The New Way Beauty Gurus Are Applying Foundation For Summer? Cushion Compacts.

When it comes to makeup application during the warmer months, one thing is for sure: less is better. Really. Even as one of those women who needs full face coverage just to go to the supermarket, I give up on the heavy stuff on steamy, humid days. That is, however, until I got put on to cushion compacts.

Combining the total coverage of a liquid foundation with the portability of your favorite mirrored compact, cushion compacts provide an unprecedented method of application. By literally patting this formula on, you get a dewy, even glow that will make even the biggest foundation-hater a total convert.

Tons of beauty brands are making cushion compacts now, but our three faves are Pur Minerals’ Air Perfection Cushion Compact Foundation, which is infused with vitamin E to protect and hydrate your skin, AMOREPACIFIC’s Color Control Cushion Compact, which boasts SPF 50 sun protection and Lancome’s Miracle Cushion Foundation, which comes in 11 shades to match virtually every skin tone.

So while today’s heat, rain and humidity would have me telling you to wipe it all off, I must admit that I have a cushion compact in my bag right now–and have already put on a few clean swipes. They’re the truth this summer.
