Key Ingredients

Pomegranate Fruit Extract
Pomegranate fruit helps the skin to regenerate as well as having antioxidant properties. They also store a huge amount of moisture and vitality. The Pomegranate extract used in Dr. Hauschka Foundation is obtained by processing the entire fruit, including its skin.

Pomegranates not only taste good, they have a range of health benefits. Anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties have been ascribed to them. They’re also resistant to drought and can store much moisture and vitality in their fruit.

An age-defying ingredient

  • We process the whole Pomegranate fruit, including the Peel for our products, obtaining a preparation that promotes regeneration of the skin.
  • Pomegranate Peel is an important ingredient because its extract inhibits an enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of collagen in ageing skin.
  • At the same time, the extract activates an enzyme that’s involved in the production of collagen.
  • Pomegranate Seed Oil contained in the whole-fruit extract stimulates cell division in the keratinocytes, cells which produce the important skin-strengthening protein keratin.

Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is slow in penetrating the skin’s layers, it leaves the skin feeling soft and silky smooth all day. The coconut oil in Dr. Hauschka Foundation comes from a small farming project in Sri Lanka, which is certified by both Naturland and Fair For Life. This gives the formulation a stable, moisturising base.

Macadamia Nut Oil
Macadamia nuts take a very long time to ripen and are only ready when they fall from the tree of their own accord. Macadamia nut oil is absorbed easily by the skin and is unique among oils owing to the high amount of antioxidant palmitoleic acid that it contains.

The composition also includes nourishing Jojoba and Apricot Kernel Oil, Anthyllis which is a key ingredient to bring all skin conditions to a state of balance, protective Shea Butter and Candelilla Wax, provitamin A rich Carrot Root Extract and Silica to strengthen skin.

Tips from Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist

  • To find the right shade of Dr. Hauschka Foundation for you, apply three different shades on your cheekbones and choose the colour which blends best with your face and neck.
  • You should apply Foundation in small amounts starting with the forehead and then moving on to the nose, chin and cheeks – always work downwards to avoid emphasising pores and fine hairs.
  • Blend the transition between the neck, ears and hairline so that no edges are visible.
  • Because your skin will begin absorbing Foundation immediately, we recommend applying product from the top of the lid, rather than the back of your hand.
  • You can apply a second coat of Foundation for more coverage.
  • A moist sponge may be used for a lighter coverage, alternatively to achieve a more translucent make-up, mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser.
  • Applying and patting in the Foundation with a foundation brush helps to conceal redness and imperfections more effectively.

A nurturing base for an even complexion

For the Foundation to go on evenly, your skin should first be cleansed and moisturised. Otherwise, large amounts of Foundation will become concentrated on dry spots, creating an uneven result. Perhaps your lips, neck and the area under your eyes could use a little cream? This creates the optimum base for and even and long-lasting make-up.

Application and fixing

For seamless application, apply a little Foundation from your forehead down to your nose, as well as to your chin and cheeks. Always work downwards so as not to emphasise pores or tiny hairs. Next, spread the Foundation outwards to the sides of your face, blending in the areas of transition with your neck, ears and hair line.

Concealer before or after?

After! For greater coverage in specific areas or to conceal shadows on the inner corner of the eyes, add a little Concealer. But don’t cover up too much – leave the moles or freckles that are part of your beauty.

Why use Powder?

Powder helps to fix the liquid Foundation and enhances the staying power of your make-up. Use a Powder Brush to work a little loose power into your skin using downwards strokes. To create a more matte effect, you can press the powder onto your skin using a powder puff, gently rolling it back and forth. Powder Compact is a practical choice if you like to refresh your make-up while out and about.

Fingers, sponge or brush?

At hand temperature, Foundation spreads easily and harmoniously blends with your complexion. Please moisturise your hands well before use. This allows you to apply the Foundation evenly.

Easily, with a sponge

Application with a slightly damp sponge for speed of application.

Carefully, with a brush

When using a Foundation Brush, you can apply the Foundation to specific areas, increasing its ability to conceal blemishes.

Air brushed finish

Foundation Brush is great for giving an ‘air brushed’ finish, and for blending colour at jawline.

For a little extra glow

For a hint of summer sun-kissed freshness, mix a small amount of Translucent Bronzing Tint with your Foundation.

Mix shades

Different tones open up interesting opportunities: the shades can be combined in any way you like to create your very own, personal Foundation or adapt your usual shade to the time of year. A darker shade helps to emphasise your cheek area.

For a bit of quick refreshment

If you applied your Foundation a few hours ago, you can give your face a little extra hydration later in the day, Mist a small amount of Facial Toner onto your face.

Too much Powder or Foundation?

Spray a little Toner onto a Powder Brush and gently brush across your face.

For a long-lasting result, high colour correcting result

For longer-lasting results and a flawless complexion, apply a little Colour Correcting Powder to your face first, to colour correct and as a matte base for Foundation. Apply a little over the Foundation as well, to set your make-up.

How do you know if you have cool or warm toned skin?

Why is it important to know if you have warm or cool toned skin?

Because it makes it so much easier to choose fabric colours that look the most flattering on you, and choose shades of Lip Colour to enhance.

  • Cool toned skin (pink, red or blue undertones)
  • Warm toned skin (yellow, peachy, golden undertones)
  • Neutral toned skin (a mix of warm and cool undertones, however, most neutrals do tend to sway to either warm or cool)
The jewellery test

If gold jewellery is more flattering on you, then you have a warm toned skin.
If silver jewellery is more flattering on you, then you have a cool toned skin.

The vein test

If your veins appear greenish, then you have a warm toned skin.
If your veins appear blueish, then you have a cool toned skin.

The fabric test

If you look best in browns and off-white, then you’re warm toned.
If you look best in black and white, then you’re cool toned.

