Over the summer I got pretty brown, so I had to hit up Sephora for a darker foundation. Lacome is easily my favorite foundation, so I picked up this, and oh my word people, it’s insane. What I love about Lancome is it is foundation – without feeling like foundation! You don’t even know you’re wearing it! It goes on smooth and then dries into a powder-smooth finish. It stays on ALL DAY, and has complete coverage! OH! And it’s SPF 15. LOVE IT!!
What it is:
A perfecting foundation with 24-hour staying power.
What it does:
This velvety smooth foundation blends effortlessly for shine-free, round-the-clock comfort. Retouching throughout the day is unnecessary with this expert formula, which took Lancome eight years of research to perfect and unveil. Available in an impressively wide range of shades, Teint Idole Ultra 24H provides all skintones flawless, even, complexion-perfecting coverage.

Two fabulous stretches that help to release the tension of the day or wake your face up in the morning – The Lioness and The Scream. The Scream is your morning yoga – and on some mornings when you look in the mirror a scream might just come quite naturally! And the Lioness is such a deep and relaxing way to end the day – you may just give your grinding teeth a deep sleep at night. These are like mini yoga for the face. Sometimes you can see how people hold a lot of stress in their faces – these two stretches will really help to relax your hard working face so you look more invigorated and energised.
