6 Foundations to Pack on Your Beach Vacation

So you’ve booked your tickets, and your beach adventure is fast approaching – it’s now time to pack your beach holiday essentials.  But what makeup do you bring with you?

Hot and humid weather can be disastrous on your foundation – making your face feel heavy, greasy, and patchy.  Of course, you wouldn’t want to suffer from foundation meltdown while donning your best beach outfit and sipping cocktails by the beach.

Steer clear from foundation failure and stay picture perfect with these amazing 6 foundations that not only last all-day, but stay flawless and smooth no matter how hot it gets.

1. BareMinerals Matte Foundation

Giving you good coverage without feeling or looking heavy on your face, its made of weightless minerals that blend seamlessly once applied.  So technically, there’s nothing to melt and therefore, no cakey face for you while out and about in a tropical destination.

Hypoallergenic,  dermatologist-tested, and non-acnegenic, it’s absolutely perfect for those who suffer from breakouts since it’s gentle on the skin.

And with SPF 15, you’ve got added protection from sun damage after you’ve applied sunscreen, or when you forget to apply some on a regular day.

2. Estee Lauder Double Water Stay-in-Place Makeup

With an impressive 24 hours staying power, you can apply this on your face at daytime, and not have to reapply come night time – simply perfect for when you’re exploring during the day and have to head straight to dine out in the evening.

It lasts all day since it’s made specifically to withstand heat and humidity, allowing your face to enjoy the full coverage, while still feeling comfortable and lightweight.  It also contains SPF 10, so it doesn’t just even out your skin tone, but it protects from sun damage, too.

3. NARS Luminous Foundation

Delivering natural-looking coverage, its lightweight formula is humidity-proof, making it last while still feeling light on your skin even after an entire day of enjoying the outdoors.

It features the brand’s tone correcting technology, which works instantly to reduce redness, neutralize dullness, and discoloration.  So if your face is suffering from redness due to staying out in the sun for too long, this foundation does a great job at evening out your skin tone.

Boasting of 16-hours staying power, it stays light, comfortable, and breathable from day to night.

4. Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation

Sweat-proof, oil-free, and reduces the appearance of fine lines, this foundation will have you looking shine-free and flawless for up to 15 hours.  It features a breakthrough formula developed to specifically withstand intense conditions, such as heat, intense lighting, and humid weather, allowing you to look and feel beautiful without having to worry about foundation meltdown even after all-day outdoor activities.

5. L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation

This liquid foundation is praised for its amazing ability to conceal blemishes, acne, dark spots, and even dark under eye circles.  It’s also great for evening out skin tone, and features the brand’s patented color technology, which works to match your tone and texture, so you won’t look too light or too dark if you’ve applied one too many.

With an ultra-pure formula, it doesn’t contain oils, pore-clogging filters, or fragrances, making it gentle and allergy-free on most skin types.  Aside from making you look flawless while on the beach or dancing under the moonlight, it also contains Vitamin C and Pro-vitamin B5, which both nourish, strengthen, and revitalizes skin cells – making it the perfect solution for skin that’s become dry after days of sun and sand.

Select shades also feature SPF 17 for added sun protection.

6. Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation

Another oil-free and lightweight liquid foundation, the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation is specially made to feel like you have nothing on your face.  Having heavy makeup can make you feel self-conscious and it totally ruins a perfect day exploring an island or eating lunch out in a fabulous beach club.

Loaded with ingredients packed with nourishment for your skin, it features the brand’s Matrixyl 3000, which is a powerful anti-wrinkle peptide, green tea antioxidants, and sodium hyaluronate, which hydrates the skin, making your face look and feel moisturized even after an entire day under the sun.

Going on a beach vacation doesn’t mean you always have to go barefaced while enjoying the beach, the pool, and the company of friends and loved ones.  You can still look flawless and beautiful without having to worry about a cakey face with these 6 awesome foundations that give you perfect coverage, lasts all day, and stays smooth even in hot and humid weather.
