They're totally worth the splurge.

If you’ve always been on the lookout for bases that will leave your skin glowing and dewy, then you already know that the good ones are a little hard to come by. Sure, matte finish foundations are great for long days and special events, but on the daily, it’s just so much nicer to keep the skin looking fresh and radiant.

Here, we rounded up 10 luxurious foundations with dewy finishes that are worth investing in:

1. It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF 50

A thin layer of this color-correcting base can instantly boost your skin's radiance—it will have people asking what you did to your skin to get that glow! It comes in seven different shades, and each shade should adapt to different skin tones. Apply it using a dense synthetic-haired brush for an even and smooth application.

2. Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation

This foundation is on its way to cult-favorite status with its huge following in the beauty community worldwide. Formulated with different vitamins to give your skin a healthy glow (it literally has the word "healthy" in its name!), this foundation is your best bet if you're looking for a base that will blur out blemishes, even out skin tone, and leave your skin moisturized the whole day.

3. Tom Ford Traceless Foundation SPF 15

If we're talking about luxury foundations, then this is as luxurious as it could get. This foundation's beautiful formula instantly grants your skin that "lit-from-within" look that we always hear about. Tom Ford encourages using their foundation brush to apply this foundation, but using a damp sponge can yield to fresh-looking skin as well.

4. MAC Studio Waterweight SPF30 Foundation

If you have dry skin, you definitely have to try this ultra-hydrating foundation. It leaves your complexion luminous while providing it with sheer to medium coverage. It's also extremely lightweight, so you don't have to worry about your foundation smearing off in the heat. Tip: The concealer version of this foundation works very well if you have a relatively dry undereye area!

6. Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation

Trust the Japanese when it comes to skin-loving makeup. Bring out your skin's glow with this "featherweight" foundation that offers medium coverage. If you're very conscious about the ingredients in your beauty products, good news—this one's paraben-free.

7. Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF30

Fans of the original Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation will love this lighter version—perfect for daily wear, or whenever you just want to even out your skin tone sans a full coverage base. It's a little easier to blend than the original foundation formula because it's more lightweight and more watery. Bonus: It also has SPF30 for added sun protection!

Score radiant skin by smoothing on this luminous foundation. It's also formulated with skincare ingredients that can brighten dark spots and control redness.
