For A Dewy Finish

Glow-boosting foundations can look too shiny after a while in high humidity, but not HERA’s Glow Lasting Cushion Foundation. A lightweight water-based formula, it utilises a Multi-Dimensions Radiant technology to imbue skin with moisture for a from-within glow, with translucent pigments and a Sheer Fitting Film technology ensuring optimal lustre. For a fluid option, there’s the Hollywood Flawless Filter from Charlotte Tilbury, which gives the dreamy aesthetics of ’50s Hollywood and is formulated with a lightweight, moisturising Glossy Oil that works to reflect light while keeping skin hydrated for up to 24 hours.

For A Natural-Looking Finish

Hitting all the right notes, Chantecaille’s Future Skin Cushion Skincare Foundation looks totally natural and feels completely weightless. The water-based cushion also has skin-loving ingredients such as bionymph peptide, which stimulates collagen synthesis, and botanical sugars, which help reduce pollutant adhesion on the skin. Favour a liquid formula? Reach for Gucci Beauty’s Fluide De Beauté Fini Naturel, which goes on like second skin for feather-light, breathable wear. It comes in 25 shades, so you’re assured of a colour match.
