Cream foundation is more versatile than you think!


 «»To get the best out of any foundation product, skin needs to be perfectly prepped. Always moisturize the skin with (optional: a brightening serum) moisturizer. Then lightly apply a layer of primer.«»


You can wear cream foundation as is for opaque, full coverage, or translucent.  Mix it with it with some primer to make it translucent. This is a foolproof way to retain the foundation’s coverage without looking caked on.  It helps the makeup blend seamlessly with the first layer of primer that you have already applied.

Japonesque Luminous Foundation


For dry or combination skin types, use your foundation brush and buff the foundation onto the skin, concentrating on the center of your face, which is typically where your skin has the most discoloration. The further you get from the center, the less coverage you want.

Dolce & Gabbana The Foundation Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation

Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation

For a natural, healthy-looking flush to the cheeks, I like to apply color directly to the apples of the cheeks with cream blush after the cream foundation has been applied and before powder is dusted over the skin.

When I want cheeks to look more defined and polished, I will sweep a powder blush along the cheekbones after the cream foundation has been set with powder.

For that ‘no-make up look’ where the skin looks radiant, apply cream blush sparingly to cheeks. Blend blush to a fresh finish. Cream foundation is then layered over blush.

You can use a liquid foundation, first, to create a smooth, even and radiant canvas and then blend a little amount of cream foundation on to the cheeks and forehead to give skin more coverage. Making your skin look super-polished and never cakey or heavily made up.
