The hot summer months are the perfect time to modify up your makeup routine. The warmer the weather the lighter your makeup should be. The reason being that because the weather is so warm your pores tend to soak up more product and appear larger. By your pores soaking up more product you are prone to having more break outs.
Changing your makeup routine to a lighter one will allow your skin to breathe and cause you less break outs. One way to reduce your makeup routine is by using a lightweight foundation that is perfect for summer. Here are ten of my favorite lightweight foundations that are perfect for summer.
