Trying to find a foundation that doesn’t feel like a foundation? You are not alone. 

We all want it: flawless coverage without the feeling of being, well, covered. But silky, lightweight foundations can be hard to find. If you’re anything like us, you’ve tried them all – liquids, powders, creams, sticks, BBs, CCs – but you’re still looking for the perfect one.

Will I ever find a foundation that makes me feel fresh faced and paparazzi perfect? You’ve begun to wonder.

The answer is: you will.

Because no one should have to go through life weighed down by their makeup, we hit the David Jones beauty floor in search of the crème de la crème of light-weight coverage.
