Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector [2] ($10) has just enough coverage to wear alone, but it also packs big skin care benefits, too.

There's no problem finding the perfect shade with the L'Oréal True Match Super Blendable Makeup [3] ($10). The colors are based on warm or cool undertones, so you'll never come out looking orange.

You wouldn't walk out of the house naked . . . would you? Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder [4] ($10) is the ideal compact to get the flawless no-makeup look.

For the ladies with deeper complexions, check out CoverGirl Queen Collection Oil-Free Natural Hue Liquid Makeup [5] ($9) in your local drugstore aisle. The shade range is darker than any other line, so there will be no more mixing up your own.

Typically you have to make a choice in drugstore aisles: sunscreen or foundation. Rimmel London BB Cream SPF 25 [6] ($7) is both! And it will cost you much less than other alphabet creams on the market.

Foundation has become much more complicated than liquid vs. powder. Just take Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation [7] ($8-$10), for example. It combines the best of both worlds with a cream consistency that finishes powder light.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers Broad Spectrum SPF 30 [8] ($10) are the perfect amount of coverage when you're holding on to a glowing tan.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation [9] ($9) lets you skip primer and concealer steps in your makeup routine. This is a do-it-all product is for the women who want the full coverage.

If you're not a fan of heavy coverage but a powder is too light, reach for Maybelline Fit Me! Liquid SPF 18 Foundation [10] ($8). It's the ideal medium coverage, and the line covers a wide range of skin tones.

With brands like Bare Minerals still fueling the mineral makeup craze, this Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder [11] ($6) is one of our top picks. The light finish of a powder keeps you matte longer, and its reasonable price makes it even better.
