3 Favourite Foundations and When I Use Them

Along with jeans, buying foundation can be one of the most tricky items to get right. So with that in mind I thought I would share my 3 favourite products and when I wear them. They are all from premium ranges, but I think they are worth the extra cost because they include other benefits of sun protection and treatment ingredients.

First up for days when I really only want a light coverage, with or without other makeup, my absolute favourite product and one I have mentioned many time before is Chanel CC Cream.

This is one of my Holy Grail products. It just makes my skin look smooth and flawless and has the added benefit of containing skincare and SPF. I wear it on its own, but if I want a really perfect base I also wear it under other foundations.

Other favourites from Chanel:


My next level of foundation is the By Terry Light Expert Click Illuminating Flawless Foundation. This is a step up on coverage from the Chanel CC Cream.

This one again includes anti ageing treatments for the skin, including Hyaluronic Acid which plumps out the skin and fine lines. You can apply it with the brush and it is buildable so you can go from a medium to a fuller coverage.

Finally my full coverage option for when I want a perfect, lasting finish is Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation.

Again this one contains anti ageing ingredients and sun protection. It lasts really well and doesn’t need touching up during the day without being too heavy.
