As much as our Instagram feeds might try to convince us otherwise, we don't all wake up each morning with an even, radiant and acne-free complexion. While there's almost always a makeup solution to conceal what plagues you, heavy foundation can be cumbersome in the summer months. To the rescue: lightweight BB and CC creams that provide just the right amount of coverage, along with sun protection, and stay put even in the most sweltering conditions.

While not all of these BBs are waterproof — in case you plan on going for a quick dip in the ocean or pool — they do stand up to sweat and humidity, no matter if you're vacationing in Miami, visiting Vegas or just standing on an NYC subway platforms (aka oven). Here, our best recommendations for weatherproof BB creams and CC creams to help you nail an effortlessly flawless look no matter what the conditions.

Perlite (yes, the stuff in potting soil) absorbs humidity and sweat, while airlicium sucks up oil to keep skin matte morning till night.
