My Favourite Foundations in My Makeup Kit…(This was makeup I did for The Sun Newspaper photoshoot)
If you or a model needs a lot of coverage but do want something to even out the skin tone and relieve dry skin, tinted moisturisers may provide you with just what you need. Tinted moisturisers are perfect for softening and protecting the skin while adding a hint of foundation colour. I am in love with the NEW Origins VitaZing, £26 this makeup is perfect because you don’t have to put on moisturiser and then foundation on the skin: this is a multi-tasking moisturiser which hydrates and protects to maintain skin all day long. It’s a one-step process. I generally use this on models with absolutely amazing skin! Your catwalk models ;)
Airbrush Liquid Foundation (without the airbrush machine)
Most people opt for liquid foundation because it applies so smoothly and is easily found. You can enhance the smoothness by putting it on with a slightly damp fibre foundation brush (I love using MAC’s 188 small duo fibre brush, £26). Liquid makeup is good around the eyes, where you may want a bit more coverage; you can put it on with a small lip brush for the best control. I have mentioned it before but this is my favourite foundation of all time- Airbase foundation , £32.95 which can be applied with an airbrush or free hand. It makes all my models skin amazing! I also use this foundation to apply to men’s skin for photography work. You still pretty much need good skin for this foundation so here is my best foundation for models with pigmented, problem area skin…
These are mostly available as sticks and compacts, cream foundations are the first choice of most makeup artists as they cover skin quite well and give a flawless smooth look. They are easy to apply too. I LOVE Kryolan Cream ultra-foundations , £12.95 each. I buy the stackers for each shade as obviously this is great for working on models with different skin tones. All I am going to say to you is- Your skin looks flawless! But is not ideal for everyday use as can be heavy on the skin.
Start experimenting with different types of foundations…
