These Drugstore Foundations Will Sort Out Even the Most Confused Skin

If you have a combination skin, then finding the perfect foundation can be difficult. Things get complicated because your oily T-zone and your dehydrated cheeks want different things from the same product.


You have two obvious choices here: Opt for a mattifying formula that'll mitigate the shine on your T-zone but run the risk of drying out the rest of your face, or reach for a foundation infused with rich, nourishing ingredients only to find your forehead has turned into an oil slick an hour later. But what if I told you there's a third choice? Smart formulas that adapt to the skin's varying conditions can detect oiliness a mile off, and they plump up your cheeks with moisture. If you think I'm joking, I'm not. These magical foundations exist, and they don't cost a fortune.

Click through, and I'll prove it with seven brilliant drugstore foundations for combination skin.
