Stashing your lighter monsoon shades away and looking for a colour which matches your freshly bronzed-complexion from your recent summer beach vacation? Your moisturizing foundations for the dry air-con environment and cooler months now too oily for the hot and humid summer temperatures?
Time to hit “add to cart” for that right shade that showcases your summer glow and one that withstands and lasts throughout the warmer season.
I pick out my top five summer & Southeast-Asian-weather-ready foundation picks:
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Porelesss Foundation
Available in 10 different shades on LookFantastic, this drugstore foundation is an affordable holy grail option suitable for almost all skin tones.
A medium coverage foundation, it has a natural and satin finish with amazing longevity which wears well throughout the day. Suitable for normal to oily skin, this foundation is true to its name and blurs out pores with micro-powders and absorbs oil for a natural semi-matte to matte finish.
At just $11.00 a pop, I see this as a good choice for your darker months and its wide shade range provides a good transition option when your skin lightens. Can’t find the right shade? Simply mix and match and blend it to a shade which suits you!
