Light. As. A. Feather. Reach for these lightweight foundations when it’s hot, humid and you can’t stand the idea of applying anything on your face. They feel and look like your own skin — and according to beauty reviews, some of the best face makeup in Singapore!
Clinique Super City Block BB Cushion Compact
Liquid perfection and protection! This light formula feels weightless on your skin, but it shields you from all sorts of skin damage: UV rays, city pollution, and environmental aggressors. It works on all skin types and won’t irritate even the most sensitive skin. “It’s pricier than Korean BB cushion compacts but for me it’s worth every cent,” says a Singapore beauty review.
DiorSnow Brightening Tinted Fluid Colour Correction
It feels like skin, looks like skin, and improves your skin! This new foundation makeup has SPF 50/PA++++ and eidelweiss extract to fade discoloration and spots caused by sun exposure. It puts such a premium on improving skin that Dior calls it ” the first fresh liquid color care”.
This is a great foundation if you just want a light, super natural glow. The special microencapsulated mineral pigments look like your skin — if you had 12 hours of sleep and zero blemishes. We just wish it came in more skin tones: now, it has just two shades (light and medium).
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream
What can this foundation not do? It’s got SPF 40 and has really good coverage. “This product is ridiculous. Not only did it last a full 12 hours, OUTSIDE, in Singapore, during the day, but it the way it delivers a look that is both natural AND hides my blemishes!”” says a Sephora review.
Also a big plus: it comes in a wide shade range. “I always get disappointed when I read about best face makeup in Singapore and it turns out it only caters to fair skin tones,” says Rowie. “This is one of the few BB/CC creams that has a match for my dark skin.”
But it is thick, so we suggest adding some serum into it (for extra skin benefits) to sheer it out. Apply with a damp sponge, especially if you have fine lines or dry skin.
3CE Back to Baby
Get the smooth, soft and dewy look of baby skin! Women love how this BB cream gives such a natural, translucent and glowing finish. The secret is in the ingredients: it has crystal water, diamond powder, and pearl powder.
“I tried a lot of BB creams but I think this is my favourite. It doesn’t feel sticky or make me oily in the middle of the day!” says a beauty review. It’s also just $29 — half the price of some of the foundations. In terms of value for money, this is one of the best face makeup in Singapore.
Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation
Beauty editors swear by Charlotte Tilbury’s Light Wonder Foundation. It’s light, buildable for more coverage, smooths out imperfections and pores, and makes your skin look healthy and fresh. And thanks to the special pseudo ceramides, your skin stays hydrated for up to 18 hours.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to order this from an online makeup store, but once you find it get it! Many UK models say this is their everyday makeup: “It’s light as air, and gives such a natural glow.”
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
Long before it became trendy for brands to sell foundation and makeup with skincare benefits, there was Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. It was the ultimate multitasker: a moisturizer/sunscreen that evened out your skin tone, which you could use on its own or as a primer.
While there are tons of BB creams, CC creams and foundations that make the same claim, Laura Mercier still wows us for being tried, tested and loved by generations. “My mom used it, I use it, and I introduce it to all my cousins and friends too!” says Jill. “I like trying new products but I will always have a tube of this in my makeup kit. For me, it’s one of the best face makeup in SIngapore.”
Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless
This is proof that you can still buy the best face makeup in Singapore on a budget. The liquid consistency is super easy to apply and blend, so you can go super sheer and super light. The matte finish is perfect for very oily skin — and yes, it hides pores and light acne marks! And can we just say that we looooove the extensive shade range? Yay for affordable beauty brands who embrace all skin tones!
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation
This feels as light as a tinted moisturizer, but gives the coverage and luminous finish of a foundation. It blurs out imperfections and gives such a natural glow, too. “I feel like this makes me look like an Instagram filter. No other product has done this for me before!” says one beauty review. It’s not cheap, but a lot of women swear it’s worth the splurge — and not just because of the Chanel logo. “It’s one of the best face makeup in Singapore. Try it at least once!” gushes a fan.
Laneige BB Cushion
This popular BB cream brightens, moisturizes and has one of the highest sun protection among foundation makeup: SPF 50 / PA+++. It’s got enough coverage to hide blemishes, and is sweatproof and water proof! ” This product has a light coverage and a natural finish. Very good for a no makeup makeup day and the compact makes it easy for touch ups. I use a lighter shade for a more brightening effect!” says a Sephora Singapore review.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Skin Perfector
Need a lightweight foundation that still gives really good coverage? This is for you: it blurs imperfections, hides blemishes, and has been tested under cameras to prove that it looks natural in all light conditions. Whether you’re in the office, walking outdoors, or taking pics, you will look amazing.
“I can’t live without this foundation. It makes my skin look so good, and it looks just as fresh in the middle of the day!” says a beauty review.
