Summer Beauty: Lightweight Face Bases

summer foundation bases

Not only have I been reaching for the lighter face moisturisers and body lotions, make up bases have also become more sheer and less heavy. During the summer, the last thing I want is make up melting off my face, so I always opt for a BB cream or a tinted moisturiser. This summer, I have tried a fair few lighter bases and I have chosen my top three to share with you today.
