Foundation is a polarizing topic. As with other delicate products like liquid eyeliner and red lipstick, some makeup wearers love it, some can't stand it, and some fall somewhere in the zone of ambivalence where they could really go either way. I happen to identify with the latter group because I adore a full face from makeup to the perfect foundation, but might as well skip this step in my daily regime.
What matters most to me is that any formula I wear all day or just for a few hours must feel light on my skin. We've all had a heavy, cake-like foundation that may look good in photos, but is an absolute nightmare. It smears, it carries over and sometimes you can actually feel it clog your pores. (No thanks!)
Even if full coverage is your goal, you can get there with light formulas. There are countless gorgeous, weightless options that deliver impressive pigment and still feel like you don't even wear makeup. Take a look at our preparation of the 16 best lightweight foundations in advance, which both make-up artists and editors praise.
