Every woman knows how hard can be, find a lightweight foundation that suits her needs. There’s a lot of guesswork involved, and what looks great on in the store can quickly become a different story four hours later.
In this article, we will go through the best 10 lightweight foundations that might make it for you.
1. MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Foundation
This lightweight foundation comes in an impressive range of 35 colors. It’s virtually impossible not to find a shade that matches your natural skin tones. This brand broke into the beauty industry by formulating cosmetics that withstand the challenges of the film and TV industries, but also deliver a natural look. In real life, the fluid texture of Ultra HD Foundation forms a second skin. This liquid makeup is a good choice if you want a lightweight foundation with good coverage.
2. Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation
Shea Extract soothes and protects the skin from drying out, so you won’t need to worry if you’re wearing it for long periods. It is is one of the best lightweight foundations in the market because it keeps skin matte. It’s even created with selfies in mind: it’s formulated to prevent flashback shine when a flash hits your skin. It also delivers light-to-medium coverage that’s breathable, so pores won’t come under pressure and clog.
3. MAC studio face and body foundation
This is surely a classic cult favorite that continues to hold its own among the new and exciting launches that land on our desk. It’s a thin, milky formula that doesn’t dry down on the skin immediately, giving you plenty of time to blend and work it. The coverage can be built up nicely in the areas that need it, and it has a dewy finish that fades in time to satin.
4. Charlotte Tilbury light wonder foundation
Light wonder remains a favorite among Charlotte Tilbury’s foundation offerings. It’s completely low-maintenance – applying beautifully even when quickly dabbed on with fingertips (no time-consuming brush work required) – and gives dewy, “natural” coverage. Once applied, it’s hardly noticeable on the skin, but those who struggle with oily patches may find it needs a top up during the day.
5. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
The Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer continues to impress from one generation to another. We heard many people have used this for years and see themselves using it for the rest of their lives. It’s so light on the skin, never feels greasy and offers complete coverage, perfect for your next dinner date.
6. L’Oréal Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation
This drugstore favorite continues to surprise many! It has enough coverage to hide my acne spots but still lets your skin show through everywhere else, and it stays on all day. The L’Oréal Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation also offers the perfect satin finish. It’s not matte but doesn’t look shiny either.
7. Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless
Another drugstore favorite is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation. This product definitely lives up to its promise of a “matte and poreless” finish. It’s also very lightweight and available in so many colors that you’re sure to find a shade that’s perfect for your complexion. Its consistency also makes it easy to apply and blend. Best of all, this is sure to be well within your budget.
8. The Ordinary Serum Foundation
The Ordinary Serum Foundations are lightweight medium-coverage formulations available in 21 shades. These foundations offer moderate coverage that looks natural with a very lightweight serum feel. Although The Ordinary Serum foundation may be pricier some off the shelf foundations, every pump goes a long way.
9. Kat Von D Beauty True Portrait Foundation
If putting any pigment on your face whatsoever feels like a necessary evil, you’ll love this medium-thickness blurring foundation. The liquid-to-powder formula is so lightweight and silky, it feels more like a serum, one that was made for easily applying with your fingers. You’ll truly forget you’re wearing anything but moisturizer until you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and realize how glowy you are.
10. Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation
There are countless amazing stories about Les Beiges which makes many of us want to try it. Also, admit it, using Chanel products can make anyone feel extra fancy. It surely isn’t cheap, but a little goes a long way. And besides, it doesn’t hurt to treat your beloved skin once in a while.
