With a new season upon us it’s time to think about summer makeup looks, and you may be wondering, what’s the best foundation for summer? There’s no one correct answer to this question, and the ideal way to narrow down the options is to start your search based on your skin type. The good news is, we’ve done the work for you and it’s never been easier to find your dream summer foundation for oily skin, dry skin, combination skin or normal skin—and we’ve also thrown in some useful tips and pointers as well!
Summer foundation for oily skin and combination skin
The goal when it comes to summer makeup products for this skin type is a fresh-faced complexion that stands up to heat and humidity without getting shiny—and any summer foundation for oily skin should be oil-free and non-comedogenic. Fortunately, Dermablend has several foundations with SPF to choose from depending on your preferred texture and desired level of coverage.
Continuous Correction™ CC Cream SPF 50+: For a one-step summer foundation for oily skin that delivers full coverage, a high level of broad-spectrum UV protection and more radiant-looking skin with ongoing use, look no further. This supercharged formula combines the benefits of a potent skincare treatment along with full complexion coverage that lasts for up to 24 hours without clogging pores.
The SPF 50+ Longwear Matte Pack: Featuring all of the summer makeup products you need to prime, protect, perfect and set, this bundle is the secret for long-lasting, shine-free coverage. Start with the Poresaver™ Matte Makeup Primer for non-drying oil absorption, get complexion coverage, correction and broad-spectrum sun protection with Continuous Correction™ CC Cream SPF 50+, and ensure your summer makeup look stays put with our weightless, translucent Loose Setting Powder.
Smooth Liquid Camo Hydrating Foundation: This hydrating, buildable medium- to full-coverage foundation serves up a velvety-smooth complexion. You also get 24-hour hydration plus broad-spectrum, mineral-based SPF 25 with titanium dioxide along with up to 16 hours of long-lasting, smudge- and transfer-resistant wear when you set your makeup with our Loose Setting Powder.
Summer foundation for dry skin and normal skin
Makeup looks for summer should have two things in common: Built-in sun protection thanks to foundations with SPF and glowing, radiant skin. We’ve taken the guesswork out of achieving both of these goals with comprehensive kits that include all the products you need for priming, coverage and a long-lasting finish.
The Sun-Safe Radiance Routine: With this bundle of summer makeup products (that will serve you well year-round), you’re three steps away from glowing, healthy-looking skin. Our Insta-Grip™ Jelly Primer provides an instant surge of hydration and a smoothing, tightening effect that enhances foundation application. From there, Continuous Correction™ CC Cream SPF 50+ serves up breathable, radiant-looking coverage as well as broad-spectrum sun protection and skin-tone correction over time. And finally, our Banana Powder leaves skin with a lit-from-within glow and up to 16 hours of smudge- and transfer-resistant wear.
Hydrating Foundation Essentials Routine: Just what your thirsty skin needs, this set includes your summer foundation for dry skin and more! Start with the Smooth Liquid Camo 24-hour hydrating foundation with broad-spectrum SPF 25 for a smooth, soft complexion before adding extra coverage where you need it with Cover Care Concealer. Finish with Loose Setting Powder and you get up to 16 hours of flawless wear to help your makeup beat the heat while your dry skin gets a steady stream of hydration all day (and night).
Body makeup for all skin types
Does your assortment of summer makeup products include body coverage? It should! Our Leg and Body Makeup Essentials Set is your key to flawless skin from the neck down. Our must-have body foundation features high-performance pigments in a buildable, hydrating, SPF 25 formula that easily covers scars, tattoos, varicose veins, stretch marks, age spots, birth marks, bruises and virtually any other skin concern you’d prefer to keep under wraps. This bundle also includes our Loose Setting Powder for up to 16 hours of smudge- and transfer-resistant wear and our luxurious Deluxe Powder Puff for optimal setting results. And when you’re ready to take it off, our Makeup Dissolver makes removal a breeze without potentially irritating rubbing or scrubbing.
Just remember, to achieve the optimal coverage with our Leg and Body Makeup, as well as long-wearing smudge- and transfer-resistance, the application process is key. (And it’s best to avoid using moisturizer, sunscreen or other skincare products before application.)
- Step 1 (Apply): Use long strokes when applying over large areas, such as the arms and legs.
- Step 2 (Build): If you desire additional coverage, allow Leg and Body Makeup to dry fully before adding additional layers.
- Step 3 (Set): For up to 16 hours of smudge- and transfer-resistant wear, apply a generous amount of Loose Setting Powder and leave it on for five to 10 minutes before buffing off.
