When doing makeup, our immediate thought is that foundation is essential for every look. It’s the base after all and helps even out our complexion before applying anything. For others, sometimes they completely skip the foundation part.
The simplest reason for this is going for a no-makeup makeup look. But there are also those who want to give their skin a break or want to avoid breakouts caused by the foundation. Beauty vlogger JKissa is one of the few YouTubers who post no-foundation tutorials, and each look works.
Are you looking to give up foundation or just want a lightweight substitute you can use daily? Whatever it is, you might find what you need below.
Belo Sun Expert Perfecting Shield Tinted Sunscreen SPF50
The rainy season may be upon us but we’re still getting intense sunlight from time to time. Belo Sun Expert’s tinted sunscreen will give your skin SPF and can also conceal fine lines on your face. The formula also adjusts to morena skin so you don’t have to worry about getting a white cast. Plus, it’s lightweight and non-greasy. Available at Zalora PH.
Bioré UV Acqua Rich Watery BB Cream 3D Effect
This weightless BB cream has a long-lasting and breathable formula that gives you a natural-looking finish. You can also use it to create light contours and highlights with its brightening powder element. Available at select Watson’s stores.
NYX Color Correcting Cream
If you want a product that has sheer coverage but cancels out discolorations, opt for NYX’s CC cream. The nude shade is a good go-to when you don’t feel like doing a full-beat makeup look. Not to mention that it leaves your skin looking brighter and nourished thanks to the vitamin E. Available at SM Makati.
Dr. Jart Ceramidin Day Tint
This product can work as a primer, sunscreen, and blemish concealer. Dr. Jart’s day tint’s formula gives you a flawless spot-free look before applying your BB cream or powder on top. Available on Sephora PH.
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
There are days when I just apply concealer and set it with powder. For a full-coverage product that won’t look patchy, try Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage concealer. The palette contains two shades—one dark and one light—which allows you to customize according to your undertones. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
Clarins Pore Perfecting Mattifying Kit
You can use this pressed powder to set your concealer or BB cream, or just on its own. Clarins’ mattifying kit also contains blotting papers to use when you need to get rid of shine on your T-zone. The translucent powder also helps minimize pores and gives your skin a fresh matte finish. Available on Nordstrom.
