Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation ($42; Sephora)

A little bit goes a long way with this foundation, so it’s definitely worth the $42 price tag. The blendable coverage hides the spots you want covered, without feeling like you’re wearing too much.

Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup ($23; Clinique)

This streak-proof and sweat-proof foundation is perfect for a Zumba or kickboxing class because it goes on light and lasts all-day. This is a great foundation for people that typically stay away from liquid and want to give it a try. Clinique has a well-known reputation for leaving the skin blemish-free, which is perfect for people that sweat a lot.
