Lighter Bases For Spring

I've really been embracing using light bases as the weather has warmed up a little. There have been three stand out products i've been reaching for the most, each fitting into a different category that I have to share today. 
SKINCARE:
The first one is a skincare product that adds a sheer tint to the skin. The Origins VitaZing SPF 15 (full review) has been a favourite for a while as it doesn't feel heavy on the skin but helps to even out the skintone slightly. Obviously this isn't going to cover everything but it is great to use under other bases so you need less product and creates a more natural look. I also use it on days I don't want to wear makeup but want a little tint to the skin.

DRUGSTORE FAVOURITE:
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream
The more I use the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (full review) the more I notice how good it is. This is a great light base which has an SPF 15 that corrects discolouration in the skin. I find it covers any redness really well and evens everything out. With a bit of concealer under the eyes and on any blemishes it looks very natural and feels light on the skin. The shade range isn't amazing but if you can find a shade that matches it's a great product.

THE ALL IN ONE:
NARS Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturiser
The finally product I have to share covers all the bases. The NARS Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturiser (full review) has an SPF 30, feels very hydrating on the skin and has surprisingly good coverage. You can really build this one up and areas that need more coverage whilst still looking natural on the skin. This has a great shade range (I have the shade Finland) as well which is rare especially in light coverage products. This lasts really well on the skin too. It has easily become one of my most used base products.

So those are my favourite lighter bases for the warmer months. Do you go for something lighter on the skin in the warmer months? If so what is your favourite base product at the moment?
