5 Light Bases For Spring/Summer

June 8, 2017

Typically i’m a heavy full coverage gal through and through, however when it comes to the warmer months i love something a little bit lighter on my skin. Be it something more dewy or something for those no makeup makeup days lighter bases are my go to. Here’s a few of my current favs for spring…

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
One of my holy grail foundations of all time. Super hydrating, light feeling and a solid medium coverage that feel undetectable on the skin.

The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation
Newest to my collection but a very welcomed addition. As the names suggests it has a serum like texture that glides effortlessly on the skin. It has a Demi Matte finish and a light/medium coverage, perfect for those no makeup makeup days.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
A cult favourite but for a good reason. This foundation gives your skin such a beautiful flawless look without the heavy feel. It’s not quite full coverage but it’s enough to cover redness and minor imperfections. Looks like skin, feels like skin and has a lovely scent.

L’oreal Lumi Magique Foundation 
A long term favourite is the Lumi foundation. Super illuminating without making you look greasy. Makes your skin look radiant and healthy. A medium yet buildable coverage that’s lasts all day.

W7 Genius Foundation 
This foundation is a lot like the ordinary serum foundation, it also has a serum like texture, but this is a lot more lighter in coverage. It’s perfect for good skin days where you only need minimal coverage and has become a staple for me this spring.

What are your go to bases for spring/summer?

    Rimmel is without a doubt my fav foundation, but definitely going to give the others a go x

    I really want to try the L'OrΓ©al Lumi foundation! I've used the rimmel one quite a lot but I could never find the right colour for my skin tone. It still offers great coverage though, I love hearing about new foundations too! Xx

    I'm not really much of a foundation girl but I definitely want to get back into using them. Loved reading your recommendations so will definitely be checking these out when I'm next beauty shopping.

    I love this post, my go-to MAC foundation is too heavy once winter is over so I'll have to try one of these x

    I tend to stick to L'OrΓ©al foundations. I haven't tried the lumi magique one though. I tend to stick to true match
