15 Transfer-Resistant Foundations That Will Stay On Underneath Your Mask
There are tons of different iterations on the market to choose from.
If your summer agenda is full of afternoons spent in your local park or socially distant happy hours with a few friends outdoors, not only do you have to dress for the hot weather (face mask included), you'll have to plan your makeup accordingly. And to avoid your face makeup melting off, waterproof foundations are essential. Luckily, there are tons of different iterations on the market to choose from.
When you're searching for a waterproof foundation, celebrity makeup artist Tasha Reiko Brown, whose clients include Alicia Keys and Tracee Ellis Ross, says to keep your eyes peeled for a few key words. For instance, look for waterproof, sweat-proof, long-lasting, smudge-proof, and budge-proof. "Those buzz words sort of let you know if it has a water- or humidity-resistant formula inside of it," Reiko Brown explains.
Additionally, you'll want to look for a hero ingredient found in waterproof foundations. "Most cosmetics have an ingredient called dimethicone, which is a silicone-based oil," Camara Aunique, a celeb makeup artist who works with Angela Bassett, tells TZR. "Dimethicone helps keep skin soft and assists in giving a smooth application of the product. Waterproof cosmetics contain a special form of dimethicone called dimethicone copolyol."
