What makes a perfect base can vary according to your needs, which is why it's important to have a few options on hand. For example, you might want something with light, breathable coverage in the day so your skin feels comfortable as the hours pass. (Here are some matte and luminous foundation options.) On the other hand, your night time activities might require something longer-lasting and with better coverage, especially if you'll be out and about and would rather not worry about your makeup. Here are our budgeproof picks for activities that last until after sundown:
