BEAUTY

3 FACE-SAVING SPF FOUNDATIONS

By Caroline Ferry, 24 March 2018

The season of eternal optimism (and hay fever) has arrived, so it feels like the right time to think about a new foundation. As the weather warms you might want to switch to a lighter-coverage product, but also, the need for SPF is even more real in the coming months. All three of these foundations have 20+ SPF, so you can rest assured that even if you get just a 10-minute Pret jaunt at lunchtime, your face will be in good hands, whatever your beauty budget.

The point of this product is that while it lasts all day long (25 hours to be weirdly precise), it has been formulated to let your skin breathe. This helps prevent clogged pores, breakouts, you name it. And all 14 shades come with that glorious SPF 20 protection too.

MAC launched on ASOS last week and we are pumped to say the least. This foundation is a double winner: not only does it provide lovely even coverage, it also has something called a Moisture-Fusion Complex, which in layman's terms means it instantly hydrates your skin. It holds the hydration all day too, and with 18 shades to choose from, it's a win-win.

Splurge

Protecting your visage from UV rays is important not only to prevent sun damage, but also to keep premature ageing at bay, and this guy packs a punchy SPF 30 protection. From super scientific brand Perricone MD, the foundation contains Alpha Lipoic Acid which helps prevent cell damage (from sun, pollution etc) while also minimising the appearance of fine lines and pores. It is spenny, yes, but man does it work hard for that money.
