Favourite Summer Bases

Now that summer is here I tend to switch my makeup bases to something a bit lighter. It can get pretty humid here in the summer so the last thing I want is a heavy foundation on my face. Today I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite bases for summertime!

Estée Edit Skin Glowing Balm*

This base acts as a tinted moisturizer and gives the skin a dewy finish. I love the packaging, it looks sleek and is really good quality. This base comes in 12 shades and looks really nice on its own on good skin days but layers well underneath foundation if you need a bit more coverage.

3LAB Perfect BB SPF40*

This BB cream comes with a roller to apply it. While I still prefer to use my Beauty Blender, I thought this applicator was pretty cool as it was something I hadn’t seen before. It brightens and moisturizes the skin and gives good coverage while feeling lightweight. It only comes in three shades so it might be tricky to find a match. It’s also quite pricey. It makes my skin look flawless though, so if you’re looking to splurge on a base, this is a nice one!

Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear ABC Cushion Foundation*

It seems like cushion foundations are all the rage right now, so I was pretty excited to give this one a try. The packaging is super cute and the formula contains SPF 50 which I love. This mineral formula is super hydrating and lightweight on the skin. It comes in three shades. I have the lightest shade and it is perfect for me this time of year now that I’m a little more tanned, but it’s definitely not one I could wear in the winter. It gives light-medium coverage and gives my skin an airbrushed finish that I love, especially for events and nights out.

Garnier SkinActive BB Cream + Blur*

This BB cream hydrates and soothes my skin while blurring any imperfections and minimizing the look of my pores. It gives the skin a matte finish which I don’t always choose in the summer, but it’s great for days when I’m a bit oily or for nights out.
