Beach weddings are very memorable and picturesque—backdropped by the sun and the sea, it makes for a romantic environment, and admittedly, really nice photos and selfies. But the lovely location comes with a price: a fully made-up face is definitely going to melt especially with the humid Philippine weather. So to keep you plakado, here's a list of the best lightweight bases that will last even on hot days. (Ed's note: Always put on SPF before applying makeup! )
NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation
Rustan's The Beauty Source
Staying power: 16 hours
This foundation's formula is very pigmented, so you just need two dots for your whole face. And although it says "radiant" on the bottle, expect it to have a matte (yet not flat!), skin-like finish on your complexion.
Esteé Lauder Doublewear Nude Water Fresh Makeup
Staying power: 24 hours
Now if you're looking for a breathable base that will stay on for a long period, then turn to Esteé Lauder's lighter version of their bestselling Double Wear foundation. It bestows a fresh and matte finish on the face—a major factor if you've got oily skin. Apply in sheer layers for a natural-looking effect.
BYS Mineral Compact Foundation
Envelope your face with a veil of lightness with this powder foundation that offers long-lasting coverage. It's great for those with oily, acne-prone, or sensitive skin.
Tinted moisturizer + concealer
Another combo to try is buffing a tinted moisturizer all over the face and just spot-concealing blemishes and dark circles. This pair feels lightweight to almost nothing on the skin.
Clinique Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15
Power Plant Mall
Revlon Colorstay Concealer
Oil-free primer + concealer
Remain shine-free on the T-zone by applying a mattifying primer on the forehead, nose, and chin. Just touch up a bit of concealer on the areas that need to be covered.
Pop Beauty Face Magnet Primer
Perricone No Concealer Concealer
P1,750, Beauty Bar
Concealer + highlighter
If you want to ditch the foundation, just focus on concealing your blemishes, then dab a highlighting powder on top of the cheekbones to mimic dewy skin. Dust powder on the T-zone to keep the shine away.
Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme
Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Twinkle Powder Highlighter
P1,800, Greenbelt 5
