Living in a heat prone climate requires a bespoke approach to makeup and it all starts with a good base.
Foundations need to be lightweight, but provide good coverage. They should leave a dewy finish, yet mattify any imperfections. Not an easy challenge to take on, but lucky for us there are more than a few options that can tackle even the trickiest complexion dilemma’s.
From some of the below picks, note the Hourglass’ ‘Immaculate’ that is designed for blemish-prone skin and has a water resistant formula which is ideal for humid weather.
Diorskin Forever Mousse instantly ensures a long lasting, extra-matte finish while providing light, non-powdery coverage that results in a natural and radiant look. From next month, Laura Mercier launches Flawless Fusion ultra-longwear foundation in 20 different shades that promises to deliver full coverage for up to 15 hours.
For something extra, By Terry’s colour-corrective formula contains Centifolia rose cells that add hydration and Vitamin E that protects from ageing environmental factors.
