What is Lightform Extended Hydration Foundation? 

While some radiant foundations are all surface-level, Lightform works hard to actively improve your skin and reveal the natural radiance that was there all along. Not only is it weightless with a buildable medium coverage, but it floats on and melts into the skin to
diffuse imperfections instantly for that second-skin look. Wanna get a little science-y? Lightform has a biomimetic HydroRelief Complex that hydrates for up to sixteen hours. The result is your skin, switched on—with a healthy-looking, hydrated, cared-for radiance that glows from within.

How do I apply this foundation if I have oily skin? 

Because Lightform is so hydrating and radiant, you might want to take your skin type into account. If your skin type is on the oily side, apply a thin layer to areas where you would want that added glow – such as the high points of your cheeks. Blend out into the skin using the Morphe M101 Lightform Dual-Ended Complexion Brush, expertly designed to build coverage, buff away imperfections, and blend hard-to-reach areas. Then choose a Bake & Set Soft Focus Setting Powder to boost radiance where you want it and mattify and blot away excess oil from the places you don’t want it. Use
the Vegan Pro Series Powder Puff to press the powder into the under eyes, chin, and forehead, then brush away with a fluffy brush. The result? Flawless radiance without the unwanted sheen.

How do I apply this foundation if I have dry or combination skin?

If your skin type tends to be dry or more combination, then Lightform might be the answer you’ve been looking for. It’s skin-improving formula will help your barrier function and hydration so the glow will keep going. Apply as you would any foundation – we love the Morphe M101 Lightform Dual-Ended Complexion Brush because it this synthetic brush was designed specifically to elevate this foundation formula, building coverage and making it easy to blend small areas like around the corners of your nose. You can also bake and set your complexion using the Bake & Set Soft Focus Setting Powder but it might not be as needed given your skin type.

How should I set my complexion after applying foundation?

Once your complexion steps are finished, you can set all your hard work in a variety of ways thanks to Morphe’s cult icon setting sprays and mists. Boost the skincare benefits with the Prep & Set Mist+ that’s amped up with ceramides, electrolytes, and antioxidants. If you have oilier skin, you might want to even out the glow with our Mattifying Setting Spray or if your skin is dry, amplify the radiance with our Luminous Setting Spray. Regardless of which you choose, that look is staying put until you take it off.
