When it comes to makeup, aceing your base is key. It provides the perfect, ahem, foundation for the rest of your look, creating a glowing canvas that allows the rest of your features to shine (perhaps literally, if that’s your thing). But it can also be a difficult thing to get right, which is why many of us stick to the same products we know and trust day in and day out.

While knowing your skin is a positive thing, there are also a whole lot of amazing new base products launching every month for you to discover. So if you’re interested in updating your routine with a few new launches without the risk, here are some of GRAZIA‘s recent favourites – glowing results guaranteed.

Hourglass’ highly anticipated new foundation doesn’t disappoint. Taking inspiration from the brand’s iconic Ambient Lighting collection, the formula provides a soft-focus glow to the skin, while still offering enough coverage to blur blemishes and imperfections.
