Here Are the Best Makeup Balms for Your Fall 2022 Shopping Cart

The ultimate guide for your no makeup, makeup caboodle kit.

When it comes to balms, we’re familiar with the kind we depend on to remove our makeup, but this past spring and summer, we saw a significant influx of brands releasing foundation balms. We’ve got you covered for those who have no sense of what these new trendy products are.

What is a makeup balm?

As beauty is in another state of evolution, these new balms reflect the current trend for fresh face, skin-first makeup. Formulated to be buildable, they allow you to customize your coverage to go heavier or lighter, depending on your preference. Brands such as Jones Road Beauty, with its viral “What The Foundation,” Tinted Moisture Balm gained notoriety through social media quickly, sending divided users into a frenzy with mixed reviews. Also up for a viral grab is MAKEUP BY MARIO’s SoftSculpt Transforming Skin Enhancer, a 3-in1 tinted balm that warms and evens skin tone.

As a beauty editor, it’s our job to do the heavy lifting, so you ultimately don’t have to. We’ve tested and tried these foundation replacers and have curated a list of our top picks for you to add to your shopping cart. Keep reading on for more.
