The next time you load up your makeup bag with your favorite foundations to wear on vacation, consider bringing along a cushion foundation compact — you'll want to thank us later. If you aren't already familiar with the K-Beauty trend staple, cushion foundations are usually characterized by a sponge that's soaked with liquid foundation and housed in a plastic container. The sponge, of course, is to be used as the foundation applicator.
The pros of using this type of foundation compact are plentiful: they're known for being lightweight and easy to apply with the soft applicator; it's perfect for natural-looking makeup as there are plenty of dewy cushion foundation formulas to try; many are refillable. Not only that, cushion foundations are one of the most travel-friendly makeup products. Meaning you don't have to worry about opening your carry-on to an explosion of makeup.
