    2 / 10 Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion ($22.90)

    This lightweight cushion provides just the right amount of coverage without coming off too heavy. We usually opt for a base that gives us a natural, radiant finish, and Silkygirl’s Magic BB cushion does just that. Formulated with edelweiss extract and mineral water, it gives your complexion a soft, non-streaky finish. It also has oil-controlling properties so you don’t have to worry about it turning cakey after you perspire. Tip: Apply a thin layer and build it up slightly in areas that need more coverage. You want to give your skin as much breathing room as possible.
