So refreshing!

Gel formulas aren't only amazing as skincare products; they're perfect for oily skin even in the form of makeup. Unlike heavy creams, gel-based cosmetics hydrate the complexion without leaving a greasy film. Not only that, using a gel foundation with a gel moisturizer will make blending your makeup so much easier.

SHISEIDO Synchro Tinted Gel Cream SPF30, P2250, SM Beauty

This gel cream works well as a foundation for days when you need minimal coverage. Its skincare-infused formula will give your skin a natural glow!


MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation, price unavailable, SM Makati

Achieve medium to full coverage without piling on too much product. It has a satin finish that you can easily tone down with powder when it's extra humid outside!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Water Blend Foundation, P2700, SM Megamall

With its sheer coverage and water-gel texture, you'll forget that you're even wearing foundation.

IMAGE Lioele

LIOELE Secret Pore Bright Gel Foundation, P550, Beautymnl

Here's a creamy gel that makes the skin appear smoother with every layer. It also has skin-brightening ingredients in case you're battling some dark spots underneath.


PIXI H20 Skin Tint, P1250, SM Makati

If it's light yet longwearing coverage you need, blend a few pumps of this cooling formula over minor imperfections.

IMAGE Maybelline

MAYBELLINE Dream Velvet Matte Foundation, P499, Watsons

Being hydrating is probably the last thing we'd expect from a matte foundation, but this one feels like velvet on the skin and won't leave you dry.
