It’s a fact – thick, cakey base makeup is history. Is it part of the clean girl aesthetics? Maybe. Is it also about not ‘hiding’ all your flaws? Could be. Whatever be the case, everyone these days wants a light, fresh-looking base as a canvas to work with their makeup. With new products like serum foundations, lightweight concealers, tinted moisturisers and more, the ‘skin-like’ natural look is what we’re all vying for.
