Us girls know only too well that finding the ultimate beauty kit is a life-long mission. Finding the right balance of coverage, moisturising, not too cakey, long-lasting, fresh-looking, won’t cause break-outs or break the bank, is the holy grail of make-up. But if you’re expecting me to now say “I’ve found it!” I’m going to disappoint you. HOWEVER, I’ve found something pretty darn close. Dr Perricone is on e of those revolutionary skincare brands that was created by an actual doctor and exceptionally talented dermatologist so if anyone knows about skin, it’s him.
Although clinical make-up isn’t new, Dr Perricone have launched a No Makeup Makeup collection that infuses skincare and cosmetics together to work harmoniously with your skin. The breakthrough formulations found in No Makeup Skincare not only deliver the instant benefits of youthful colour, but over time also help to sculpt the appearance of youthful facial architecture. That’s right.

Although I was a little sceptical, I was blown away withe the results. As someone who doesn’t like to wear a lot of make-up and strives to achieve that “I’m not wearing any make-up, I just naturally glow” look, this range does that perfectly. The bronzer blends into the skin beautifully and when applied to the highest points of the face, genuinely gives a realistic sun-kissed look. The foundation and concealer are sheer and incredibly hydrating making them ideal for the warmer months. They are buildable but when your complexion looks this good, you need to step away after one application.
Thin, creamy and full of the good stuff for your skin, it brings skin back to life simply by enhancement not by covering anything up. And the result? “You look really well”, “what foundation are you wearing?”, “have you been away?” are just some of the comments I received on a daily basis and I couldn’t wax lyrical about this line anymore.
