Charlotte Tilbury has answered fans’ prayers with a new foundation so sheer that it’s perfect to wear in summer. The brand’s new is a hydrating foundation stick, which is available in 20 shades for a sheer-to-light yet buildable coverage.

Usually if you’re searching for lightweight make-up for summer your only option is to rely on liquid-based products such as CC creams and tinted moisturisers, but this did not disappoint.

The  is not the only one on the market that offers skin-feel foundation, which is loved by Margot Robbie, also masters the technique of glow. The blend of minerals and Japanese ingredient extracts offers three layers of glow – from a moisture-rich instant glow to a transparent, natural glow developed over time.
