Autumn has well and truly settled, leaves have scattered, the chill in the air is crisp and the mornings are dewy. My summer tan has all but disappeared but I'm still looking for a more fresh faced, radiant glow when it comes to my base. I do prefer a lighter coverage like a BB cream or at least something with a similar consistency and finish, because even though its Autumn the sun still has days when its out in force. So I looked through my foundation draw to find something to give me a nice glow and out jumped 'Rimmel Wake Me Up - foundation'.
I've used the 'Rimmel Wake me up - Concealer' before and have loved its results - brightening, non cakey and a perfect colour for me. I particularly like it around the eye (not right underneath as it does crease on me there) and where I might usually do cream highlighting (nose, cupids bow). I don't like to use it on blemishes as in my opinion this concealer is more aimed for brightening, rather than covering spots. I use the lightest shade and its perfect for me both naturally tanned or when I'm paler.
For me, this sheer coverage is just enough to brighten and yes ''wake me up''!

Another foundation that I use for a similar effect is the 'Bourjois Happy Light in 51 Vanilla Rose' and 'Maybeline Age Rewind in Brightener'. I use this foundation with a Beauty Blender and apply it in a similar fashion as the Wake Me Up. I like this foundation when I'm looking for a slightly warmer base as the foundation is peachy toned.
