In the market for a new foundation? Probably. It's at this time of the year when the weather heats up or you have a holiday abroad and you feel an urgent need to emancipate your skin from the heavier formulas often reached for in winter. Come spring and into 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. The best spring/summer foundations are those that let your skin's beauty shine through and soften imperfections, but don't mask the skin in a cloak of heavy formula. They all amp up the glow and create the perfect base for a dusting of bronzer. Luckily we've edited nine new foundations each with their own USP, so you're bound to find one you'll want to have a summer fling with.
