7 Humidity-Proof Foundations You Need If You Want Your Makeup To Stay On All Summer

There's nothing worse than the moment you head to the ladies room and realize that your foundation has bled onto your newly dry cleaned blouse. I've been there, and that's why I spent time researching seven humidity-proof foundations you need ASAP! Nothing can ruin a day faster than the sight of melting foundation in the mirror, and this is all too common during the summer. If this is you, keep reading! You're not alone. 

As a former beauty blogger, I've tried my fair share of foundations. Liquid, mineral, HD — you name it. The good news is that there are tons and tons of foundations that are being buzzed about this summer for their summer reliability. Believe it or not, there's even a few options for those of you that prefer liquid to powder. And yes, you can still find a product that offers full coverage without melting off your face. 

In this list, you'll find everything from SPF options to foundations containing yummy ingredients for your skin. So, without further adieu, let's take a closer look at a few of the best...

1. VirginN Pure Mineral Makeup Foundation

VirginN Pure Mineral Makeup Foundation, $38, VirginN Mineral Makeup

I put this one at the top of the list because this is probably the best foundation I have ever used. It's light, has buildable coverage, and is almost 100 percent mineral (aside from the addition of silk peptides). The silk peptides in the product allow the skin to breathe, letting sweat escape while locking moisture in. They also have anti-bacterial properties, making it the perfect blemish cover-up, too! And the best part? Wet the brush and it turns into a liquid concealer. So, if you're looking for a 2-in-1 totally summer proof product. This is it!

2. Bare Minerals Matte Foundation

Bare Minerals Matte Foundation, $29, Sephora

Bare Minerals is a great choice for two reasons: 1. It's affordable, and 2. It's light and doesn't sweat off. The only downside to this product is the coverage is minimal, but if you're looking for a solid, light choice that gives you a natural look, this product is what you should purchase. 

3. Dermablend Cover Creme

Dermablend Cover Creme, $39, Sephora

If you have an uneven skin tone or acne scars and are looking for a product that provides you with more coverage, this product will help you even out and it's sweat-proof, too!

4. MAC Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

Mac Nourishing Waterproof Foundation, $33, Nordstrom

Feel free to jump in the pool with this all-day-stay waterproof foundation. Plus, reviewers say the coverage is unbelievable!

5. NARS All Day Luminous Foundation

Nars All Day Luminous Foundation, $48, Sephora

While this powder feels light to the touch, it covers nicely and even leaves a little bit of a bronze glow behind. Plus, if you need to cover a pimple, change brushes and use a little more. 

6. Clinique All Day Stay Matte

Clinique All Day Stay Matte, $24, Sephora

Aside from providing you with amazing coverage, this product has the power to absorb oil, reduce sweat and stay on for the long haul. So, if you live in a place that's particularly humid, give it a try!

7. L'Oreal True Match Luminous 

L'Oreal True Match Luminous, $11, Amazon

True Match is another one of my personal favorites. While the product tends to be a little heavier, and probably is best used for going out at night, it covers everything nicely and events out the skin. And if you do choose to wear it during the day, it's an SPF 30 formula. As soon as you apply it, you'll notice it melts right into the skin, leaving little residue after a few minutes. Finish with a setting powder and you'll be out the door!

Plus, for the price, you can't beat it!

Hope this helps. And remember, in the heat, you're always better off with a powder, but if you prefer liquid — consult this list first!