Dr. Hauschka NEW Make-up features six colour worlds that have been created for our Lip Shades: rose, pink, berry, red, apricot, and brown.

Within each colour world, we offer a light, medium and dark Lipstick, six Sheer Lipsticks and six Lip Glosses to align with our six lip colour worlds.

Lip Liner:
01 – rose
02 – pink and/or red
03 – berry
04 – brown
05 – apricot

Lipstick:
01 to 03 – rose
04 to 06 – pink
07 to 09 – berry
10 to 12 – red
13 to 15 – brown
16 to 18 – apricot

Sheer Lipstick and Lip Gloss:
01 – rose
02 – pink
03 – berry
04 – red
05 – brown
06 – apricot

Colours that are most flattering for warm toned skin

As a guide for Dr. Hauschka Lip Colours, choose from colour worlds.
red Lipsticks 10 and 11
brown Lipsticks 13, 14, 15
apricot Lipsticks 16, 17, 18

For example you would choose a yellow-based red lipstick, rather than a blue-based red lipstick.

Dr. Hauschka Lipstick 11 amaryllis is a yellow-based red

Colours that are most flattering for cool toned skin

rose Lipsticks 01, 02, 03
pink Lipsticks 04, 05, 06
berry Lipsticks 07, 08, 09

And red Lipstick 12 because it’s best to choose a blue-based red lipstick, rather than a yellow-based red lipstick.

How to Master Contouring and Highlighting in Easy Steps

screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-11-35-24-am

You’ll need: Your existing Dr. Hauschka Foundation plus Dr. Hauschka Foundation 05 nutmeg, Concealer 01 pale sandRouge Powder and Translucent Powder in loose or compact to set.

About Dr. Hauschka Foundation

If you want less coverage, more like a tinted moisturiser, then mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka moisturiser. For mid coverage then use one ‘coat’ and you’ll fine ‘dries’.  If you want more coverage just apply a second ‘coat’ of Foundation after the first coat ‘dries’.

TIP: A foundation blending brush is a must for a professional foundation ‘air brushed’ application.

When contouring and highlighting think – darker areas recede and lighter areas highlight

Step 1: Start with your face cleansed, toned and moisturised.

Step 2: Apply your usual Foundation all over, remembering to include eye area.

Step 3: Apply Foundation 05 with fingertip as shown in the brown areas in the above pic, then with a slightly damp beauty blender press, in a press and roll movement, into the base foundation to blend.

To find the correct place for the cheeks, feel with your finger for the hollow under the cheekbone.

Step 4: Apply Concealer 01 as shown in the white areas in the above pic and then press and roll into the base foundation with the other side of the beauty blender.

Step 5: Apply Translucent Translucent Powder with a fluffy Powder Brush to set.

Step 6: Smile and apply Rouge Powder with a Rouge Brush to the ‘apples’ of your cheeks and blend up and outwards. Our favourite at the moment is Rose Duo limited edition.

Step 7: Do eye make-up and lips

Step 8: Close eyes and mist your face with Toner, to set complete make-up and to leave a dewy finish.

10 Eye Makeup Tips To Enhance Your Eyes From Our Expert

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 4.45.00 PM

Your eyes dictate the shade

Tips from internationally renowned Dr. Hauschka makeup artist Karim Sattar

Before Dr. Hauschka makeup artist Karim Sattar picks up his brush, he looks deep into your eyes. “I determine the colour nuances of the iris and select Eyeshadows, Eyeliner and Mascara to match. In my line of work, ‘match’ means ‘correspond,’ not the same colour.

In the same way that I would not put a green picture in a green frame, I prefer to surround the eyes with complementary shades. It is this contrast that makes your eyes shine brighter.”

Tip 1. Choose Eyeshadows based on eye colour

Blue eyes love Eyeshadows with orange pigments: shades of gold, sand or brown. Green eyes look particularly beautiful when highlighted by red pigments: colours such as lilac or pink. Brown eyes are wonderfully uncomplicated: as brown contains all colours, all Eyeshadow colours match brilliantly.

Tip 2. Co-ordinate your Eyeshadows and your outfit

Skilfully applied eye make-up should correspond to a striking accessory rather than your clothing. For example, it should reflect the colour of a piece of jewellery, a handbag or pair of shoes.

Tip 3. Eyeshadows for people who wear glasses

Glasses on people who are near-sighted always make their eyes look slightly smaller. Bright, shimmering shades are therefore ideal as they widen the gaze. The cut of the lenses for far-sightedness makes the eyes look larger. If desired, this can be counteracted using matte, dark shades

Tip 4. Eyeshadows for drooping eyelids

Make-up can also be applied to drooping eyelids. However, the crease should be kept dark as darker areas stand out less. On the other hand, a lighter shade should be selected for the upper lid and inner corner of the eye. The eye make-up should also be rounded off by applying white Kajal to the inner rim of the bottom eyelid.

Tip 5. Use Eyeshadows to optimise proportions

If your eyes are positioned closely together, the illusion of a wider gap can be created by simply applying lighter shades to the inner corner of the eye and darker ones to the outer corner. If your eyes are further apart, apply the Eyeshadows the other way round: darker shades on the inner corner of the eye and lighter shades on the outer edges visually draw the eyes together.

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 4.52.49 PM

Tip 6. Combine Eyeshadows and Eyeliner

For particularly intense, long-lasting colour, use a brush to dab a little Eyeliner onto your eyelid and smudge it in before applying a suitably coloured Eyeshadow to the lid as usual.

Tip 7. Use Eyeshadows instead of Eyeliner

Instead of using Eyeliner, the lower eyelid can be highlighted using an Eyeshadow. This creates soft lines and smooth transitions to the lower lashes.

