Elena Krygina, Alexandra Kirienko, Ernest Muntaniol and other leading makeup artists told BeautyHack about their favorite tonal products.
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation
Foundation with dispenser, in a glass bottle. Most importantly, it has a balance: it sits right in the middle in the Bobbi Brown line, from the thickest sticks to the lightest balms.
You won't feel the cream on your face - very comfortable, but it gives good coverage. It keeps well and does not dry out the skin during the day. By the way, I even put it under my eyes - instead of concealer.
Tip: If you like to use both tone and concealer, it is better to choose products from the same brand. It often happens that two products are good on their own, but do not rhyme together, they leave a noticeable border, no matter how shaded.
Foundation Maybelline New York Affinitone
Ideal foundation - blends in with the skin (I apply with my fingers), dense enough to mask imperfections in a quality manner, shades well, inexpensive. I use shade # 3 - this is the "golden mean". Refreshes the complexion, not too dark, but not too light.
Foundation Double Wear Light, Estee Lauder
I recommend this product to clients with combination and oily skin. Mattifies, hides imperfections and gives a slight lifting effect. Light in texture - I wear it in the summer.
But for dry skin it is not suitable: it can emphasize peeling. Very durable - lasts up to 15 hours.
Foundation Lasting Silk and Luminous Silk, Giorgio Armani
And these are the best remedies for winter and dry skin. Luminous Silk has a fatter texture than Lasting Silk. I mix them a lot. Perfectly evens out the tone, does not clog in the pores and does not dry out, hide mimic wrinkles.
Foundation Double Wear, Estée Lauder
Estée Lauder's most popular foundation is the classic Double Wear in a glass bottle. It is very durable, covers any imperfections and does not damage the skin. Now Double Wear has 12 shades, we selected them specifically for the Russian market.
Girls in our country pick up their shade for a long time: one seems too pink, the other turns yellow. I specially made sure that Double Wear solves this problem - I can easily find the “same” shade for each model. Most often I use Pure Beige, our "popular" Ecru tone and gentle Ivory Nude. Apply Double Wear in different ways: for a thin, natural layer, use a moist beauty blender, if you want to "cover" the skin's relief - apply Double Wear in a thicker layer - with your favorite tone brush.
Cushion Double Wear, Estée Lauder
The lightest of all Estée Lauder foundations. Gives a healthy glow to any skin. Fashion is moving towards a natural effect: on the world's catwalks, models come out with gym skin (skin "like after a workout" - ed.) And "shine" from the inside. Do not think that the cushion is suitable only for girls with even skin - Double Wear copes with any problem, even with redness. I love this cushion for its delicate finish - you glow as if you slept well. The applicator is very comfortable - I use the cushion without looking in the mirror.
Foundation with lifting effect Perfectionist, Estée Lauder
A helper for aging skin. The Perfectionist really fills in wrinkles with their texture and reduces their appearance. Mimic wrinkles are completely invisible, and deep ones are smoothed out well. The glowing pigments in the foundation scatter light and make the face look healthy. For young girls, this foundation will help to hide flaking - the Perfectionist "sticks" flaky particles to the skin. The finish is velvety, as in the photographs of Hollywood stars before the Oscar.
Foundation Liquid Lift Foundation, Make Up For Ever
I love the perfect coverage - the medium hiding power of this tone allows you to hide imperfections and give a satin shine. I apply the Lift Foundation with a fluffy blush brush (Make Up For Ever, 156): I brush it all over the face in light circular motions. A thin veil is formed. The thinnest layer is all due to the creamy texture. In the morning, the Lift Foundation works like a breakfast for the skin - it helps it to invigorate and prepare for the long day. Do not forget: the foundation works only in combination with the right care for your skin type: dry areas should be well moisturized, oily areas should be matted.
Face & Body Foundation
The favorite cream of makeup artists behind the scenes of Fashion Weeks. Face & Body has a water base, which makes it easy to apply with your fingers. The coating is thin but durable and the texture is like a satin fabric. Face & Body should be known to every beautician - this foundation does not dry out the skin, lies flat, does not require adjustment during the day and is barely felt.
Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation
This foundation works for two: thanks to a dense and rich layer, it replaces concealer and completely covers imperfections. Water Resistant Formula - Pro Longwear keeps its natural and fresh look until you remove your makeup. Pro Longwear fights dry skin with moisturizing particles.
Foundation Vitalumiere Aqua, Chanel
The best way to refresh makeup is a well-chosen foundation - by updating it after a couple of hours, you will not get the effect of plaster on your face. This cream contains a lot of water. Gives a semi-matte, semi-luminous finish and blends well. Remember: the more water in the formula, the better for dry skin - the cream will not accentuate peeling. This is important for our region and climate.
Foundation Sublimage Le Teint, Chanel
Denser Vitalumiere Aqua. I love it because it works both as a care and as a toning cream. It contains active vanilla water, biosaccharide, phytosqualene and glycerin for moisturizing. Creates a "second skin" effect - the face after it shines and looks healthy. I like the texture - talcum powder is crushed so hard that the product is very mobile and mimic wrinkles are not clogged.
CC-cream Pink Perfect Creme Erborian
CC cream is perfect for my skin. I found in the Erborian line a remedy that correctly sets off the color of the skin. The product is slightly dry, does not shine at all, gives a matte finish, beautiful color and an almost invisible coating. True, I cannot recommend it to those who have dry skin - most likely it will not suit you.
Foundation, Face Atelier
This professional product is not easy to get hold of - it can be found in specialized makeup stores in America. Allows you to make even the most problematic skin flawless. The highly pigmented foundation is easy to apply, enveloping the skin and repeating the relief, softens and smoothes it, eliminates flaking. The palette has a very light shade for snow white. Perfect for creating a porcelain leather effect.
Foundation Studio Sculpt, MAC
The tone should be such that it would be good to hide problem areas, and at the same time give a natural effect. MAC Studio Sculpt with silicones copes with the task - it perfectly hides flaws, and is also practically invisible in the photo.
