Next generation serum foundations
Second skin win
If you eschew liquid foundation for two reasons — the thick texture is too heavy for Singapore's climate and it's too troublesome to apply — you may soon run out of excuses altogether.
A quiet revolution has happened in the world of foundation, starting with Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Foundation in 2012. Back then, there was nothing like Maestro's texture. Although not the first brand to boast of a serum texture, the scientists behind this trend-starting foundation began experimenting with either oil or silicone-based emulsions that left behind a fine layer of pigment on the skin and a light, velvety finish. Coverage without the heavy feel? A foundation you could apply with just your fingers? We were sold!
Fast forward to 2015: more and more beauty brands have hopped on board and are changing the way women view and use liquid foundations...one face at a time.
THE BACKSTAGE SKIN SAVIOUR
Diorskin Nude Air Sérum, $88
This has fantastic buildable coverage. Try one layer for a sheer finish and two or more for a polished look. It is also used by star makeup artist Peter Philips on models for Dior's runway shows.
FOR ANY BUDGET
Sephora Teint Infusion Ethereal Natural Finish Foundation, $32
Feels like nothing on the skin and comes in a large variety of shades. Buy more than one to create your perfect bespoke shade.
Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation, $89
There's a reason there was a 12,000 person waitlist in England before its launch. It instantly mattifies combination skin and imbues skin with a radiant glow.
