By  |  0 Comments

During the dog days of summer, it’s not unheard of for many people to go the low-maintenance route when it comes to their beauty routines. The balmy humidity and scalding heat often leave one wanting for a more simplified yet lasting routine. What’s more – many people find themselves on the go, whether it’s on vacation or a simple trip to a nearby beach. As such, most people look for simple and compact packaging that’ll be easy to toss into one’s makeup bag.

Thus, the beauty world presents the stick foundation: An option whose easy application and blendable formulas allow for a bit of a slap-dash approach to make up. While at the same time being compact and convenient enough to take on the go. It’s no wonder that so many brands are offering their own version of the summertime staple, below are some suggestions for those looking to try the trend:

This triangle-shaped option from hourglass seems really promising in the sense that it is easy to handle. Its triangular shape might make it easier to reach the crevices of the face; perhaps allowing the product to do some double duty as a concealer as well. It has a dewy finish, which might attract those who want to give off a healthy glow. (Priced at $46.00)


This mineral stick foundation from Nyx has been hailed as super blendable. It can even be bought in lighter or darker shades for contouring. Plus, at under $10, it is most certainly a budget-friendly option for those new to the stick trend. (Priced at $4.99)
