Create a Sheer Foundation

The Sensual Skin Enhancer can be mixed with moisturizer to customize coverage depending on your needs. We’ll start with a sheer, lightweight base to even out the skin and blur any major texture or tone issues.

You will need:

  • The Sensual Skin Enhancer
  • Creamy moisturizer (like Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré)
  • Mixing palette (like Paw Palettes)
  • Foundation Brush (like Wayne Goss Brush 01)

 

Step 2: Create Sheer Coverage

Measure out half of a pea-sized amount of The Sensual Skin Enhancer and a pea-sized amount of a creamy moisturizer, such as Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. Mix the two on a palette or another clean surface to create a sheer-coverage base. For more coverage, you can increase the amount of The Sensual Skin Enhancer, but we recommend starting with this 1:2 ratio.

Add Extra Coverage to Problem Areas

You can add extra coverage to problem areas, like patches of hyperpigmentation, birthmarks, or dark circles under the eyes, by creating a full-coverage foundation with The Sensual Skin Enhancer.

You will need:

  • The Sensual Skin Enhancer
  • Creamy moisturizer (like Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré)
  • Fine-tipped brush (we used Wayne Goss Brush 05)
  • beautyblender
