Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation


Have you noticed how already the light’s just starting to change...? And before long, if you’re wearing a heavier, velvet-finish foundation it’ll start to look a little too much? (Note: your windows will probably also appear filthy, for the same reason!) Just launched in their brilliant Les Beiges collection, this foundation is just perfect for the seasonal shift – and harnesses light in its own clever way, harnessing optical science via something they call a ‘Healthy Glow Booster’. Which translates as: soft focus powders and ‘a fresh and rosy halo’, as they put it.

There happens to be an SPF25 but we wouldn’t set too much store by that since nobody ought to be applying this all over their face. Importantly, there are 14 shades so pretty much everyone’s guaranteed a decent match.

It’s basically a ‘you-look-well’ foundation: lightweight, nicely moisturising and easy-to-apply for a second-skin finish.

Just what spring skin needs, in fact.
