available from Escentual

I have to say that one of my favourite stages of applying makeup is perfecting a flawless base. I love the process of preparing and priming the skin, selecting your choice of product and brush and starting the therapeutical process of blending, buffing and smoothing your foundation into place. I am forever mixing up my foundation routine – sometimes opting for the dewy freshness of a BB cream and other times adoring the flawless, matte finish of a heavier foundation.

My latest recruit into my army of base products is Guerlain’s Lingerie de Peau foundation which is a satin-finish liquid foundation with a medium to full coverage and some rather decadent packaging to boot. Lingerie de Peau is my first dabble into the world of Guerlian makeup and I can overwhelmingly confess, I am a fan! This foundation is beautiful and a real treat to use. At first the loose, fluid consistency of the liquid foundation worried me but as soon as I started buffing the product in I could see that you get some amazing coverage but all with the lightness and skin-like texture of a tinted moisturiser. One pump is enough to easily even out your complexion and gives you a natural, glowing finish with a coverage that can be sheered out or built up accordingly. I always seem drawn to satin finish foundations with a medium coverage and this is yet another one to add to my favourites stash. I find that I hardly need to use any concealer after applying Lingerie de Peau and with a quick dusting of powder, I feel confident that my base will stay put and shine-free throughout the working day!

    That does give you a lovely glow, good for the winter time when everything can be a bit bland!
    I have been using MAC face and body for the longest time, I want to switch it up a little soon!

    I'm glad you got it!!! It is so under-hyped and so overly amazing. I love this foundation to death. I don't think anything compares (although YSL Touche Γ‰clat is a nice runner up).
