Any advice?

I don't like to wear foundation on holidays but want something to even out my skin tone. I have yellow toned skin and normally wear Loreal infallible in golden sun.

Thanks whatyousee - how does it hold out in hot climates? I'm off to Cyprus and the temperatures are high! I don't want to look caked in make up or wear something that'll just slide off!

I use bb every day too, much lighter than foundation.

Nars tinted moisturiser works well for me. Very lightweight feel.

Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturiser, it's the best thing since sliced bread, so much so that I very rarely wear foundation anymore.

Although I must warn you, Laura Mercier is like crack, once you've started it's hard to stop and you find yourself buying more and more, it's really bloody good make up.

I wear Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser smile. However, when on holiday I wear Boots No 7 protect and perfect BB cream - comes in factor 30 or 50. The only reason I switch when on holiday is because you can keep reapplying it through out the day. Is suncream but with coverage!

I think if you can, it's worth testing some out a bit before you commit - I was using the L'oreal Skin Perfection BB cream and it was perfect - great coverage, very natural on my skintone, and light enough that I wore it all last summer with no melting. Accidentally switched to the Garnier recently and it's way too dry for me, and ends up looking oddly flaky, and the shade isn't quite right either. But when you find the right one, it is a great replacement for foundation, especially when you need a lighter alternative for the heat.
