This post was a wish-post by a person who has problems getting the base make-up to hold, that it gets cakey, releases during the day or looks very powdery. I know that many people have these problems and hope and believe that many more will be helped by this post!
So I've fixed that now! :) Here is the film and also all tips in text format for those of you who prefer to read.
3 important points to keep in mind:
1. Choose products with good quality.
All products are different and it's not as simple as saying "choose a liquid foundation with good durability" because it is still a whole jungle with which products keep their promises.
2. Choose products that suit your skin type.
Good durability on a person with very oily skin is not the same products for a person with very dry skin. Here, too, some guidance is usually required because the brands usually only differentiate between "oily / normal" and "normal / dry", so to be on the safe side, it can be good to talk to a person with more experience about the product. For example. how does the product wrinkle? Does this foundation match this face primer? That's where I come in;)
In this post, I start from normal skin or a little oily / a little dry, but not super big problems with the skin.
3. Apply in a good way.
Often you take too much of each product so that it becomes thick layers or apply carelessly, and then it is not the same result as putting in an extra minute and working the products properly into the skin. The result on the same skin and with the same products can be completely different depending on how careful you are with the application.
Big difference huh? :) And yet natural! You can apply thinner of the foundation plus less concealer if you want less coverage than this as well.
Here are the products I used! (Not listed in the order I applied)
1. Face primer - Paese Makeup Base (Matte)
Do your skin care routine and let the moisturizer sink properly into the skin. Then apply face primer all over the face. I chose Paese Makeup Base (Matte) as it works on you with normal / dry skin as well (it is matte but does not emphasize dryness). But you can choose any other face primer in our range based on your wishes, they all work well with the other products.
Primer is important for durability as it makes the skin a better work surface to apply the rest of the makeup on later. So other products fold more evenly and last better.
Important for good durability: Massage into the skin thoroughly and apply a thin layer.
2. Foundation - Pixi H2O Skintint
This is a foundation gel that sinks into the skin and sits great! It is oil-free but moisturizing and fits well even in wrinkles and lines, so it really suits all skin types.
You do not need to massage it in because it sinks in by yourself so just "put on" the skin. Gives a semi-comprehensive result.
I use the shade Nude in this post but is probably actually the lighter shade Cream, but I was just tanned which I miss as it disappeared so quickly so live in denial and makeup on neck / décolleté also instead;)
Important for good durability: Thin layers, do not overdo the amount of foundation but rather supplement with concealer if you want more coverage.
3. Concealer - Pixi Pat Away Concealing Base
A liquid concealer that provides full coverage and becomes incredibly durable on the skin! It is creamy when applied but is fixed quickly and then fits very well.
I use the shade Cream which is the lightest because I want a lightening under the eyes. It is lighter than the foundation when I apply to e.g. blemishes, but since I apply contouring and blush as well, it does nothing, but you can have two different ones if you want a shade for the face and one for under the eyes.
Important for good durability: If you have a lot of redness around the nose (or other area), use a neutralizing powder that Glo Skin Beauty Redness Relief Powder which removes redness instead of applying thick layers of concealer. This is so that you do not have to have a lot of thick layers to achieve a good degree of coverage.
In addition, I put the concealer after foundation, because if you apply it, you easily use too much concealer because you want to cover a lot and do not think that foundation will come over as well. This then results in there being quite thick layers - which we, as I said, avoid if you want long durability :)
4. Pillows - Paese Bamboo Silk Powder
This foundation does not actually need to be fixed with powder, however, I always prefer to fix the concealer with powder for as lasting a result as possible.
Important for good durability: This is such a thin powder that it does not become cakey or similar, just to wrap on!
5. Fixing mist - Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist
Finishing the makeup with a fixing mist becomes a protective layer for external stresses and makes the whole make-up even more durable! In addition, it makes all products blend better into the skin and if the skin looks powdery somewhere, it removes that surface.
Important for good durability: Before this step, you can put all your other products on the skin, such as contouring, blush, highlighter. If you want a completely matte base, you can put some powder over the fixing mist as well, when it has dried.
And here is the result! I myself need more powder because I am so oily, but apart from the oiliness, the whole base was just as nice only until I washed it off in the evening!
Hope you liked the post! I am bothered that the movies are not as good quality on Youtube as they are on my computer, although I have saved in a format that should work, but I have googled a lot on this and apparently it is always the case that the quality gets worse because Youtube changes the codes. So there's nothing I can do.
So I hope that it's just me who cares about the quality and that it does not do much for you who do not know how good the quality actually is? ;) I know I stare blindly at things so sometimes it's hard to decide for myself if it's justified criticism or not.
