Summer is here! You know what that means! Vacations, BBQ's, pool days and outside activities in the sun. Summer rays sometimes can be a little cruel to your glam. You don't want a melting face do you? Well, I have compiled a list of foundations drug store and high end alike that you need in your kit that are water-proof, long-wear, and summer proof. Click the picture of the foundation for direct links to purchase. Happy Shopping!!
Maybelline Fit Me- Matte/Poreless Foundation
Maybelline Fit Me foundations are really good for the summer time for all skin types and year round for oily skin types. It has a natural finish, and conceals pores instead of accentuating them. This isn't water-proof so I wouldn't go for a dip with this on, but it is matte so you get a good 8 hours of wear. For 8 bucks it's relatively a steal
MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation
Pro Longwear Foundation is literally LIFE. I love this year round (I'm an oily girl). This is a 24 hour foundation (yes, I have tried it and it is. Although I don't recommend you sleeping in make-up overnight if you value how your skin looks). This is a good one for going swimming or any water activities or a day when it is MAD hot outside since it is water-proof (meaning sweat proof also).
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15
Amazonian Clay is another summer must have! It is oil free, yet still moisturizing. This one is one to grab if you plan on being outside in the sun for extended periods of time (picnics etc.) since it gives a matte finish, but it has SPF 15 in it to protect you from those harmful sun rays!
MAKE UP FOR EVER- Face & Body Liquid Makeup Foundation
Make-up Forever Face & Body Liquid Foundation is great for those that don't care to have a "cake-face" but want something light but still with coverage. This is a oil-free, water based foundation. It is medium (yet buildable) coverage. EXTREMELY light weight with a satin finish. This is perfect for days out, and you can also apply this to parts of the body (bye, bye back-ne scars and hello halter tops!).
