HALLE-BLOOMIN’-LUJAH! It looks as if the sun has finally come out to play. And while we’ve been actively updating our ’drobes, our makeup often doesn’t get the memo. But the warmer temperatures cause our sweat glands to kick into action, and a heavy foundation is not gonna go down well with our pores. That’s why switching from a heavier coverage to a lighter base is the way forward in the summer. In other words: less is more.

Revolution Pro Foundation Mixer

With the sun comes a change in our skin tone. But constantly adding new foundations to our collection can get pretty costly and when you’ve found a foundation that’s the one and only one for you, why change it? Enter these nifty lil mixers, which allow you to customise your base. Too light? Whack in a couple of drops of the darkening mixer. Fell in love and bought a foundation when you were a couple of shades darker? Just drop in some lightening mixer. We’re SO on board with this.