Tip 8. For the perfect finish

Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadows come in two different textures: Eyeshadow Solos combine colour with silky shine, while the four shades in the Eyeshadow Palette are designed to be matte, making them also ideal for eyebrows.

And to reduce shimmer or to add shimmer

Tip 9. To reduce shimmer of Eyeshadows

Use a brush to lightly dab a little Translucent Face Powder Compact onto your eyelids over your make-up.

Tip 10. To add shimmer to matte Eyeshadows

For deep colours with a shimmering finish, first apply one of the shades from the Eyeshadow Palette (e.g. 04 anthracite). Next, use the same brush to apply a little Eyeshadow Solo (in this case 04 taupe) to give the look a bit more sparkle.

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 4.57.58 PM

Extended Eyeliner Tips

Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 12.20.47 pm

Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s Extended Eyeliner Tips

Extended eyeliner can be tricky to achieve, so follow these simple steps for a dramatic look.

1) Sketch your line out first with Eyeliner Pencil 05 Black

2) Apply Liquid Liner Black over the pencil line and fill in as well

3) Apply Light Taupe* Eyeshadow to the crease

4) Dab a little Vanilla* Eyeshadow underneath to enhance the extended eye liner

5) Set the extended eyeliner by carefully pressing the Darkest Brown* for lasting power

6) Apply Volumising Mascara Black

7) Karim has used Rouge Powder Terracotta 04 on the ‘apples’ of her cheeks

8) A soft lip compliments such strong eye make-up, Karim has used Novum Nature Shimmer 04. Karim says this lip colour is one of his favourites “Adds natural shimmer and a sheer wash of freshly kissed colour!”

* Eye shadow colours are from our Eye Shadow Palette.
Our model’s skin was prepped first by Karim with Dr. Hauschka Foundation and Translucent Powder.

How to bring warm tones to your skin

Dr. Hauschka Decorate Cosmetic; Dr. Hauschka Dekorative Kosmetik
Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar

Adding warmth to your skin is an instant uplift!

We must add the colour back in after applying Foundation which evens your complexion, however looks flat without the addition of bronzer and/or blusher. Think of a child’s rosy cheeks.

  • Use our tinted moisturiser, Tinted Day Cream, ‘the original BB Cream’, which magically tones with all skin tones and adds sun-kissed warmth to your complexion. May be used on its own, with or without the addition of Translucent Powder or under Foundation.
  • Alternatively mix a little Translucent Bronzing Tint with your moisturiser, or with your Foundation.
  • Use matte Bronzing Powder on high points: cheeks, tip of nose and chin and also use down your neck if it needs it to tone in with your face.
  • Smile and apply Rouge Powder to the ‘apples’ of your cheeks.

Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 9.03.40 am

As we mature our skin may become a little pallid so it’s important to bring the colour back in.

Tip: Complete by misting your skin with Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner to ‘fix’ your make-up and to give it a fresh, natural look.

Make-up Mistakes & How To Rectify Them

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 12.25.23 pm
Model is wearing Foundation 01, Concealer 01, Translucent Face Powder Compact, Bronzing Powder, Rouge Powder 02, Kajal Eyeliner 01, Eyeshadow Solo 03 and 04, Kajal Eyeliner Duo 01 White, Eyeliner Liquid Black, Volume Mascara Black, Lipliner 03, Lipstick Novum 10.

1) Using an incorrect foundation shade

When your face doesn’t match your neck.

Solutions: Have your colour matching professionally done in store, but always check in daylight not under store lights. Don’t use the back of your hand to check colour, use your jaw line. Alternatively follow Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s Top Application Tips & Tricks Video. I find a Foundation Blending Brush works well to ensure colour blends onto neck.

Tip: You’ll find Dr. Hauschka NEW Foundations much easier to colour match. If you need more warm tones in summer just add a little Translucent Bronzing Tint to your Foundation.

Translucent tip: You can also mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser for a translucent look or apply with a moist sponge.

2) Dark lipliner with lighter lipstick

Solution: Ensure your lipliner matches your lipstick. Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, recommends applying lip liner all over the lips simply because lipstick comes off and liner stays put and outlined lips are not what you’re looking for.

3) Blush that looks like racing stripes or no blush at all

Solution: Smile and apply blush lightly to the ‘apples’ of your cheeks. Always use a big Powder/Blusher Brush which is better at distributing colour, shake off excess, then apply. Your aim is to get subtle colour in your cheeks, think of a child’s cheeks. We often see a flat make-up, with no blusher or bronzer. It’s important for a youthful make-up to add the colour back in after applying Foundation and Powder.

Model’s lip colour is Lipliner 01 and Lipstick 04

4) Applying too much powder

Powder is important to set your Foundation for a longer lasting make-up, however, it looks caked if too much is used.

Solution: Use a large Powder Brush, tap off excess, then apply downwards to smooth down fine hairs. Finish with a spritz of Dr. Hauschka Toner which takes away a powdery look and also helps to set your make-up.

5) Applying Make-up too soon after Moisturiser

Or applying make-up to skin that hasn’t been cleansed, toned and moisturised.

Solution: Wait while your day care product absorbs into the skin. I do my morning regime of Cleansing Cream, Toner and Moisturiser then have breakfast and get dressed so my skin care has plenty of time to absorb. The aim is to apply your make-up evenly on clean, nourished and protected skin.

Dr. Hauschka decorate Cosmetic; Dr. Hauschska Dekorative Kosmetik
Model is wearing Kajal Eyeliner Duo 01 Anthracite, Eyeshadow Solo 07 and 09, Rouge Powder 03, Volume Mascara Black.

6) Clumpy Eyelashes

Never pump your mascara which forces air into the tube and dries out the formula.

