5 Lightweight Drugstore Foundations

Based on 15,120 Influenster Reviews

We get it, not everyone’s trying to go full-on glam every time they reach for their foundation. If you’re looking to keep it light and natural with your makeup, a lightweight foundation may fit the bill. You know, something that doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything on your face, but gives you just enough coverage to even out your complexion. Even better, something that won’t break the bank. We rounded up five of Influensters’ favorite lightweight drugstore picks, and the results do not disappoint.

CoverGirl TruBlend is a matte formula that won’t cake, and leaves skin with a flawless finish for up to 12 hours of wear.

This is currently my favorite foundation. It applies very easily, and you can choose to go lighter for light coverage, or heavy for full coverage and it doesn’t look cakey! It feels very smooth and helps blur imperfections. It’s not the best for covering acne, but does the trick for the occasional zit. I recommend this product! ...read more

This is a beautiful foundation - I love it! At first I was using the wrong primer with it, but I tried a different primer and it worked great! The finish is so natural looking and pretty glowy (without glitter in it). This is lighter coverage than I usually use (I usually like low-high full coverage and this is a lighter medium coverage when using a sponge) but it’s so beautiful so I don’t mind! Nice staying power too.. doesn’t really look cakey or heavy.. I highly recommend if you don’t mind a lighter coverage foundation! ...read more

Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup is a silky formula that helps you get a natural look. Bonus points for SPF 20.

This is my HG foundation. It is very dewy and medium coverage. You can build it up if you need to. It's very lightweight on my face after I set with powder, but if I don't set, it transfers just a little. I wear the shade ivory(20) and it blends seamlessly. The consistency/formula is very creamy, kind of like a more liquidy lotion. I love it! ...read more
