When it comes to social media stalking, I have to admit that I'm somewhat obsessed with keeping an eye on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Obsessive? Yes, slightly. But when it comes to beauty, Rosie HW is a woman who has her trademark look down. I'm always hoping for a little insight into the products that she genuinely swears by. After all, her skin has the kind of glow that surely only money can buy. Luckily, this week's scheduled Rosie HW beauty stalk led me to unearth a pretty juicy product recommendation—the exact foundation that Rosie uses.
Despite being a "basic" makeup product, foundation can be one of the trickiest beauty purchases to make. There are literally thousands of options on the market, hundreds of different finishes and multiple undertones, hues and textures to choose from, so when a foundation seal of approval comes via a woman whose skin always looks incredible, you can breathe a sigh of relief.
Enough with the suspense: the foundation in question is Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (£37). A lightweight, water-based formulation with something of a cult following in the beauty community with product junkies and beauty editors alike. It's renowned as having a natural skin finish and a brightening effect—something Rosie clearly loves.
"I love makeup. I don't wear a ton of it, but I will always have a little foundation on," Rosie told Violet Grey. "I'm a big fan of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. It's a really natural foundation, so it just gives me a simple coverage."
