A budget friendly, lasting foundation by Rimmel. Considering it’s only £7.99 and available at most pharmacies, this foundation is pretty amazing!

3. Mac Pro Long-Wear Foundation SPF15 £25 at maccosmetics.co.uk
This foundation lasts an unbelievably long time! Build it up while applying to ensure that it is nicely blended and you have the coverage level you want, but once it’s on it stays put.
