Raise your hand if this summer heat has you thinking twice about wearing makeup. With the heat, sometimes you don’t want to wear a full face for comfort or for not knowing if it will stay all day. For those days you may opt for a nice bright and bold lip, but what happens when you decide to wear a full face, but you know just foundation isn’t going to cut it?
Summer is the trickiest season when it comes to maintaining your beauty regimen in this heat, specifically your foundation routine. Hotter temps tend to cause your makeup to slide off before noon, god forbid you spend more time outside than inside, it might slide off sooner.
So how do you keep your foundation in place, all day long? A great foundation primer. Some illuminate, some refine the pores, some keep the skin matte but they are all special in their own way. We’ve even found some lightweight foundation primers that you can barely feel. If you are looking to keep your foundation in place, keep reading for the best foundation primers money can buy.
