If there’s something we all know, it’s that there is no better feeling than strutting down the street oozing confidence. We feel this when we’ve just landed a new job, stepped out of the hairdressers, had a brilliant catch up with girlfriends, or of course, when our make-up is perfectly on point.
Whether it’s creating a make-up look for work, Saturday brunch or a first date, ultimately we all want to achieve a finished look that fits the occasion and allows us to feel comfortable and positive.
With all of the above in mind, we’d like to share a step by step tutorial for how to apply one of our best selling complexion collections; Flawless Liquid Foundation and Flawless Concealer. If you’re looking to create a flawless, long wearing satin matte finish, these products are ideal for you. Like all Nude by Nature make-up the Flawless Liquid Foundation and Concealer are formulated with 100% naturally derived ingredients and are cruelty-free.
Follow the step-by-step tutorial below:
Step 1 - Prepare the Skin:
Cleanse to remove impurities and prepare your skin, then moisturise to hydrate and protect the skin.
Tip: It’s important to note that what you apply underneath your foundation can influence your final finish, and that some products (such as serums, moisturisers or sunscreens) can be incompatible with other products when layered, or just need extra time to dry before applying the next product.
Step 2 - Prime:
Apply a small amount of the Perfecting Primer underneath the foundation as it creates a smooth, even base for make-up application and helps to extend wear.
Step 3 - Foundation Application:
i. Apply a small amount of the Flawless Liquid Foundation (1 pump) to the back of the hand.
Tip: The Flawless Liquid Foundation is fast drying so we do recommend applying a small amount of the foundation and blending quickly.
ii. Apply and blend foundation with the Buffing Brush, using quick circular motions to ensure even application.
Tip: The Buffing Brush is the perfect tool to effortlessly blend the Flawless Liquid Foundation thanks to its ultra-soft, tightly packed bristles and flat surface area - making application quick and easy.
iii. Coverage can be built from medium to full as required. Apply extra product to areas needing additional coverage with the Buffing Brush using a stippling (dabbing) action.
Step 4 - Concealer Application:
i. Apply the Flawless Concealer after foundation to instantly camouflage dark circles and imperfections.
ii. You can apply the concealer stick directly to the skin or use fingertips/Concealer Brush.
iii. Blend seamlessly into the skin with fingertips or Concealer Brush.
OPTIONAL: To help extend make-up wear and control excess oil and shine, we recommend applying a light dusting of finishing powder such as the Translucent Loose Finishing Powder or Mattifying Pressed Setting Powder using a Finishing Brush.
Complete the Look:
To finish the make-up look, you can start with contour and/or highlight. Our Contour Palette is a brilliant palette for quick contouring with three matte shades to sculpt, define and highlight. The silky powders blend into the skin creating a flattering finish for all skin tones or face shapes. The easy to use Touch of Glow Highlight Stick is a big crowd favourite, with a glide-on cream-to-powder texture composed of ingredients including Vitamin E and Desert Lime. It’s available in three shades.
Next up is the eyes. Our Eye Collection includes products such as the Natural Illusion Pressed Eyeshadow which is available in 12 shades and is a velvety pressed eyeshadow that blends effortlessly onto the eyelid, with the formula enriched with active natural ingredients such as Sweet Almond Oil. The Contour Eye Pencil is a densely pigmented eye pencil that can be used to create both a natural or dramatic eye. It comes in six shades. Finish your eyes with the vitamin enriched Allure Defining Mascara that provides intense definition and length, coming in either black or brown.
Lips is lucky last! The Defining Lip Pencil is a highly pigmented, long lasting pencil that provides smooth colour coverage to contour and define the lips. Select one of the gorgeous 10 shades of the Creamy Matte Lipstick which has a velvet smooth texture that glides on for a comfortable, lasting wear. The lipstick formula is composed of 100% naturally derived ingredients including Australia’s Kakadu Plum and Mango Seed Butter.
