Don’t Sweat It: These Are The High Coverage Foundations Celebs And Influencers Swear Won’t Melt Off During Summer

Summer is still in full swing, which can be torturous for makeup lovers. If you don’t wear the right heat-proof makeup, your face can look like it is literally about to melt off.

However, finding the right makeup that can withstand the sizzling weather doesn’t have to be hard. We rounded up nine heat-proof foundations that Latina celebrities swear by. If these products can last through showstopping performances, red carpet events, and photoshoots, then they can last through the summer heat. So if you decide to shop for any of these, know you’re in good hands.

Selena Gomez and Cardi B are fans of this heat-proof foundation. They’ve worn it countless times on the red carpet and for good reason. It’s lightweight, long-wearing, and it lasts through million-degree heat. Gomez used it to get her glowy, ethereal 2018 Met Gala look.

Cardi B has also worn this foundation on very special occasions.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper memorably wore the foundation when she announced her pregnancy during her “SNL” performance,

Jennifer Lopez’s longtime makeup artist, Scott Barnes, applies this foundation stick on the singer for her “All I Have” show in Vegas. Allure caught a glimpse of the products used, and this was among them.

The triangle applicator makes it easy to contour.

And we all know that contour is a huge part of creating J.Lo’s infamous glow. If this foundation can last through the star’s jaw-dropping show, then it can last through anything.

Even though this foundation is lightweight and gives your skin luminosity, that doesn’t mean it can’t last through the L.A. heat.

Gina Rodriguez is a fan of this luxe product and has worn it on the red carpet.

Her makeup artist, Carissa Ferreri, told Refinery 29 that Gina, “loves the finish, which she says is perfectly dewy and glowy.” Again, don’t let the word dewy deter you. If it works for the “Jane the Virgin” star during star-studded events, then it can work for us.

4. BH Cosmetics Naturally Flawless Foundation

This is another Cardi B-approved foundation. The rapper rocked this affordable product during her glam pregnancy photoshoot, and there was no sweat drop in sight (we all know how hot those camera lights can be).

The best part? It’s under $10, so you can look flawless on a budget.

Our motto? If it’s good enough for the “I Like It” singer, then it’s good enough for us.

5. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This is a beloved foundation among celebrities, so it’s no surprise that Demi Lovato is one of them. The lightweight yet long-lasting product gives your skin a radiance that other products just can’t do.

Jill Powell, Lovato’s makeup artist, swears by it.

Powell told The Hollywood Reporter that this foundation “melts into the skin and evens out skin tone, giving a skin-like finish. Because of the velvet-matte finish of the foundation, it lasts throughout the day and even performances.”

6. L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation

Another affordable find, Camila Cabello is a fan of this long-wearing foundation. While the “Havana” singer is part of the L’Oréal family (she’s one of their ambassadors), it’s nice to know that she still opts for this product on and off the stage.

Camila recently used the product during her Havana makeup collection event in L.A.

Fun fact: L.A. in August is hot AF, so this drugstore foundation must be well worth the under-$10 price tag.

7. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Matte Longwear Foundation

Fenty Beauty has changed the beauty game so much that it would be crazy not to have it on this list.

Aside from its inclusive shade range, this matte, long-wearing foundation lasts through just about anything.

And it’s no surprise that “Orange Is The New Black” star, Dascha Polanco is a fan. The actress has worn this countless times, and it’s honestly a no-brainer as to why.

You can buy it, here.

8. Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Becky G and Natti Natasha have worn this foundation numerous times, especially on the red carpet, during interviews, and live performances.

This full-coverage foundation will hide discoloration while still giving your skin luminosity.

It’s weightless and lasts up to 16 hours, so it’s easy to see why the two biggest Latin pop stars wear this product.

You can buy it, here.

9. Becca Cosmetics Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation

Amara La Negra has used this foundation multiple times, and if it means we can get radiant skin like hers, then sign us up.

This matte foundation will keep your skin smooth and shine-free.

You won’t have to worry about looking shiny or greasy past 3 p.m.

Kat Von D Beauty No Longer Belongs To The Famous Tattoo Artist, ‘I Just Can’t Do Everything,’ She Said

katvond / Instagram

After 12 years of bold colors, vegan products, and cruelty-free beauty innovation, Kat Von D announced that she’s stepping down from her eponymous beauty line. The queen of vegan makeup sold her stakes in the company and the cosmetics line will be rebranding to reflect her departure from the makeup line. 

