My have incredibly sensitive and dry but dull skin. I need a super moisturising foundation (or base of any kind) with a brightening effect. I currently mix a Lancombe brightening primer with a bobby brown serum foundation. Running out of primer though.... so thinking about starting afresh.

Any recommendations? I want fresh dewy skin!!

Pleased I'm not the only one!! On my wedding day my make up artist used the Neil's yard rose face balm and bare mineral powder foundation. I loved it so much that I bought the whole lot.... but I can't get the balance right, it just looks dry and flakey.

Has anyone tried the Liz Earle foundations??

i use british nanny by lush (i buy it when it's in their kitchen), then use an avon BB cream. then bare minerals just on areas that need it followed by light layer of shimmery powder

Bourjois CC cream is amazzzzzzzzzzzzzzing! I normally opt for high coverage foundation but this is a CC cream that I use as foundation because it really is THAT good. Tube lasts about 6 months too. Fabulous to blend as well. Love it

Ah yes I've seen that one. I used to love Clinique's CC cream but this could be a good alternative

I like the NSpa BB cream for everyday as it is one of the few things that doesn't go powdery and clumpy on me

Garnier BB cream is amazing but you must get the combinations skin one as it is more liquid and just brilliant!

british nanny is a moisturiser BEYOND moisturisers but it is discontinues. Hence why I buy it from the kitchen on Lush's website. It has SPF too.
