9 Hydrating Foundations For Summer For A Full Coverage Glow

Spring is here and summer is fast approaching. While you may have highlighters and hydrating sprays on your mind, one seasonal product you may not want to change is your foundation. These nine hydrating foundations for summer are perfect if you want a gorgeous hydrated glow as well as full coverage. While BB creams and tinted moisturizers seem to be all the rage during warmer weather, sometimes, you just want that full on glam or a bit of extra coverage to protect you from the sun.

Personally, I'm a full coverage girl and whether that comes from years of trying to cover acne in high school or just watching one too many YouTube tutorials, I keep my medium to full coverage foundation no matter the season. As most beauty junkies know, though, not all foundations with a heavier coverage are matte and winter-ready. In fact, some full coverage foundations offer tons of great hydration and can give you a gorgeous glow.

Whether you're just looking for a subtle glow from within or you want a foundation that's also going to give skin care benefits and moisture to your skin, there's a foundation that's perfect for summer that won't have you compromising your coverage. What foundations are a good place to start?
