8 Makeup Products That Make You Look Amazing And Feel Weightless

Let’s face it. A lot of makeup products are super heavy. But if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin like I do, most makeup products irritate your skin. My skin type, and the fact that I low-key loathe the feeling of heavy makeup on my face, has led me on one of my life’s many quests. Finding amazing lightweight makeup products. Here are 8 that I think make the grade.

1. Lightweight Foundation/Powder:

I know some people would say that face powder isn’t really foundation but it’s what I use, and yes it is super light. My favorite kind is Bareminerals original loose powder. It feels so much like nothing that I often forget I’m wearing it. No heaviness and very little transfer make this one a keeper for me. I prefer to use loose face powders instead of foundation because I have sensitive skin and freckles. Powder gives me a fresh, even look without covering up my freckles. So, I still look like myself but the best possible version.

2. Lightweight Setting Spray:

I have been looking for a setting spray for a long time. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but I still find that by the end of the day my makeup is not as bold as it was in the morning. I love products that are versatile, lightweight and easy to use. Bareminerals dew mist shimmering setting spray hits all of these checkpoints. It sets my makeup so my mascara doesn’t run when my eyes tear up from the cold New York breeze but still feels light enough to wear on a hot summer day. It also makes my skin shimmer slightly, hence “shimmering” in its name. I have even worn this spray without makeup as just a mist for my face and I looked so fresh for a chill Saturday. My skin also feels so soft and nourished with this product. I am beyond happy I tried it.

3. Lightweight Highlighting Lotion:

Again, as I am not somebody who wears a full face of makeup every day I typically don’t highlight or contour my face. But I do love a little extra sparkle and glow to my face when I feel like I look “one-dimensional” or if I think my skin looks “flat”. While I love using Bareminerals dew mist for my shimmer, some times I want even more nourishment for my face. Some days I want to actually feel the product seep into my skin yet still look fresh and feel light. So, I’ll use a lotion or “glotion” that has some shimmer in it. Loreal Lumi glotion makes my cheeks feel soft and fully hydrated. I’ll just use a little along my cheekbones and it works as a highlighter for me. I also feel like highlighting lotion brings out the best in one’s skin tone and complexion. Every time I see pictures of people with shimmering lotions on I think they look so fierce.

4. Lightweight Blush:

Everyone’s cheeks could use a little extra color. There’s nothing like rosy, colored cheeks in my opinion. However, with my sensitive skin, and being someone who already wears little makeup, a lot of times the last thing I want to do is put on another layer of something on my face. I always felt like with typical powder blushes I would either put on too little, and you couldn’t tell I was wearing anything, or I would put on too much and have big, pink circles on my cheeks. Glossier’s cloud paint blush seems like it is the answer to all of my problems. You just put a little on your finger and dab it across your cheeks, kind of like lotion, for that blushed look. The product also really does look and feels as soft as a cloud. The name is very fitting.

5. Lightweight Moisturizer:

When it comes to moisturizer I feel like everyone has a couple go to’s and some brands that they know work best for them and their skin. Everyone’s skin is different whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, the moisturizer that works for, and looks great, on your friend may not work for you. I still feel like moisturizing your face is an essential part of any beauty routine, especially in these dry and cold winters. So, try and find the perfect moisturizer that works for your skin type.
