Sappho Essential Liquid Foundation



The Award-winning Sappho Essential Foundation offers light to medium all-day buildable coverage leaving the skin feeling fresh, smooth and flawless. Its unique silicone and dimethicone free formulation feels weightless and allows the skin to breathe. Free of regular coconut oil, moisturizing and soothing with organic aloe vera juice, jojoba oil and shea butter, it is suitable for all skin types and a favorite for those with problematic breakouts. For sheer coverage, it is easily thinned with moisturizer.

Apply with your fingers, sponge, brush or our buffer brush for a smooth airbrushed-like finish. Build coverage as needed.

We love how this foundation feels and looks on skin. It does not feel mask-like and offers medium, smoothing coverage while still allowing skin to look natural. The way this foundation sits on skin allows people to see you and not your makeup, while providing a photography quality finish. The makeup artistry background of Sappho's founder shows in how the products apply.
