Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation Review

Saturday, February 6th 2016 0

Full matte coverage

For every day of February, I'll be reviewing a different complexion product.

Day 6: Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation

Level of coverage

Completely full coverage.

Finish 

A lightweight matte finish.

Longevity 

Lasts the day really well, even without powder.

Techniques that you might need to know

This foundation is designed to be a two in one foundation and concealer. Apply your entire base with a brush, then go back over with your ring finger and pat in extra coverage where necessary.

You’ll like this if…  

– You want something to last all day at work

– You want full coverage that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin

Avoid if…

I don’t get on as well with this when my skin is feeling dry so be sure to layer a moisturiser and/or hydrating primer beforehand.

Products that work well with this 

Using a primer before this will prevent it from sitting in any fine lines or pores, especially around the t-zone. I use the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer to blur out any imperfections before using this.

Everything else I need to tell you

I wear Beyond Perfecting a lot to work because I can put it on and forget all about it. Being so matte means it requires a little extra support to give a luminous finish, so be sure to add some highlighter to the cheekbones and warm it up with some bronze and blush. Where this stands out against other full coverage foundations is that it is considerably easier to remove – one cleanse and it will all be off.

If I had to describe this foundation in one sentence…

A reliable foundation for those super busy days when you have more important things to worry about than faffing about with your make-up.

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation costs £25.00 and is available nationwide.
