With the new season upon us, is it time your make up bag had a spring clean? From high end to drug store products, there’s plenty to consider when choosing a new flawless foundation to best match your skin to achieve that summer glow. Here are several, new and old foundations, concealers and BB creams sure to spice up your make up bag.


If you’re opting for a lighter look this spring, perhaps a BB cream would be a good choice. The Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream is certainly a staple piece. Whilst still maintaining coverage, the light formula applies and blends easily with an SPF of 30 to protect your skin from the heat, ideal for those who prefer a more natural look, without the stress of make up melting off your face. The water gel formula leaves skin hydrated all day.

If you are forever struggling to find a foundation to match your skin tone, look no more as Rihanna’s much loved foundation is available in 50 shades, perfect if you’re searching for something to match your spring glow.


Although rather costly, as the Fenty Beauty PRO FILT’R is priced at £27, it is worth every penny. This is definitely a must have in any make up bag this upcoming season. The medium to full coverage is perfect for hiding any blemishes or spots from exam stress, or for those who prefer a more built up look. When shopping for foundation on a budget, there are plenty of drug store options perfect to shake up your make up bag this spring, for years on end I’ve turned to Max Factor during the warmer weather.

The Facefinity all day flawless foundation has never failed to give me that extra glow without looking too patchy. Its thin formula allows you to build-up sheer to full coverage lasting the whole day. Working as a primer, concealer and foundation, it’s perfect for those rushed to do their make up in the morning whilst looking for a flawless touch.

Although, if you’re planning to treat your face this Spring, there are plenty of high-end products, such as ‘Peach Perfect’ by Too Faced. Whilst a rather pricey contender at £27, this matte foundation is sure to give that bronzed summer glow without clogging up your pores. Its smooth texture gives a medium coverage without that caked appearance. Not only this but it smells of peach and sweet fog milk. What more could you ask for? From morning to noon, this brand can always be relied upon to deliver.

If liquid foundation isn’t your forte, powder foundation may be for you, with less mess and stress it applies easily, enabling you to build up coverage whilst maintaining a more natural look than that of a foundation, a particular favourite being Bare Minerals. The light-weight foundation is perfect for those who regularly top up make-up on the go. The powder applies effortlessly without drying up your face. When it comes to concealer, the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer is a must have this spring. With a wide range of colours sure to match your skin tone, this creamy formula easily glides onto skin, perfect for covering the worse of eye bags. At a very reasonable price, it’s the perfect size to chuck into any handbag for times of need. The medium coverage is sure to hide any unwanted blemishes on the worst of days.

Whether you’re looking to try something new or fancy mixing up your make up bag, these must haves are perfect to freshen up for the spring.
