Say Hello To The New Breed Of Foundations

When it comes to achieving beautiful skin, there is a new plethora of foundations on the block that promise to whole heartedly raise the bar as far as a glowing, healthy, flawless complexion is concerned.

Over the years, foundation formulas have without a doubt come on in leaps and bounds – but the new additions take it one step further. Here’s why…

The one that works like magic
Once again, Charlotte Tilbury has launched a product that although new, has already cemented its status as being cult. Described by the lady herself as being ‘hyper-intelligent’, it provides full coverage yet feels totally weightless. Just as we thought it couldn’t get any better, it totally saves face by infusing the anti-ageing and nourishing benefits of a luxe cream too. Delightful.

The one that’s infused with serum
Perricone MD’s serum/foundation hydrid has totally won us over. We’re not sure if it’s the perfectly dewy finish or the sheer quantity of skincare benefits it comes equipped with – but we can safely safe it’s like nothing else to ever grace our face. With SPF 30, it provides just the right amount of coverage, while still being breathable. Try it once and you’ll be hooked.

The one that’s basically weightless
We had an inkling this would be a good’un – namely because it was the cover up of choice for practically every makeup artist at the autumn/winter 2015 shows.  And now we know why. The gel/serum formula is hydrating, build-able and stays put. Softly bluring any imperfections, it’s the key to flawless, glowing skin. Bravo MAC.

The one that’s ideal for on-the-go
Fans of Estée Lauder’s famed Double Wear will be pleased to know it now comes in an innovative compact, meaning on-the-go touch-ups have never been easier. You simply press a little button to dispense the perfect amount of foundation – one press for a light touch and two for more coverage. Long-lasting and enriched with a hydrating complex, it’ll leave your skin looking flawless yet natural.
