Hate foundation? Join the club, sister!

For what seems like eons, women have been layering on the face make-up (cake-up?!) in order to fake a flawless looking face. And while we’re inclined to tell you that your skin is beautiful just the way it is and to stop comparing your face with the airbrushed faces you’re inundated with on a daily basis (#MakeupFreeMondays), we know you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t want to even out your skin tone. Which isn’t to say that we’re giving up on the Real Beauty message! But is to say that we hear you and we’re here to help!

3 Ways To Fake An Even Skin Tone, Without Foundation

Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector ($32)
Combining the benefits of a skin treatment with the perks of a foundation, this all-in-one skin perfector does just that: perfect your skin! All in one simple step! With more coverage, hydration, and optical blurring than a BB or CC cream, but without the cakey look and feel of a foundation, this lightweight formula transforms your skin with light-diffusing spheres that blurs uneven skin tone and imperfection for a naturally-looking, more radiant complexion. Plus, it’s so sheer that you can literally wear any shade (I tried a very warm – and dark! – “Dark” and it merely doubled as a bronzer!) so ordering online just because nearly risk-free! Oh, and it has SPF 20. Yup, it’s a winner.

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield ($65)
If you don’t want any color tint at all, Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield with SPF 30 is bound to be your new BFF. The clear (and yes we mean actually CLEAR!) formula goes on silky smooth, instantly blurring any fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, or uneven skin tone or texture. 94% of users saw improved smoothness and texture! Better yet, it’s packed with Dr. Murad’s skincare expertise too, meaning it won’t just temporarily blur your skin, it will also to actually improve your complexion over time too. Also, it smells like the beach, which is pretty much our favorite scent!

Guerlain Meteorites Base Perfecting Pearls ($74)
Formulated with Guerlain’s signature Stardust Technology, this gel primer is pretty much as close to an Instagram filter in a bottle as you can get. Using a unique celestial powder to give your skin a soft-focus, it blurs imperfections for a radiant and glowing finish, all the while controlling excess oil, ensuring an even skin tone, and smoothing fine lines too. Bottom line: it’s color-correcting and radiance-boosting primer at its finest!
