Your foundation choice will depend on your skin type, the coverage you'd like to achieve and the texture you prefer.

A great one for sheer to medium coverage with a slightly luminous look: (mineralize satin finish SPF15 foundation)-(190 foundation brush).

If you like a medium to full coverage but still with a natural satin finish (studio sculpt SPF 15)-(190 foundation brush).

Skin that produces more oil tends to need a matte finish, for a long-wearing medium-full coverage (studio fix fluid SPF 15)-(188 stippling brush).

Concealer is usually used for more targeted areas of coverage such as around the eyes and blemishes.

The colour and texture of the concealer depends on the area of use. For coverage round the eyes, colour theory will come into play; if you have a bluish tint in this area then a warmer pink base will counteract the blue (in mac concealers the warmer tones are represented with NW).

(Select moisturecover)-(217 blending brush) is a beautiful concealer for round the eyes and the face as it gives good coverage without looking too heavy; it has a satin-smooth ultra-moisturized finish.

For a matte finish, long wearing concealer (select cover-up)-(217 blending brush) - good to use over eye lids before eye shadow to reduce redness.

Or full coverage for problem areas such as spots- (studio finish SPF 35 concealer).

To lock foundation and concealer in place, set them with a powder especially around the eyes to stop them gathering and creasing.

For a dimensional yet natural matte finish that’s not dry or powdery looking (mineralize skinfinish natural).

Or for shine prone skin (blot powder); only 3% colour so great for touch-ups, contains Mica and Silica to absorb excess oils and reduce shine on the skin's surface.

(129 powder/ blush brush)
