The temperature is creeping up in the UK and as were inching closer and closer to the real spring months I've been looking into switching up my bases. Unless my skin is really playing up or going through a major oily patch then I like to reach for something a little lighter that I can let my skin breath a little more. Whilst I don't need any help to add that dewy glow or what I like to call sweat in the warmer months, I do like something that can work with a powder and a primer and work in thin layers rather than piling it on.
A radiance booster: My skin tends to look dull a lot, there are many factors that go into this like a bad nights sleep, stress and generally being under the weather more often than not. The YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat gives my skin such a beautiful glow whilst evening everything out and giving enough coverage to hide any blemishes too. Whenever I use this as a base I always think it gives me the complexion that I would like to have without wearing any make up at all.
The tinted moisturiser: I'm new to the world of tinted moisturisers I think I have only ever used one by Natural Collection years ago. I've been giving the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint* a whirl and so far so good with this one, I have the shade 01 bare which sits well with my fair complexion. This smoothes out skin tone whilst only adding a sheer veil of coverage, so it lives it to the name perfectly. Tinted moisturisers I think are the perfect option if your going away and don't want to wear a full face of make up on a daily basis.
My skin but better: The release of the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation last year was quite the hit within the beauty community. Such a lovely light formulation that blends into the skin effortlessly whilst still giving a good medium coverage without leaning too dewy or matte. It goes un-dectable on the skin and probably one the most natural bases that I own. The only problem is that it doesn't have a pump so the bottle gets super messy which is a pain.
The BB cream: I don't have much time for BB creams and CC creams or whatever else there going to bring out with two initials in the title. However when I have some sort of tan on my face I always reach for the Dr Jart Water Fuse BB Cream as it's a smidge too dark all year round. This works at controlling oil and helping cancel out any redness in the skin so works well for blemish prone skin.
What base will you reach for this S/S?
