These Waterproof Foundations Hold Up Even On The Sweatiest Summer Days

Bright sun, scorching heat, sticky humidity — the sweet byproducts of the season are happening in full force right now, and our makeup is taking the biggest hit. Mascara is streaking and foundation is coming off on our fingers, shirt collars, sunglasses, everything.
It's tempting to ditch makeup all together in the mornings, but if you want to have your cake and eat it, too (without looking cake-y), there are options out there that'll last through your AC-free subway commute or a long day spent by the pool.
The following waterproof, sweat-proof foundations have all been tested by us and have earned the highest marks for stay-all-day coverage — even in the 100 degree heat. They're lightweight and buildable, too, so you won't even know you're wearing 'em.
