Tips for applying a liquid foundation

Napoleon Perdis liquid foundations have been designed for effortless application and airbrushed results. Simply apply to the centre of the face and blend outwards with either a buffing brush or beauty sponge. The Pro Makeup Blending Sponge is the perfect tool for liquid foundation. The sponge’s large end can be used to blend the bulk of foundation, whilst the tapered end is perfect for concealer and smaller areas.

Tips for applying a powder foundation

Powder foundations can either be applied on their own for sheer-to-medium coverage, or over liquid and stick foundations to set the look in place. The Camera Finish Compact Powder from Napoleon Perdis is a must-have for any handbag, as the generous mirror allows for easy on-the-go top-ups.

Tips for applying a stick foundation

The Foundation Stick can be used in a variety of ways to achieve different looks. For sheer coverage, mix in with the Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer for a natural finish that evens out skin tones.

For medium-to-full coverage, apply directly to the skin and blend out with a foundation brush, building up coverage in problematic areas. The Foundation Stick can also be used as a concealer. Simply apply directly to skin and pat into areas that need higher coverage, such as blemishes, scars, pigmentation, and the area under the eyes.

Very messy

I have used this once and won't be trying it again on myself. I think it is a product where you need to have someone else spray you. It does have a nice light finish but I had to use a sponge to pat it in as it clung to the little hairs all over my face. It also got on my eyelashes, eyebrows, hair line. It sounds good in theory but not in practice.