Kat Von D announced that she has sold all of her remaining shares in Kat Von D Beauty to partner Kendo.

The makeup line’s existing parent company will now take ownership completely now that Von D has formally resigned from her role. In a company press release, the brand stated that while Von D pursues her artistic endeavors, she will no longer be involved with the brand “in any capacity.”

Kat Von D announced she’s parting ways with her eponymous beauty brand after 12 years to allow the brand to continue to grow.

This past year has been one of great change for me. As many of you know, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, launched my vegan shoe line, and am now busy prepping to release my long awaited album in the Spring, followed by an international tour! As much as I wish I could balance all of this, on top of continuing my makeup line, it has become clear to me that I just can’t do everything at the maximum capacity. It's hard to admit this, since I’ve always said “You can do everything and anything.” But I don’t think admitting one's limits is a bad thing. With that said, I’ve decided to sell my shares of the brand, turning it over to Kendo, my partners for the past 11 years. This was not an easy decision, but after careful consideration, I decided I wanted the makeup line to continue to thrive and grow, and I believe Kendo is primed to do just that. The transition for you, my loyal customers, will be seamless. In order to avoid any confusion with such a big change, Kat Von D Beauty will take a moment to rebrand itself, so you will start noticing the change from KatVonD Beauty to KvD Vegan Beauty. I'd like to thank my beloved fans+followers who supported my vision to create a brand that stood for compassion, true artistry, and challenged modern ideals of beauty — most of which I never could relate to. I was able to create a makeup line that made outsiders like me feel like we have a place in this “beauty” world, and gave myself and others the tools to express ourselves in our own unique way, whether it was embraced by the majority or not. And I just couldn’t have done any of this without you! Lastly, thank you for understanding+respecting my choice, as it was a difficult one to make, but one I am proud of regardless, and am confident that the team will continue the KvD legacy! Here’s to many, many more years of KvD Vegan Beauty!

The tattoo and makeup artist shared the news on Instagram, revealing that it wasn’t an easy decision. On top of being a new mom, launching a vegan shoe line, and preparing to release an album and tour in the spring, Von D admits she is no longer able to dedicate enough attention to the cosmetics brand. 

“This past year has been one of great change for me. As many of you know, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, launched my vegan shoe line, and am now busy prepping to release my long-awaited album in the Spring, followed by an international tour,” she wrote in the post’s caption. “As much as I wish I could balance all of this, on top of continuing my makeup line, it has become clear to me that I just can’t do everything at the maximum capacity.”

Kat Von D dedicated more than 2 years to her vegan shoe line.

Von D worked to create her own shoe collection, making careful decisions about everything from a price point ranging from $90 to $350 to where, exactly, the pieces would be made.

“I became vegan in 2013 and, to be honest, I thought it was just a dietary thing,” she told InStyle “Then I was looking at my shoe collection and everything was either made out of leather or snakeskin, or the adhesive used was derived from horses.”

The silver lining for fans of Kat Von D’s cult-favorite products is that they’re not going anywhere.

Kat Von D Beauty’s iconic products like the cult-favorite Ink Liner and Lock-It Foundation aren’t going anywhere. Under Kendo’s complete ownership, the brand’s current product lineup will still be available, and there will be future launches. All products will still be 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free. 

She continued  “…With that said, I’ve decided to sell my shares of the brand, turning it over to Kendo, my partners for the past 11 years. This was not an easy decision, but after careful consideration, I decided I wanted the makeup line to continue to thrive and grow, and I believe Kendo is primed to do just that.” 

As of Jan 16. Kat Von D Beauty is slowly rebranding as KVD Beauty. The announcement of the new name was made on the brand’s Instagram

“Today, our founder Kat Von D has parted ways with us, as she leaves to pursue other artistic endeavors (vegan shoe line and music). We wish her the best of luck and thank her for 12 years of partnership,” reads the post’s caption. “We are NOW renamed and re-branded KVD Vegan Beauty – and fully owned and operated by Kendo. The same team that created our iconic and beloved products for the past 12 years (and built the empire with Kat) is ready to make history again. We still value self-expression, compassion, and empowerment.” 

Von D launched her vegan cosmetic brand in 2008 with four red lipsticks.

Now, there are over 250 products in the collection, which are sold globally in 36 countries at Katvondbeauty.com, Sephora.com, and Sephora stores. Products like the Ink Liner and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick are both fan and industry favorites. 

