Summer is coming fast, and if you live in a warm place as I do, summer is here. It is already the time of the year where my makeup isn’t staying put all day, my scalp is a sweaty mess and I am LAYERING on the sunscreen. At this point of the year, you have probably already put your winter clothes away but have you purchased your summer foundation?
When it comes to summer skin, usually less is more. There are clearly lots of time when a full coverage foundation is needed but isn’t it nice to sometimes just put on a nice CC cream?
It’s safe to say that we all have the same goal with our foundation; flawless skin, look 10 years younger and make sure it lasts all day long. I mean, that doesn’t seem like too much to ask, does it? My biggest pet peeve is when I start my day with a flawless face and by lunch, my make up is gone.
When looking for a new foundation, there are so many options it can be quite daunting. From high end to drugstore, the amount of summer foundations available is endless. Who has unlimited hours, and money to spend trying to find the best options when it comes to sweat-proof summer foundations? Good news, I have put in the leg work and have found the best summer foundations for all skin types.
Now let’s get down to the best summer foundations
IT Cosmetics CC Cream – I could start and stop this list right here. The holy grail of summer foundation. Not only is it lightweight, high SPF but it also comes in both a matte and illuminating version.
Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation – Did you think I would make a list about foundation and not included my absolute favorite? no way! This is the best option if you have an important event and want a full coverage foundation. It is 24 hour sweatproof and has some serious staying power. If you are looking for a dupe of this, you can find my list here.
Tarte Rainforest Of the Sea Foundation – This full coverage formula is very hydrating and has a light sunscreen to keep you protected all day long. In addition to that, it is also a super buildable foundation.
Kat Von D Lock It Foundation – This product will last ALL DAY LONG. This product is waterproof so a little sweat won’t affect your full face of makeup. This is a super matte formula so it is best for those of you with skin on the oilier side.
Urban Decay Naked Skin – This is the foundation that I wore to my wedding reception two summers ago. It is such a nice demi-matte foundation that can last through anything, even a little rain on your wedding day.
Milk Sunshine Skin Tint – I am always drawn to Milk products because of their super cute packaging and ease of use. This product has SPF 30, super hydrating and a super easy application. It’s perfect for casual summer days. This formula works best on skin on the drier side.
Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Cream – This list wouldn’t be complete without one BB cream. This comes in 20 shades, SPF 20, has buildable coverage, natural looking finish and leaves you with the most flawless complexion. Everyone needs this BB cream in their summer makeup bag!
So who else is ready to put their best face forward this summer? If you are blessed with super dry skin (like myself), make sure to read my best foundations for dry skin post. Do you have a summer foundation that you love? Leave it in the comments!