Solution: Dr. Hauschka Mascara and Volume Mascara are made with nourishing ingredients such as Candelilla Wax, precious Damask Rose Blossom Wax and Beeswax. Remember all mascaras, natural and organic or otherwise should be replaced every 3 months. Pop a reminder in your phone when you purchase a new mascara for 3 months time.

Tip: Karim Sattar our International Make-up Artist recommends using a softer colour than black on bottom lashes, because you don’t want to enhance anything downward for a youthful make-up. Try Pearl Anthracite or Aubergine Volume Mascara, or Brown Mascara.

7) Eyeliner lines

Keep it softer during the day, apply eyeliner pencil to the outer 1/3rd and blend inwards, then set with eye shadow and an angled brush. Anthracite is a soft black which is flattering for a day time make-up.

7 Tips To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Key Visual Dear Eyes_Press

1) Concealer
Dark circles can make your eyes appear smaller. Choose your Dr. Hauschka Concealer shade slightly lighter than your skin to brighten and correct any blue tones.

Tip: Apply Concealer to the inner eye only, wait a moment for it to absorb then blend, don’t apply to outer area where it’s likely to sit in any fine lines which will enhance them.

2) Liquid Eyeliner
Apply Dr. Hauschka Liquid Liner Black close as possible to your upper lash line, with a tiny flick at the end. This makes your lashes look thicker.

3) Mascara
Eyelash curlers are a must then Dr. Hauschka Volumising Mascara Black on top lashes, apply in a zig zag fashion to build volume. Try a softer colour on lower lashes such as Aubergine or Anthracite (soft black).

Screen Shot 2015-01-03 at 10.19.49 am

4) Eyeliner Pencil
Eyeliner Pencil on the water line can make your eyes look much smaller. Colour the waterline with a white pencil to instantly open and brighten eyes.

Apply Eyeliner Pencil to the outer 1/3rd and blend inwards to achieve a wide eyed look.

5) Define the Crease
Use matte eye shadow, our Eye Shadow Palette is perfect, and ensure you apply from the outer corners towards the inner, apply with a brush and blend.

6) Highlight
Dab light colour under brows, such as Eye Shadow Solo 09, centre of lids and particularly to the inner corner where there is a natural valley and shadow beside the nose, this helps to make eyes look wide awake.

7) Brows
Brows really frame your eye, get them professionally shaped and tinted. Eye Shadow Palette our multi tasking product works well for brows, apply colour with an angled brush. For additional brow grooming use a smidgen of Eye Balm to hold hairs close to the skin.

3 Dos & Don’ts for a Youthful Make-up

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 3.54.22 pm

Tips from Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist

1) Don’t use black mascara on bottom lashes, too harsh and downward for the longer bottom lashes which adds years, you want your make-up to be uplifting

Do use softer colour mascara on your lower lashes

We recommend soft black Pearl Anthracite Volume Mascara, pretty Aubergine Volume Mascara, Blue or Brown Mascara for lower lashes. Try using a different colour from black for your Kajal Eye Pencil too. We love Aqua as a complementary colour for enhancing brown eyes, Brown for enhancing blue/green eyes or try Anthracite Kajal Eye Pencil for a softer black.

2) Don’t use glittery eye shadow

Do use matte eye shadow

As we get older a matte eye shadow is much more flattering. Always apply light colours in the natural valley at the inner corner of the eye by your nose and always apply your crease colour from outwards to inwards, not the other way around. Perfect choice is Dr. Hauschka’s Eye Shadow Palette of matte colours.

3) Don’t overdo powder

Do powder in a downwards direction as you don’t want to enhance your facial hair, and set by misting Toner, which also gives a more natural look to your make-up.

In general use less make-up as you get older. You don’t want powder sitting in creases. Apply foundation with a foundation blender brush for an ‘airbrushed’ finish and tap your powder brush to remove excess powder and apply downwards.

Tips:

Apply a little of your blusher colour to underneath the brow which gives an instant uplift to your look, taking off years.

To achieve a more translucent make-up, mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 3.52.46 pm

1. Hydration for a plump, uplifted skin, drink water, coconut water, green tea, herbals teas, eat watermelon. Warm water and lemon juice first thing every morning helps to keep skin clear.

2. Schedule a monthly Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka trained Esthetician.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 12.22.17 pm

3. Remember Body Care, Hand and Nail Care and Foot Care too, especially if you’re wearing strappy shoes with heels on show. Moisturising is key and once you use Dr. Hauschka Body Moisturisers it’s hard to accept anything of lesser quality. Natural and organic ingredients are just as important for your body. We love Quince Body Moisturiser for its cooling, soothing and deeply hydrating qualities, Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Moisturising for its refreshing and energising aroma and After Sun is another of our summer time favourites. For a mature bride then choose Regenerating Body Cream for its firming and toning as well as deeply nourishing abilities.

If your feet are dry, particularly check your heels, use Hydrating Foot Cream, however if you have feet with a tendency to perspire then use Deodorising Foot Cream. Hand Cream and Neem Nail Oil Pen are a must.

4. Kissable lips with regular use of Lip Care Stick or Lip Balm.

5. Clean your make-up brushes weekly to avoid acne causing bacteria and to ensure true colours. Always clean your brushes in an ecological gentle hand wash or body wash and dry flat not upstanding. As for pimples always have Coverstick on hand for concealing and treating, incredible product!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 2.17.40 pm

6. Get your beauty sleep.

7. Regular exercise, 30 minutes daily in the fresh air will do. Movement supports your body’s lymph system.

8. Nutrition, eat fresh, organic wherever possible. Read 15 Top Foods for Healthy Skin

9. It’s really important to reduce stress. If you’re not already then meditate daily, do yoga, tai chi, read a great book, spend time with great friends, whatever it takes, as stress shows on your face.

