Gym bag beauty #4: Brightening bases





Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm is a great option when you’re wearing minimal make up. It smooths and illuminates the skin without tackiness or too much dewiness. A slick of this followed by some well-placed concealer will quickly hide imperfections.

Revlon Photoready Eye Primer & Brightener will balance out any under-eye discolouration which makes applying concealer much quicker and in some cases not even necessary. Acts as a primer for your make up which means less pulling around the delicate eye are and keeps foundation and concealer in place longer.

Rimmel Match Perfection Fix & Perfect Pro Primer is still one of the best high street primers in my opinion. It creates a matte base without that silicone effect (I can’t stand it!) but also smooths, hydrates and blurs impurities all for under £7. I like to use this on its own for the gym or with a touch of CC cream for quick pick me up.

Bare Minerals Original Foundation as someone who has spent years trying to find a foundation for dry, sensitive skin I can’t recommend Bare Minerals enough. The loose powder goes on lightly and buffs into a skin-like texture, with no hint of a ‘cakey’ finish like you would expect. Brimming with skincare benefits, you can create anything from natural to full coverage effect in just a few minutes. A quick buff of this at it sinks into my skin before a workout and won’t go patchy afterwards.

What are your top tips for brighter looking skin?
