Clear skin is so essential for summer. But life happens; breakouts, uneven skin tone and oily t-zone can muck-up this mantra. Don’t suffer because of your skin this summer with these sunshine ready foundations that will take you right through from park to pub garden.
If you’ve got blemish-free skin, you just want to enhance, not completely cover. Opt for a foundation laced with SPF to make sure your skin is safe from harsh rays. If you want to add a subtle glow to go with your swish of foundation, dot some bronzer where the sun naturally hits your face (nose, cheek bones, forehead).
A unique texture between a gel and a cream provides a lightweight feel and a beautiful natural-looking glow. Balance shine and inject essential moisture whilst protecting with SPF 30; it’s everything you need in a bottle.
Application is key when I comes to summer foundation – you want your makeup to be blended seamlessly into your skin, not just sitting on top. Enter BareMinerals Smoothing Face Brush. This dual fibre brush is easy to use and blends like a dream. It perfect for use with the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue.