10. We want your skin looking radiant for your big day. Ideally you need to be taking extra special care of your skin 1 year out, however if you don’t have that amount of time adopt these skin care rituals as soon as possible. A healthy, balanced, vibrant skin comes from using the highest quality natural and organic ingredients, not synthetic chemicals.

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 4.19.40 pm

Recommendations:

1) Dr. Hauschka every morning ritual: Cleanse, Tone or use Intensive Treatment & Moisturise
2) Dr. Hauschka every evening ritual: Cleanse, Tone or use 1 ampoule of Conditioner, or Intensive Treatment
3) Once a week, maybe a Sunday night, Cleanse, Clarifying Steam Bath, Clarifying Clay Mask and follow with Revitalising Mask which benefits all skin conditions
4) Another night of the week Cleanse early in the evening, apply Revitalising Mask and include eye contour area, leave to absorb for as long as possible and remove with a warm, moist cloth prior to bedtime

Tip: We recommend Soothing Intensive Treatment morning and evening instead of Toner one month out from wedding for hypersensitive skin or a skin suffering from any stress condition.

10 Wedding Make-up Tips

1. Do your brow, upper lip and any other facial waxing at least 3 days before the wedding
2. Avoid products that use SPF, they tend to give very pale look in photographs
3. Use a matte moisturiser on the day, Melissa Day Cream has a very matte finish and helps to control shine or Rose Day Cream Light
4. For a long lasting make-up go for our International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s technique of:
a) Translucent Make-up 00 as a primer
b) Concealer, inner eye only, not outer eye
c) Translucent Powder Loose, applied with Powder Brush and tapped to remove excess before applying
d) Translucent Make-up in your shade, always apply with a foundation blender brush for that ‘air-brushed’ look
e) Translucent Powder again, applied with Powder Brush and tapped before applying. Think less is more, you don’t want a caked look.
5. Blusher and Bronzer is a must.
6. Take it easy on the shimmer. Highlight on cheek bones and/or brow bone is flattering but too much shimmer doesn’t photograph well
7. Set your lipstick with Karim’s technique:
a) Apply Lipliner over the entire lip area, don’t do outlines
b) Apply Lipstick
c) ‘Kiss’ a tissue to remove excess
d) Apply Translucent Powder Loose with the powder puff
e) Apply Lipstick again
f) Apply a dap of Rose or Cherry Gloss mid bottom lip
8. Consider false lashes rather than mascara for the big day. Individual lashes are more natural looking, but always trial before the wedding day
9. Have a Translucent Powder Compact with you for touch-ups. Oily shine doesn’t photograph well, you need to keep skin matte
10. Keep in mind if you’re wearing white you will need enough colour happening in your make-up to compensate for the whiteness of your dress. Always do a trial run of your make-up wearing white, tee shirt will do, prior to the day.

Radiance Make-up by Karim

Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 9.51.27 am

Shine with Radiance

The festive season beckons once again. During this special time of year, a woman likes to shine. And a radiant, shimmering make-up puts her in the spotlight for a memorable appearance. It underscores her inner radiance, which glows even brighter than the festive lights, and turns a holiday celebration into a five-star occasion.

This year, the colours of the season are soft, natural and warm. They glimmer and shine, revealing the inner spark that is within every woman – in keeping with the festive spirit. Internationally renowned Dr. Hauschka Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar, has created a vivacious make-up look specifically for such special occasions, dominated by shades of gold, sand and brown accentuated with a delicate rosé. It showcases an even complexion and extremely dramatic, shining eyes. Fresh, gently shimmering lips add a luminous note. He also combines delicate rosé with a hint of ivory for a festive, radiant glow on the cheeks.

Karim Sattar guides you through the steps to create the perfect look for special occasions.

Start with an even complexion

“Ideally, you should start with foundation. Use a foundation brush or a make-up sponge to apply a small amount of Dr. Hauschka Translucent Make-up 00 as a ‘primer’This shade suits almost every skin tone, evens out the complexion, and provides the perfect base for the second nuance of colour that is actually part of the look.

Select the Translucent-Make-up shade that is best for your colouring – Pale Sand (01), Beige Rosé (02), Suntan (03) or Mocca (04). This will enliven your face with a touch of freshness. Follow with Translucent Face Powder Loose to set the make-up, placing a small amount on the powder puff and using it to mattify the face as desired.”

Dramatic eyes

“First use Kajal Eyeliner 04 Soft Brown to highlight the lower lashline and the upper eyelid. Apply the Kajal Eyeliner along the crease of the upper lid, covering about one-third from the outside working inward, as well as along the lower lashline. In addition, use Kajal Eyeliner to fill in the space between the lashline and the crease of the lid and gently smudge it on the upper eyelid up to the crease and on the lower eyelid to the inner corner of the eye.

Next, apply Eyeshadow Solo 04 Taupe to the upper eyelid in the outer corner of the eye and to the lower eyelid, gently smoothing in the eyeshadow.

For sparkling highlights, apply Eyeshadow Solo 01 Golden Sand to the inner part of the upper eyelid and under the eyebrow.

Finally, apply Eyeshadow Solo 02 Golden Earth in the centre of the eyelid to gently blend the colours. For best results, use a blender brush to finish the look.

To strongly accentuate the lashline, use Kajal Eyeliner 04 Soft Brown to draw a line along the edges of the upper and lower eyelids and carefully blend it in. Then apply the white eyeliner from Kajal Eyeliner Duo 01 White/Anthracite to the inner lower eyelid to make the eyes look larger and more alert.

If you want to give the eyes an even more dramatic touch, apply Eyeliner Liquid Brown along the upper lashline. Start at the middle of the upper lashline, first dabbing inward towards the corner of the eye, then turn the brush and work from the middle towards the outside.

