Finding your perfect foundation can be a chore. Trust me, I get it. A seemingly endless game of trial-and-error ensues the minute you decide you need a new base, and it seems we’re all in never-ending pursuit of "the one." You know, the one that makes you look like you’ve had 8+ hours sleep, drink 2 litres of water a day and have perfect skin. Yeah, that one. Well, here are 8 foundations under £15 from Boots that might work for you.

Being in the beauty industry means I have tried an endless amount of products, and foundations are undoubtedly what I get most excited about. I’ve tried some great ones, some pretty terrible ones, and everything in-between. But what I’m asked about the most when it comes to foundation is whether I can recommend a solid budget foundation formula that won’t break the bank.

The answer is always yes. While I love a spenny base from the likes of Tom Ford or Chanel, money does not always permit. There are some amazing cheaper alternatives in the market, all of which you can pick up at your local Boots store. I’ve listed some of my favourites below, but always tell people asking for recommendations to consider three things when shopping for a foundation, regardless of price: their skin type (this will effect the type of finish they shop for), the type of finish they prefer (matte, glowy, natural?) and how much coverage they want, from low to very high. Answer these three questions and read the below guide to find your perfect budget foundation.


And there you have it. These seven of the best under £15 are perfect for when you're next on a budget, or simply want to experiment with something new. Enjoy.
