I love all of the 'lumiere' products but 'pro' and 'vita' variety's seem to work the best for me, although I would certainly say the 'matt' and 'lift' are good too, for different skin types.
In the picture below I have more of a tan, so this is vitalumiere in 30. Equally as lovely as pro, but a little more sheer and glowy, so if you prefer a slightly lighter finish, or have dry skin, this is beautiful!
I can very definitely say I cannot imaging ever being the right colour for 50 (unlike my gorgeous friend Nicola who has such a beautiful warm bronzed tone to her skin) however it is a good colour to use to add a little in to my other foundations to match up the colour depending on tan. On the pic below I added a tiny pump of 50 to my 20, and it just added a nice warmth to the colour.
There you have it..a few of my most certain 'cannot live without' items..
Do you have any favourites cannot live without items??! xx0x

This is not with a tan, and unfortunately doesn't really do it much justice, may sadly also be the very last time it is applied- was quite a challenge to get a good coat!

Earlier in the year I worked for an amazing upcoming designer by the name of Jennifer Levenstone with her high end clothing label 'Prodiga'!
Young entrepreneur and Fashion Designer, Jennifer Levenston, left Leeds Art College at the tender age of 19 years old to branch out and launch her own brand, Prodiga.
“The Italian word for ‘lavish’ is exactly what I wanted my clothing line to reflect, but with a difference. It needed to have the ability to be worn in everyday life.
Jennifer continues: “Breaking into the market is a huge challenge, especially in today’s current climate. Much to my surprise, Mintel has reported a rise in high-end designer clothing over the past year.
“The clothing range has been born out of a societal change. Soaring numbers of women are demanding high quality, fashionable work attire.”
Prodiga designs aim to allow women to embrace their fashion conscious image, whilst retaining ‘the look’ within the workplace. The clothing range uses a mix of fabrics such as laces, alongside ruffled and structural elements.
Jennifer has designed the collection from ongoing research and inspiration for the ‘perfect’ blouse.
“I feel that whilst decorative designer blouses are highly sought, the choice is somewhat limited. You either face an extremely large price tag, or stuck overpaying for basics.
“I recently had a photo shoot for my first collection, and it exceeded all my expectations. I got in touch with a couple whose garden won the Garden of the Year Award! I stumbled across our outstanding photographer on Facebook, Adam Barouhk from London. The shoot was also filmed by Eddie Steinberg to generate a short film intro for the website.”
The first collection is made of beautiful fabrics to generate a stunning garment, and practically usable – an everyday garment.
