SUPER NATURAL. *are vegan
We prepped Nicole's face using Mardara Micellar Water* our favourite backstage essential. It is infused with organic aloe vera and damask rose and removes make up quickly without any need for water. If your skin needs some exfoliation try Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask* which is like a peel exfoliator that removes surface dead skin without any down time.
We spritzed Neal’s Yard Remedies Rejuvenating Toner* which calms and helps skin to absorb the moisturiser we used after that.We massaged the face with Therapi Lemon Moisturiser that mattifies oily skin and makes a great make up primer. If you prefer a facial oil try Nourish Argan Skin Rescue* which is high in omega 6 and vitamin E, it is non-greasy and gives a more dewy finish. For the balm lovers we recommend All You Need Is Me for lips or any dry, sensitive and even excema-prone skin. With all we recommend you take time to massage the product in, from the center outwards. You can be quite firm in your strokes -like in the video- as it promotes lymphe drainage, tones skin and helps the product to sink in.
As a base we applied Gressa Skin Serum Foundation #08* -made with broccoli seed oil to give it a silky feel- with a W3ll People Foundation brush. Gressa Skin serum foundation is buildable from medium to full cover in a wide range of colours. Also check out Ilia Vivid Foundation Sander F6 that comes in slick gunmetal packaging. For a wide range of colour pigments -that can be mixed in- check Alima Pure Foundation Powders*, which can be used to mattify the make up too. For more options check the gallery at the bottom of the tutorial page. Whatever you do always choose a colour to match the rest of your body, which might be paler or darker to the colour of your face. For a natural finish press your fingers into the skin to blend and remove any excess.
We contoured with Zao Compact Cream Foundation #741* mixed with RMS ‘Un’Cover 112. Take care to blend out the colour with a soft brush or your fingers. With our fingers we blended Ilia 'Sway' Illuminator on eyes and cheekbones for a bronze/golden highlight. To add more impact and to set the eye make up try OCC Colour Pigment* in 'Dope' for a metallic bronze finish.
Shape brows adding small strokes with a pencil in a matching colour, we used Zao Black 601* for a natural look. Brush up brows with a clean spoolie brush. Also check 100% Pure Creamy Long Last Liner*, an intense black for strong definition, that also holds well lining lashes and on the waterline.Use W3ll People Mascara or Ilia Mascara* from root to end.
Dab Gressa Skin Lipboost* on lips for a beautiful deep purple colour to finish the look. Or try Ilia Lip Conditioner in shade 'Lust for Life'. Use Ilia's Powder Brush* to mattify the T-zone if necessary with a little -tap of excess- Alima Pure Powder* in matching colour. To add a gorgeous sheen to the body we used Bodhi & Birch Gingerbrew oil*, inspired by Thai Massage the scent invigorates so you are ready for the day ahead.
