The Best Foundation for Summer
Hey friends! It’s great to see you. Today I wanted to talk to you about the best foundation for summer: Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation. This foundation is now my go-to foundation for daily wear. Milk Makeup claims this is an ultra-weightless full-coverage foundation with an oil-free, silicone-free formula that lets your skin breathe. And did I mention that Milk Makeup is Leaping Bunny Certified, so of course they’re 100% cruelty-free and 100% vegan? Now do I have your attention?

What Milk Makeup Says About the Blur Liquid Matte Foundation
Designed to make applying and wearing foundation easy, Blur Liquid Matte Foundation offers flawless full coverage at first swipe, leaving a smooth matte finish that looks and feels as light as air. Like Milk’s Blur Stick and Blur Spray, Blur Liquid Matte Foundation instantly minimizes the appearance of pores and imperfections using blurring microspheres, tiny powder-filled spheres that diffuse the light to leave a flawless, soft focus effect.
To keep the lightweight, water-based formula safe, Blur Liquid features an innovative airless tip to minimize air exposure and eliminate dripping—allowing your foundation to stay fresh, the color stay true, and all of it to stay inside the package, not dripping all over your bag.

I wanted to provide you with a point of reference for how Milk Makeup Porcelain compares to other pale foundation swatches, plus my interpretation of the undertone that I see.
Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation in Porcelain
Just in case it needs to be said, I don’t use filters on my photos. That’s my skin. Real unfiltered results from a real person.
In the morning before going to Epcot in Orlando, Fl around 9 am.
After dinner when we were leaving Orlando, Florida to go home after 8pm. Below are the products I used to keep my makeup on all day at Epcot in Walt Disney World.
- Milk Makeup Flex Concealer in Porcelain
- Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer
- Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation in Porcelain
- Supergoop! SPF 50 Setting Spray
The second photo set was taken the night of my 41st birthday party. I love how well Milk Porcelain matches my skintone.
Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation Review
I have challenging skin when it comes to foundation. Between being very fair complected and having neutral to cool yellow olive undertones, it makes finding a perfect shade match challenging. I also have dry skin, some texture from acne scarring on a cheek, seborrheic dermatitis, and rosacea. My skin is less dry these days than it used to be and I think it’s because of the sheer amount of water I drink daily.
I gravitate towards light coverage dewy foundations because that looks best on me. However, I love the Milk Makeup brand and even though I am not in their target demographic being that I am 41, I wanted to give the Blur Liquid Matte Foundation a try because I loved their Flex Concealer. I have zero regrets about buying this foundation.
While the Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation is still more coverage than I prefer on a daily basis, it’s very easy to sheer it out to where I like it with my Danessa Myricks Prism FX Hydrating Lotion. It also works wonderfully with the Prism FX as a primer, but don’t underestimate the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer! Milk’s Hydro Grip primer is excellent for skin like mine.
I shared my wear test with the Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation on my Instagram Stories, from my first check-in in the morning to the afternoon sweaty check-ins throughout Epcot, to after dinner and finally at home before I took my makeup off. My blush, contour and highlight were still in place, despite the high heat, humidity, and the amount of sweating I did. I was very impressed by how well this foundation wore for me.
I also love the color match with Porcelain too, as it’s not too pink, too yellow, or too peach. It’s just right for my undertones. I don’t feel like the foundation emphasizes fine lines or dryness.
I know many of you will be happy to see that the Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation is oil-free and silicone-free, as it can be difficult to find foundations without either!
The Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation is my pick for the best foundation for summer! I was thoroughly impressed by how it wore while I was at Walt Disney World’s Epcot in Orlando. And I’m equally impressed with how it wears and looks throughout a normal day chilling at home.
