This time of year is a difficult transitional period for foundation. Your winter foundations are too pale and making you look washed out, your summer foundations are are little too tantastic for spring and it is a little early to dust off the tinted moisturiser… so whats a girl to do?
Now of course you can use the age old tip of mixing two foundations together to achieve the perfect shade, though we find some foundations don’t mix awfully well…i.e matte + dewy, heavy + light, oil based + water based etc. Instead we recommend that you pick up Barry M Foundation Creme in White (£6.19) and use it to tone down your darker summer shades.
This foundation creme is actually coloured white, meaning it won’t just water down your foundation like a moisturiser, it will actually lighten it to your desired shade depending on how much you add. The formula is creamy and moisturising but other than that it’s pretty much a blank canvas, allowing you to create your perfect colour match without taking anything away from your chosen foundation.
This foundation is also great for those who are pale and interesting and find even the lightest foundation shade from many brands is still to dark for their skin.
Coming in way under £10 this little gem is a sure fire affordable way of customising your foundations! Pick it up from the Barry M website here.
