The basics – cleansing first
It is important to cleanse the face before applying make-up – this clarifies the skin and makes the make-up easier to apply. Follow the Dr.Hauschka care regimen by cleansing, toning and moisturising as usual. A moisture-balancing foundation is very important at this cold time of year when the skin is exposed to weather-related stress.
The complexion – the best way to start
Begin with Dr.Hauschka Translucent Make-up. Apply the make-up in the desired shade, followed by Dr.Hauschka Translucent Face Powder loose or compact. This will help the look to last longer. The powder is best applied with a Dr. Hauschka Powder Brush. Before moving on to the eye make-up, apply a small amount of concealer in a colour that matches the skin tone to the inner corner of the eye.
In a blink of the eye
Apply a generous amount of Kajal Eyeliner 05 black along the upper and lower lashlines. For an intensive evening look, apply the eyeliner all the way to the lower inside edge. Now smudge the lines on the upper lid to the brow bone and to the outer corner of the eye. The light, creamy and smudged Kajal Eyeliner helps to keep the eyeshadow in place for longer. When smudging, the eyeliner should therefore be spread over the entire area where eyeshadow will be applied.
Now use a lightly dabbing, rolling motion to apply Eyeshadow 04 Taupe to the outer upper lid and the lower lid over the eyeliner. Smudge the eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye. Now use the subtly delicate Eyeshadow 09 Ivory to highlight the inner corner of the eye and under the eyebrow, blending well with a brush. Finally, brush the eyelashes with Volume Mascara Black. For a more intense result, apply again twice.
To define the cheeks, apply Rouge Powder 03 Rosé to the upper cheekbones. Place a small amount of Eyeshadow 09 Ivory on a Dr. Hauschka Rouge Brush and use gently circling motions to spread it from the cheek to the outer edge of the face. This will highlight the cheeks giving a rosy shimmer.
Lips – awakened with a kiss
Those who wish to keep their lips well moisturised can apply Dr.Hauschka Lip Balm or Lip Care Stick before putting on lipstick. Then use lightly dabbing motions to apply Lipstick 15 Violet Marble to the lips. This gives a romantic look of having been awakened with a kiss. Those who want to place a stronger emphasis on the lips can follow the lipstick with Lipliner 02 Warm Red.
Extra tip for long-lasting make-up:
Dr.Hauschka Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner are the ideal assistants. Apply a small amount to the face, spraying two or three times after the application of the make-up ensuring a more natural look as a result.