Tip: Two layers of Volume Mascara 01 Black add the final polish to this five-star look.

This season, the focus is on the eyebrows

Use a eyebrow brush for shaping, then choose a shade from Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow Palette 01 that matches your hair colour and apply it to the eyebrows. Colour 02 Mushroom is suitable for lighter hair; for darker hair, I recommend colour 03 Taupe. After applying, use Dr. Hauschka Eye Contour Day Balm to set the colour. This not only showcases the eyebrows, but also hydrates a part of your skin that tends to be dry.

Delicate cheeks that sparkle and shimmer

Apply Rouge Powder 03 Blushing Rosé to the upper cheekbones for a fresh, vibrant look. Achieve shimmering highlights by moistening Eyeshadow Solo 09 Ivory slightly and dabbing it onto the upper cheekbone using a make-up sponge. This gives you a fresh, dewy appearance which will turn heads.

The finishing touch – shining, rosy lips

Outline your lips with Lipliner 03 Soft Rosé. Next, use Lipstick 01 Soft Coral to entirely fill in both lips. For a festive shine, finish the look by applying Lip Gloss 01 Rose to the lips.

Now your radiant, shimmering make-up is complete – guaranteed to put you in the spotlight and make the evening an unforgettable occasion!”

Make-up tips for a sun-kissed look

Our international Dr. Hauschka make-up artist, Karim Sattar, loves using Bronzing Powder to highlight the contours of the face and subtly emphasise areas such as the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Here are his make-up tips for creating a beautiful, sun kissed look.

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 4.22.07 pm

Every Day Glow 3 Minute Make-up

Complexion

Dip a brush in the Bronzing Powder and then tap it lightly on the back of your hand. Highlight the areas of your face that best catch the sun by dusting the powder onto your forehead, nose, chin and cheeks. Gently sweep the colour outwards using circular motions.

Eyes

Apply Eyeshadow 01 Golden Sand to your entire upper eyelid, gently blending it towards your eyebrows. Next, apply Eyeshadow 02 Golden Earth to just your eyelid crease to give your eyes some extra depth. Volume Mascara Black makes your eyes look wider for added sparkle. Only apply it to your upper lashes.

Lips

Apply Lipstick Novum 09 Miraculous Rose to your lips to perfectly complete this fresh daytime look. You’re ready to go.

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 1.42.20 pm

Subtle Night Glow Make-up

Complexion

Prime your face with Translucent Make-up and apply Concealer to your lower and upper eye areas to hide any blemishes. Next, use a powder brush to evenly apply a mixture of Bronzing Powder and Translucent Face Powder compact , working downwards from your forehead.

Eyes

Apply Eyeshadow 09 Ivory to your entire upper eyelid, gently blending it towards your eyebrows. Next, apply Eyeshadow 04 Taupe to your eyelid crease, taking the colour to the upper edge of your eyelid at the corner of your eye. Now apply Black Liquid Eyeliner to your upper lashes, running it in a straight line to the corners of your eyes. Apply two coats of Volume Mascara Black , not forgetting your lower lashes in the evening.

Cheeks

Apply Rouge Powder 03 Rosé to your cheek bones and accentuate your lower cheek area with Bronzing Powder.

Lips

Apply a small amount of Lipstick 07 Transparent Rosé before pressing your lips together and filling in any remaining areas. Dab a little Lip Gloss 01 Rose onto the middle of your lips.

Elegance Make-up by Karim

Dr. Hauschka decorate Cosmetic; Dr. Hauschka Dekorative Kosmetik

We want you to shine, by looking simply elegant and full of self-confidence.

Internationally renowned Dr. Hauschka Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar has developed an elegant make-up look. Karim places a spotlight on our most expressive features, the eyes and the mouth. In addition to an even complexion, the look is dominated by light ivory on the eyelids and black eyeliner around the eyes and volumising black mascara on the lashes. For an expressive contrast Karim uses a warm red on the lips, with lipliner in the same colour providing dynamic accents.

Elegant Make-up

Karim describes each step in achieving the perfect look

Begin with an even complexion “We start with Translucent Make-up 00 Porcelain. This colour serves as a foundation to make the face appear lighter and bring out its radiance. We follow this with Translucent Make-up in a different shade to conceal redness and minor imperfections. Select the colour that best matches your natural skin tone. Concealer 01 can be used to cover up any blemishes or rings under the eyes – it may be helpful to apply it to the entire nose and mouth area as well. To set the creamy make-up, use the powder puff to pat Translucent Face Powder compact evenly onto the face. This results in a more even, balanced complexion and gives you a longer-lasting look.”

Bronzing Powder creates sun-kissed highlightsBronzing Powder adds a sun-kissed warmth to your look. Begin in the middle of the forehead and work your way down to the chin using circular motions – first on one side, then the other. Bronzing Powder is also ideal for adding contours to the face, giving it a more harmonious appearance. If your face is round, for example, you can use the Powder Brush to apply it to the lower cheek area. To determine the right placement, use the cheekbone as your guide and apply the powder about one thumb-width below it. Then, working from the edge of the face inwards, spread the powder as far as the side of your nose.”

A dab of warm red for glowing cheeks “To keep the focus on the eyes and lips, we only apply a touch of rouge. But the cheeks should still have a healthy glow. We achieve this with Rouge Powder 04 soft terracotta for warm toned skin or Rouge Powder 03 blushing rose for a cool toned skin. Starting at the temples, blend it down towards the top of the cheekbones.”

Glamorous eyes

Screen Shot 2014-08-02 at 3.19.42 pm

Karim’s Tip: Use Eyeshadow 09 ivory to apply shimmering highlights to the temples and cheeks.

