Introducing our pick of the top foundations…
If you’re looking for a foundation that can take you from swimming to sundowners, then waterproof foundations are the answer. These foundations are lightweight but still offer a flawless finish while being totally beach-friendly and long-lasting.
MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Foundations
This waterproof formula can be used as a foundation or concealer and won’t budge for a full 24 hours. It won’t leave you greasy either, as it’s oil-free and provides instant and long-term hydration. The formula blends seamlessly into the skin with medium to full weightless coverage and a natural satin finish.
Urban Decay All Nighter
Get full coverage with a matt finish that never looks overdone with Urban Decay All Nighter. Its oil-free formula will last through your night (and day) activities and it doesn’t require multiple layers to achieve full coverage. Best bit? It diffuses light to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin as it mattifies and absorbs oil to reduce the appearance of shine.
Estee Lauder Double Wear
A fave in the beauty community, this one is Lauder’s #1 foundation worldwide. Double Wear is oil-free and actually controls the amount of oil your face produces (whoa!). Water-proof and transfer-resistant, you won’t find this foundation melting in even the most humid of weather.
