The Best Sheer Foundations for a Flawless Second Skin LookMarch 02, 2020
We all have our signature makeup style, and it usually starts with foundation. While some prefer to wear full-coverage and matte foundation, for me, it’s all about a formula that’s natural-looking and lightweight. If you also fall into the latter group, you likely stock your makeup collection with complexion products that offer a second skin look and feel. If you’re still searching for your holy-grail formula, we rounded up six of the best sheer foundations ahead.
Just because your foundation is lightweight doesn’t mean it can’t be long-wear. This formula has a breathable texture while being waterproof and transfer- and sweat-resistant. It truly does it all.
The great thing about this radiance-boosting foundation is that it’s hydrating, too. It keeps skin smooth and glowing for up to 12 hours, thanks to ingredients like collagen and hyaluronic acid.
As far as we’re concerned, “tinted moisturizer” is just another name for “sheer-coverage foundation.” This multi-tasking product offers light-to-medium coverage in a hydrating moisturizer and SPF 23 protection.
For the ultimate no-makeup look try a foundation serum. This one offers buildable color in a semi-matte finish, as well as broad-spectrum SPF 20.
This serum foundation gives you a true second skin look with a luminous, velvety finish. Ingredients in the formula like aloe leaf, rosehip and jojoba oil nourish your skin during wear to help your complexion look flawless.
What’s even more lightweight and natural-looking than a foundation serum or tinted moisturizer? A tinted face oil. This makeup-meets-skin-care product is infused with botanicals to boost radiance and hydration while offering just enough pigment.
