This type of foundation is also known as the whipped foundation; it’s a hybrid of a liquid and cream formula. It is slightly thicker in consistency than liquid foundation, but is airy and super lightweight. It usually comes in a pot or tube and is perfect for anyone looking for full coverage, minus the cakey look. While mousse foundations are great for all skin types, it benefits oily skin the most as it makes the skin feel non-greasy.

A great example of this type of foundation is the Lakme 9 To 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation. The lightweight texture blends seamlessly into the skin, covering all imperfections and giving a beautiful matte finish.

How to apply?

Step 01: Depending on the type of coverage you want, apply as many or little dots of foundation on your face using clean fingers.

Step 02: Take a small foundation brush or beauty sponge to buff the mousse foundation into your skin. The process is similar to that of your liquid or cream foundation.

Step 03: After blending the foundation, if you wish to soften the look, take a damp makeup sponge and lightly press it on your skin. This will eliminate harsh lines and brush strokes, if any, to give you a smooth and even-toned look.
