What are the best fluid foundations?

The foundation is the basis of successful makeup for a fresh, luminous and glowing complexion. But find the liquid foundation perfect can be a real headache. It has to be quite covering and meet the needs of our skin. Discover our top 15 of the best second skin effect foundations.

Why use a fluid foundation?

Their light texture acts like a tinted fluid on the skin, blending in an instant and unifying without leaving traces. The skin is clear, luminous and smooth with the impression of wearing nothing. Ideal for natural makeup, “no makeup” effect and without risking ending up with a plaster effect complexion. The fluid foundations will hide redness, imperfections, smooth fine lines and wrinkles without marking the folds, while bringing radiance and glow to the skin.

Most fluid foundations are now made primarily from ingredients of natural origin, and are formulated without silicones or chemical compounds. Brands are thus focusing on formulas to offer fluid and covering foundations, while responding to each person’s skin problems.

Above all, the most important thing is to choose your foundation shade. Too light, it’s a guaranteed dull and livid complexion, too dark, hello the orange effect and the demarcations at the level of the neck! You have to determine your shade (light, light, medium, matte, dark…) and the undertone (cold, warm, neutral) to find the winning combo. The safest thing is still to try the foundation in the store. To find out if the color is suitable, try it on the chin / jawline, to compare the shade with the color of the face and neck.

  • Dry or sensitive skin

The fluid foundation is the ideal choice for dry or sensitive skin, because it won’t dry out the skin, unlike some compact foundations. Choose a moisturizing foundation enriched with vegetable oils and plant extracts for hydrated skin all day long. We find them in particular in the brands Charlotte Tillbury, Rare Beauty or Fenty Beauty.

  • Acne or blemish-prone skin

No, foundation does not make acne worse! Just prepare well and clean your skin before and after application. Turn to non-comedogenic fluid foundations enriched with hyaluronic acid and vitamins, such as Healthy Mix from Bourjois, which improves the appearance of the skin over applications while hydrating the skin.

For mature skin, there is now a wide range of anti-aging fluid foundation as we have seen at L’Oréal with their Age Perfect range. Their shapeule helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lineswhile maintaining the hydration and elasticity of the skin.

For apply a fluid foundationyou have two options: the brush or the beauty blender. With the brush, we will spread the material with continuous movements to avoid traces. The finish will be natural and quite covering, with the advantage of being able to be more precise. For the beauty blender, it must be moistened before use. We will then take a little material that we just tap on the whole face, starting from the T zone and stretching outwards. The sponge gives a very natural and blurred look, and allows you to easily dose the coverage by adding material little by little if necessary.
