In cinema and television, as in beauty, every star needs a trusty sidekick. Lucy had Ethel, Maverick had Goose, and Gem had her Holograms. The same goes for makeup – foundation in particular.

So much so that they’re often considered just as important as the actual foundation in the game of complexion perfection. So without further ado, may VIOLET GREY present the nominees for the best foundation sidekicks, selected by the artists who perfect the complexions of stars like Felicity Jones, Reese Witherspoon, and Dakota Johnson, below.
