Buildable Coverage

One thing that sets sticks apart from traditional foundations is their lightweight, creamy formulas that can be built up to achieve the desired coverage. So, whether you’re going for a no makeup makeup look (try Nudestix Nudies Tinted Blur for the ultimate natural finish) or all-out glam, the flexible foundation stick has got all bases covered.

Travel Friendly

Light, slim, and multipurpose (more on that below), foundation sticks are ideal for travelling and on-the-go touch ups. Pop in your hand luggage to save precious space in your makeup bag for landing (the perfect excuse to squeeze another palette in).  

Easy Application

If you find yourself applying your makeup in the car/at the bus stop/on the train, investing in a fool-proof foundation stick is about to make your life a whole lot easier. Made to be mess-free and easy to use, these foundations are perfect for when you’re short on time or on the move. Simply swipe on, blend out, and you’re good to go.  


If there was ever such thing as a textbook multi-functional product, the foundation stick would be it. Use as a concealer to swipe over blemishes, dark circles, or imperfections, apply a shade deeper than your natural skintone to the hollows of the cheeks and jawline to replace your contour, or go lighter on the tops of the cheeks and cupid’s bow to highlight your best features. These versatile sticks can do it all.

Last All Day

Sick of your makeup sliding off your face by midday? We feel you. Thankfully, foundation sticks are made to last the test of time, making them the ultimate desk to dancefloor hero. Apply Milani Conceal & Perfect Foundation Stick in the morning and expect a flawless base that lasts up to twelve (!) hours.  

Kind To Skin

Foundation sticks aren’t only innovative in their design, their formulas are often enriched with nourishing skincare ingredients too. Wet n wild’s photo focus stick foundation is case and point. Infused with argon oil, this long-wear stick foundation moisturises the complexion and enables seamless blending.  

Blend Like A Pro

Speaking of blending, foundation sticks are also renowned for their blendability, creating an effortlessly natural finish every time.  Swipe over freshly primed skin and blend out using your fingertips or a beauty sponge to get that perfect, barely there base.
