As summer quickly approaches us, we need to learn what kind of makeup is proper to wear. Tinted moisturizers, BB/CC creams, and powders are great if you don’t want a lot of makeup on your face, but they often don’t give enough coverage.

During the spring and summer months, your skin will usually be at its oiliest state.
For summer you will need long-lasting foundations and concealers that can withstand the heat, humidity and even sweat.

Here are 6 of the best foundations to wear in the summer that will give you coverage but feel like you’re wearing nothing.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

It’s hard to decide what I love best about this liquid foundation: the anti-aging formula that’s loaded with skin-care ingredients or the airy texture and flawless finish. For those who don’t want to look matte but also don’t love added luminosity, this strikes just the right balance between the two. Plus, the shade offerings aren’t only variations of light, medium, and dark; they have different undertones, making it easy to find a color that truly matches your skin. This product lasts all day on my oily skin.

Covergirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation

This is the lightest foundation I’ve discovered. It feels like water on your skin but offers an incredible amount of pigment, so just a few drops will give your complexion a flawless, radiant finish. This foundation provides a fresh, natural look that lasts through the heat, humidity, and non-stop activity.

This makeup product provides the perfect matte coverage while letting your natural glow seep through. Plus, it comes in many shades and has a water-resistant coverage.

I always have problems trying to find a perfect match, but this is brilliant. If you want lightweight, hydrating, melt-proof coverage with SPF this summer, I recommend you to try these Covergirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1.

Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation

This foundation is perfect for the ladies who are always on the go. Bobbi Brown’s stick foundation comes in a variety of shades and provides excellent coverage for hyper-pigmentation. Plus, this foundation contains oil-controlling minerals to combat sweat, water, and humidity.

Skin Foundation Stick is also suitable for those with sensitive skin, including those with rosacea.

Clinique Even Better Foundation

Clinique Even Better Foundation is ideal for the ladies who love a good, matte finish. This foundation absorbs shine and resists sweat, which is a great thing. The fact it has SPF 15 is just helpful too.

If you are not happy with the foundations that you are using, then you should give Clinique Even Better foundation a try. This product has a lot of shades – more than 20, ranging from the lightest to the darkest, so you would be easily able to find your match from such a tone spectrum. The product has been dermatologist tested, which means it is safe even for sensitive skin and also oil free which means it would not grease up your face.

Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer

I love Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer for summer months. It’s lightweight, has buildable coverage, and is known to be ideal for sensitive skin or skin that’s prone to breakouts. I add it to my tinted moisturizer to even out my skin tone while still looking natural. I recommend this product because any redness is neutralized and if any discoloration exists this foundation corrects it.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h Foundation

This foundation is perfect for those who have sensitive skin because it’s noncomedogenic, oil-free and dermatologist tested. For someone who needs more coverage with a foundation that can go on sheer and build to complete coverage, Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation is perfect. It has SPF 15, and this is a good thing. When I use it, my face looks flawless!

The biggest positive of this product is its longevity: literally from morning until night, with no, if not minimal, touch-ups. Not entirely sure though if it would actually last for 24 hours, as I don’t wear foundation for that long. However, 15+ hours is an excellent wear time in my opinion, especially in summer time.

Many of us choose to skip foundation during the summer. But let’s be honest: We don’t always have beautiful skin, and sometimes a little foundation can save everything.

I hope you find this article useful and please let me know if you have tried these foundations.
