Sheer Makeup Application with HD Foundation Cremes


Sheer Application

HD cremes can provide a beautiful, natural-looking sheer finish to your skin while still offering various benefits. HD (High Definition) cremes are designed to provide flawless coverage, smooth texture, and a radiant look, making them perfect for a no-makeup makeup or light makeup look. Here are some benefits and ways to wear HD creams for a sheer finish:

Prep Work

Cleanse and moisturize: Before applying makeup, cleanse your face to remove any dirt or oil, then apply a light moisturizer suitable for your skin type. Let the moisturizer absorb fully before proceeding.

  • 1) Using your spatula, scoop a pea-sized amount out of the shade(s) that match the skin tones of you or your client. The makeup artist here color matched the shade to her client's chest.

  • 2) Spread the foundation onto your mixing palette. Because the formula is so pigmented, it's best to work from a mixing palette, rather than directly from the makeup palette, which would result in a heavy application.

  • 3) Using a duo fiber brush, apply the foundation in sheer layers.

  • 4) You can use the same brush and the same palette to apply the base layer, the highlight, and the contour.

  • 5) Lightly apply your cream blush shade.

  • 6) To bring everything together, finish off with Graftobian's HD ProPowders.

  • 7) You can go as sheer or as heavy as you'd like; they're super buildable! They're long-lasting and easy to use on all skin tones and types.

  • 10) The key to achieving a sheer finish with HD creams is to use a light hand and focus on enhancing your natural beauty.
