Let’s start with the foundation- their new Les Beiges Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation (with mine being in shade 20). If like me you’re after radiant ~lit from within~ skin (I think that’s what beauty ed’s call a real glow) than let me introduce you to this little gem. With it’s consistency being over half water based (and with an excellent, non heavy SPF coverage of 25)- it’s the ultimate non-greasy light foundation. It’s definitely one for good skin days (although it won’t do a tonne for blemishes, it will aid dark circles) and I’ve found it perfect for warm days where I’m after a little coverage that doesn’t feel at all matte or heavy. Paired with concealer on days where a little extra help is needed, it’s truly a gorgeous summer foundation, and layered with their
Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Powder make for a total power pair.
Another new-in from the brand I’ve been loving is their Les Beiges Blush (a cream blush stick) in no 24. If I’m going for a more matte foundation, this creamy blush is perfect for adding a bit of glow and a rosy flush to a thicker base- and also acts as a wonderful guise if you haven’t quite managed to catch any natural colour either (but I won’t tell if you won’t). I recently saw my friend Lucy recommend applying a little to your nose for a true natural sun-kissed look and I’ve been loving giving that a go with this too.
To add to the perfect summer collection- their corally pink polishes (particularly Coquillage and Coralium) also are the most beautiful compliments to a sun kissed look, and are the perfect middle ground between a tangerine and pink shade- dreamy!
Finally- I have to mention their Chanel Three Moods gel perfumes, which are pretty a-mazing indeed. Coming in three handbag sized pots, these small shimmering gels are scented like their perfumes- but apply as a gel cream- meaning you can add it to your shoulders, décolletage or neck for a subtle glow with the most beautiful scent too. I know I’ll be taking it for evenings out after long days in the sunshine (and keeping one in my bag too)…
