13 Foundations Your Favorite Celebrities Swear By
If you've ever wished you could take a peek into your favorite celebrity's medicine cabinet or makeup bag, we can relate. You're currently among people who pause, screenshot, and zoom in on Instagram posts and TikTok videos to see what products are lining a star's vanity. It's always fun to learn about a celeb's must-have products — the items they reach for constantly and actually buy for themselves. Already we know what a handful of celebrities smell like and the lip combos they re-create time and time again, but now, we're rounding up the foundations they use.
Many people are picky about their foundation; they have a go-to and stay loyal to it for years. That means shopping for a new option can be tricky, but if a product earns a celebrity's stamp of approval (organically, that is), that piques our interest. It's even better when a star is introduced to a foundation by their makeup artist, which is the case for Meghan Markle. That's how you know it's really worth a try.
These celebrity-approved foundations range in price, and the brands range from high-end companies like Dior to affordable drugstore heroes like NYX Professional Makeup. Whether you're looking for something full coverage and matte or lightweight with a barely there finish, there's something for you on this list. If you're on the hunt for a new option or just curious about what stars use on their face, keep scrolling.
Gemma Chan's Favorite Foundation
Gemma Chan divulged her favorite foundation to Vogue in a Beauty Secrets YouTube video: the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15. She uses it "just where I need to balance out my complexion a bit."
While Chan loves it just to spot conceal, we love the fact that it's buildable. The formula offers 16 hours of wear and is full coverage. It has a natural, multidimensional matte finish that's breathable and weightless.
Camila Cabello's Favorite Foundation
Camila Cabello's glam team has used the L'Oréal Paris Makeup Infallible Up to 24HR Pro-Glow Foundation on the singer on numerous occasions. We love it because it's affordable, buildable, and lightweight.
Meghan Markle's Favorite Foundation
We love a product that does double duty, and the fact that this foundation can be used on the face and body is a major perk.
Margot Robbie's Favorite Foundation
Margot Robbie revealed to Marie Claire that her favorite foundation for everyday use is the Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation, and we totally get why. The formula glides onto the skin and it's so lightweight, you'll probably forget you're wearing it.
Halsey's Favorite Foundation
Halsey's makeup artist Denika Bedrossian has used the Nyx Professional Makeup Born to Glow Naturally Radiant Foundation on the singer for the Emmys.
This affordable option is great for giving a nice all-over glow while still offering a fair amount of coverage. Read our full Nyx Professional Makeup Born to Glow Naturally Radiant Foundation review.
Saweetie's Favorite Foundation
Saweetie disclosed in a Vogue Beauty Secrets video that she loves the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. This product is a fan favorite because it's buildable and the longwear claims are true. If you've got a long night ahead of you, this is the perfect base makeup product.
One of POPSUGAR's former beauty editors says, "[It's] a favorite of mine, as well as many of my fellow beauty editors. The foundation itself dispenses from its pump as a thick liquid then sweeps across skin to blur any blemishes and redness. Despite it being full coverage, this foundation still looks completely natural — and feels like skin once it sets. It also never transfers, even on your sweatiest of days."
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Favorite Foundation
Rose Inc Skin Enhance Luminous Tinted Serum ($37, originally $49)
OK, OK, we know it's her own makeup brand, but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley recently told Into the Gloss that her favorite foundation is the Rose Inc Skin Enhance Luminous Tinted Serum. "I use Skin Enhance for sheer coverage, and then my concealer all over, a little bit like a foundation."
This product is perfect if you're looking for barely-there coverage. Read our full Rose Inc Skin Enhance Luminous Tinted Serum review.
Hailey Bieber's Favorite Foundation
Hailey Bieber has been seen posting a lot of videos getting ready on TikTok, and one of our editors spotted a near constant in every single video: the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation.
This product is perfect for any no-makeup-makeup look you have in the works because it's light and airy but still offers quite a bit of coverage.
Read our editor's full review of the foundation here.
Addison Rae's Favorite Foundation
If that isn't enough to convince you, just know the product also has over three thousand five-star reviews on Sephora.
Kendall Jenner's Favorite Foundation
Kendall Jenner told Vogue India in a YouTube video that she uses the Giorgio Armani Power Fabric+ Foundation SPF 25. "I've been using it for a really long time now since I was pretty young. One of my sisters put me on. It doesn't feel like you have makeup on at all," the model says.
If you've been searching for a matte foundation that offers medium to full coverage, this is a perfect pick. Plus, you can't beat a Kendall Jenner-approved item.
Winnie Harlow's Favorite Foundation
Winnie Harlow revealed to Allure that the MAC Fix Soft Matte Foundation Stick in the shade NC45 is her favorite complexion product. Unfortunately, that product has been discontinued, but the Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 is the liquid equivalent, and it's honestly just as good. Plus, it comes in a wide range of shades.
Sydney Sweeney's Favorite Foundation
The Il Makiage Woke Up Like This Flawless Base Foundation is Sydney Sweeney's go-to, according to her Beauty Secrets video with Vogue. You've probably seen the brand's viral videos on TikTok and Instagram that showcase how amazing the product is, and we'd have to agree with Sweeney. It's a winner, especially when it comes to shade matching.
Miranda Kerr's Favorite Foundation
Miranda Kerr recently revealed in an interview with E! that she likes to mix a few drops of face oil with the Rms Beauty UnCoverup Natural Finish Concealer. "One tip or trick that I do is to put a drop of it in my RMS concealer. Then, I brush it with a makeup brush. It gives me this beautiful, glowy look that feels lightweight."
It works as both a concealer and a light foundation. Its creamy texture nourishes skin and covers any imperfections, without leaving a heavy finish.
