A foundation can make your look luminous or accentuate the things you want to hide, so choosing a perfect one for yourself will always be a challenge, no matter how saturated a beauty market is-and I should know, I have trialled a few .)
The one I am going to tell you about is my ultimate secret but it’s definitely worth sharing and comes from one of my favourite make-up maestros, Mrs Bobbi Brown.
Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 tinted moisturising balm can be used every day:
-as a tinted moisturiser if you want slight coverage when going shopping or to the office or doing a school run-you will look casually groomed and luminous yet very natural.
-if you layer it a bit more, it will make your face look picture perfect or serve you well if you are going out for a dinner date.
-it protects your skin from aggressive sun rays yet you will still tan if you are wearing it during your holidays.
– it smells so good, it will lift your spirits by just opening the jar it is contained in.
-as the formulation is aimed at dry skin, you can use it instead of your usual moisturiser-if you are in a hurry in the morning for example-your skin will look and feel perfectly moisturised and polished ( it contains carrot oil & vitamin A extract ).
I also love the fact that it doesn’t disappear as the day wears off and you feel groomed without having to run to the bathroom to re-apply your make-up, so for all of the above reasons this is my ultimate beauty staple that I will remain faithful to for the foreseeable future.
The Balm comes in 8 shades and costs £33 for 30 mls ( it will last you a long time and my current shade, light to medium tint, has worked well through springtime to the summer, when I started getting more tanned).
