Pro Tips: Create a flawless base

Pro Tips: Create a flawless base

I’m going to let you in on a BIG secret…You don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to create a fabulously, flawless makeup base. Shhhhhhh! With just a little help Ere Perez and moi, you can create a photoshoot-ready base with minimal fuss, each and every day. Hooray!

 

STEP 1: Prep the base

When creating a work of art, it’s so important to have a clean, smooth canvas to begin with. The same principle applies to your skin!


◦ Firstly, make sure your face is clean, then prepare the skin with your moisturizer of choice. Gently press a small amount of oil or lotion onto your skin - this not only ensures there’s no excess product, but also brings blood-flow back to the surface, which will ensure you’re glowing from the get-go.
◦ Allow a few minutes for it to soak in before moving on to Step 2.

 

    STEP 2: Creating a beautiful foundation

    Now comes the fun part with Ere Perez’s gorgeous Natural Oatmilk Foundation and Eco Vegan Multipurpose Brush. When it comes to foundation application, consider this brush your new best friend.


    ◦ To create a flawless finish, blending and buffing is where it’s at! Start with a small amount of foundation on the brush and begin blending from the centre of the face, working outwards.
    ◦ Build coverage gradually - the last thing you want is that caked on look!
    ◦ Once you’re happy with the coverage, it’s time to buff it out baby! Work the brush in small, circular motions to gently push the foundation into your skin, so it’s looking seamless and melted in.

     

      STEP 3: Conceal the deal!

      Let me first kick a little concealer myth to the curb! Your concealer should NOT be a shade lighter than your foundation. It’s so important to colour match your concealer to your foundation to ensure blemishes become invisible rather than more visible. Ere Perez makes this even easier with their two tone Amazing Arnica Concealers - you’ve got no excuse for not having the right shade! TIP: To conceal with confidence, use the Ere Perez Eco Vegan Concealer Brush.

       

      ◦ Dip the smaller end into your concealer and gently apply with perfect precision to any dots or blemishes until they are beautifully blended.
      ◦ For the under eye area apply in little stripes and then use your ring finger to lightly blend into the delicate skin. The warmth from your fingers will help to blend and finish.

       

        STEP 4: Ready, set, go!

        Last, but by no means least, it’s time to set that flawless base in place with a dusting of Translucent Corn Perfecting Powder One for All.

         

        ◦ Use the Ere Perez Kabuki Brush to apply the powder in light, sweeping strokes.
        ◦ You can also add a little extra touch to any spots or blemishes you carefully concealed in Step 3 to give the concealer some super staying powder.

          Tip Profesional: Crea la Base Perfecta con Ere Perez

          Te voy a revelar un gran secreto… No tienes que ser maquillista profesional para crear una base de maquillaje perfecta. ¡Shhhhhh! Con tan sólo un poco de ayuda de Ere Perez y mía puedes crear una base de maquillaje para una sesión de fotos con el mínimo esfuerzo. ¡Yeiiiii!

           

          Paso 1: Prepara la Base

          Cuando realizas un trabajo de arte es importante tener un lienzo en blanco para empezar a trabajar. ¡Los mismos principios se aplican para tu piel!


          ◦ Primero, asegúrate de que tu rostro esté limpio, después prepara tu piel con el hidratante de tu elección. Presiona suavemente tu rostro con el aceite o hidratante -esto no sólo asegura que no haya exceso de producto sino también trae flujo de sangre a la superficie, lo que garantizará que tengas luminosidad en tu piel desde el primer momento.
          ◦ Espera unos minutos a que se absorba el hidratante, antes de pasar al paso 2.

           

            Paso 2: Crea la Base Perfecta

            Ahora empieza la parte divertida con el Maquillaje Fluido con Leche de Avena y la Brocha Eco Vegana Multiusos. Cuando se trata de aplicar el maquillaje fluido considera a esta brocha tu mejor aliada.


            ◦ Para un acabado impecable, ¡mezclar y difuminar es el secreto! Aplica un poco de maquillaje en la brocha y empieza a difuminar del centro del rostro hacia afuera.
            ◦ Construye la cobertura de manera gradual, no querrás quedar con una capa pesada de maquillaje.
            ◦ Una vez que estés contenta con la cobertura de la base, ¡es tiempo de pulirla! Realiza movimientos circulares con la brocha para adherir el maquillaje a tu piel, esto hará que no queden líneas y que se funda con tu piel.

             

              Paso 3: Corrige

              Primero quiero aclarar un mito acerca del corrector: el corrector no debe ser un tono más claro que la base de maquillaje. Es muy importante que el color del corrector coincida con el de la base de maquillaje para asegurar que las imperfecciones se vuelvan invisibles en lugar de más visibles. Ere Perez lo hace aún más fácil con sus Correctores de Árnica los cuales vienen en tonos dúos, ¡no tienes excusa para no tener el tono correcto! Tip: Para corregir con confianza, utiliza la Brocha Eco Vegana para Corrector y Labios.


              ◦ Utiliza el lado pequeño de la brocha para tapar pequeñas imperfecciones y manchas.
              ◦ Para cubrir manchas en el área de debajo de los ojos, aplica el corrector presionando con toques suaves, el calor de tus dedos ayudará a que el corrector se funda con tu piel.

               

                Paso 4: Sella tu Base

                Por último, pero no menos importante, es momento de sellar la base en su lugar con una capa de Polvo Translúcido de Maíz One for All.


                ◦ Utiliza la Brocha Kabuki para aplicar el polvo dando movimientos circulares suaves.
                ◦ También puedes aplicar un poco más de Polvo Translúcido de Maíz en las imperfecciones que ocultaste en el paso 3 para sellarlas por más tiempo.
