The best foundations tends to ticks a lot of boxes – concealing without masking, evening out and creating that non-oily natural glow while still looking natural. And if you think ‘lightweight’ means light or sheer coverage, think again. Lightweight foundation really means that when you wear said foundation you can’t feel it on your skin (your skin is still able to breathe) – regardless of how much you apply. So, when I talk about lightweight foundation I feel that it should be able to achieve a coverage which evens out your skin, minimises the appearance of any imperfections. Read on for the lightweight foundations to try this summer!
1. BEST FOR OILY/ COMBINATION SKIN
MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL & DEFINE FOUNDATION
Summer is officially here so its can get hot indoors and even hotter outdoors. This foundations formula can be used subtly and is buildable and it can leave the skin looking touchable velvety, making it very ideal for oily/ combination skin. To create that subtle look, I would recommend applying the foundation straight from the stick and then blending it into your skin using your fingers. And please don’t forget to use a powder after application, this will make this foundation
Your outer beauty will capture the eyes; Your inner beauty will capture the heart.
2. BEST FOR DRY/ NORMAL SKIN
GLOSSIER PERFECTING SKIN TINT
This foundation is an ultra thin formula with a fairly watery consistency. It is a fairly watery consistency, which may lead you to think it lacks coverage, but in fact, it will perfectly even out discolouration and the odd one or two breakout. It is a must-try foundation for the summer because it allows the skin to glow without appearing greasy.
3. BEST FOR WHEN YOU NEED THAT EXTRA COVERAGE

This is a must if you love a high coverage foundation. With its stay-all-day formula and velvet matte finish, this foundation will leave you with a flawless complexion whilst still feeling lightweight and comfortable to wear.
