As we head into a new season, it's time to rethink our makeup. Starting with the base, we've picked the best autumn foundation on site right now.

A new season means new challenges for our skin. At this time of year, it's not uncommon to see dryness due to weather, sun exposure and air conditioning. Oh, and redness, breakouts and dull skin also make an appearance (yay!) Time to update our makeup, starting with the all-important base; here is our pick of the best autumn foundation available right now at allbeauty.TIP: Found a base you love but it's just not 'dewy' enough? Blend in a drop of highlighter before you apply, for an instant all-over lift.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup - SHOP 

Using the latest 'cushion' technology, this stick foundation hydrates the skin and gives a glowing, healthy look for up to 8 hours. Contains pearl, ruby and sapphire powder, plus algae extract, apple, gentian, murumuru seed butter and gold.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - SHOP

Containing vitamins B5, C and E, this foundation is just what your skin needs! Vitamin C helps mop up pigmentation, while Vitamin E heals damage and B5 adds moisture, soothes, heals and regenerates skin. The result is a hydrating, radiant complexion (at a budget price).

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup - SHOP

Contains micronised diamond powder to scatter light particles - the result is a radiant, more youthful glow. Medium to full coverage with a gorgeous, creamy finish, it's ideal if dry/ageing skin is a concern.

 Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup - SHOP

Actively fights blemishes with its medicated formula and controls the oily t-zone. If your skin's breaking out from sun exposure and the change of season, this buildable liquid foundation is a great choice. An allbeauty customer said "I am 37 still getting acne breakouts... This doesn't cause me any more spots or make my breakout worse. This foundation covers everything and gives a lovely matt finish, which I love. It is also buildable... I love the fact it doesn't make my skin worse just better if anything. It kept my very oily t-zone mat all day."

Revlon ColorStay Foundation Oily/Combination Skin - SHOP

A great foundation for anyone suffering from oily/combination skin. Coverage is very full with oil absorbing properties, so definitely not for those with dry skin. A little goes a long way and the result is a lovely, matte finish.

Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation SPF 10 - SHOP

Contains pink opal pigments with mineral and plant extracts. The result is a creamy, light-reflecting foundation that hydrates the skin and gives a luminous complexion.

Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect - SHOP

Great as we head into party season - PhotoReady foundation contains clever light-filtering technology that leaves you looking poreless and airbrushed, with soft-focus pigments. It's oil-free, fragrance free, contains SPF20 and provides good coverage.

Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 - SHOPFights pigmentation from sun exposure and helps brighten the skin. Coverage is moderate to full with a lovely natural finish - great if you're prone to breakouts or redness.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup - SHOP

One of our all-time favourite foundations. Skin looks incredibly natural and refreshed, with a luminous, polished look. Water-based, it's non-comedogenic and contains SPF15 for general 'out and about' sun exposure. Coverage is light to medium but for skin that glows it's a great choice.
