The ultimate test of your summer makeup is if your foundation can withstand the blistering heat in July and August. Finding a foundation that doesn’t slide right off your face the second you step out the door is challenging. Our skin produces more oil in the summer, making our face look shiny and slick.

We found the best summer foundations to mix into your beauty routine this month. These lightweight foundations are designed to combat oil and leave your face looking flawless and pore-free, all summer long.
