Summer is usually a tough season to handle. Not only is it hard on our wardrobe, it also takes a toll on our skin and hair. Needless to say that just like the fabric of your dresses, the makeup kit too needs a bit of transformation. And if you still haven’t figured the right foundation for summer, here’s some help. Take a look at these lightweight foundations for summers that are perfect for getting that photo-ready natural look in the sweltering months.
Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation
Dubbed as the ‘Holy Grail’ of foundations by women the world over, this product is your saviour for summer. It feels very light on the skin, stays on for long and can be applied very easily. This mist foundation leaves an airbrush-like finish, making you look runway ready. It’s great for oily and combination skin and doesn’t cause breakouts. Although it comes with a spray applicator, we recommend spreading it evenly across the face with a buffing brush.
Clinique Perfectly Real Liquid Foundation
Clinique’s Perfectly Real Liquid Foundation is almost like a BB cream or tinted moisturiser in texture that provides light coverage for hot summer days. It is great for all types of skin as it is very light and works perfectly for women who are looking to even out skin tones. It’s one of our highly recommended lightweight foundations for summers.
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h Liquid Foundation
This liquid foundation provides medium coverage and is waterproof and sweat-proof. With almost 2-3 touch ups in a day, it can last you from anywhere between 12-16 hours making it the ultimate day-to-night foundation. It has a dewy and natural matte finish and is packaged in with a plump applicator which restricts the amount you use. We recommend this product for dry skin and suggest you apply it with a sponge for best results.
Benefit Cosmetics ‘Hello Flawless!’ Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation
Suitable for normal skin type, this foundation provides medium coverage but feels very light on the skin making it a good product for summer. It is a little too light so fixing it with a compact powder is recommended to keep it in place, especially in the T-zone. This product is also slightly easier on the pocket and is amazing for people with a pale/yellowish skin tone.
These lightweight foundations for summers are sure to get you through the sticky, hot season easily but please do not forget to apply a sunscreen before starting your makeup regime.
