Beautiful Bases for Summer

Usually, when it gets to Summer, I'm always faced with the uncertaintity of not knowing what to wear on my face. Do I go for a foundation? Or maybe something with light coverage? Sometimes (very, VERY often), I will step out wearing only concealer. The dilemmas we girls face ey?!
 I have selected three different base products that I think are perfect for Summer. Whether you're going for something that gives a very natural finish or you want a gorgeous glow, I know the three perfect products for you! 

1) Tinted Moisteriser. This is my best friend during those hot and humid days when you really just can't be bothered to cover your face in heaps of foundation. I personally really like using the No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisteriser. It gives excellent coverage and though it feels like a moisturiser, it works more like a foundation. And it has SPF 15! WIN! Though I must say, last time I checked there are only three different shades, so being a pale alien, I have to mix this with other foundations and moisturisers. 

2) BB Cream. I have been loving this Body Shop All-In-One BB cream. At first, I wasn't sure. It gives extremely light coverage and me being a person who can look like the walking dead at the best of times, was unsure whether £12 was justifiable. However, with the right amount of concealer, this can work wonders. It makes my skin look healthy and you bearly feel it on your face. This is the perfect combination for Summer. 

3) Foundation. I had to include at least one foundation in this post. I also had to include an unfocused photo (sorry, I'm not technically awesome at the minute). Nars Sheer Glow is my all time favourite foundation. THIS gives your skin the perfect glow. The coverage is excellent. It is worth every penny. Bravo Nars. 

Tell me, what are your favourite moisturisers, BB creams and foundations? I'd love to know!

  2. I really love the Skin 79 Hot Pink BB Cream. And Ive recently tried the Wet n Wild Coverall foundation and it's very good swell. Kind of a surprising drugstore find.

  4. I've got a sample of the NARS Sheer Glow. I have oily skin, but I love that it actually keeps me matte more than my other oil free bases. However, so far I've seen that it can get pretty cakey if I try to build up the coverage. I would still like to purchase when I finish my Laura Mercier foundation, though :)
