Powder Power!

When powder is applied to the face on top of foundation, it mattifies the skin leaving a beautiful, flawless finish. Powder benefits different types of skin in different ways; reducing the appearance of fine lines, anti-shine for oily skin, illuminating, reducing imperfections and delivering moisture.

Powder comes pressed or loose. Apply with a powder brush or pad using gentle, short strokes all over the face concentrating on the T-Zone. Blend carefully around the jaw and hairline for a seamless finish. It can also be used to add radiance to the décolleté.

Bronze and Blush

A great way to keep the skin looking sun-kissed all year round and give a healthy glow is to use a bronzer and a blusher. A blusher is used to accentuate the cheekbones, while a bronzer can be used all over the face, neck and even shoulders.

They come in a variety of shades to suit each skin tone. Apply with a blusher brush. When using a bronzer, sweep over the face starting from the centre and working outwards and use the blusher to define the cheekbones.

Contour and Highlight

If we want that extra glow, emphasise facial features and sculpt the face, we need to add contouring and highlighting to our make-up routine. Our complexion will look sun-kissed and illuminated as well as accentuating bone structure and to slim down the face and nose.

For best results pick the correct colour to match skin tone. They come in a powder, cream or stick.

Nail Care and Colour

Caring for our nails is vital, so they look and feel great. Adding a splash of colour with nail polish completes our look. Match with our outfit, express ourselves in different ways and be creative.

Treat dry or brittle nails with a nail serum. Revitalise, condition and moisturise to prevent breakage. Strengthen the nails with a nail hardener, a growth booster or a nail shield to protect against splitting and peeling.

Keep nails in perfect condition with a regular manicure and pedicure. Keep them clean and looking at their best using a nail brush. It removes dirt from under the fingernails and keeps them smooth. Use a cuticle nipper to keep cuticles tidy or a manicure stick to push cuticles back and clean around the nail. Use a nail file to shape and smooth the nails then a buffer to add shine.

Start with a base coat to prepare and protect the nails that maximises adhesion and minimises staining, or wear on its own for a glossy natural look. Choose chip and fade resistant nail polish to keep colour vibrant and nails looking fantastic. Protect and add shine with a sturdy top coat that contains UV protection. Use pedicure toe separators to paint the toenails with ease. If choosing not to colour the nails, refresh white tips with a white tip manicure pencil.

Bored with the colour? Remove the nail polish using a cotton pad and a remover with moisturising ingredients, choose a new colour, reapply and have fun!

 

Serums of Satisfaction

There are many serums on the market that can be used for the face or the hair. They treat target areas that need a quick fix or boost.

Serums for the face include reducing fine lines and wrinkles, hydrating and plumping, minimising pores and boosting radiance, firming, lifting and improving elasticity, smoothing and perfecting, clearing spots, brightening and refining texture and tone.

Serums for the hair include frizz control, gloss and moisture, split ends, nourishing, protecting and improving texture.

Serums should be used once a week, daily or when needed, depending on the serum.

 

Primer Perfection

Using a primer before applying foundation makes an enormous difference to the final result. A primer perfects and illuminates the skin for a youthful-looking appearance.

A primer can be worn on its own to smooth the surface of the skin as well as under foundation. It will minimise pores, absorb excess oil and keep make-up in place, even in humid conditions. The skin tone will appear smoother and will have a healthy glow.
