It's a match!

Step by step: How to find the perfect foundation.

A flawless complexion is the basis for all beautiful looks. It has fine pores, is absolutely even and has that certain glow. Unfortunately, many complexions are naturally patchy, uneven and the eye area often has bluish colour accents. However, with the correct make-up technique and the right make-up you can create the perfect complexion in a flash.

Which texture do I want?

Completely natural or perfect coverage? Extra matte or with a special glow? Liquid, cream or powder? Every woman has both personal preferences and problem zones that she would like to conceal. With very dry skin, you should definitely avoid powdery products. With oily skin you are best avoiding rich cream make-up. The perfect make-up practically melts into the skin, feels pleasant and definitely doesn't look like a mask.

Which shade do I need?

It is vital to test make-up shades while wearing no make-up. After all, the make-up should perfectly match the skin and not the already applied make-up. And because there are often minor but important differences in shades, we recommend trying three slightly different ones that seem as if they would be a good match. Then apply all three close together and decide which shade is the perfect match. Tip: It is best to test foundations on the neck. If the make-up blends into your natural skin tone, it's the right shade.

Brush, sponge or fingers?

The question of what is best for applying foundation is also relevant: The fingers already slightly warm the product which makes it easier to blend. Whether a brush or a sponge is used depends on your personal preference. The thicker the material of the tool, the stronger the dose of colour. Furthermore, the coverage can also be controlled by moistening the tool. This results in an even lighter and more transparent finish. A brush gives more coverage. A sponge gives an even and soft foundation application. Particularly for those who have beautiful skin, you can use this to magically create the perfect no make-up look.

How do I apply it?

Before applying a foundation, you should thoroughly cleanse the face and use a moisturising cream. Allow a few minutes for this to absorb into the skin. Then use concealer to cover up undereye shadows and blemishes and blend well. Apply foundation from the middle of the face and work into the skin using outward movements. It is also important that you thoroughly blend colour from face to neck and hairline. Otherwise, you will have unattractive tide marks. Finally, fix and mattify with transparent powder. Et voilà!
