In the market for a new foundation? Probably. It's at this time of the year when the weather heats up and you feel an urgent need to emancipate your skin from the heavier formulas you reach for in winter. Come spring and summer, you usually need a lightweight formula with a shade that's a notch or two above what you wore in the depths of winter. Oh, and SPF is always a welcome bonus.

They all amp up the glow and create the perfect base for a dusting of bronzer. Lucky for you, we've highlighted 11 new foundations (each with their own USP), so you're bound to find one you'll want to have a summer fling with.
