Skin is in; textured, imperfect, unfiltered, real skin. In response, light, natural, anti-foundations are coming in thick and fast, and we’re into it. It’s not about coverage, but rather subtly improving tone and texture, while adding a healthy dose of radiance.
Fully obsessed: I’ve been wearing this foundation for the past two months. Beautifully buildable (I wore a sheer layer to even out skins tone on holiday, I wear more for work days) it covers redness, breakouts and broken capiliaries while mimicking skins natural look, but better.
It comes in 27 shades, I wear shade 2W1 Dawn. Gemma wears shade 2N1 Desert Beige.

I wasn’t sure about this one at first, I couldn’t work out where it sat as a foundation or a tinted moisturiser, but now I’m fully obsessed. It’s a buildable tinted moisturiser with an insane amount of glow that gives just the gentlest touch of coverage without looking greasy. I’m calling it a good nights sleep in a bottle. I wear shade Light/Medium.

One tube of Erborian’s cult CC Cream sells every minute worldwide – and for good reason. While lightly coating the skin – but with great coverage – dubbed a ‘filter for your face’, it minimises redness and imperfections. Industry insiders love it for it’s luminous finish and great coverage. Over time it smooths texture, boosts glow and fades the appearance of dark spots. Use your fingers to apply it, and really work it into the skin like a moisturiser, the warmth of your fingers will help break down the tone so it matches your own complexion seamlessly.
I wear shade Dore, Gemma wears shade Clair.
If you’re looking for something dewy and natural, I think you’re going to like Rosie Huntington-Whitley’s offering. It delivers a good level of hydration with light/medium skin perfecting coverage and a dewy finish. It gives more coverage than you would expect, however it still looks really natural on the skin, blurring imperfections to give tan airbrushed look with a radiantly luminous finish. It feels almost like a Hyaluronic Acid serum leaving skin looking juicy and plump.
It comes in 14 shades. I wear shade 030
