This week's edition of Makeup Wars asks, "What is my favorite summer foundation?"
This requires a lot of thought on my part. I love foundations and, right now, I have on my desk more than I can use in my lifetime. But when the weather is hot and humid, what works best?
I hate how quickly most liquid foundations break down with sweat. Some BB Creams are pretty spectacular as are their CC cream counterparts. Powder foundation can be great, provided it doesn't go chalky or worse, chunky, in the heat. It's hard for this never-satisfied blogger to pick just one.
I don't think I can. So instead, I'll give you my four favorite foundations to wear in the summer. They aren't in order of preference, but I do love them each.
For a seriously flawless skin, Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation doesn't move once it's applied. If you find yourself starting to shvitz, blot lightly and you'll still look perfect.
If you want a BB Cream, my go-to summertime option is Skin79 Super Plus BB. This is a true BB Cream and finding the right match for you is key. They have a handy guide on their site if you aren't sure which one is for you. It's called a Beblesh balm because someone already held the trademark on the word blemish in Korea. It's supposed to be spelled that way!
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Compact Makeup, SPF55, gives you serious sun protection, a lighter than air feeling and light to medium coverage. I was pleasantly surprised by how well this worked in the heat. I've been reaching for it more and more lately!
It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF50 CC Cream has some of the longest wear I've ever seen in a base. The key is to apply two thin layers. Once you've done that, this foundation feels incredibly light, looks flawless and stays the day. Plus is has an SPF of 50, in a NON-CHEMICAL formula. There is no whitish goop to contend with. Just long wear, a flawless face and amazing sun protection.
