How to apply Cream to Powder Foundation Makeup

Cream-to-Powder Foundation Makeup is the best choice for any skin type because it allows for full coverage with a creamy, flawless and light weight finish that transitions between day wear and night wear without hesitation.  It is the number one choice of Makeup Artists because  Cream-to-Powder Makeup is also the most forgiving and easy to work with.  Cream-to-Powder is the most popular choice among makeup enthusiasts and professionals alike.

How do you apply Cream-to-Powder Foundation Make-up?

apply blushBrush – Applying with a brush is going to give you light, opaque coverage which is perfect for helping to even out skin tone and giving your skin a flawless finish.  Be sure to apply with long, light strokes to avoid any streaking with your brush. These are currently a hot brand that works well with Biofond Foundation.

square spongeSponge – This popular technique will give you more coverage if you are trying to conceal skin imperfections or for additional blending.  Using a lightly dampened sponge (with water or Hydro Pearls Primer) will give you more coverage than a brush but less than a dry sponge.  This is our recommended method and each Bio-Fond Foundation compact comes with a hypo-allergenic, non-latex sponge. Using a sponge is also ideal for buildable coverage.

fingertipsWith your Fingertips – Another way to apply Bio-Fond Foundation is with your fingertips. Please make sure your hands are thoroughly clean prior to application, to avoid contamination.  Your fingertips will give you the most coverage but also is also great for blending, since the foundation will soften into your skin from the warmth.

No matter which method you prefer, Cream-to-Powder foundation makeup is forgiving and easy to use!  With the included moisture base and sun protection, Biofond is ideal for every skin type from dry to oily.

Bridal Makeup Tutorial

I had a client a little bit ago that doesn’t ever wear makeup. How would it be? Her skin was flawless, eyes were beautiful and she has naturally pink lips. However, for her wedding, she wanted to accentuate her already flawless look. She was super concerned with contouring because she thought it would make her look too done up. I assured her that I would make her look beautiful, yet natural. DSC_0008

Step 1: I started with a light contour. I used Gerda Spillmann Bronze Special Bio Fond Foundation. I love the natural bronze that it gives. I shaded under her cheekbones and just a little under her bottom lip. 

Tip: Pay attention to where the light naturally highlights your features and what is naturally shaded. 

Step 2: I highlighted under her eyes (in a v-shape), bridge of her nose, a triangle on the forehead (just above the nose), the tip of her nose and her chin. I used Gerda Spillmann HighlighterDSC_0012 Bio Fond Foundation. 

Step 3: I blended all the contouring together with a beauty blender and her color of foundation. I used Gerda Spillmann Bio Fond Foundation in Top Chic (she has a very natural, beautiful tan. Top Chic matched perfect).

Step 4: I used the Chubby Eye Pencil in blizzard from Crown Brush just on top of her lid. This will help keep your eyes appearing bright and open (great technique for those late nights when you really are tired, or for any other time really). I also used it as a highlighter under the arch of her eyebrows.DSC_0019

Step 5: I used the 28 Color Neutral Eye Palette from Crown Brush. I deepened her crease with a neutral brown color and I used the “Round Tapered Crease” brush and then the “Pro Blender Crease” brush to sweep the color up and out a little bit.

Step 6: Using the same color palette, I lined her eyes with black using the “Silicone Angle Liner.” Using powder gives you a DSC_0027softer look than a pencil, gel or liquid liner.

Step 7: Darken your eyebrows. For a natural look, I used “Dark Blonde” Eyebrow Mousse from Blinc.

Step 8: False Lashes. I know you think that these are not natural, but you can actually find some really natural looking ones. They will open your eyes and make DSC_0028them stand out even more. When you place the glue onto the lashes, allow it to become tacky to the touch before applying. This will make them easier to place

Step 9: Mascara to blend in your real lashes to the falsies.

Step 10: DSC_0032Blush! Apply to the apples of your cheeks. When you are looking straight into the mirror, the blush application should not go past your pupils towards your nose. Then sweep it up to your hairline. I really don’t have a reason for why blush is one of my last steps. It just happens.  

Step 11. I love a good lip stain on a bride. She can kiss and not leave any marks on her new husband and not worry about having to reapply. I wanted a soft pink look, so I used “Infinite Rose” from the Sephora Collection. DSC_0039

Celebrity Makeup Artist Karla Muenze shares beauty tips

My name is Karla Muenze. I am a professional makeup artist working in TV and film. This summer I had the privilege to Department Head a feature film by the name of Comancheria, starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Jeff Bridges and Gill Rodriguez.

Filming took place in several different locations throughout the state of New Mexico. Summer in New Mexico is hot, windy and dry, but of course beautiful. Makeup under these conditions would prove to be a challenge.

Karla Muenze Biofond Palette

As a professional working under these conditions I found that Gerda Spillman’s Bio-fond would be a staple in my kit throughout the shoot. The Bio-fond provides great long wearing coverage that looks excellent on camera. Many of the actors had sensitive skin due to the weather conditions. I was able to use the Bio-fond everyday without causing any irritation to the skin. I love that the Biofond is available for you to custom choose the colors you want, and put them in a convenient palette.

My favorite way to apply the Bio-fond is with a damp beauty blender. The Bio-blush is beautiful as well and works hand and hand with the foundation. like using a duo fiber brush to gently buff it into the skin. In my custom pallet I also have the perfect highlight color for the eyes. It gives a perfect natural lift to the eyes.
