As the seasons change, so does my foundation routine, well usually it does. Over the last three months I think I've found the perfect combination for any season using Charlotte Tilbury's foundations.
Originally I only used the Magic Foundation, as in the winter months I prefer my skin to be fuller coverage and have a semi-matte finish. However when I bought the Wonderglow in January everything changed. As spring arrived I wanted my skin the reflect the season, fresh and bright.This has been achieved by adding Wonderglow to my routine.
Currently for a full face I use two pumps of Charlotte Tilburys Magic Foundation and then add one pea size amount of the Wonderglow and mix. I've found by combining the two together, it slightly lowers the coverage of the foundation but adds such a natural glow to the skin. The combination of the two makes the foundation look like glowing skin whilst covering imperfections and balancing uneven patches flawlessly.
I've found for the most natural application of the foundation, I use my damp beauty blender. I first apply the foundation in spots onto my face, making me look like a big dot-to dot. Ive found the perfect amount for my face is around five spots on each cheek, seven smaller dots for the forehead, two the for nose, three for the chins and one for each temple...phew. Once this is complete I go in with the beauty blender and stipple the product into the skin. However if you seek a lighter coverage id apply the products with fingers to sheer out the product. To ensure the foundation stays in place all day I like to set it with a few sprays of M.A.C Fix+.
I've found this foundation combination has a high durability lasting a clear eight hours on my skin with no signs of caking or movement.Therefore this combination will be a perfect choice for girls on the go. The only downside being due to the packaging of the Magic Foundation being frosted glass, it makes the foundation less travel friendly. So if you like taking some product with you I would highly recommend de-cantering some product into a pot or empty compact. Overall I've really been enjoying this combination of foundation and will continue to wear it for the forthcoming warmer months.
