It seems like the moment we’re on the other side of Labor Day my tan starts to fade. It doesn’t matter if we still have a few 70 degree days, my color just flees. So I’m forced to switch my skincare and makeup regimens as soon as I take my final summer Friday, which includes my foundation.

And for me, finding a new foundation is often problematic because I have olive undertones, I tan into a copper-like color, and I have dry skin that gets clogged pores. If I had to check a Facebook style relationship box about my skin it would clearly be ‘it’s complicated.’ But I’m always optimistic and eager to try new foundations for my changing skin needs.

So I went through several of the new foundations launched this summer and fall to see how they hold up in different weather, through long days, and through breakouts and other skin concerns.
