Clinique Make Up For Lost Time

I’m not always very good at getting ready on time, I like to spend an extra 10 minutes in the bath and catch up on YouTube videos. I then panic 15 minutes before I have to leave the house because I still need to get dressed, dry my hair and do my makeup. I then spend 10 minutes trying to find my hair dryer, deciding what to wear and working out which makeup products I can get on the quickest whilst still hoping to look presentable.

Luckily Clinique have a new foundation to help me when I spend a little too much time relaxing in the morning. The new Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Primer is the perfect 2-in-1 product for days when I need to get ready quickly but don’t want to compromise on finish and coverage. 

I can apply it quickly with either my fingers or even the doe foot applicator and then go back in under my eyes and on any blemishes as a concealer. It covers everything really well without feeling heavy and the lightweight formula means it works particularly well under the eyes. 

It blends easily and creates a flawless canvas whilst the breathable formula with dual-sphere particles absorb excess oils and add hydration depending on what the skin requires. I’m really impressed that I can apply this without much thought about moisturisers and powders, without having to worry about it clinging to dry patches or becoming too oily. 

The applicator is unlike any other which I have seen and the doe foot means I can apply dots of foundation on the face quickly and blend it in. I then go back to cover any smaller imperfections and achieve the amount of coverage I want. 

My favourite thing about this foundation is the finish, I love that I can easily achieve a flawless complexion which last all day but is still quite natural and demi-matte. 

The new Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer is out now for £25 from Clinique. I wear shade 7 Cream Chamois and spend far too much time relaxing in the morning. 

For skin beyond flawless. That lasts all day.

    This looks great! Your skin is flawless anyway 🙂 I think I might have to buy me some of this! I'm going on holiday to Mexico later this year and it will be too hot for my heavy MAC Pro Longwear foundation in the evenings so I've been looking for something not too heavy but quick and easy to use, thanks so much! xx
