Perfect Foundation with Clinique


Clinique & I go back a long way. I bought my first bottle of Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer back in 1986 & when all the other makeup artists of that era were piling on Beauty Cake, I had my precious collection of the original Balanced liquid Makeup in my kit. For some reason Clinique has always suited me personally & professionally. I love the clean & simple packaging, the absence of strong fragrance & most of all I love how the product really works.

Last week Clinique invited me to an exclusive Influencers event, where we were treated to a divinely healthy lunch box whilst being shown the extensive range of Clinique foundations that are currently on offer. My latest foundation of choice is the brilliant Even Better Glow a light reflecting liquid base that covers beautifully whilst still letting the natural texture of the skin shine through. I use this foundation for most of my work & there seems to be a colour for everyone, however Clinique have just extended the range to now include even more dark & light colours. I highly recommend this product as it is effective enough to cover red veins & pigmentation while never feeling (or looking) heavy. You can use Even Better Glow over your moisturizer to create a finish as light as a CC cream, or you can build it up for a fuller coverage- it also contains as SPF15 for extra protection & as with all Clinique makeup it is formulated to suit sensitive skin.

As well as this star foundation there are also several others to choose from in the Clinique range:

  • The Original Even Better still has a place in my kit- this base is slightly thicker with a much creamier texture (Even Better Glow is very ‘liquid’). Its excellent to conceal dark spots & you can keep on building it up for a full dewy coverage.
  • Beyond Perfecting  is altogether different as its a foundation & concealer in one so this is the ideal product for women who feel naked without a face of makeup. The best thing about this base is that despite the very full (& perfect) coverage, it never looks heavy or cakey & with a light dusting of powder you can create a flawless canvas.
  • Then there is the original Super Balanced silk makeup with an ultra fluid texture & moderate coverage. It works to balance the skin & control oil while also hydrating. Super Balanced is brilliant all round makeup base & if you feel confused about what to buy you literally cant go wrong with this product.

So how do you choose a colour? Its easier than you think… Firstly always test foundation on your face rather than on your hand as the skin will be a entirely different tone. Choose a few shades that look about right for your colouring & blend a little along your jawline- the foundation that you dont see will be the right one for you. In the summer its OK to warm up your foundation just a tad as your face will invariably be browner than your body. I recommend that everyone has at least two shades in their makeup bag- light for winter & warmer for summer, that way you can mix them together between seasons. The best things about modern foundations is that they are actually good for your skin, hydrating & protecting along with all the other benefits. Thanks Clinique x
