6 Weightless but Flawless Foundations

by Sally O'Kelly 12 months ago

6 Flawless Foundations

The best way to achieve a flawless complexion is with a high-coverage foundation but there’s nothing worse than a thick and cakey feel. Weightless foundations are becoming increasingly popular, offering that coveted airbrushed finish without the heaviness of traditional full coverage foundations. 

Breathable and comfortable, we’ve picked out six gorgeous foundations which have medium to full coverage but are undetectable and lightweight on the skin.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

The NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation offers a long-wearing, full-coverage finish which looks natural on the skin. The stunning foundation uses advanced flexible polymers which move with the skin to provide breathability without masking it. The high-pigmented foundation is also crafted with gold and green pigments to reflect light and counterbalance redness and dullness for a brighter, glowing finish. Best applied with fingers, the thin and water-based texture blends effortlessly into skin for a seamless look and feel. 

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Le Teint Foundation

Available in 22 shades, the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Le Teint Foundation is part of the iconic Touche Eclat range offering brightening and light-reflecting benefits to the skin. Not only does this lightweight foundation provide radiance and luminosity, but it offers full-coverage for a flawless foundation base. Skin will be left looking glowing but natural all day long.

Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation

Matte finish foundations can feel heavy on the skin, but if you have an oilier complexion or just prefer the matte-look, you can still enjoy a weightless feel foundation with the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation. Effortlessly gliding onto skin, the new lightweight foundation from Bobbi Brown uses skin-true pigments suspended in an emollient gel base to reflect light and enhance the contours of the skin, for a natural but full coverage finish. The waterproof, sweat-proof, and humidity-resistant formula provides 16-hour coverage for the perfect weightless foundation. 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation

Whether it’s an eyeshadow palette or a concealer, the Naked Skin range from Urban Decay promises the most naturally-flattering formulas and the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation is no exception. Balancing luminosity, weightlessness, and coverage, the demi-matte foundation uses light-diffusing spheres to blur imperfections for an airbrushed finish. With buildable medium to full coverage, this beautiful foundation is available in 24 shades for all skin tones. 

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation


Offering maximum longevity, the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation not only lasts throughout the whole day with a sweat, humidity, water, and transfer-proof formula, but provides a weightless medium to full coverage finish. Perfect for oily skin types, this lightweight foundation leaves a matte but natural finish with a second-skin look and feel. 

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF15


Starting the trend of fluid foundations, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua has been a fan favorite for years and still rivals the newest of weightless foundation launches from competitors. Containing a blend of high-definition light pigments, the hyaluronic-acid infused foundation helps lock in moisture, leaving skin feeling hydrated and looking radiant. With additional SPF15, Vitalumiere Aqua blurs the lines between skincare and makeup while delivering an adjustable natural coverage.

What are your favorite full coverage weightless foundations?
