Everyone thinks their foundation is the best, like everyone thinks their way of stacking the dishwasher, or packing the shopping, is best.

But in case you are unsatisfied with your daily complexion fixer, let me recommend to you my favourites. They are all light, but give good coverage. If you’ve got a major zit, you’ll probably need extra concealer. I tend to go for lighter foundations as I’ve got freckles and if you splatter foundation over them in the manner of a plasterer doing up a basement conversion, it looks totally weird.

Bourjois 10 hour sleep effect – absolutely terrific. India Knight has also written about how good this is in Style. It smells like hope.

A bit expensive, at around ¬£24, but this is the best of the light BB creams I’ve tried

This, from Benefit, is more of a primer than a foundation and it’s for days when your skin is in good nick and you just want and overall “blurring” effect. It has a slightly strange moussey consistency and will matt out your skin – if that’s a thing you’re after, which I mostly am, being a walking human oil slick.
