Since properly inspired by make-up from the age of 16, my teenage skin made no allowances for any foundation with any less coverage than that supplied by 'Studio fix fluid' from Mac. Since my make-up routine as evolved, I tend to wear less product on my face.
On days when I have a few lectures, or a library day planned, I have recently been wearing nothing other on my skin than the ESPA 'Tinted moisturiser'* The radiant formula contains SPF 15, sunflower seed concentrate, white lupin, hyraluronic acid and mineral pigments to keep the face nourished whilst applying a hint of colour.
I have the shades 03 Almond and 02 Blush which suit my skin perfectly without with or without fake tan. I apply the formula with the warmth of my fingers after cleansing and toning my face, the coverage is sheer but balances out imperfections and redness in the skin.
