how to choose and perfect your foundation

how to choose and perfect your foundation

 

We all know the first step to a gorgeous complexion is skincare; look after the skin you’re in and you’ll see and feel the benefits. 

But let’s face it, no matter how healthy our skin, none of us is perfect – so for the days when nothing but an absolutely flawless finish will do, our natural foundations are here for you. 

Ere Perez vegan, ethically made foundations work like a treat for everyone, but are especially developed for sensitive skin, so you can apply them with absolute confidence no matter your skin type. Smooth over blotchiness, pigmentation and acne scars in seconds with buildable coverage foundation that lasts. Whether you’re looking for a dewy finish or a matte finish, Ere Perez foundations are all natural, extra nourishing and super easy to use. 

That said, a little guidance can go a long way. Here’s what you need to know to nail it... 

 



Choose the right formula

To achieve a natural-looking base, picking the right formula for your skin type is everything. You need a foundation formula that leaves you still looking like you –just a little better. Choosing the right formula for your skin will also prevent your coverage from looking patchy as the day wears on. 

Our popular Oat Milk Foundation is a liquid formula that works wonders for combination skin, dry skin and mature skin. Ethically made from natural ingredients, it’s a high performing all rounder that’s safe for sensitive skin, blendable, and easily covers rosacea. It generally leaves a dewy finish, whilst still allowing the skin to breathe.

For something that’s lighter in texture, Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation is the go. This vegan water based foundation glides on with a light touch leaving a more matte finish, without drying out the skin. Though light enough to work with any skin type, the Quinoa Water Foundation is ideal for oily/teen skin. It offers buildable coverage to go from barely there to stronger pigmentation, and is great for preventing shininess from appearing on your cheeks or T-zone come afternoon.



Find your shade 

Choosing the right shade is critical in achieving a subtly flawless effect that enhances the skin it covers, rather than simply painting over it. 

With 8 shades of Oat Milk Foundation and 6 shades of Quinoa Water Foundation, you’ll be able to match your all natural foundation to your natural skin colour easily. 


Apply like an expert 

Prepare your skin by moisturising with Moringa All Beauty Crème. This classic all-rounder beauty cream will lightly moisturise and hydrate your face and neck, so your skin is evenly nourished and ready to receive that foundation!

For applying the Oat Milk foundation, our Eco Vegan Multipurpose Brush is easy, effective and no-mess.  

1. Put a little amount of product into your hand. 
2. Dot the product onto your face with the eco vegan multipurpose brush on cheeks, forehead, chin and along the nose.
3. Blend in with circle movements for an even coverage over the whole face.
4. For a more matte finish, set with Corn Translucent Powder. 

For applying the Quinoa Water Foundation, the Eco Vegan Kabuki Brush achieves best results, as its tightly compacted hairs can push the light formula around your face effectively. 

1. Using the glass dropper, apply a small amount of the foundation to the back of your hand. 

2. Take our eco vegan multipurpose brush, collect the foundation from the hand and apply to the face. Focus on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin.
3. Blend well.
4. Repeat steps until you have your desired coverage.


If you don’t have the brushes  – no stress. Your fingers can do the job too. Just make sure to wash and dry your hands thoroughly first.

Whichever formula or tool you use, remember it’s always easier to add more product when you need it rather than take it off when you’ve put too much! 

Finishing touches

This step is entirely optional – because if you’ve made it this far you’re already looking flawless and fabulous, nice one.

But when you know what you’re doing, make up application can be kinda fun. And since Ere Perez products are natural, vegan, cruelty free and kind on sensitive skin, applying a little more just feels… right!

So now is the time to add a few finishing touches. You might add a playful dab of colour to the lip and cheeks with our Carrot Colour Pot. Or maybe bring out some shimmer on the cheekbones with the silken Vanilla Highlighter. Or maybe you love your look as it is, and just want a little extra dewiness with a spritz of refreshing hydration mist from our Herbal Face Tonic. You do you.
