In my opinion, summer and heavy makeup are a disaster waiting to happen. From sweaty streaks and caked up makeup, there are a ton of problems that can result from using the wrong base products this season. Since the temperatures have already begun to soar, I thought I would list out a few incredible BB and CC creams that will give you the coverage you want, minus the weighty feel.
1. Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream™
This BB cream is a true multi-tasker! Not only does it hydrate and smoothen skin, but also provides a light layer of coverage to hide any imperfections. I love using it when I’m in a hurry because it blends in seamlessly and feels absolutely weightless on my face.
2. Laneige BB Cushion Pore Blur
This cushion compact is made for hot weather vacations. With its oil-absorbing properties and infusion of mint water, it keeps skin looking fresh and semi-matte. All you need to do is dab the cushion all over your face to get sheer and even coverage.
3. It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40
Are you dealing with combination or oily skin? This CC cream is your best bet. Comprised of charcoal, colloidal clay and tea tree extract, this formula works to sop up shine and tackle blemishes. Although it is full coverage, it blends beautifully to provide a natural-looking finish. Plus, it comes in a variety of shades to suit a wide range of complexions!
4. MAC Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 35
This non-comedogenic balm is as good as it gets. Unlike many mattifying formulas, this one nixes greasy spots, without drying out your skin. With its blurring properties and lightweight consistency, this tube is ideal for daily use, especially during summer!
5. Clinique Moisture Surge™ CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Some of us still need a good moisturiser, even when the weather gets hot! This oil-free cream keeps skin hydrated, whilst dealing with redness and dullness. Slather it on to get a glowing and smooth complexion that most people dream of.
