Once your skin is a clean, clear canvas, a foundation powder is
applied to ensure a smooth, healthy and natural finish. Chose a
color that matches your skintone as closely as possible. If you
tend to have rosacea or a ruddy complexion, try our Color Corrective
powder to tone the red down.
If you want to conceal imperfections, it is
recommend to use the SPF 15 powders as they have more coverage. If
one has a skin tone that is excellent and wants a light coverage
than the Original formula would suit you well.
- Apply a loose powder with a powder brush over the foundation. We
sell 2 Kabuki brushes which we recommend for this purpose.
Pressed powders are in their pressed form because they have been set
with oil. Loose powders are made with an
arrowroot base and seal the pores of your skin. This allows
less oil to surface on the face and keeps your make up fresh. Another
advantage is that the aging effects of the pollution in the atmosphere
are decreased when the pores are closed.
- Once the Foundation powder is applied, your blush can be
applied using our blush brush,
or if you prefer, the luscious Kabuki brush.
- The reason for using brushes as opposed to sponges and/or puffs is
that the application is much smoother and there are no trapped oils or
dirt in a brush. A pad, puff or sponge picks up and holds the skin's
rejected oils and dirt each time you use it. Many women complain that
their make-up looks faded and shiny after only a few hours of applying
it. This is because they have added dirt to their faces and the pores
are secreting massive amounts of oil to protect the skin. A brush can
be cleaned daily with soap and water and left to dry until the next
application, ensuring good skin hygiene.
We highly recommend frequent brush washing.
- To prolong the staying power of
loose eye shadows, first apply the foundation powder to the lid area,
and then apply the eye shadow. Our SPF 15 powders are great in
this instance as they have a heavier coverage and can provide a
thicker base if one tends to have oily eye lids.
