So many women struggle to find the ideal foundation for them. That’s why we developed My Perfect Foundation to provide a fuss-free and flawless, matte-velvet beautiful finish every time.

Too heavy and foundations can produce a clogging effect.

The great news is that achieving the perfect complexion doesn’t have to be complex, thanks to the blendable and buildable formulation found in My Perfect Foundation.

Designed specifically to wear with My Perfect Eyes, like all the range it’s backed by years of testing, research and in this case, lots of formulating until we were able to achieve the ultimate matte finish.

Top 7 Tips to Apply your Foundation Like a Pro!

We’re breaking down our seven top tips on how to apply My Perfect colour adapting foundation like a Pro.

Follow these step by step instructions to achieve stunning results every time.

Step 1. Cleanse

We’re pretty sure you all thoroughly remove your makeup every night before bed so you might be wondering why we’re advocating cleansing it again before you apply your daily foundation.

Let’s call it part of your essential skincare routine.

Just in case there are any remnants of yesterday’s makeup still left on your face or excess oil, preparing your face first before you apply My Perfect Foundation will ensure the most even coverage and best results. The cleaner the canvas, the better the results.

We recommend you use My Perfect Wash, our purifying and luxuriously lathering, Amino acid facial wash, packed with hydrating properties. This gentle non-irritating formula deeply cleanses the skin but won’t strip it of essential oils. It delivers a boost of skin radiance plus the formula also protects against external pollutants.

Step 2. Prep

No matter how matte your foundation, you can still achieve soft and natural-looking results if you’ve prepped your skin correctly.

All you need is a good moisturiser to lock in hydration.

Let your skincare sink into your skin for about 5 minutes before you apply your foundation. If you go for a multi-tasking day cream like My Perfect Day, you can enjoy 12-hour dewy hydration. Infused with Argireline Peptide, this skin hydrating formula mimics the natural effects of needle fillers.

Step 3. Pick your Colour

It’s time to pick up the perfect shade for you.

It’s not as overwhelming as you might think. There’s no need to be colour matched. With just three shades to choose from, light, medium or dark, the adaptive colour technology in our latest product innovation blends effortlessly with your own skin tone and has been designed so that you can build and layer to achieve the perfect cover and finish.

It’s also ideal to use with My Perfect Eyes and we’ll explain just how to get the best results.

Step 4. Blend It

To enjoy that second-skin magic, you’re going to need either a foundation brush, a beauty sponge, or you could use your fingers. Go ahead and apply a small amount of My Perfect Foundation to the back of your hand and begin to gently dab to the side of your face in light motions.

Don’t smudge or swipe, light short blended strokes are all that’s needed. Apply to all the areas of your face first and leave where you’ve applied My Perfect Eyes till last.

Remember, if you want to go from a light daytime look to a fuller coverage evening look, use more product. The beauty of My Perfect Foundation color matching foundation is that it has been specially formulated to deliver buildable coverage. Your are 100% in control of your finished look.

Step 5. Now For The Eyes

This is the critical stage to perfecting your overall look.

Avoid using too much foundation on this area, especially if you’ve already applied My Perfect Eyes as this will have removed any darkness, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles.

You need to blend in with the rest of your face using light feathery sweeps over the under-eye area. Don’t rub or use excess pressure; otherwise, you’ll remove that invisible veil that’s working its magic.

Step 6. Fine Tune your Complexion

If you do still have a bit of extra redness today, or a few acne scars, tap a little bit of additional foundation with your ring finger into areas that need a bit more TLC. Again, making sure that you dab rather than smudge. My Perfect Foundation is your skin, only better. We didn’t want to create a product that was too artificial. Yes, it fixes flaws, but while still allowing your natural beauty and radiance to shine through.

Step 7. Ready For Your Selfie?

Apply a bit of your favourite blusher to finish off your look and you are good to go!

You’ve officially mastered the art of beautifully blended foundation thanks to My Perfect colour matching technology. It’s time to take that selfie and show off your completed look on the gram!

Please feel free to tag us in your selfies and shelfies and share the My Perfect Foundation love. We love seeing your transformations.
