I’ve talked about Clarins foundations a few times on my YouTube Channel, particularly their Skin Illusion Liquid Foundation. I’m not usually one for powder or mineral foundations for some reason, so this often gets forgotten in favour of creme or liquids. I don’t know why, because whenever I apply it I fall in love all over again, so for the last couple of weeks I’ve kept it on my dressing table and not stashed away. I love the luxurious yet practical packaging, the brush in the lid is perfect for touch-ups or travel, but on an everyday basis I use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush which buffs and blends this into my skin perfectly.

A slick of concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes set with this means I don’t have to touch up during the day and I have enough coverage but my skin still shows through. If you haven’t tried loose mineral foundations before or if like me you tend to reach for your liquid products merely out of habit, this might be one to try. It also smells amazing!

Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder retails for £28. Find out more here.
