With the temperature heating up over the next few months, the last thing you want is a heavy foundation sliding across your face throughout the day. The warm summer months require much less make up, so whether you prefer a lighter BB cream or a little more coverage from a foundation, we’ve got you covered to help you find the best foundation for summer.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Foundation

The Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Foundation is the ideal summer foundation. The light-medium coverage has a naturally luminous finish to give your skin a healthy summer glow and the oil-free formula won’t slide around the skin in the heat. With SPF30 protection, your complexion will look flawless while remaining protected from harmful UV rays.

Illuminare Mattifying Mineral Foundation

The Illuminare Mattifying Mineral Foundation is the world’s first liquid mineral make up. It has a broad spectrum SPF20 protection to ensure your skin is protected from UVA and UVB rays, while the matte finish absorbs oil to keep your skin looking flawless throughout the day. This is the perfect foundation to take on holiday as it is highly water resistant and won’t rub off or sweat off- perfect those days at the beach when you want a little more coverage.

3LAB Perfect BB SPF40

The 3LAB Perfect BB cream is a sheer tinted moisturizer which contains broad spectrum SPF40 to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays and oxidative stress. Infused with 3LAB’s signature Bio-Engineered Renewal Complex and Apple Stem Cell Technology, the BB cream brightens and moisturizes the skin throughout the day, while reducing the appearance of age spots and blemishes, making it the perfect addition to any summer make up bag.

PUR Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid

If you’re looking for the best foundation for summer, then this may well be the product for you. The long-wearing formula is lightweight and oil-free and wont rub, smudge or fade throughout the day. Containing SPF15 protection and enriched with Ceretin Complex to hydrate the skin, the skin will look flawlessly radiant and while remaining protected from UV rays- you’ll have everybody on the beach asking you what your secret is.

Dermablend Smooth Liquid Foundation

If you’re not willing to sport a light coverage foundation for summer, the Dermablend Smooth Liquid Foundation is perfect for you. The medium coverage foundation provides exceptional coverage to conceal blemishes, uneven skin tone and dark circles and the incredibly long-wearing formula, will ensure your complexion is always looking flawless during the summer months. Budge proof, transfer resistant and breathable- this is the perfect medium coverage foundation for those warm summer months.

Primer & Setting Spray

A good primer and setting spray will give your foundation that extra bit of staying power to ensure it lasts all day long. The Colorescience Skin Brightening Face Primer will give your skin a flawless canvas for the application of foundation. It helps to hide and reduce skin redness, which often appears after too much sun exposure, while protecting against UV rays and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

To truly lock your foundation in place, the Dermablend Set + Refresh Long Lasting Setting Spray boasts an oil-free formula which helps to keep make up looking fresh and flawless all day.
