The experts: The best foundation for summer
Casting off the heavier coverage of winter make-up may feel a bit daunting before summer proper actually arrives, but as the sun begins to put in a more regular appearance, now is the time to wean oneself off the full-strength stuff.
Lancôme builds on the popularity of the skin-improving formula of its Visionnaire foundation by introducing a dual product to the range in which a tone-matched concealer comes as part of the package (£36, Teint Visionnaire, available nationwide).
The new Nearly Naked collection from Revlon is built around two products in a range of shades: a lightweight liquid foundation and a finely-milled, pressed powder compact (from £7.99, Nearly Naked, available nationwide), both of which contain hollow silica pigments to gently diffuse light without creating too dewy a look.
Velvet is one of the design signatures of Dolce & Gabbana's ready-to-wear collections, and now it's inspiration for the much-lauded beauty collection from the brand. Although these new matte finish foundations and concealers (from £25, Perfect Matte, harrods.com) provide coverage that is on the heavier end of the spectrum, the soft-to-touch finish makes them just right for right now.
