Mineral foundation, concealer and BB cream at Danu World
How do I achieve a natural looking base?
Foundation comes in many different forms and you want to select one that gives you an even skin tone and leaves your complexion looking fresh and radiant.
All skin types suit mineral foundation powder. You can get a fantastic coverage and matte finish with a mineral powder due to the dense natural pigments. It is a very economical makeup to use as you only need the tiniest amount for a full face coverage. You will conceal redness and blemishes in one easy step. Apply with a Kabuki brush (we have a super one in our brushes category) and you are going to look flawless. Although it is a powder, it is not going to be drying on your skin. The minerals soak up your natural oils making mineral makeup suitable for oily skins. You will have a matte look all day long.
Often you don't need to use a separate concealer so this really is a one-step face base. If you do choose to use a colour correcting cream then make sure to use it before your foundation when using a mineral powder foundation.
A liquid foundation will give a dewy youthful look to your skin. Apply with a foundation brush for the most professional look. Liquid foundation can have different levels of coverage. Build medium coverage from a tint to as heavy as you need. A little foundation on your lips can give staying power to lipstick!
When using a concealer with foundation, it is best to apply your foundation first. The foundation will act as a base and make it longer lasting. It doesn't matter if you are using the stick or cream. Always apply with a brush so as not to infect your product with any bacteria that may be on your fingers. You can build the coverage slowly.
If you want the lightest of coverage, a BB cream is the product for you. Suitable for teenagers starting out in makeup or for anyone who just wants to even out skin tone and has a little radiance boost. BB cream is not the same as a tinted moisturiser. BB cream is for those wanting a no make up makeup! It is slightly heavier than a tinted moisturiser but not much. If you want a very light matte foundation base then BB cream is for you. BB cream is very forgiving if you choose the wrong shade. It blends seamlessly into skin and a shade up or down from yours won't be noticeable. It is a complexion rescue in a tube! BB cream can come as a hydrating gel cream suitable for problematic and sensitive skin. If you have blemishes or redness then you may need an additional concealing product.
Tinted moisturiser is a moisturising cream that boasts a slight tint to it. It is a great alternative to thicker foundation. The upside to tinted moisturisers is that they offer barely-there coverage with a lightweight feel, evening out your skinâ€™s tone with a slight dewiness. A sheer tint is often enough on your face if you want to keep your look natural and light. It's a skin care product with a little bit of help for your skin tone. You can often get a radiant tinted moisturiser with a broad spectrum SPF in. We recommend using SPF 20, SPF 30 or higher daily as even in the UK, the UV rays can damage your skin. Incorporate one into your skin care regime and you will reap the rewards in years to come.
What is makeup concealer?
Makeup concealer is a product to help you camouflage blemishes and redness on your skin. It can be used to hide scars from acne or even conceal tattoos.
Under-eye circles are a problem that most of us suffer from. You can get specific eye creams to conceal those dark lines. The skin under your eyes is delicate and needs a light product. Anything heavy and you risk drawing attention to lines and wrinkles. Choose a shade lighter than your makeup if you are trying to conceal dark circles. Use a brush to get right into the corner of your eyes. A colour correcting or light reflecting concealer will improve the appearance of dark circles immediately. The best concealing product for under your eye will feel light and you won't feel it on your skin. Always apply with a light motion to avoid dragging your skin.
A creamy concealing product is good for dry skin. It needs to be applied with brushes for a long-lasting effect. It tends to be more heavily pigmented than a liquid alternative.
Liquid concealer is the best product for a natural look if you don't have too many issues that you want to cover: It will be more hydrating for you than a stick formulation.
Sometimes a colour correcting concealer is enough rather than needing to use a deeply pigmented one.
Green is recommended to combat redness.
Peach will add radiance to your skin.
CC cream conceals lightly and adds a tint of colour where you need that little extra coverage.
If you feel that you want to control the concealing level, you can use a powder.
A stick is probably the most popular concealing product and is deeply pigmented. It is good to use on acne-prone skin or oily skin as they tend to be waxier than others which gives more staying power. For some, a concealing stick is a beauty must-have. It can be used on the face, on lips as a base for neutral lipstick or on the body to conceal thread veins and scars.
Always make sure that you have applied a daily moisturiser with SPF in. We stock facial moisturiser with SPF and it makes a great base for all foundations.
