HOW THEY WORK
“In general, these lighter liquids and creams contain additional skincare ingredients to provide the benefits of a moisturizer and a cosmetic foundation in one product,” says Twohy. They also usually have less pigment, providing more lightweight, sheer coverage than standard foundations. This can be ideal for those with freckles who prefer to avoid masking them but still need a bit of coverage to hide other imperfections. If you have oily skin, look for matte-finish formulas that contain more powder to help absorb midday shine. Those with dry skin don’t have to rule out this category completely but will probably have to skip out on their multi-tasking benefits and layer them over another moisturizer.
