The Lightweight Base BreakdownMonday, August 25, 2014
I don't know about you but when summer rolls around I am dying to break out the lighter bases. Long summer days, exciting adventures and nights out with friends mean I don't have the time for full coverage foundation or touch ups throughout the day. I want something that covers up the sunburn but lets my skin do the talking. I am all about a breathable base that feels like air and I have rounded up my top 4 in the lightweight base breakdown.
The Fluid Foundation: Maybelline has knocked it out of the park with their newest release; buildable coverage, satin finish and feels like nothing on the skin. The Dream Wonder Liquid Touch Foundation is the perfect pick for those nights out and looks amazing in photographs.
The CC Cream: For those super natural days when all you need is a little bit of a complexion correction, pick the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream. A dewy finish base with sheer coverage that covers up any redness and dark shadows but lets your skin be the main attraction.
The Cult Classic: When I think about tinted moisturizers, the first one that comes to mind is Laura Mercier's oil free option. A creamy base that offers a bit more coverage than the average TM and applies a bit more like a foundation. Gives a flawless finish that can't be beat.
The Underdog: The Balm is still a relatively new brand that is making it's mark on the beauty world, one product that definitely does that get enough attention is their Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer. A lightweight base that applies like a lotion and has the best colour match I've ever found!
For those "no makeup makeup days" these beauties are the way to go. What is your go to lightweight base?
