Should I wear foundation in the summer?

If you sweat alot in the summer, or feel traditional foundation clogs your pores or increases your break outs then stay from your go-to full coverage foundation.  Instead, Try taking some of your foundation and mixing it with your favorite moisturizer for a more sheer coverage.

Also try applying sunscreen first, then blending a thin layer of foundation on top using your fingers.  Using your fingers to blend any product will help spread and sheer out the coverage.

What can I wear instead of foundation in the summer?

Great alternatives to foundation include: Tinted moisturizers (Bare Minerals – Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30), BB Creams (Smashbox – Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35), CC Creams (IT Cosmetics – CC+ Cream with SPF 50+), and products specially formulated to give sheer to light coverage(MAC Cosmetics – Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation).

  1. Switch from an oil based to gel based moisturizer
  2. Use a mattifying primer, foundation and setting spray
