Summertime is already upon us and with it comes the need to seek out waterproof foundation. Sure it’s going to be a little more expensive but it sure beats having it melt and run down your face every single time you sweat or come into contact with sunlight. You can’t stay indoors all summer like a vampire, and you can’t walk around without looking great, so what are you going to do? Let’s take a quick look at some of the most popular waterproof foundations that will stand up to anything from sweat to a blast of water from a nearby hose.
Nars All Day Luminous Powder Foundation
This one is from Sephora’s website and you can imagine it’s pretty expensive, but it definitely comes with a few benefits. First of all, it’s a foundation rated at SPF 24 which helps to protect you against the sun’s harmful UV rays. The product comes as either a liquid or powder foundation and there are many who would advise against getting the liquid for hot days. The powder is a bit lighter and gives your skin even more radiance. Like we said, it’s a little expensive but on those hot days it really does pay for itself many times over.
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick
There is a bit of a drawback to this one in that it’s a stick rather than a cream or a powder but on the upside that means it’s going to be absolutely perfect for touchups. It has many benefits of course, the main one being that it contains oil controlling minerals designed to combat sweat along with both water and humidity. If you find that you’re on the go a lot, then this might just be the best option that you could ask for. It’s quick, it’s easy, and most importantly, it’s a waterproof solution for the coming summer days.
Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour
This is a long wear foundation that lasts for a full 15 hours while remaining completely waterproof. It is bout sweat proof and transfer proof, meaning it’s not going to come off easily regardless of the circumstances. It’s a great solution if you’re going to be spending a lot of time outdoors this summer, and it’s Sephora product, which we all know is synonymous with high quality.
Mac Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foudnation
The last product we’re going to discuss is probably the cheaper of the four but still very effective. The best part about this is the length of coverage it provides. Unlike many other waterproof makeup it is capable of furnishing 24 hour coverage, and it can be used for spot treatments if you need don’t’ want to go all out. Sometimes you don’t wear a full face of makeup and this product can definitely help to facilitate that.
These are just a few great products on the market and you’re sure to find a good many more if you look hard enough. For your makeup, summertime is no joke – make sure you and your looks are properly protected.
