If you’re anything like me, then you’ll hate the feel of foundation on you’re skin, yet you still own excessive amounts of the stuff. Having said that, I’ve come across a selection of foundations that feel lightweight and comfortable on your face, almost like you’re not wearing makeup at all.
If you’re all for the super light coverage, but something that skin evens out your skin tone and leaves you with a dewy finish, then you’ll love something like the No7 Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation. This stuff is probably one of my all time favourite foundations, and the one i’ve worn to all my special events such as prom. If you like the finish that this one gives, but you want something with a little more coverage, then the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation. This gel-formula applies seamlessly and surprisingly covers a fair amount.
Like most over people, I’m a big fan of the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (blog post here). I love the fact that it’s quick to apply, has probably the best coverage out of the lot, but leaves your complexion looking dewy and, like the name suggests, glowy. A perfect option for summer, and one that is well worth the hype. Something similar, yet with a rather deceiving name, is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation. Defiantly more of a medium/buildable than ‘nude’, this one again, gives you the coverage, but is super comfortable on the skin and actually looks very natural. A new favourite of mine recently.
Last but not least, on to some old favourites. L’oreal’s True Match has always been a winner. It’s a little more on the satin/matte side than the others i’ve mentioned, but still manages to feel lightweight on the skin. It does have a tendency to cling to dry patches however, so I recommend moisturising well first before applying if you have more dry skin. Maybelline Fit Me was a love of mine right after my ‘Dream Matte Mousse’ phase in my early school days, during the time when everyone and their mother used it, usually a couple of shades darker than their skin tone in order to achieve the oh so famous foundation line along your jaw – how lovely. Fit Me is a great light coverage option, with matching concealers and powders in the range (both of which I also have and love). A great choice for makeup newbies.
