These barely-there bases will make you look naturally flawless

If you’re looking for make up that makes you look, well, just like you but less tired, less blotchy, less spotty, less… ‘meh’, then call off your quest for the perfect foundation ’cause {Too Faced} have come to the rescue (as per). Their brilliant {Born This Way} range grants a second-skin finish – ensuring complexion perfection (that goes undetected). No caking, no streaks, no tidelines… this line-up of demi-matte, featherweight formulas lends coverage to disguise your skin sins without masking your personal quirks (FREE THE FRECKLE!). In other words (as the title suggests), this brilliant edit of bases, concealers and barely-there powders will make you look naturally blessed with an envy-inducing complexion.

Now in a staggering shade range to complement almost all skin tones, the {Born This Way Foundation} is bestselling for a reason. Granting believable, ‘I just woke up like this’ flawlessness, trust this light, buildable liquid to nourish your skin as it brightens and unifies effortlessly. Providing whisper-weight coverage – you’ll feel like you’re bare faced – this nourishing blend is infused with hydrating (and line-smoothing) hyaluronic acid and coconut water, to keep your skin comfortably ‘dewy’ and beautifully plump.

Need an extra sumthin’ sumthin’? With two cover-ups to choose from, whether you opt for the {Naturally Radiant} or new (and limited!!) {Super Coverage} concealer is dependent on your biggest beauty bugbears. A light veil of blurring and brightening pigment, {Naturally Radiant} is great for the under-eye area – making light work (gettit!?) of dark circles so you look remarkably rested (even when you’ve just stepped off the red eye).

And the new, multi-tasking {Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer} is everything you could possibly want from your average concealer – and then some. Lightweight but full-coverage, this disappears boo-boos, will camouflage scars and works brilliantly for defining your cheekbones or jawline – just choose a shade marginally darker to emphasise shadows and conjure Kate Moss-worthy bone structure. Incredibly creamy and easy to blend, we’ve a 24 HOUR sneak preview before *official* launch, so get yours before best friends (or foes!) beat you to it…

The finishing touch? A light frosting of {Born This Way Setting Powder} – a silky-soft filter that ‘fixes’ your face to stop make up migration and minimise shine without trace. In one universally-flattering shade to take the guesswork out of colour-matching, this diffuses seamlessly for a ‘soft focus’ finish.
