Nothing can ruin an afternoon like looking in the mirror and seeing that your foundation is literally sliding off your face—and taking the rest of your makeup with it. Of course, when you left your home this morning your foundation was flawless, but a long commute or lousy weather, to name a couple, can change that entirely. That’s why we all need some long-wearing foundation sometimes. These promise to stay put through your eight-hour workday, and even beyond.

Here are the best long-lasting foundations for 2019:

But everything else about the foundation is just as impressive. It has climate-adapting technology that helps it last through sweat and humidity. Plus, it’s like a filter for your face, smoothing out pores and fine lines, leaving you with a shine-free finish.
