Spring / summer is all about natural, glowy, flawless looking skin. Well, thats the look I go for all year but there is something about Spring that really makes me want to up my base game. During the warmer months I tend to go for something that has a lighter, fresher coverage - theres nothing worse looking than when the sun cooks your makeup! So I have a little roundup of the bases that will be coming with me throughout the season...
Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done | £25
I'm a huge fan of the Urban Decay Naked skin line, so obviously, with promises of blurring imperfections, a unifyed skin tone and weightless feel, I had to add this to the family! It combines key skin care benefits from a moisturiser and the coverage of light foundation in a hybrid formula. This is so light and undetectable on the skin. Its more of a demi matte than a glowy foundation making it perfect for those long, hot days. It is definitely a sheer foundation, but I actually prefer this during summer. And the staying power is incredible, it lasts all day until I want to remove it!
Bare minerals Complexion Rescue | £26
This was my BFF last summer and I'm certainly not leaving it behind this year! The finish is lovely - fresh and glowy. This has a good, medium but buildable coverage. And like the Urban Decay One and Done it has added skincare benefits. I do find this one more hydrating than the One and Done so it is perfect for days when my skin is little more dehydrated.
NARS Sheer Glow | £31
Unfortunately breakouts and bad skin don't take a holiday (although, they really should) during the summer, so somedays a fuller coverage will be needed. And Sheer Glow will be perfect for them. The coverage is really good and easily buildable in a lightweight, easy to blend finish. It has a naturally radiant finish which is perfect for when I want a fuller coverage but don't want to compromise the glow. I imagine this would be pretty heat proof too! Its a win win.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation | £29
One of the best foundations I've ever tried! And I've tried a lot! This also has a Medium coverage and the formula is just brilliant - Its so light and melts into the skin with minimal effort, leaving behind a seamless, flawless finish. That truely gives a lit from within glow. I find it very hydrating yet its formulated without oils. This has been through every season so far with me and spring summer will be no expection!
So there you have my current spring / summer base. Have you tried any of these? What are favourite spring summer bases?
