FLAWLESS BASE 101

flawless-base

We all know that the key to flawless make-up is by creating a perfectly prepped and blemish-free base. If you have the perfect canvas, everything else blends together beautifully. With the help of a few make-up tools and an ultra HD foundation – we’ve got you covered to ensure that your complexion is glowing!

Prep & Prime
To ensure a flawless and camera-ready application, always be sure to start with thoroughly cleansed and moisturized skin. Paying particular attention to any troublesome areas (T-Zone if you suffer with oily skin). Don’t forget your jawline and neck too! After prepping your skin, apply a small amount of Primer to maximize the longevity of your base products (Our current fave is the Ultimate Porefessional Primer) and¬†minimize those unsightly pores. The silky velvet texture glides onto your skin beautifully with a soft-focus finish.

Makeup Brushes or Beauty Blender?!
The question that will divide make-up lovers forever – but it’s all personal preference of course! Stippling or buffing brushes are ideal for really working the product into your skin. Along with being the quicker method too, make-up brushes are super efficient if you’re in a rush or just got that “Cocktails?” text from the girls (we’ve ALL been there..)

Apply two pumps of the HD Foundation directly to your foundation brush of choice and dot on your forehead, cheeks, chin and the bridge of your nose. For flawless application, you want the most coverage to be in the center of your face – so blend outwards towards your hairline (you can always add more later if you need it!) Remember to blend blend blend, no-one likes to be known as the girl with the unsightly foundation lines!

If like us, you prefer a fuller coverage and you’re a Beauty Blender kinda gal – we’ve got you covered with our array of make-up sponges; for perfecting under-eye application that standard beauty blenders sometimes can’t reach! Check out our super cute Mini Beauty Blenders (two in a pack) for those hard to reach contours! Simply run the beauty sponge under a warm tap until it doubles in size, and squeeze out the excess moisture. Apply your foundation on the back of your hand and dab the beauty blender starting from the centre of your face in a patting motion. Resulting in a flawless and streak-free application every time!
