The perfect base - Vitalumiere Aqua by Chanel

Dehydrated skin in need of a pick me up will glow after a few dabs of the latest foundation release from Chanel.

Perfect for evening things out on skin of any age this one's also quite kind. Perspiration and oils are controlled and trips to the powder room for top-ups become a distant memory.
