Makeup lovers know better than anyone that summer is not only a time for vacations and travel, it’s also a time for overdoing it in your makeup bag. After all, our face needs the same change of “clothes” as our body. It is more difficult to choose summer foundation that would not only give enough coverage, but would remain imperceptible on the skin, would not look like a heavy mask and would not clog pores. So TOP-Makeup.Info website in anticipation of the summer season decided to choose for you several options of lightweight foundations that will always help you look flawless (even in the sun).

Summer foundation: how should it be?

Top 6 best foundations for summer


Of course, the prefix “summer” is relative. It describes several special features of a cosmetic product that are important when choosing a product for the hot weather and the open sun.

There may be many reasons to wear makeup in summer. For example, for an evening date with your partner, for a bright summer festival, for a party on the beach, for a photo shoot on vacation, etc. So a summer foundation is worth choosing for everyone, because you never know where you will need to apply makeup.

The manufacturers of foundations rarely write “for summer” or “for winter” on the package, it considerably limits the audience. But you can do your own research on the product’s properties and see if you can wear it during the hot season. These include:

The weightless texture of the product;

  • Satin or wet sheen;
  • no fragrance;
  • non-comedogenic;
  • persistence;
  • SPF (at least 20);
  • medium or high covering power;
  • Caring components in the composition (a nice bonus).

It is also worth paying attention to the shade. You should not take too light a shade from the line, because frequent exposure to the sun will give you a slight tan (even if you use SPF). So it’s best to choose a foundation that is a tone or two darker than your natural skin tone.

Many people choose foundations with a matte finish for summer, thinking that they will help prevent greasy shine quickly. However, this is a mistake. Such foundations usually quickly clog pores, roll up and look unkempt in a few hours after application. It is better to choose something satin and complement your cosmetic bag with matte wipes.

How to choose and use a “summer” foundation

The change of seasons is not only a change of clothes, but also a change of cosmetics and care products. Makeup technique should also transform and meet all the needs of the skin in such a hot time.

No (even the most perfect) foundation will not sit well on the skin if you have not prepared it before applying makeup:

  • Remember about the “three pillars” of care: good cleansing, essential moisturizing, and deep nourishing. In the summertime, choose lightweight, fluid moisturizers that absorb quickly and don’t leave a sticky residue after application.
  • If you use a makeup base, it’s best to apply it with a damp sponge or fluffy brush. That way, you won’t overdo it and you won’t make your makeup look too heavy. The same goes for lightweight toners like BB and CC creams and fluids.
  • If you do not have a pronounced imperfection and imperfections on the skin, it is better to replace the foundation with a multifunctional BB and CC creams. They are ideal for the summer, when the skin is prone to the appearance of color nuances and pigmentation. Such products will “adjust” to the changing skin tone while looking natural on the face.
  • It is best to choose products with SPF when choosing tinting products for summer. It’s not the most important factor, but it’s an important one. If you wear makeup every day at work or during an evening stroll in the city, then SPF 20 may be enough. But if you spend a lot of time in the sun, even in the city, then do not forget that in addition to the foundation you will need to buy a face sanscreen with a higher factor of protection against UV radiation. For seaside vacations suit the toners, which have a sun protection factor of 30 and above.
  • Overloading your face with cosmetics in a hot season is not a good idea. If you are able to avoid foundation and use only powder and moisturizer with SPF, it’s wonderful. If there is no such possibility, then try to choose the thinnest and lightest toner possible. It is not necessary to choose thick products; if you have oily skin, it is better to give preference to products with a natural satin finish, which can be corrected during the day with matte wipes and light powder.

Now that you are familiar with the features of foundations for summer, here is a small selection of the best (in our humble opinion) options that are suitable for summer makeup.
