Best Light Weight Foundations

As summer approaches we’re all updating our make up collection with more season appropriate products. Even after all the hype over tinted moisturizers and BB creams, sometimes you just need your trusty foundation for the optimal coverage.

Now along with a flawless complexion, foundations have a heavier consistency and are greasier than the average BB cream but I wanted to share some of my top picks with more of a lightweight formula that still pack a punch.


CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua

This is by far my absolute favorite foundation EVER. I love this foundation so much and has been my holy grail since 2011, I cannot say enough good things about it. It is the best lightweight foundation I have ever tried and it has amazing coverage. I deal with a lot of hyper pigmentation because of my acne scars and this covers it all up seamlessly. It is quite pricey but definitely worth the investment.ÈRE-AQUA-118356


NEUTROGENA SkinClearing Oil Free Makeup

This is a wonderful drugstore buy especially if you do deal with acne. It’s lightweight, doesn’t clog your pores, long lasting and contains salicylic acid so it helps prevent further breakout.


NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

A cult favorite and a must have, that is if you can find your shade in stock. It has a wonderful finish and doesn’t feel like you are wearing too much make up.


REVLON Nearly Naked Makeup

A drugstore foundation that is a dupe for the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. As the name says it has a light feel on your skin, good coverage and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy.


HOURGLASS Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free

This foundations leaves you with a matte powder like finish so it doesn’t even feel like foundation. Although this product has mixed reviews, I personally think it’s a great foundation. It has a sheer finish, great coverage and doesn’t clog your pores.
