13 Lightweight Foundations That Won't Weigh You Down This Spring

For beauty junkies, springtime signifies not only renewal and balmy temperatures, but also the need to cosmetically switch gears, starting with foundation. Winter calls for rich, heavy formulas which hydrate ravaged skin, but when summer weather rolls around, thick foundations can prove to be a melty mess.

When the temperatures rise, a foundation or tinted moisturizer with a lighter consistency is your best bet for natural coverage that won't look obvious — or slide off — in scorching heat. Here are my thirteen picks for lightweight foundations to keep you glowing through your spring social calendar.
