Face masks are mandatory and we wouldn’t have it any other way to ensure the safety of everyone around us — which means we need to start tweaking our beauty and makeup routines accordingly.
Given that it’s summer all-year-round in Malaysia, sweating and staining our masks with makeup is inevitable. Foundation especially tends to get rubbed off over the course of the day, ruining your painstakingly put-together makeup look. To solve this annoying issue, we’ve compiled a list of the six best transfer-proof foundations that won’t melt off onto your mask:
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
When it comes to the ultimate photo filter in foundation form, we can’t leave out Fenty Beauty. Flaunting 50 boundary-breaking range of shades, this foundation is a soft matte long wear foundation that blesses us from medium to full coverage. Simply apply 1-2 pumps of Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation and use a brush to apply on your face.
Or, try Rihanna’s way for the ultimate pore coverage by pressing your brush into the skin and rolling it off. Its oil-free formula is curated with climate-adaptive technology that makes it humidity resistant and sweatproof, so you can say bye to all your enlarged pores. The extremely light-weighted foundation becomes completely undetectable on your skin leaving a soft matte finish that’s just right for this weather — not too shiny and not too matte.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation
Acclaimed for breakthrough formulations and technological innovations, Hourglass has been one of our go-to brands when it comes to beauty buys.
This highly-concentrated liquid foundation by Hourglass does not only offer full-coverage in just half a plump, but also doesn’t require a primer. Consider it your second skin that blends in flawlessly and creates a soft-focus finish. It has everything you’ve been looking in a foundation, from being waterproof to transfer-proof and sweat-proof.
