Five must-have summer bases

By  |  0 Comments

Oxygenetix Foundation


AS women tend to wear less make up in the summer, it’s important to find a base that allows your skin to breathe.
This is a problem as many foundations are affected by the heat, are not waterproof and clog pores.
However for some women going ‘bare-faced’ is not an option and they still want flawless coverage in the summer time.
Recently I discovered a unique foundation named Oxygenetix, which is not only sweat-proof and water-resistant, it also allows the skin to breathe during the summer.
Unlike most bases I’ve used which claim to do the same thing, it also provides flawless coverage and lasts the entire day without suffocating your skin.
The prime ingredient in the product is pro-healing, patent-pending Ceravitae, a super charged oxygen complex that promotes collagen cell production and connective tissue growth in ageing and wounded skin.
This is perfect for holidays, festival weekends or those days when you want to give your skin a break from makeup.

Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser, £30


I’VE rarely been a fan of tinted moisturisers, particularly because I struggle to find one to suit my skin.
But with summer finally here, I’ve started looking for something with a bit more lightweight coverage.
This HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser by Clarins is perfect for those who suffer from dry or dull-looking skin.
As well as boosting hydration, it also delivers a double-radiance boosting action, leaving the skin with a gorgeous glow.
It doesn’t offer a lot of coverage but is great for those who want a really natural base with an added boose.
After applying this I noticed it minimised the look of imperfections and made my skin look really healthy.
Another bonus is that it contains SPF15, protecting you from harmful rays and giving a youthful complexion.
