  • Kate Winslet shared the affordable and hydrating drugstore foundation she swears by for an even complexion.
  • It’s the L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation and it’s formulated with moisturizing ingredients to soothe and hydrate the skin.
  • “In the middle of my cycle, everything fires up a little bit, so I mix a couple of tones,” said the actress in an interview.

    When it comes to makeup, foundation is usually the star product. It’s the one item that will set the tone for the rest of your look and the good news is, you don’t have to spend a ton of money to get the perfect shade match. Take it from Kate Winslet—who swears by a $5 drugstore foundation.

    In an interview with Allure back in June, the Oscar-winning actress and L’Oréal Paris Global Ambassador shared that she always reaches for the L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation when it’s time for her to apply makeup.

    This top-rated hydrating foundation has over 11,000 five-star ratings on Amazon and endless rave reviews. It’s designed to match everyone’s unique skin tone, thanks to its exclusive shade-matching technology. Formulated with pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin E, its formula is super moisturizing and will work to keep your skin looking radiant and healthy. It also provides medium coverage and dries down to a natural finish, so you won’t have to worry about your skin looking too cakey.

    But what surprises us most is Winslet’s method of using the foundation. “Depending on my cycle, my skin can be a little bit more inflamed,” said the actress. “At the beginning of my cycle, my skin is a lot more even. In the middle of my cycle, everything fires up a little bit, so I mix a couple of tones,” she explained.

    While basing your foundation shade on your menstrual cycle is something we haven’t come across yet, experts do say that your skin can experience changes during your period. From acne to blemishes, your hormones fluctuate during your menstrual cycle leading to excess oil production and inflammation.

    “Throughout the month, estrogen masks the sebum-producing effects of testosterone, but when estrogen dips the week leading up to your period, newly dominant testosterone makes its presence known in the form of breakouts and blemishes,” said Rebecca Booth, M.D., board-certified obstetrician, gynecologist, and author of The Venus Week, in a previous interview for Prevention.

    The best part? The formula is free of oils, fragrances, and won’t clog pores (according to the brand), making it a better foundation option to reach for while on your period (because who doesn’t get the occasional pimple that time of the month?).

    “I absolutely LOVE this foundation,” wrote one satisfied Amazon customer. “Honestly, I would have to say that this is the best kind I’ve ever used. This foundation is very lightweight and perfect for women who love a more natural appearance instead of a cakey look.”

    “This foundation is my favorite,” added another reviewer. “It comes in enough colors to cover any complexion. I start by brushing on a light layer over my entire face, when it’s dry I blend it over my scars and uneven spots for coverage.”

    For a professional application, the brand notes that you should use a foundation brush to blend the product out across your face. However, Winslet prefers using the pads of her fingers to gently pat and press the product into her skin, helping it melt down into her complexion. No matter which method you prefer, it’s sure to come out looking flawless!
