VLB's Glow-To Foundations

chanel les beiges foundation armani foundation review best foundations

In keeping with the clocks going forward, lighter nights and the teeniest glimmer of Spring/Summer in the distance, I thought I would give you a run down of my favourite get-the-glow bases.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation - We all know Chanel gives me LIFE. The latest offering from the Les Beiges line is no different. Now, the colours are a little "off" for me but I can make it work. This gives more of a radiance than a dew(?!) on the skin. It feels extremely light on the skin with a satin finish. Ideal for those who are a little oilier but don't want a flat matte formulation. It looks awesome with a dusting of bronzer & a little Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder. Kudos to the whole branding of that line btw - Gisele - ugh, dreamy.

Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow - "Nourishing fusion makeup" mmm. This stuff is divine. I really didn't get along with the original Maestro foundation, it was drying and seriously oxidised on me so, I looked like a runaway oompah lumpah. However, the recently launched Maestro glow is something else. This packs some serious glow with buildable coverage, doesn't oxidise on the skin and just looks fresh. It feels so comfortable to wear - but for those with excess oil issues you may feel it to be a little much. If this is a little too dewy for you, a small amount of powder will dial it down. If it was acceptable to bathe in this stuff, I would. Ain't nobody got time for matte.

Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint - Definitely a one for the holiday tan fake tan days. The bronzi-est of the bunch with a satin/demi-matte finish. The cult Guerlain Terracotta line have designed this foundation to act like skincare but gives a glowing, bronze coverage. Throughout the day, it gradually seems to bronze your face without looking like a deep shade of Fanta. Pretty cool concept. One thing to be aware of is that the shades are dark. Go lighter than what you think you should and you're on to a winner. You could say it's glowing on me - I'll stop now.
