The Best Dewy Skin Foundations

Let’s face it, we all wish we had perfectly glowing, dewy skin 24/7. But unfortunately for us, the sun isn’t often wall-to-wall and we’re more often than not fighting against some of our most persistent skincare woes. This is when a dewy foundation becomes your new best friend. Think healthy, hydrated and happy skin – that looks like skin. Perfectly lightweight for during the summer months, and super moisturising for when the weather turns colder. Got oily skin? Fear not – just control your oilier areas with powder and you too can embrace the dewy look. If you’re striving for that lit-from-within glow, then you’re going to want to read on and find your new fave foundation.
