Let’s be honest, we all love how our skin looks after we’ve airbrushed the hell out of it on our photo editing app, right? But there’s only so much great lighting and trial and error we can do to take the perfect selfie. We originally thought that the HD foundation was simply make-up brands capitalising on our Instagram-loving vanity, but it turns out there’s more to it than a catchy name.

Makeup artists love them and celebs can’t get enough of them for one reason – the camera loves HD foundations. The tiny pigments within the formula catch and absorb the light giving you a luminous finish.
SHALL I BUY ONE?
As someone who doesn’t like wearing a lot of make-up, HD foundations are a little on the heavy side for me for daily wear. But they’re great for an evening look when you want something a little more sturdy and reliable (Ok, it’s not a pick-up truck but you get the gist!)
Here are five of the best out there, now smile!
