Summer Stars: Best Foundation - Rimmel Match Perfection
With summer sadly drawing to a close I thought I would do a new Blog series on my 'Summer Stars', my favourite beauty products from this summer. Up first is foundation, and this favourite has remained a true star for most of this year...Rimmel’s Match Perfection.
This beautiful foundation has a light to medium coverage, making it perfect for this time of year when you want a more natural looking base when your skin is at its best. It provides a healthy glow whilst not being over dewy. It is suitable for most skin types, however you may need to powder if you have oily skin due to the formulation.
It looks natural, slightly blurring imperfections so it is great for those with skin confidence or anyone just wanting a light weight base product. This does mean those with blemishes are probably going to need a good concealer.
Having combination skin, it is often hard to completely fall in love with a foundation as most products either suit dry skin or oily skin, but don’t cater for my complicated needs. This works perfectly with my dry patches and for my oily t-zone it just needs a touch of powder to keep it in place throughout the day. A huge bonus for me is that it also comes in a light enough shade range for my pale Irish skin (I have been using 010 Light Porcelain).
Sticking to the summer theme this foundation has an SPF18 which is always great, but probably not enough for the summer sun so as I would recommend with any base product you may need a separate SPF. At €9.95 for 30ml it is an amazing quality product for the prize.
