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

As a guide for Dr. Hauschka Lip Colours, choose from colour worlds.
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.

Hot Weather Make-up Tips

Screen Shot 2016-01-26 at 2.43.38 PM

 

Always cleanse, tone and moisturise before applying makeup. You may wish to use a matte moisturiser such as Rose Day Cream Light or Melissa Day Cream if you have a Combination Oily T-Zone skin condition. Leave your moisturiser to absorb prior to makeup application.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.48.30 PM

For a long lasting makeup go for our International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s technique of…

1) Foundation 01 as a ‘primer’
2) Concealer, inner eye only, not outer eye where it’s likely to sit in fine lines
3) Translucent Powder Loose, applied with Powder Brush and tapped to remove excess before applying
4) Apply Foundation in your shade, applying with a foundation blender brush for that ‘air-brushed’ look. Yes, after powder, for long lasting makeup.
5) Translucent Powder again, applied with Powder Brush and tapped before applying, think less is more, you don’t want a caked look
6) Apply Bronzing Powder and Blusher
7) Set your makeup by misting Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner
8) If need be use Translucent Powder Compact during the day

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 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, if it’s not too dark. Alternatively, choose one of the two lighter taupe colours in the Eyeshadow Palette
6) Set and keep lines soft with dry powder over the top

And if you prefer a more defined upper lash line…

1) Use 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) Apply Liquid Liner Black close to the upper lash line. This technique will make the application of a Liquid Liner much more forgiving.

Set your lipstick with Karim’s technique…

1) Apply Lipliner over the entire lip area, don’t do outlines
2) Apply Lipstick
3) ‘Kiss’ a tissue to remove excess
4) Apply Translucent Powder Loose with the powder puff
5) Apply Lipstick again
6) Apply a dab of Rose or Cherry Gloss mid bottom lip only
