Foundation MakeUp

Foundation MakeUp

The essence to gorgeous beautiful make up must start with the base – the foundation!   By choosing the correct shade of foundation and quality most suited to your skintone, you can achieve flawless healthy looking skin.

Too often when a client sits in the make up chair and we hear the familiar comments…..’I never wear foundation….I don’t want it to look too thick….I never choose the right shade!’ etc   The list is endless…….

Ten minutes later they see for themselves how important the correct foundation makeup is as a canvas for their other make up and how gorgeously glowing and bright they now appear.

Don’t even think about applying your blusher without a foundation.  Laying powders onto bare skin can be drying, ageing and the opposite to flawless!

If you want flawless coverage then it starts with the foundation….and no, it needn’t be thick or too orange, too pale, streaky and unnatural.

There is a product to suit everyone. It’s all about trying and testing the foundation makeup which best suits you and your lifestyle!

We love a liquid foundation.  Sheer, illuminating and smooth!  Who doesnt want a natural glow!  There is no need to feel caked. A good quality liquid will cover up the blemishes and leave you with amazing results.

If you are prone to hot flushes or greasy skin then it may be that a mineral make up powder foundation will ease off the shine and stay put for hours!  A creme foundation stick is also a popular choice. Shaped like a lipstick it is creamy in its consistency and hides away neatly in the handbag. Great for busy ladies on the move who need to refresh on the go!  No messy leaky bottles to deal with!

Applying Foundation Makeup

When applying foundation makeup, we recommend a foundation brush.  Its a winner everytime.  The product glides on effortlessly and the brush will be the best ‘make up’ investment you will make!  No more messy fingers and no dirty sponges which can be unhygenic. By using a brush you can build up the product and blend it evenly into the skin.

So how do you choose the right shade?  Test a tiny amount of the product on the jawline. Whilst you shouldnt see an obvious dark line you also can afford to go a shade warmer than your natural skintone. We tend to have slightly more colour on our neck and decollage area.

Foundation makeup is the desert island must have!  We wouldn’t even think about applying blusher without sorting out the client’s skintone first.  So, enhance your natural beauty and achieve gorgeous results with foundation makeup – everytime!!
