I thought I’d do a post today on some of the best cushion foundations for sheer, lightweight coverage. Spring is here and Summer soon to follow so I’m sure many of you are lightening up your foundation routines and trader in higher coverage formulas for more sheerer, lighter ones.
There’s nothing as bad as wearing a ton of foundation on a hot, humid day! I’m actually one who likes sheer, lightweight coverage throughout the year. I have dull skin that’s drier but I do not have visible pores, blemishes, or acne to conceal. So, lighter foundations to even out my skin tone, brighten it while easing dullness is about all the coverage I require.
I started using cushion foundation in 2012 just around the time it started to gain popularity of Korea. Many Korean brands offer higher coverage in their cushion formulas but I’ve lucky enough to discover some very, very nice lighter fluid cushion foundations right here in the US.
Here are my picks of the best cushion foundations for sheer, lightweight my skin but better coverage!
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free All-in-1 ABC Cushion Foundation SPF 50 $16.99 (Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off at Ulta.com)
One of the more surprisingly cushion releases this Spring would be from Physicians Formula. Well, maybe it shouldn’t come as such a surprise considering I’ve always had great success with some of Physicians Formula’s foundations as they do a very good job at easing dullness and brightening up my complexion. Their new cushion is available in three shades and has a fantastic brightening formula that eases dullness, brightens my complexion, evens my skin tone, and still has plenty of coverage for those seeking to conceal minor redness or darkness. This formula is creamy, light, and sets to a smooth, even finish on skin. It’s turned into one of my favorite cushions released this year!
Sephora Wonderful Cushion Foundation $24
Sephora’s new cushion foundation came and went in the blink of an eye. At the moment you’re unable to get this online but I’ve seen a variety of Sephora stores that do carry it! I hope this doesn’t mean it is discontinued because I really love this one. Light, creamy, with buildiable coverage this cushion gives my skin a fresh, natural look!
It Cosmetics CC+ Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation SPF 50 $38
It’s expensive, it’s small, and it’s the best. It Cosmetics CC+ Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation isn’t for everyone but it is and will likely stay one of my holy grail foundations. It’s sheer, it’s brightening, and it feels heavily on my skin. This is your skin but way better! This is the type of foundation that will take your own good skin and make it better! I love this stuff!
