Liq­uids are emul­sions of wa­ter and oil, the lat­ter of which could be a type of sil­i­cone fluid or a plant or min­eral oil. The wa­ter por­tion is what feels light and re­fresh­ing on your skin, while the oil is what leaves you feel­ing mois­tur­ized. Liq­uid foun­da­tions tend to have a higher level of emol­lients, which makes them more sheer and eas­ier to smooth over your skin with your fin­gers or another tool.

Liq­uids that are spe­cially la­belled for oily or acne-prone skin tend to con­tain more pow­ders and medic­i­nal in­gre­di­ents to help absorb se­bum and keep break­outs at bay. “As you be­come older, your skin be­comes lack­lus­tre and begins to sag,” says Tilbury.
