In the beauty world, Korea is light years ahead when it comes to ingredients and innovation. Known for unique formulations and skin-friendly products, the country has brought us a laundry list of our all-time favorite skincare staples, including sheet masks, bb creams, essences, sleeping packs, and more. But now, it’s time to give the country’s makeup must-haves the floor; specifically its foundations.
While American brands are all about matte finishes, Korean foundations lean more natural and are packed with skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, botanicals, and broad-spectrum SPF to nourish, hydrate, and protect the skin while creating a flawless, fresh canvas. Since it can be hard to find these K-beauty formulas in the U.S., we created a list of our favorites for you to shop now. From radiant cushion compacts to natural matte fluids, here are the best Korean foundations to add to your makeup routine.
