Correct Application health & safety.

Are you applying your Supercover Ultimate HD Foundation Correctly?
1. Prepare the skin by cleansing, toning & moisturising if you have dry skin. Try our Ultimate HD Face Primer (found under the PRODUCTS tab) which is a perfect base primer for even make-up base application. The face primer is non greasy and helps to fill in lines, wrinkles and large pores. Great for oily skin and helps Foundation last for many many hours longer.

2. For hygiene reasons we would recommend the use of the Supercover Stainless Steel Spatula & Palette (found under the PRODUCTS tab). By using the Supercover stainless steel spatula & palette not only for good hygiene practice but also to prevent bacteria build up in containers.

3. Take the Supercover Hydrator Spray and spray 1-2 times on your clean make-up sponge or clean foundation brush and glide your sponge across the foundation and apply to your face and blend in to your skin. To cover any skin discolouration try patting or stippling the makeup sponge to the centre of the discoloured area with softer taps around the edges for a nice feathered and well blended finish. Always apply makeup in the direction of any fine facial hair growth, this will help to diminish the effects of fine facial hair. For best results, blend, blend and blend well.

4. To allow the make-up to last up to 14 hours depending on weather and humidity, set the foundation only with Supercover Ultra-lucent Fine HD Setting Powder using a Supercover professional size powder puff (found under Powders tab ). Do not use brush to set the Foundation. At this point the makeup is water resistant.

5. The canvas is now set after you have removed any excess powder with a Supercover Dome Brush (found under Brushes tab) ready to apply other make-up such as eye shadows, lipstick, blusher, etc.

ALL Supercover Ultimate HD Foundations are a water activated mineral to cream based foundation therefore it should never be applied with fingers.

How to conceal major skin discolouration: To cover major skin discolourations such as redness or ruddy skin use no.16 red neutraliser (found under correctors tab). To cover pigmentation or under eye shadows use no. 25 blue neutraliser (found under correctors tab). Apply one or both of these concealers/ correctors with a Supercover Flibert no.10 Brush (found under Brushes tab) then pat or stipple the foundation over the top of the concealers/correctors and blend, then set the make- up with powder. All concealers / correctors are also normal foundations for everyday use except for lavender veil, for further information on how to use the lavender veil and other colour correctives see the correctors tab and look at the Corrector wheel.

Please note: Many of our cream based products such as Supercover HD Foundations, Corrector, Fashion and Lipstick Wheels have the tendency to sweat or perspire leaving some soft round patches and or indentation hole marks on the surface. Please note this is perfectly normal and will not effect the durability or the performance of the make-up. Please store all cosmetics in a cool place away from direct heat and sunlight, close lids tightly after each use.

For People With Oily Skin / hot weather conditions. The performance and long lasting ability of the makeup Foundation will depend on many factors. Naturally the cooler the climate on good smooth skin the products lasts longer, on the other hand in hotter climatic conditions and people with oily skin the makeup does not last as long, therefore, here are some sound advise how to make your Foundation last longer under these conditions.

1) Apply the Supercover makeup foundation as explained above numbers 1-4. In addition tone your skin with a toner which also helps to remove excess oil from the skin.

2) Do not use a moisturiser on oily skin this will weaken the performance of the makeup. Use a face primer.

3) Upon completion of the makeup, set the Foundation only with Supercover fine Ultra-lucent powder as this is designed to set the makeup, always use powder puff to set the powder to the Foundation on the face ( never a powder brush ).

4) Rather than removing the excess powder from the face, now use Supercover Dome brush and work the excess powder further back into the skin with soft round brush strokes. This is for the addition of the powder and this will make your Foundation last longer. ( Do not spray your face with the Hydrator spray )
Your natural oils will come thru the makeup in these hotter climatic conditions for the dewy glow to the skin.

5) The powder puff packaging comes in a resealable clear plastic cover, When you have used the powder puff with the powder, put some extra powder on the powder puff and wrap with tissue then seal it back in the clear plastic and keep it with you for touch up during the day.

6) Touch up, keep some tissue or paper towel with you and gently blot perspiration/oils from the skin first before re-setting and retouching the powder to the face with powder puff.

We hope that these sound information will help you.
