Easing yourself back into wearing make-up? These lightweight formulas feel comfortable to wear.

Now that social plans are finally back in full flow, so are our make-up routines. But after a year at home – during which, many of us focused our attention on our skincare routines – applying make-up now feels… well, uncomfortable. Particularly when it comes to applying base products. Namely, foundation.

Thankfully, foundations have come a long way over the years and there are lots of lightweight formulas available for a comfier feel. 

These innovations still offer long-lasting and buildable coverage but also feel lighter on the skin. Plus, they have a natural, fresh finish and don’t feel cakey or drying.

If you’re struggling with wearing make-up after lockdown or just want a new foundation suitable for summer, we’ve rounded up our favourite lightweight formulas.
