Many viral trends on the internet eventually die down but that’s not the case for glowing skin and makeup. As a matter of fact, people are still trying to debunk tips and tricks to radiant, healthy-looking skin. 

Besides foundation, there are many other ways to achieve the highly coveted radiance such as facial oils, strobe creams, and luminizer drops, just to name a few. Thankfully, brands have been releasing foundations that solely moisturises and illuminate the skin as well as offer enough coverage.

Now that you know how they work, here’s a list of the best dewy foundation for your skin type: 

1. Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation

Best dewy glow foundation

Price from RM190.00

shopping_cart Hermo Malaysia RM190.00

Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation is formulated with their signature Gloss Film Powder which has light-diffusing minerals to brighten and minimise pores while resisting sweat and oiliness. This breathable serum foundation has buildable coverage and more importantly, it gives your skin the same youthful glow you experience after a facial.

2. Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation

Best dewy full coverage and long lasting foundation - suitable for oily skin

Price from RM188.00

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation is a household name to almost everyone who wears makeup. It’s essentially created for the showbiz and even on 4K high-resolution camera, so you’re promised flawless yet healthy-looking skin. Besides, it has buildable coverage and amazing staying power with a semi-matte-satin finish that’s suitable for oily skin.

Cushion foundation normally delivers a beautiful glow to the skin because it’s fundamentally invented as a skincare-makeup that’s packaged in a compact for an effortless application. Since the Glow Tone Up Foundation Cushion Compact is more of a complexion enhancer with sun protection of SPF40, coverage is more on the lighter side. However, it’ll give your skin the almost-wet-look unquestionably. 

4. Tarte Water Foundation

Best dewy foundation for mature skin

Price from RM154.00

For mature and often dehydrated skin, Tarte’s Water Foundation is your best choice. It doesn’t only contain 20% of water but it’s also powered by its proprietary antioxidant-packed Rainforest of the Sea Complex. What it does is provide the essential nourishment to your skin, especially for ageing skin. In addition, the Water Foundation comes in a total shade of 21 but there’s really no fuss about picking the exact colour as your skin due to its light consistency.

5. MAC Cosmetics Naturally Flawless Foundation

Best dewy foundation for combination skin

Price from RM194.00

MAC’s Naturally Flawless Foundation is basically a multi-tasking foundation that works as a skin moisturiser, skin treatment, sunscreen, and of course, a foundation. It has a lightweight hydrating formula with a slightly creamier texture and best of all, it’s suitable for all skin types. Although it promises instant hydration, this foundation is also capable of controlling oil on your combination skin where some parts are oilier than the other.

6. HOURGLASS Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint

Best dewy foundation for dry skin

Price from RM264.00

Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint is a medium-to-full coverage foundation that smoothens out fine lines and wrinkles. Also, it has a thick, whipped consistency but it’s only because it’s infused with Hourglass’ Hyaluronan Complex, an advanced form of hyaluronic acid that helps plump up the skin. It even contains pearlescent pigments for the added luminous glow.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation is a light coverage gel foundation that provides a natural, radiant finish lasting up to 16 hours. On top of that, it’s formulated with a good mix of vitamin-rich ingredients namely Litchi, Pomegranate, and Goji extracts that’ll revive your complexion in an instant.
