We will start by asking you some questions to identify your skin type & what you are looking for in a foundation. From there we will get you to remove any base makeup that your currently wearing so we can test base foundations along your jawline. We wait 30 seconds to allow the base to reveal its true colour as they can oxidise. Once we select the best base colour for your skin tone we will add toners & continue to test until we get the best shade possible.
Once achieved we will add any modifiers as has been discussed during your consultation & pour your foundation into an airless pump ready to use.
We always finish with a full application, as well as some setting powder & share with you some basic application tips & tricks.
