sheer makeup

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for sheer makeup.

Sheer makeup is a great way to cover up blemishes, dark circles under your eyes, and other imperfections. The main difference between sheer and full-coverage makeup is the amount of pigment in the products. Sheer makeup isn’t about covering everything up—it’s about blending away the imperfections to give you a natural look.
