When applying foundation, your goal should be for your skin to look as flawless as possible. This is especially difficult during summer when it’s hot and we sweat a lot. Finding the right formula for your skin is half of the battle, but the other half is up to you and the technique you’re using. Here are the best tips we have when it comes to a perfect summer foundation look.

Sheet Mask

A sheet mask that fits your skin type may be just the thing your skin needs before foundation. It’s all about moisturizing the skin if you want to achieve that popular, glowy look.


You may use a primer now, but it’s not necessary. Perhaps you only need it on some parts of your face that tend to get oily quicker?


Apply a small amount of foundation and blend it until it’s even. Pay special attention to the area around your lips and nose. Use your favorite tool and take your time because perfect blending can’t be done in seconds.


Now it’s time to add some highlighter to the highest points of your face. It will reflect beautifully on the sun!

Setting Powder

Our advice is to skip the setting powder as it can make your face look cakey, but if you absolutely have to use it, do a thin layer on your forehead, nose, and chin only.
