Trend to Try: Water-Based Foundation

Share Tweet Pin

As much as we adore our makeup collection (and trust us, we do), there are sometimes when less is more. For times like that, we'd rather forego heavy, full-coverage products and embrace lighter, sheer face makeup. (Sweaty, runny makeup—no thanks!) Thankfully, the beauty world has heard our call. Water-based foundations are popping up left and right, and for good reason. They super lightweight, go onto skin smoothly, and because they've got water as a base, they're super hydrating and non-oily! Scroll on to see some of the hottest water-based foundations on the market.

Guerlain Parure de Lumière Fluide

Price: $64 at Sephora

Although this might rack up a bigger price tag, Guerlain's velvety smooth formula contains Luminescent Water, a marine spring water that hydrates and illuminates skin that is entirely worth the splurge!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Water Blend Face & Body Foundation

Price: $43 at Sephora

This liquid formula is made up of 80 percent water and enriched with pro-vitamin B5, making it ideal for the person who likes variety with their foundation—sheer one day, full-coverage the next.

 tarte Water Foundation

Price: $39 at tartecosmetics.com

Blended with SPF 15 and tarte's Rainforest of the Sea complex, which consists of 20 percent water to soothe dry skin and cover redness, dark spots, and uneven skin tones, this is a hydrating option perfect for those with oily or dry skin.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

Price: $39 at Sephora

This unique barely-there formula comes infused with coconut water to give skin the hydration it needs. Plus, it contains other good-for-you ingredients to brighten skin, improve elasticity, and give an all-around glow.
