The Perfect Summer Base!

Every Summer I find myself searching for the perfect makeup base. I much prefer the idea of a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream but some of them just don’t cut it in the coverage department. However, I’ve only gone and done it haven’t I… I’ve found the perfect summer base!


MAC Lightful C Tinted Cream SPF 30 £25.50 is a little gem, sent from heaven! It’s so much more than a tinted cream, this little baby is packed full of skin benefits.

  • It’s a correcting cream that reduces imperfections while increasing the natural radiance of your skin instantly and over time (hells yeah!)
  • Infused with a Lightful Radiance Booster and vitamin C, which works to correct your overall complexion by reducing the appearance of pores and diminishing dark spots and hyper-pigmentation
  • SPF 30 protects against UVA/UVB rays


The consistency is quite thick however it’s much more of a sheer coverage than other MAC foundations. Despite the sheer coverage I felt like this covered imperfections really well and definitely evens the skin tone out, as promised!

My pores were well hidden and I must say my skin looked pretty damn radiant. As for diminishing dark spots, I can’t comment as I have only had the product for 1 week. However I feel confident that my skin is really going to reap the benefits of this new little life saver.

It’s gorgeously light on the skin and really makes you feel like you aren’t wearing anything, whilst looking pretty flawless, so this is a total win in my books! I went for the ‘Light Plus’ shade, to match my NW20 skin and it’s the perfect colour.


I will admit this isn’t a base that I would wear on a night out or a special occasion but it really is the perfect everyday summer base. If you’re looking for a ‘my skin but better’ look then this is the one for you!
