There are tons of foundation types out there, from liquid to BB cream and two-way cakes. If you’re seeking an airy, smooth finish that appears effortlessly natural, a compact powder foundation is the way to go. While not as heavy as liquid formulas, but denser than loose powder, compact foundations are largely lightweight yet buildable, so you can achieve your desired coverage depending on how much you’d like to conceal.
Here are 7 best compact powder foundations in Singapore to give you a flawlessly smooth and seemingly “filtered” complexion.
