Summer is just around the corner so it’s time to dial down the heavy duty foundation in favour of some lighter options. This season, coverage is lighter and more subtle, as seen at Michael Kors, Nina Ricci and Alexander Wang to name but a few, giving your skin some space to breathe and your natural colouring a chance to shine through.

Here are five of the best options to ease your skin out of the closet for summer.
