Apply a lightweight moisturiser that keeps working all day for optimum hydration - let it sink in whilst you eat breakfast. I’m a big fan of Clarins Hydraquench - Normal to Dry at £35.00 which is designed for dehydrated skin. If you have combination skin then a great budget buy is Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Moisturiser at£4.27.
For long lasting make up a primer is a must. If you can apply one on after moisturiser your skin will reap the benefits and your make up will last longer. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer at £29.00 is an industry favourite and comes in oil-free and hydrating formulas depending on your skin type.
For a longer lasting make up look the secret is to apply thin layers as opposed to a thick application.
If you have great skin then why cover it with a heavy base? Tinted moisturisers let your skin breathe - I’m a fan of Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturiser - Oil free at £34.00. If you prefer a little more coverage then an alternative is Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Even Finish Foundation at £31.00 which caters for all skin shades and is also an oil free formulation.
