CLARINS EVER MATTE SHINE CONTROL FOUNDATION & MINERAL POWDER COMPACT
March 3, 2012
When every makeup trend is dewy skin do you think oil and shine. For those with oily skin they tend to suffer with makeup that, at the end of the day, disappears/slides off the face. Clarins'
new Ever Matte
collection combats the shine for a flawless application.
Ever Matte Skin Balancing SPF 15 Foundation and Shine Control Mineral Powder Compact complete the line of permanent products to the Clarins line. Both include Clarins' exclusive plant Micropatch Végétal that hydrates the areas of the skin that need moisture while controlling shine where you need it most. Additionally, two plant extracts Tanaka Powder and Carthusian Pink, help keep shine at bay all day while regulating sebum production.
"Foundation should not be used to re-create your skin, but enhance it. Finding the right shade of foundation is the most important step. Dab a small stripe of each colour you think is right on your jaw line, to see if the colour matches your skin." - Taylor Byers
Tips on applying foundation:
1. Use a brush to apply foundation. Brushes use less foundation and it allows for better coverage without the foundation looking cake-y. Sponges absorb too much product while fingers glob on too much foundation leading to that cake-y look.
2. Dab a few spots on the chin, on each cheek ( 2 on each side ) and on the forehead. Sweep with the brush toward the ears and toward the scalp.
3. Use press powder only on areas of the face where shine is the greatest.
Clarins Ever Matte Shine Control Foundation and Mineral Powder Compact is available at beauty counters across the country.
