As much as we love our plakadong foundations, come summertime, all we want are products that provide ample coverage while still allowing our skin to breathe in the humid weather. This is where lightweight bases such as tinted moisturizers, sunscreens, and BB creams come into play.

And since we can never get enough of these lightweight bases, we decided to ask the girls at Cosmo Mixers for their go-to products with us. Keep on scrolling for their recos:
