5 Drugstore Foundation Sticks That Will Simplify Your Makeup RoutineJuly 10, 2019
A little fun fact about us: we’re always on the go. Sometimes we’ll dash from a morning workout straight to the office, or maybe from a no makeup-makeup day to a fancy event at night. In both instances, we always keep a few beauty essentials with us — one of which is always some sort of portable complexion product. Recently, we’ve found ourselves reaching for foundation sticks to blend into our skin on the go. And since we’re always on the hunt for drugstore dupes for those high-end products, we’ve sourced the best of the best affordable foundation sticks out there. Ahead, find five drugstore foundation sticks that won’t let you down (or make a mess) in that backseat of that Uber.
