It’s not hard to find an amazing full-coverage, cake-face foundation. What is hard is finding sheer foundation that covers just enough to smooth out your skin without obscuring your natural glow. 

There are really exceptional foundations with light coverage, though. And the top lightweight foundations do more than cover imperfections. They nourish and moisturize, balance skin tone, and even offer sun protection. From BB creams to CC creams to tinted moisturizers and buildable foundation formulas, the sheer-coverage products you need in your glow-getting arsenal are all here.

Honestly, the name says it all. Grab a tube of this IT Cosmetics must-have if you want your skin to look like your skin but better! Buy it for $29.99.
