This Summer-Proof Makeup Won't Suffocate Your Face

Photographed by Tom Corbett.
While we like our full-coverage foundations and matte lipsticks in the winter, ain't nobody got time for that mess come summer. With the sticky humidity and sweltering heat, the makeup we put on in the morning can feel like a horrible, thick mask by mid-afternoon. And that's not fun for anyone.

But us makeup lovers aren't just going to go barefaced for three months — that would be a little drastic, no? Luckily, there are products that are actually fine — scratch that, pleasant — to wear from June through August. Ahead, find the tubes, bottles, and jars that we're stocking up on this season. Thanks to these lightweight wonders, you might forget you're even wearing makeup at all.
