SS16 Foundations: Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

Besides the lipsticks, the other makeup product almost every brand is bringing out for SS16 is  foundation. And while cushions and foundations with the dropper  (BECCA, Stila, Kiko Armani, Rouge Bunny Rouge etc) are having a real moment this season, “classic” foundations are still going strong.

And here are three that caught my attention with the official description:

SS16 Foundations Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

Chanel LES BEIGESHealthy Glow Foundation (£36 from Selfridges)

“An invisible foundation that creates a natural healthy glow by giving skin the radiance of a day spent outdoors, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The perfection of a natural glow. With a range of subtle, easy-to-wear beiges, CHANEL’s Healthy Glow Foundation frees women from their fears of using foundation and gives every skin tone a lasting healthy glow. The soft and comfortable texture glides over the skin and melts away. The texture becomes imperceptible and allows the skin to breathe freely, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The complexion is evened-out and enhanced with a sheer finish.”