“This look showcases the eyes, although make-up is only applied to the upper lid. I have selected a pale shade for the lid and dark tones for the contours. Apply Eyeshadow 09 ivory to the entire upper lid, blending it upwards past the lid crease to fade to the brow. Accentuate the crease of the eyelid using 02 light brown from the Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow palette, applying the colour back and forth in a gentle curve along the crease to create a light shadow. Round off the look using the darkest shade from the Eyeshadow palette, 04 anthracite. Use the Eye Definer Brush to dab this colour along the upper lash line, where it should be followed by Liquid Black Eyeliner. Apply using the Eye Definer Brush starting at the middle of the upper lash line, first dabbing towards the inner corner of the eye and then from the middle towards the outside. Once in place, the eyeshadow serves as a helpful guide for applying Dr. Hauschka Eyeliner Liquid Black. This should now be dabbed over the eyeshadow, first working inwards from the middle and then, after turning the brush, outwards from the middle. Finish by using Eyeliner to draw a curve upwards along the outer lash line. Apply Volume Mascara black to the lashes. Depending on the desired intensity, brush onto the upper lashes up to three times; the lower lashes should only be brushed once lightly. The colours 02 light brown, 03 soft grey and/or 04 anthracite from the Eyeshadow palette can also be used to fill in the eyebrows. Select the shade that best matches your hair colour. Brush the eyeshadow gently into the eyebrows to highlight and shape them.

Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist

Karim’s Tip: Eye Balm adds an extra sparkle. Simply place a small amount on a brush and work it into the eyebrows.

The finishing touch: warm red on the lips

Screen Shot 2014-08-02 at 3.21.02 pm

“First, use Lipliner 02 warm red to contour the lower lip, then press the lips together firmly. This leaves an impression on the contour of the upper lip that can easily be intensified. Next, fill in the lips completely using Lipliner. This sets the lipstick and lends more depth to its colour. It also keeps the lipstick from running. Now apply Lipstick 04 warm red to the entire lower lip, press the lips together, and apply again to completely cover the lips. Repeat these steps. Next, blot using a tissue, leaving the tissue on the lips and apply powder to the lips using a powder puff. Remove the tissue and repeat the application using the Lip Brush and a fresh application of Lipstick 04.

Karim’s Completion Tip: Use Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner to set your make-up, spraying lightly onto the face from a distance of some 30 centimetres.

Night Out Make-up

festive make-up autumn/winter 2012; Festtags Make-up Herbst/Wint

by Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist

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.

Lip Service

Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 9.06.27 pm

For some it meant a chance for divinity, for others a reason for divorce or even a risk of death. For lipstick to be triumphant, it truly had to run the gauntlet. In the end though, it won over women’s lips and hearts.

The tradition of lip decoration is an age-old one: the ancient Mesopotamians were the first women to adorn their lips, and did so with crushed gemstones. During excavations in the Sumerian city of Ur, researchers uncovered a kind of lip ointment from 3500 BC. This is the oldest such find to date.

Whether warriors or queens, the ancient Egyptians also decorated their lips to resemble their gods. For upper class Roman and Japanese women, lip colour was even mandatory as it distinguished them from commoners. Conversely, the ancient Greeks saw nothing noble in make-up. In their culture, red lips were also a form of social segregation, but here it was artists and prostitutes who had to wear make-up so that they could be easily distinguished.

While ointments and waxes were initially used, the use of sticks was introduced in the Baroque era. Coloured particles, often acquired from crushed red cochineal insects, were mixed with ground alabaster or plaster to form a paste. This was rolled into shape and dried in the sun. Catherine the Great was even more innovative and chose a brand new kind of beauty regime: the Russian Empress commanded her serving ladies to suck as hard as possible on her lips and lightly bite them. This enhanced their blood circulation and made them look visibly swollen.

Few men could resist sensual lips. In 1770, the British parliament therefore intervened and ruled that women who lured men with red lips and trapped them into marriage were liable to prosecution. All marriages based on such situations could be annulled. During the French Revolution, this beauty regime not only made women liable to prosecution but also put their lives at risk; anyone with red lips was exposed as an aristocrat, with the possible sentence of death by guillotine.

The turning point
100 years later the turning point finally came: in 1883, the lipstick was born. A Parisian perfume manufacturer presented the Stylo d’Armour made from beeswax, castor oil and deer tallow at the world exhibition in Amsterdam. As it was extremely expensive and only wrapped in tissue paper, it was initially ridiculed as a ‘Saucisse’ or little sausage. Despite this, the French actress Sarah Bernhardt openly used the lipstick in public and actively advertised the cosmetic utensil.

In 1948, the lipstick finally gained its practical metal sheath with a slide mechanism and became a basic commodity. After more than 5,500 years, the application of lipstick is today the a make-up ritual that is publicly acceptable everywhere in the world according to rules of etiquette.

Lipstick – Make-up tips from Karim Sattar
What should I consider when applying lipstick?

Smile wherever possible – tightening the lips makes it easier to apply lipstick. I also recommend that you use a lip brush. This is not just for hygiene reasons and more precise application but also because the resulting colour is far more intense.

How should I choose a shade of lipstick?
The fabulous thing about Dr. Hauschka lipsticks is that they look different on different people. That means that even if your best friend is wearing the same lipstick as you, the colour will appear different. Lipsticks can therefore be freely selected to meet your taste or match accessories such as jewellery, a handbag or a scarf.

How can I achieve longer lasting lip colour?
Apply the lipliner and lipstick as usual then press a tissue between your lips. Next, use a powder pad to dab your lips with Translucent Face Powder loose then reapply the lip products.

Model is wearing: Lipliner 06 Aubergine, Lipstick 15 Violet Marble, Lip Gloss 01 Rose

1) Apply Lipliner to the entire surface area of your lips. The shape of your lips determines the contour line.

