We're all about embracing the skin you're in — but sometimes it's fun to play around with Instagram filters that smooth and blur lines and marks. You can get a similar effect IRL with serum foundations. These makeup-skin care hybrids are lightweight, making them a great option for everyday use, especially during summer when heavy foundation is a no-go.
They do a stellar job at creating a filter-like effect on skin and even provide skin care benefits, like brightening and evening out skin. Without further ado, here are our favorite serum foundations for a glowing complexion.
