For application on my neck and décolleté, I use the large Powder Buffer Brush for easy and even coverage.
To conceal any imperfections, the Mini Fluff Brush works perfectly with the Perfect Cover Mineral Foundation, which is serving as both foundation and concealer.
All our favorite; the Foundation Air Brush
Option 2: Adding A Primer for Longer Wear
To enhance coverage, create a smoother canvas and extend wear, I incorporate a primer into the routine. Today, I chose the TiZO Primer Sunscreen, which multitasks as a primer and sunscreen.
After applying the Perfect Cover Foundation as both under eye coverage and eyeshadow base, I then move into applying powder primer, as I want to show you the various options.
There are two powder primer options, either Pure Primer or Embellish Treatment Powder. I choose Embellish for an ultra-glow and additional skin treatment benefits. By applying Embellish to only one side of my face, you can see the difference compared to using the TiZO Sunscreen Primer alone. For this step, I switch to the Perfect Blush Brush, which also works great as a foundation applicator. Again, showcasing the options.
Option 3: Adding Concealer and Finishing Powder
For a velvety matte look, I apply the Pure Primer all over with the Foundation Airbrush. Using the same airbrush, I apply the Perfect Cover Foundation along with the Fair Concealer using the Mini Fluff Brush. The concealers offer more pigment and coverage. And guess what? You can use our concealers as foundation too! Multitasking brilliance.
Finally, to achieve a diffused soft glow, I use the Silk Finish Powder for the finishing touch.
Complete Look: Contour and Highlight
Now, let's take it a step further and create depth, definition, and dimension with contouring and highlighting. Using the Contour Brush and Contour Powder, I brush upward to lift and sculpt the face. Remember to add dimension at the hairline, define the jawline, and shape the nose.
For highlighting, I add a beautiful glow to the high points of my face using the Satin Sheen Powder. You can use your fingers or a brush to gently dab it on. Alternatively, a big Fluffy Brush can be used for a light dusting all over. If you accidentally highlight the tip of your nose, no worries! Simply take a little foundation powder and cover it right up.
