    PREP SKIN

    To get rid of shine, start by giving your skin the drink it deserves -  hyaluronic acid. Facestudio Prime Hydrating Primer works overtime to do just that, while providing extra grip for your foundation so your skin stays matte all day. Simply apply primer all over your face and watch as your foundation glides easily and evenly onto your skin.

    APPLY FOUNDATION

    Now for everyone’s favourite Maybelline foundation, Fit Me Matte + Poreless. To nail your application, apply a small amount of Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation to your forehead, cheeks and chin. Then, using a damp sponge or foundation brush, apply in light, circular strokes to smooth over pores for a seamless matte finish. Don’t forget to cover the hairline, jawline and neck for a more natural look. 

    Fit Me Matte + Poreless has a lightweight, breathable texture which is key for an everyday foundation. But if you’re after something with a little more stamina, SuperStay 24HR Foundation provides long-wear full coverage with a shine-proof guarantee.

    HIGHLIGHT & CONCEAL

    Once you’ve built your base, it’s time for those final touches. Say goodbye to blemishes and conceal anything that needs extra coverage with Fit Me Concealer. Using the precise applicator, dab the formula onto any imperfections and blend with your fingertips. You can also use a slightly lighter shade to highlight the high points of your face and cover dark circles. Rinse and repeat – or dot and blend – to achieve complexion perfection!

    CONTOUR

    Use SuperStay Multi-Use Foundation Stick  in two shades darker than your skin tone to add depth and emphasise your favourite features. Contour the cheekbones, sharpen the jawline, and warm up the perimeter of your face. Blend it out with the attached sponge – it’s not called multi-use for nothing!