With Von D out, KVD Vegan Beauty will continue to offer its existing product range, and will now release new innovations under Kendo.

“We are fully positioned to continue the brand’s growth and development in both product and marketing,” David Suliteanu, Kendo CEO says. “We have developed a very strong product pipeline for 2020 and beyond. The same Kendo team that made history with KVD Vegan Beauty is ready to do it again.” 

Von D added that during her tenure, she felt she was able to create a line that made outsiders feel like they had a “place in the beauty world.” She also expressed confidence in Kendo for carrying the KVD legacy.

Kat Von D has become a titan in the beauty industry due to her eponymous makeup line’s ultra long-wear highly pigmented products that also happen to be vegan and cruelty free. 

And although fans have long looked to the Queen of Ink because of her unconventional aesthetic and beauty expertise, the Von D recently announced she has decided to permanently step back from her successful business to focus on other projects as well as her new family.

On Thursday via Instagram, Kat Von D announced the unexpected news that she was selling her shares in Kat Von D Beauty in order to focus on other projects.

@thekatvonD/Instagram

In the lengthy statement, Von D explained that 2019 had been a year of “great change” due to the birth of her baby boy as well as her expansion into music. She went on to explain that, while she tried to balance all of her projects to the best of her ability, she wasn’t able to fully contribute to each of her projects at “maximum capacity.” Therefore, she would be officially stepping down from Kat Von D Beauty.

“I’ve decided to sell my shares of the brand, turning it over to Kendo, my partners for the past 11 years,” she said. “This was not an easy decision, but after careful consideration, I decided I wanted the makeup line to continue to thrive and grow, and I believe Kendo is primed to do just that.”

Von D went on to reveal that the beauty line would be re-branded as KvD Vegan Beauty in order to “avoid any confusion” for the brand’s customers.

@kvdveganbeauty/Instagram

Although the Sephora-based Kat Von D Beauty came out of the gate strong–even being named Sephora’s fastest-growing brand in 2018–the brand subsequently suffered from a highly-publicized dip in sales after Von D herself was embroiled in multiple controversies. Among the controversies was Von D declaring that she would not be vaccinating her child. Additionally, Von D had long been plagued by accusations of antisemitism throughout her career. 

The line will in all likelihood be in good hands with the LVMH beauty incubator Kendo, which also produces other popular brands like Fenty Beauty and Marc Jacobs. The former Kat Von D Beauty website has already been updated with the name change along with a statement from the CEO of Kendo. “I want to thank Kat for helping to change the beauty industry with us,” the statement reads. “We are fully positioned to continue the brand’s growth and development in both product and marketing…The same KENDO team that made history with KVD Vegan Beauty is ready to do it again.”

Since its inception, Von D has been extremely hands-on with her makeup line, involved in every aspect of the business from product inception to packaging.

@thekatvonD/Instagram 

“I name every shade, design every piece of packaging, help choose the colors and textures, the finishes and formulations,” she told HELLO! magazine in 2016. “There isn’t a font used on my packaging – I personally design and draw every letter on it. I even curate the content for our Instagram. I poured myself 100 per cent into this and I know that my customers appreciate that.”

And the tattoo artist and television personality obviously hit a chord with customers who felt connected to her through her products. In addition, Kat Von D’s products were truly high-quality at an affordable price-point. You could say that Von D was a trailblazer in the media personality-turned-businesswoman model that so many celebrities have since tried to replicate.

As for fans of Kat Von D, they took the news with a mixture of admiration, disappointment, and acceptance. 

Kat Von D has such a devoted fan base that many of them would follow her to the ends of the earth.

This person expressed undying devotion to Von D, no matter what she decides to do next:

Some Kat Von D supporters are ride-or-die.

This person thanked Kat for all she’s done for the beauty community.

Part of Kat Von D’s appeal is that she’s always marched to the beat of her own drum. For her, makeup was a means of artistic expression, not a means of blending in with everyone else.

This person shared a touching story about how Von D’s past generosity changed her life.

This kind of personal touch is hard to replicate once a brand becomes super corporate. 

This person was 100% supportive of Von D’s decision to step back.

It’s especially hard to juggle so many products as a new mom.

This person was just excited to hear Kat’s new album.

Not many people go from being a makeup mogul to being a rock-star. Talk about a pivot.
