Get a fresh new look for spring

Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to spend a fortune on new foundation. Collection 2000's new Naturally Radiant Foundation is out this week and it has a fluffy, creamy consistency packed with hydrating and illuminating goodness to even out skin and leave it looking, well, naturally radiant. It's also SPF 15 (we should all start upping our skin protection now, even on dull days).

It's available in six shades costing 3.99. If you need a long-lasting foundation, try Collection 2000's Lasting Perfection, which is water-resistant, transfer-proof

and SPF20. It costs 5.86. Both from Tesco and Superdrug and check out www.collection2000.co.uk
