Editors' Picks: The Best Hydrating Foundations on the Market

Gone are the days when the only options for face makeup are thick, chalky, and wholly uncomfortable to wear. Now, brands have begun to formulate their offerings around different skin types, concerns, and preferences. For those with dry skin (me), or even those who prefer a dewier finish (also me) or want their makeup to act like skincare (me again), there are a ton of options out there.

Below, we round up our favorite hydrating foundations, the ones that use hyaluronic acid in their formulas or create products with a water (rather than oil) base. They use antioxidants, argan oil, and other nourishing, moisturizing ingredients while still focusing on the look, feel, and effectiveness of the foundation. It's a whole new world when it comes to makeup, and we're here for it. Keep scrolling for foundations that give you a good glow.
