While cushion eyeliner has already made a splash as a rising Korean makeup trend, the latest beauty innovation also draws its inspiration from Korea. Known as cushion foundation, the newest makeup trend involves sponges which are pressed into a lightweight foundation. These sponges are placed inside tiny compacts, and are said to encourage a gorgeous complexion.

Although a cushion formula can be ideal for minimal, natural-looking coverage, it can also offer a buildable effect. The sponge can be pressed multiple times to use more of the product, while a single push will lead to a barely-there look.
With many cushion formulas being sold in convenient pocket-friendly sizes, this new foundation innovation is also appropriate for travel. If you’re a jet-setting beauty addict, cushion foundation can accompany you on your myriad adventures. The product can also allow for a quick beauty touch-up during a hectic workday packed with meetings and events.
While it will surely take time for cushion foundations to become a new makeup bag must-have, they are quickly making a splash. As you restock your beauty buys for the season ahead, the newest spin on a foundation compact may be a product to consider.
