Tips from the pro

Applying make-up: What needs to be considered?

  • Before applying the Foundation, you should prepare your face well so that the result lasts for a long time. For a good foundation, you should clean your face, moisturize with a moisturizer and apply a primer.
  • The right shade is usually matched to your skin tone to cover especially redness and small pimples perfectly.
  • The foundation is matched to the skin type and texture.
  • Tip: for dry skin, do not use a powder, use powder for oily skin.

Applying the Foundation - the best tricks:

  • To apply the foundation you can use either brushes, sponges or hands.
  • Apply foundation with a make-up sponge: The advantage of the sponge is that due to the slightly moistened surface, the foundation can be applied deep into the pores.
  • Apply foundation with your hands: Simply massage foundation into your skin for a beautiful, natural finish!
  • Put some foundation on the back of your hand and take it with the brush, sponge or two fingers. Start applying to your nose and nostrils. Then hide the product from there outwards towards the ears, with dabbing (with the hands stroking) movements. Then place the foundation on your forehead and chin.Make sure that you also apply the foundation under your chin and at the neck so that no makeup edge appears.
  • Tip: Start with little product and prefer to apply several thin layers!
