The right foundation can increase the appearance of your skin’s radiance and luminosity; as well as enhance your skin care routine. It is all about choosing the right products, in the best shade to match your natural skin tone. The loveliest look is the one in which it is hard to tell whether you are wearing any foundation, and the effect is one of beautiful skin!
No-one wants a ‘cakey’ look to their foundation, and with the right formulation, the foundation should apply evenly and effortlessly onto your skin, cover flaws, even out skin tone and improve skin clarity.
As with any art, the canvas must be perfectly prepared first. Cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin and follow up with sunscreen. Give a little time for the moisturiser and sunscreen to sink into your skin. Now you are ready for the application of concealer and foundation. Today’s foundations and concealers are sophisticated and numerous, so it is important to find the one that will be the perfect match for your skin.
A concealer can be used first to cover any blemishes and dark shadows, as well as any areas of uneven pigmentation. The effect is an immediate appearance of brightening and lifting of the skin, and erasing of any puffiness or dark circles under the eyes. Environ’s Even More Cover+ Concealers combine skin care and beautifying effects in one product, with a formulation containing vitamin E and gentle, high quality ingredients that care for the skin while perfecting a finished look.
It is best to gently apply the concealer to the areas you want to brighten or cover with the brush applicator that comes with the Cover+ Concealer, and then press gently with your fingertips so it blends smoothly and evenly into your skin.
Maximise hydration for a youthful look
One of the reasons that some foundations can end up ageing the look of your skin is because they might not contain enough moisture to hydrate your skin, and end up settling into fine lines. You can avoid this by choosing a light, hydrating foundation that sinks in easily and smoothly, creating a youthful, fresh-faced effect.
Environ’s Even More Hydra+ Foundations have a smooth, creamy texture and soothing, moisturising ingredients that glide effortlessly onto the skin, leaving it soft and silky to the touch. Combining skin care and beauty in one formulation, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract provides antioxidant protection, the Sodium Hyaluronate promotes hydration and Ginseng Root extract promotes skin brightening, all while simultaneously leaving the skin flawlessly smooth and even-looking.
The foundation can be applied with your fingertips, an application brush or a make-up sponge, depending on your personal preference. The method that promotes the best finished effect is to apply in semi-circular movements under the eyes, along the bridge of the nose, around the mouth, centre of the forehead and down the bridge of the nose. You can then blend upwards and outward toward the hairline and jawline and your artistry is complete!
