The Best Mattifying Foundations, Tinted Moisturizers, and BB Creams for a Filter-Like Finish
Becca Skin Love Weightless Foundation
Packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients like brightening vitamin C and anti-inflammatory ginger, this soft matte formula is easily buildable, allowing you to customize the amount of coverage you need with every application.
Burt's Bees Mattifying Powder Foundation
This 100 percent natural drugstore buy earns top marks for oil absorption and for on-the-fly touch-ups. Not only is it buildable and blendable, but it's also infused with bamboo to blur imperfections and leave you with a smooth, even complexion. Some fans even swear by its ability to dupe as a setting powder, too.
Clinique Fit Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 40
Col-lab Meet Your Matte Foundation
This smooth-as-silk liquid leaves a weightless veil over your complexion. While the finish is totally matte, this foundation also imparts light-reflecting particles that leave you with an incredible glow minus any shine. ($15; sallybeauty.com)
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation
Famed British makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury's line is near perfect, as she spent seasons backstage during Fashion Weeks for years creating signature looks for fashion houses in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Infused with moisturizing hyaluronic acid and protective antioxidants, this formula imparts demi-matte coverage that just happens to be chock full of actives, too.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Foundation
Fenty Beauty's Pro Filt'r Soft Matte foundation has gone viral 10 times over with good reason, revolutionizing the way the makeup industry thought about skin tone. With 40 shades that have earned a rabid following, this impossibly lightweight formula provides soft matte coverage that's better than any Insta filter. ($34; sephora.com)
Nyx Cosmetics Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation
Available in an impressive 45 shades, this drugstore buy is worth its weight in gold: The creamy matte formula seamlessly glides onto skin, doesn't transfer, and can stay put for a reported 24 hours.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick
Cruelty-free beauty brand Hourglass may be known for their near-psychedelic highlighting powders, but their stick foundation is top-notch, too. It has the ease of a concealer, the coverage of a foundation, and the weightlessness of a powder, which all provide serious staying power.
The Ordinary Coverage Foundation
Although The Ordinary's foundation has the look and feel of a weightless tinted moisturizer, it actually provides full-coverage pigmentation without ever looking chalky or cakey. ($5; beautylish.com)
Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Foundation
This liquid foundation, with its velvet matte texture, is arguably better than Facetune—after all, it was created by the OG of Instagram beauty, Huda Kattan. It's infused with hydrating argan oil and Centella asiatica, a buzzy ingredient also known as cica, that's known for its anti-inflammatory properties for a Stories-ready finish.
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte With SPF 40
Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation
This drugstore formula—which the brand tested, appropriately, under seven different photo lights—imparts incredible coverage while also leaving behind just the right amount of a lit-from-within-looking glow.
Sephora Collection Make No Mistake Foundation Stick
This budge-proof foundation offers a ton of precision when you work to cover zits or dark spots. It's also great for midday touch-ups as it requires zero beauty tools for application—and is small enough to fit in any makeup case, too.
