complexion, conceal dark spots, prime your skin for makeup application, or achieve a fresh-from-a facial glow, these best-of-the-best base products have you covered (*wink*).
