Glowing and soft

Dewy cushion foundations are the ultimate makeup essentials of 2021 and beyond. Don’t believe us? Google searches for product recos for this category have been consistently increasing over the past few months, as businesses and offices go back to face-to-face work across the world. It’s no wonder beauty lovers have been thinking of refreshing their stash with these lightweight complexion products.

It also doesn’t hurt that these have skin-caring ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, that make the skin look and feel good, which hopefully limits our chances of getting maskne. It’s also very common to find formulas with SPF content that protect your skin from sun damage, an essential skincare ingredient especially for those living in sunnier areas like us.
