These Multi-Tasking Foundations With SPF Are What You Need For The Harsh Summer Months
There is always one friend in our squad who is dangerously unprepared for the summer. She buys a broad spectrum cream two weeks late into summer, is constantly complaining about sun damage and spending too much on corrective products. In our opinion, this friend is committing one rookie mistake… stepping out in the sun in her regular makeup! Besides also living on the edge by dodging skin cancer.
Summer is here and sun protection is an absolute must. Use a broad spectrum SPF as a base or, if you like multi-tasking products use a foundation with SPF content in it. Replacing our usual foundations with the SPF infused variety does help with pore-clogging issues and is great for when we need to run out of the door. We rounded up some of our favourite picks of this season for all our sunny day makeup needs. Psst… they do not give you those pesky flashbacks from camera flashes as well!
On days we are up and about on our feet and have to spend long hours in the sun, just a simple SPF foundation won’t suffice. The Bobbi Brown weightless foundation minimises oil production, blocks sweat and keeps the pores clean. A 16-hour long stay and heavy coverage product, this beauty gives a poreless, shine-free natural matte skin finish, even in extreme heat! *adds to cart*
A medium coverage foundation with the added advantage of all-day hydration? Yes, please! The flawless Estee Lauder foundation range comes in eighteen shades and has a 24-hour stay capacity. The waterlight, fluid and long-wear makeup feels like a second skin on our face, almost like there’s nothing on! The fresh, natural, healthy and even-toned look is perfect for any tropical vacay. Or because let’s be realistic. Work.
We are always in for some zero parabens and phthalates goodness from Clinique products! This ultra-fluid and silky foundation controls excess oil yet hydrates the skin. The foundation contains broad spectrum SPF, which are best suited for women with sensitive skin in need of intense protection. With sheer-to-medium coverage and a natural matte finish, this is one wholesome product every makeup lover needs.
Apart from the super cute packaging, this little number from Benefit Cosmetics is a total winner because of its contents. Known to be uber lightweight, it evens out skin tone and blurs imperfections coz girl, those breakouts need some hiding. The foundation gives a light-to-medium coverage and comes in a handy size perfect to drop into our on-the-go makeup bag.
The only product on our list to stake the claim if being tested with a 4k camera, this perfector from Make Up For Ever is a constant on our wishlist. The foundation clears out any and all irregularities of the skin to make way for a light and radiant look. With SPF 25 PA++, the formula gives heavy protection and an enhanced complexion.What’s not to love?