2) Apply Lipstick over the Lipliner. The shape of your lips also determines the choice of colour.

Tip: You will always get a better result using a Lip Brush and smile while you apply.

3) To fix the lipstick, blot on a tissue to remove excess product. Use a powder pad to apply a little Translucent Face Powder to fix the lipstick in place, and then to finish, apply a second coat of lipstick.

Tip: We love a touch of Rose or Cherry Gloss over the top place mid bottom lip to enhance a pout.

Full lips: apply Lipliner to the inner lip contour. Choose darker, matte shades: Lipstick 04, 13, 15, 16.

Thin lips: apply Lipliner to the outer lip contour. Brighter, shimmering shades are the right choice: Lipstick 01, 04, 07.

Uneven lip contour: use the Lipliner to correct any areas of unevenness. Select transparent, shimmering colours: Lipstick 01, 03, 07.

HOT TIPS for a long lasting eye line

1) Moisten an angled brush with water

2) Pick up colour with your brush from just the one corner of the darkest shade in your Stone Colours Eyeshadow Palette.

3) With your brush apply a line to the lower lash line from outer to inner, starting a little further out than the outer edge of your eye.

4) You’ll need to pick up more colour with your brush, then apply to the upper lash line from the outer to the inner and beginning from the extended colour from your lower lash line so the two meet.

5) Define your brows with the residual colour left on the brush.

And for those of you that prefer a more defined line…

1) Use Stone Colours Eyeshadow Palette for your eyeshadow, using a little of the darkest colour close to your lower lash line, with an angled brush is best for application.

2) Apply Kajal Eye Pencil Black close to the upper lash line, smudge and use darkest colour eyeshadow to set.

3) This technique will make the application of a Liquid Liner much more forgiving.

4) Apply Liquid Liner Black close to the upper lash line.

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice every morning on waking to help keep your skin clear. Even better to add a little organic apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of honey in as well!
Resolve to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water every day to keep your skin plump and hydrated.

Lemon Tip: When lemons are in season juice plenty and freeze small amounts in ice cubes. Pop an ice cube in a cup at night so it’s quick and easy for the morning.

Hydration Tip: A small amount of apple juice with your glasses of water assists hydration.

2) Compress and Hydrate your skin prior to cleansing for a much deeper cleanse. Skin will feel silky soft and you will be using cleansing products much more economically too.

3) Remember to complete both morning and evening cleanse with a cool compress or a cool splash.

Why?
This simple technique contracts a tiny muscle beside the hair follicle, thus helping to wash away any remaining dirt or make-up and keeps your skin soft, without having to use harsh exfoliants which disrupt your 28-30 day skin cell cycle which just renders your skin more prone to sensitivities and sun damage. Those outer cells are important protectors and should only naturally slough off when they’re ready.

4) Once a week give your skin a Facial Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask treatment for the deepest cleanse to keep your skin looking clear and healthy. I think a Sunday night works well for this treatment, helps to keep me in the habit too.

Tip: Use Cleansing Sponge to re-moisten Cleansing Clay Mask after it’s dried, it’s no longer active once dry, then the Mask will be removed easily and efficiently with Cleansing Sponge.

5) After Facial Steam Mask and Cleansing Clay Mask apply a Cream Mask, which absorbs into the skin particularly well at this time. Cream Mask application should be done a second time during each week.

Tip: For your second Cream Mask application during the week. Cleanse nice early in the evening, apply Cream Mask, remembering with this mask you also apply around eye contour as an ‘eye mask’ as well. Leave on as long as possible, removing with a warm, moist cloth before bed.

Cream Masks:
Rejuvenating Mask – benefits all skin conditions, refining pores and making a noticeable difference
Moisturising Mask – Dryness or dehydration, may also be used as a day cream also for ‘parched’ dry skin
Soothing Mask – Sensitive, red, irritated skin, also helpful to use a day cream for rosacea
Firming Mask – a warming mask with the power of rose in all it’s forms to firm and tone

7)  Never use heavy, occlusive face night creams that impede your skin’s night time functions nor use eye creams overnight as that usually just results in puffy eyes in the morning.

8) Complete a 30 night treatment with Rhythmic Night Conditioner instead of Toner at least in the two most transitional seasons of autumn and spring. Ideally one treatment each season. A skin cell cycle is 28-30 days

9) We recommend a Classic Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka Trained Esthetician at the beginning of the year to check in with your skin condition/concerns and receive an updated product prescription to ensure you’re investing in the best products and regime for optimum results.

Skin is dynamic, it changes with age, the seasons, lifestyle factors, hormonal influences such as puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, post natal and menopause. I even use different day care in the week from the weekend, because my environment is different.

10) Treat yourself to natural and organic Body Products too that will nourish your skin and your senses, providing moisture and aromatic support.

The skin is your body’s largest organ, and it’s semi-permeable, so yes, only natural and organic body care as well as face care.

11) At the beginning of the year do a Make-up Clean-up and during the year attend a Dr. Hauschka Make-up Event to learn if you have cool toned or warm toned skin, to ensure you’re buying colours that best suit you. Learn application techniques and try out a new look.

In store Events for Skin Care Consultation and/or Make-up run from February to November each year and they’re advertised in our e-Newsletter and on Facebook. 

Tip: Remember mascara should be thrown out after 3 months, natural or otherwise, for hygiene reasons. New one beginning of January, April, July & October.

12)  Clean your make-up brushes every second week. Hygiene with skin care is so important. And Dr. Hauschka make-up is colour as well as care for your skin.

Good quality brushes give you a professional, long-lasting make-up. Look after this investment and they will last years and years.

Tip: Always lay your brushes flat after cleaning to dry. If they are standing upwards they don’t hold their shape as well and moisture gets into the glue.
