If you’re the type of girl who’s always on the lookout for bases that will leave your skin glowing and dewy, then you’ll know that the good ones are a little hard to come by. Sure, matte finish foundations are great for long days and special events, but for most days, it’s just so much nicer to keep the skin looking fresh and radiant. Here, we rounded up 10 luxurious foundations with dewy finishes that are worth investing in:
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF 50

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation SPF 15
If we’re talking about luxury foundations, then this is as luxurious as it could get. This foundation’s beautiful formula instantly grants your skin that “lit-from-within” look that we always hear about. Tom Ford encourages using their foundation brush to apply this foundation, but bouncing it on the skin using a damp sponge can yield to fresh-looking skin as well.
