How To: The Summer Foundation

If you caught some British sun, absorbed some Mediterranean rays or have simply been slapping on the Garnier gradual tan, you may find that your old foundations are washing you out and giving you reverse oompa loompa face, AKA, Ghost Face. And after coming back skint due to a holiday/spending your pennies on ice creams or got into your overdraft due to the summer limited edition items from Charlotte Tilbury and Tom Ford, the prospect of forking out more money on a new foundation may make you want to weep. So, I came up with a cheaper alternative to bronzing up your base and tweaking the shade of the foundations you own so that you always have the perfect match.


A little while ago, the Bourjois Bronzing Primer was released and I'm quite confident that a lot of you will own this product already. If you don't, then I recommend you get it. The Bronzing Primer really shouldn't be used as a primer, it should be mixed in with your foundation before applying it to the face. Depending on your tan, you can customise the colour as you see fit. The best part is? The primer has a very silky feel and dries to a velvet finish. The silky texture means that it mixes with most foundations and doesn't alter the way that it applies on the skin. The finish of your foundation may become slightly more velvet, depending on the ratio of foundation to primer. The best part? It will continue to be completely customisable so whilst your tan is fading, you will always have foundation that matches your perfectly.

Do you have a summer foundation? Or do use the bronzer mixing method?
