One-step wonders

NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

Rustan's The Beauty Source

Staying power: 16 hours

This foundation's formula is very pigmented, so you just need two dots for your whole face. And although it says "radiant" on the bottle, expect it to have a matte (yet not flat!), skin-like finish on your complexion.

SM Megamall

Staying power: 24 hours

Now if you're looking for a breathable base that will stay on for a long period, then turn to Esteé Lauder's lighter version of their bestselling Double Wear foundation. It bestows a fresh and matte finish on the face—a major factor if you've got oily skin. Apply in sheer layers for a natural-looking effect.

Concealer + highlighter

If you want to ditch the foundation, just focus on concealing your blemishes, then dab a highlighting powder on top of the cheekbones to mimic dewy skin. Dust powder on the T-zone to keep the shine away.
