All about that base — flawless foundation for a dewy winter glow

Guys, it’s official, summer is over. The temperature has dropped and the layering has begun (the layering of clothing, that is). Jack Frost will be rolling through with the chills and when it’s not pouring, the air is viciously dry. An extra large daily dose of moisturiser is inevitable and the last thing we want is a dry canvas with flaky foundation. So in order for you not to sacrifice a glow for some coverup, we’ve rounded up a few flawless face-savers to keep you hydrated and dewy come wintertime.
