ACE YOUR BASE WITH CLAIRE HOWELL


Foundation Makeup Tips with Claire Howell

We didn’t call them Multi-Use Sticks for nothing! Australian beauty vlogger Claire Howell shows you how to use our Super Stay Multi-Use Foundation Stick in more ways than one, and shares a few of her insider tips and tricks.
  1. Primer:

    It’s probably the first product people ditch because of time or money constraints, but primers are the essential number one step to any flawless face. Sitting sneakily underneath your foundation every day, apply directly after your skincare routine, but before your makeup line-up (hence prime). Master Blur Primer Stick will smooth your complexion, blur your pores and will help your foundation stay on longer. Apply over the entire face and blend it out (read: rub it in).

  2. Conceal:

    Using the Superstay Multi-Use Stick in a shade that’s one or two shades lighter than your skin tone, apply underneath the eyes in a triangle shape, down the nose (including between the eyes to cover up any pimples), above the lip, on your chin and add two final swipes just above the jaw line.

  3. Cover:

    With the shade of Superstay Multi-Use Foundation Stick that best matches your skin tone, apply the stick formula around the outer edges of where you applied the lighter shade. Blend everything in using the sponge applicator on the other end of your stick.

  4. Contour:

    On to contouring! Pick a shade of City Bronzer that’s one to two tones darker than your skin. Draw along the outer areas of the face, including under the cheekbone, around the temples, along the hairline and on the tip of your nose. Dab and blend with the sponge. 

  5. Set:

    Set your base with Master Fix Translucent Setting Powder. Use a fluffy brush and tap off any excess product before applying. Sweep your brush in the direction your facial hair (we all have it!) grows. Work your way from the centre of your face out.

  6. Enhance

    You’ve finished your perfect base for your face, now it’s time to accentuate your best angles. Apply Fit Me Blush from the tip of your ear, diagonally towards your cheeks. You can also buff the apples of your cheeks. Finish with Master Chrome (Molten Gold is Claire’s FAVE shade), applying where the light naturally hits your face (the points on your forehead, nose and cheekbones).

  7. Complete

    Finish the look with a hint of colour on your lips using Baby Lips Lip Balm and Blush in Anti-oxidant Berry.
