Foundation Day: Dreamy Skin In An Instant

Not a “foundation person”? Some of us never quite get used to the feeling of putting on a full makeup base before applying other makeup. There are, of course, BB and CC creams, which keeps your skin moisturized and also gives the effect of sheer coverage, and then there are also cushion compacts that provide a weightless, dewy finish. But sometimes, even the most reluctant foundation-wearers require a little something more heavy-duty and full-coverage to get through the day. That’s where this new breed of light-as-air foundations comes in. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite lightweight bases that will make you a convert for sure!
