With the sun baring down in full force and my usual foundation of choice (Estee Lauder DW) being far too heavy to use for these gorgeous spring days we're having so I've opted for a foundation free face for the past few weeks. I don't want a heavy duty foundation masking my freckled face, and if I'm honest most days I've been rocking the bare faced look, which is working wonders for my skin that's been soaking up the Vitamin D.
When I do feel adding a base for my makeup or adding a light weight coverage I have been reaching for this complexion duo, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser with SPF 20*, and L'Oreal's Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer. The LM Moisturiser adds just another coverage to smooth over any pesky pigmentation marks as well as adding much need moisture to the skin to produce a healthy looking glow. I've literally been mixing this together with a dash of the L'Oreal Primer in the palm of my hand before massaging onto the skin with my RT Buffing Brush before dusting on a touch of powder, a slick of my Korres Lip Butter and I'm ready to go.
The L'Oreal Primer acts as a highlight with its satin white formula which adds a dewy touch of radiance to the skin, for those of us after Millie Mackintosh skin this primer doesn't fail. It can be used alone under foundation for the same effect. Finally I add little touches of the primer to my brow bone, cheekbones and nose if needed and voila! Glowy skin be mine.
My skin is reaping the benefits of a much lighter coverage for day wear and I found this combo a great alternative to the hoard of BB Creams out there. No more hiding my freckles, that are popping up in their masses! What are your top base products for a foundation free face?
