The more natural your base, the less self-conscious you’re likely to feel about it potentially sliding off. Bobbi Brown’s BB cream is a low maintenance option that still covers beautifully and evens out your skin tone. It also contains an impressive SPF 35.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation, £33.50
