Many of us are starting to pay more attention to what we put in our bodies—green stuff, vitamins, etc. But what about what we put on them? Though we don’t actually ingest them, the beauty products we use go right onto (and soak into) our pretty pores every single day. So why is it that we often don’t pay much attention to the ingredients in these products as we slather them on our faces? If you’re looking to clean up your beauty routine, foundation is a great place to start. Finding one that’s natural and gets the job done can be tough. Lucky for you, we’ve used our unique algorithm to round up the best ones on the market.

BEST FOR: Eliminating shine
USERS SAID: “This is my go-to powder foundation! I love that is is vegan and there are so many colors to choose from. Easy to apply and makes a big difference without being heavy.
