Foundation Friday: Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder

It's no surprise that I'm a big fan of anything Charlotte Tilbury releases, her FilmStar Bronze & Glow is amazing, I love her Dolce Vita palette and the Lip Cheat lip liners are some of the best on the market.

I'd been looking for a lightweight, dewy foundation to wear on "good skin days" and decided to give this little one a try. 

What Mrs Tilbury as to say about it!
I’ve created the holy grail of foundations… An air-light formula with wonder powers: it illuminates, smoothes, hydrates, minimises pores and reduces wrinkles for perfect skin. When it comes to foundation, I have one simple rule: perfect coverage in a light-weight formula. Eyes can be intense, lips can be full on, but your complexion should be seamless, breathable and beautiful. It’s one of my 7 wonders for your skin!

• This innovative technology breathes a diaphanous veil of youth-enhancing tint across your complexion, evening out imperfections and moisturising the skin. It’s like a halo effect of luminosity and colour.
• A pool of youth-boosting actives helps reduce wrinkles, fight uneven skin tone and smooth over the surface for a “baby-skin effect”.
• A botanical alternative to retinol stimulates epidermal renewal by kick-starting collagen production, delaying the onset of wrinkles and creating a perfect make-up base.
• SPF 15 protects skin from UV damage.
• Pseudo-ceramides hydrate your skin for up to 18 hours.
• For dry, normal, combination skin types.

This foundation gives skin that "Victoria Secret supermodel glow" skin looks lit from within and is almost imperceptible on the skin. The coverage is light but it somehow manages to cover everything it needs to without looking cakey or heavy. 
I normally find dewy foundations feel heavy on the skin but this one doesn't, it feel light but at the same time hydrating and actually feels like it's doing some good to my skin. 
I find application is best using a stippling brush and building up coverage in thin layers, a light dusting of powder over the top ensures that the foundation lasts all day. 
I picked up shade 7 which initially I thought might be too dark but it matches my tanned skin perfectly, obviously I will have to pick up a lighter shade for the colder months. 
If your looking for the perfect summer foundation this might be the one!
