It's always a challenge to look put-together when you’re on the go from morning until evening, so when I find that perfect product that makes my skin glow I can’t help but stock up. Since I prefer not to wear foundation unless I have a big event, I’m always looking for complexion enhancers that are light weight and easy to use throughout the day. These beauty basics are true daily essentials that help you put your best face forward whether you’re heading from the gym to work or to an early dinner.
1. Lancer: Dani Glowing Skin Perfector
What’s not to love about this complexion enhancer? This light weight cream is infused with Asian botanicals that helps skin become firmer and tighter. It also balances oil production helping to mattify those annoying oily patches that pop up throughout the day. The fact that it blurs away imperfections and makes pores barely visible is the icing on the cake. A treatment and complexion enhancer all in one little tube. Yes!

2. Becca First Light Priming Filter
This incredible product helps to awaken and revive dull, tired skin. It’s a purple face primer that goes on sheer and preps skin before make-up application but I love using it on its own. Not only does it even out imperfections, refresh tired skin and provide mega hydration but its fresh citrus scent is an energising start to the day.

3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free
This tried and tested tinted moisturiser has been in my cosmetic bag for years. It’s one of the few products that I keep repurchasing. Since it's lightweight and oil free, it's perfect for anyone who breaks out. It’s also super hydrating and contains an antioxidant vitamin complex of C & E so it’s treating skin while protecting it from the pollutants in the environment. The sheer color effortlessly enhances your natural complexion making skin look flawless. Did I mention it also has SPF 20 in it? If this isn’t a beauty basic, I don’t know what is.

4. Erborian BB Crème au Ginseng
This BB cream gives a healthy, natural glow from within. Its creamy texture goes on smooth making skin look hydrated and radiant. It evens out skin tone, conceals imperfections, makes pores appear smaller and also helps mattify skin. Even more, it contains ginseng which has amazing moisturising and soothing properties. This product really does give the perfect healthy, dewy look.

5. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
Oh ladies, this product is so much more than a concealer! I call this my magic wand. The super creamy formula makes it easy to hide dark circles, reduce redness and blur imperfections. Its light diffusing technology makes all complexions look rested, restored and refreshed. Some days I use this instead of tinted moisturisers or primers, because a little goes a long way!
