So what can I wear instead? PLEASE help a new mum who looks shit.

I'm pale but not Ivory - I have pinky yellow tones and freckles. Spot prone around chin and large pores around nose.

When I've worn foundation in the last month it's looked v heavy and mask-like which I hate.
Please recommend me your best alternatives!

Also I've just had a baby so skin routine has gone out the window but I'm slowly coming back and need a good routine. Is Clinique any good?

Thank you!

Try a bb cream for a more sheer natural look. Go to Boots .lots and lots of brands offer it. Clinique does a version too.

I've just started with chantecaille's Just Skin tinted moisturiser. As someone who finds even tinted moisturiser too heavy at times, I love this - it doesn't feel like you're wearing anything at all. It only gives light coverage, tho. Not cheap either. But lovely.

I love Liz Earle for a good cleanse/tone/moisturise skin routine. I started with her cleanse and polish, which comes with a muslin cloth and really feels like your skin has been cleaned properly. I progressed to trying different moisturisers and now have settled on her superskin one with neroli. The spray on toner is lovely and I never go without it now.
At night I love using the superskin concentrate. It's really 'botanical' smelling and is my last thing to do before bed.
I barely wore makeup at all and tried a couple of different bb creams etc, but they never matched my skin properly and were always obvious. I'm so glad I got up the courage to go to the Bobbi Brown counter at John Lewis and got my foundation colour matched properly. I have been using quite a sheer foundation called Intensive Skin Serum foundation, which looks like skin and gives quite a dewy complexion.
I would honestly go and get your foundation matched! Made a big difference for me.
Sorry for essay, I am not much of a beauty products tart but tried a lot before I settled on these ones.
