Fact: you can be absolutely obsessed with a thick, rich moisturizer but also despise the way it layers under foundation at the same time. Maybe it just feels too heavy with foundation applied over it, or perhaps it is a tad too oily and causes your foundation to slip around or even pill.

Since moisturizer is a skin-care essential, especially in the winter, the solution might just be choosing a lighter or nongreasy formula that still doesn't skimp on hydration and layers well with makeup. (You don't want your foundation to flake or crack, either!)

If you're on the hunt for a different moisturizer to pair with your favorite makeup products, consider some of the lightweight, nongreasy, and fast-absorbing options ahead.
