From Morphe 2 and L’Oreal to Lottie London and NYX, there’s a wide range of high quality foundations at low price points.
When it comes to building a beauty kit, foundations are key for many. However, like many other beauty products, there’s a misconception that higher quality comes with a higher price point.
Of course, this isn’t the case at all. The high street is filled with numerous affordable foundations that don’t require spending a large amount of money. In fact, a lot of these inexpensive options are firm favourites of the Stylist beauty team.
Here’s our pick of the best foundations under £20 – proving a good base needn’t cost a lot.
