The Best Lightweight Foundations to Glow Through Summer

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Here now, the very Best In Beauty: Cosmetics, skin care, nail polish, and more tiny miracles personally vetted and loved by our editors.


First up in our brand new beauty series is the topic of summer-approved skin coverage. We're talking about the lightweight foundations, tinted moisturizers, BB creams, and other SPF-laden wonder products that help you put your best face forward without being bogged down by heavy layers of makeup. After the jump, our editors share their personal favorites, including powders, compacts, liquids, and even a fancy Dior spray.
