Laying the Correct Foundation
As time passes our complexion becomes patchy.
Choosing the correct foundation can work like magic helping you to look 10 years younger. The best foundation will always look undetectable giving a flawless coverage that is feather light and lasts all day.
Pro Tip - Always use a foundation brush, as blending is the key. Take a light approach to the application, test the tone in three areas including the jaw line and lower cheek area as well as down the neck. It has to look undetectable, light and dewy. Recommended Atelier Waterproof fluid foundation.
Get Your Glow Back by Highlighting
Highlighting the temples and cheeks is an amazing look. By creating luminous skin, your complexion will look radiant, dewy and younger.
Pro Tip - Best achieved with a very subtle fluid highlighter. Stay away from shimming glittery pigments; the idea is to catch the light and bring your cheekbones forward. Recommended Atelier Base Eclat moistening highlighter
Colour your Cheeks - With A Subtle Touch
Using a cream or a soft powder blush will also freshen and brighten the complexion whilst giving colour and softness to the cheeks. Peach and soft dusty pinks are flattering. Leave the bronzing heavy tones to the beach babes.
Pro Tip - Using a silk based loose powder lightly blended over the blush create a seamless application. Recommended Atelier Cream blush or single powder blush in Beige Rose or Rose brown.
Choose a quality ultra-fine silk powder. The application needs to be light so the appearance of dry skin does not appear powdery.
Pro Tip - Select a tone that matches your foundation. Beware some translucent powders give a pale washed out effect. Recommended Atelier Loose Powder Honey or Natural.
Defining the Brows
A light feathering technique will define the brows, and make such a difference to frame the eyes.
ProTip - Have your brows groomed by a professional this will help create a good template to shape and maintain. Use a small angle brush to fill in the gaps creates definition. Be careful to choose a pencil or shadow that is the correct tone. Recommended Atelier Taupe C08 pencil for light hair and C07 for dark hair.
