Best Summer Foundations



The summer heat is wonderful until you feel your makeup melting off your face. Luckily, there are so many solutions to this problem, none of which involve compromising your makeup routine. Now that summer is (almost) officially in season, throw on a foundation that won’t budge no matter the temperature.

These are the six must-have foundations for the season:

1. CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous Pressed Powder: It’s oil-free, it’s light and it’s easy. If a pressed powder is your style then this is perfect for you. It’s a full-coverage option that won’t weigh you down. Can be found at, or in any drugstore; $7.90


2. L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream: It goes on in one move and does four different things (hydrates, primes, perfects, corrects), almost like magic. The full-coverage finish leaves your skin even-toned and silky smooth. Can be found at, or in any drugstore; $10.95


3. Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation: The Naked line isn’t just for eyeshadow pallets. The Naked Skin pressed powder lasts all day long and works wet and dry. It finishes demi-matte and so light your face will almost feel makeup-free. Can be found at, or at Sephora or Ulta.; $36


4. Benefit Big Easy: More than a BB cream, it’s a “multi-balacing complexion perfector.” It goes on as a liquid and quickly dries to feel like a powder. Can be found at, or at Sephora; $38
