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.

The complexion is evened-out and enhanced with a sheer finish.”
