When you say the word ‘foundation’ to a make-up enthusiast, they’ll tell you it’s what they use to cover their imperfections and even out the skin-tone on their face. But it is so much more than that. It’s part of a routine wherein they empower themselves and instil a sense of confidence and self-assurance that help them tackle the world head-on.

It’s important to take care of your skin, not only after you’ve taken off your foundation and make-up, but before you apply all of it as well. Prepping your skin before applying your foundation also holds its own benefits, including a clean, easy to- work on canvas, which will promote lasting stay of any make-up you apply.

Preparing Your Face for Annique’s Foundation
Rinse your skin with Rooibos-infused water, then pat dry. Apply the Annique serum best suited to your skin. Use the following products: Skin Detox, Liquid Skin Nutrition, Miracle Tissue Oil, your eye product of choice, the moisturiser most suited to your skin type, Q10 Therapy, a Freshener, and a sunscreen. Wait a minute or two for the products you’ve applied to settle.

Different Ways to Apply Your Annique Foundation
Fingers
Wash your hands before you start. When applying foundation with your fingers, you should never put more foundation than the size of a 10 cent on the back of your hand. Place bits of foundation onto your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose with your ring and middle finger. Spread out your foundation before you gently and with light fingers, blend your foundation until you have even coverage.

Foundation brush
Make sure your hands and brushes are clean before you start. Believe it or not, you only need half what you use when you apply it with your fingers, about the size of a pea. A brush is most effective to cover a greater area of skin when using a small amount of foundation. For the most effective application with a foundation brush, you’ll get the best results with a clean, flat brush, preferably with synthetic fibres. You’ll put the initial foundation on the back of your hand and use the brush to place it on your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose. Start in the middle of your face and work outwards with downward strokes.

Latex wedge/Make-up wedge
The great thing about applying foundation with a wedge is that it can get into all the nooks and crannies we would otherwise struggle with or miss. Start with a clean wedge and use the foundation you have on the back of your hand. Work the wedge and foundation from the centre of your face outwards. Don’t forget about your nose and to blend the foundation out towards your ears and neck.
