Another great foundation, according to Denika Bedrossian – who has worked with Kelly Osbourne and Kelis – is this one from Revlon. “This magical foundation has incredible long-wear and buildable coverage. Its oil-control components help with shine and it sets matte to the skin. I am constantly searching for and trying new things. As an artist, you never know what will surprise you and be incredible. I actually tried this after seeing so many commercials and finally decided to go out a buy a few shades. Hooked ever since!”
NYX Total Control Drop Foundation €18.50
