Foundation and Concealer 2 in 1

Whether it's for lasting all day at work, lasting all night for a party or simply because you want to feel really 'done', sometimes the only way to go with your foundation is full coverage.

Clinique’s latest offering is one of my favourite full-coverage foundations yet, largely for two reasons: it is super easy to apply and doesn’t take an awful lot of effort to remove.

Beyond Perfecting is a foundation and concealer in one, and comes in a very pleasing 20 shades. I’ve mentioned before how surprised I am at the amount of brands that simply don’t cover the full spectrum when it comes to accounting for all skin tones, and to see such a huge brand creating 20 shades is a big step in the right direction. The claim is that it delivers “all of the coverage, none of the weight” and I’ve found that to be completely true.

So how does it work? The applicator is a large fluffy wand (think of a typical lip gloss wand but bigger) and Clinique encourage applying this in dots then buffing out. Personally I’ve found this to work really well with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. It helps to create a really soft, flawless finish and ensure that everything is evenly spread without looking too heavy. Then, go back over with your wand and add a little touch of extra coverage to any blemishes, patting these in with your finger so as not to move the product too much.

I’ve worn this both for a long shift at work and a night out. Work wise, the oil-free formula has meant that I don’t have to powder my face through the day, and night out wise this photographs beautifully because it doesn’t contain an SPF.

Clinique is one of my favourite brands but their foundations aren’t normally for me. Beyond Perfecting has completely changed that – I love it.

Beyond Perfecting is now available at all major department stores for £25.00 so go and try before you buy: www.selfridges.co.uk
