Does anyone else scroll through their Instagram and look at all these gorgeous, glowing supermodel types and immediately want what they are wearing on their skin? Well the good news is, thanks to the rise in popularity these foundations are readily available on pretty much every counter and from every brand out there. The problem is, which ones are best? As a self confessed make up obsessive, you just know I have them tried and tested so read on for my top picks for Summer 2018.
Chanel Vitalumiere, £40
A beautifully hydrating makeup that boasts 8 hours wear to keep you looking fresh all day. This foundation is a staple for that gorgeous Summery make up and even though it’s classed as a medium coverage it is so easily manipulated to sit lighter or even fuller if needs be. With my redness in my skin it’s always an issue that that won’t be covered but with the colour correcting pigments infused inside that’s never an issue. With hyaluronic acid and an SPF15 this is sure to become a favourite in your Summer makeup bag. On the pricier side, I save this for thee most special events!
Nars Sheer Glow, £33
One of the first brands I saved up all my money for from my part time job and spent a clean fortune in Space NK was NARS. Among that make up splurge I found myself purchasing this foundation as I was drawn in by the allure of perfect light coverage. It’s amazingly natural and gives a sheer but buildable finish. Packed full of anti-oxidents it will protect your skin while making you look and feel amazing. Something to note however, there is no SPF in it so if you are someone who likes added protection make sure you have sun protection in your moisturiser.
Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder, £32
My all time favourite foundation for beautiful, dewy skin. I keep this as my kind of ‘day off’ style foundation for days where I am not doing an overly adventurous make up as it gives the effect of flawless skin without feeling like you are wearing anything. This foundation is so versatile and still surprises me how much coverage I can get out of it as it is extremely buildable. With a light, blendable and creamy texture it goes on like a dream no matter what your application technique and remains effortlessly glowy throughout the day. Not only all of that but with an SPF15 you skin is sure to be protected all day.

Armani Luminous Silk, £42
A silky, lightweight formula that glides on to the skin with seamless coverage that blends beautifully to give healthy, natural and glowing skin. It sits comfortably on the skin but I do find however that I always need to use a powder to stop it moving around but that doesn’t bother me as I tend to use powder anyway. When my skin is feeling a little dull this is what I tend to use as it instantly brightens and lifts the complexion, perfect if you haven’t caught as many zzz’s as you would like.
L’Oreal Paris True Match, £9.99
I have spoken about this foundation before on my blog and on social media but it’s appearing again because I use it so so often. It gives just enough luminosity without looking too shiny as the day goes on. It’s a seriously blendable foundation that leaves no streaks or patchiness and is so comfortable to wear that it doesn’t feel like you are wearing much at all.
