We would always recommend a primer as they have skin benefits, extend the wear of your makeup & can enhance the finish of your foundation. We have primers for a variety of skin types, desired finishes and benefits for you to choose from that will perfect your overall look.
A general rule to remember when it comes to contour and highlighting - contour is where shadows naturally fall on the face and highlight is where the light naturally hits your face. Typically we will highlight our cheekbones, bridge of the nose, forehead and sometimes the chin area and typically we will contour under the cheekbones, sides of the nose, perimeter of the forehead and the jawline. We recommend using our Highlight and Contour Pro Palette to achieve your desired look.
There are five different skin types that you can identify with, these include: normal, combination, dry, dehydrated and oily. For each one there are identifiers that allow you to figure out which one you have. If you tend to have a shiny complexion specifically in the t-zone area you will have oily skin. If you have flaky, tight or scaly skin you will have dry skin. If you have shiny and dry areas on your skin you will have combination skin. Dehydrated skin is typically the hardest to identify. If you feel like after washing your face with water or being in the shower your skin feels tight but throughout the day gets slightly oily, you will most likely have dehydrated skin. This is because your skin is lacking hydration so will produce oil to compensate. If you don’t experience any of these with your skin you will have a normal skin type.
We recommend you stand in front of natural light or as a bright place as possible. Apply your chosen product or products and move around to see the shade with different settings and light
