My 2015 Summer Bases





So the weather is warming up and it's actually showing signs of ACTUAL summer! Can you believe it? Nope, but Im sure we'll go back to it being horrible and rainy in just a few days!

I've been aware of the iconic Estee Lauder Day Wear for a long time but it took me a while to get around to trying it. It's a super high SPF primer/base type deal which protects the skin from the elements and harmful UV rays. Boasting a impressive mix of antioxidants, repairing ingredients, and cell-communicating ingredients this is a base worth trying out over the summer months. The lightweight lotion texture works well under makeup too so makes it a really lovely summer base.

MAC Face and Body has been my summer foundation of choice for ages. It's a lovely lightweight water based foundation that can be sheer or built up if you need more coverage. On me it lasts all day, keeps my skin looking fresh and dewy and just gives a my skin but better feel to my skin. I champion this foundation most year's so it's no surprise it was high up on my list of repurchases this year!

  1. As soon as I run out of my current base, I’m going to pick up the Day Wear from EL. It sounds great and just the type of base I’m after.

  4. I've always been really curious to try out MAC face and body but I normally like my skin products to look matte. And I mean matte! Haha :)

  7. I've been eyeing up the Face and Body foundation for a while.. Especially in the smaller bottles! For some reason I imagine it being oily in texture which put me off because my skin is combination so I'm glad to hear it's water-based! I think I will have to visit MAC...

  14. Face and Body used to be my FAVOURITE summer base, but I could never go through the huge bottle. I might give it another go now they make it in a smaller size!

  22. I love Face and Body so, so much! The person who colour matched me didn't do the best job, but the formula is so thin and lovely that it is still so easy to work with and looks normal once powdered. x

  38. Definitely going to have to pick up the EL day wear when i get paid next as i like the idea of it having a high SPF which protects your face from the sun. My skin gets ridiculously dry in summer and could really do with something like this! thank you for your help!
