After cleansing your face thoroughly and applying your daily care, for example a serum or day cream, a foundation can be applied. A foundation forms the basis for all the make-up you want to apply and makes you face look smooth and even. Foundation is available in different forms, for example a cream, a powder, a mousse or a more liquid texture such as a fluid. In addition to your preference for a particular texture, you can also base the choice of foundation on your skin type. Many brands available at Optiphar have developed foundations specifically tailored to your skin's needs. Therefore, always make sure that you do not use a foundation for a dry skin for example if you have an oily skin with blemishes or acne. This also counts the other way around. An oily skin often benefits from a mattifying foundation that prevents the skin from looking too shiny.
After applying your foundation, you can apply a powder. This will help your make-up to stay in place longer and will also has a mattifying effect. If you are experiencing blemishes or red spots on your skin, you can also apply a concealer before putting on your the powder. To add more colour to your face, you can use a blush on your cheeks. Furthermore, you can create an intense look by using a mascara. This will add length and volume to your lashes. An eyebrow pencil will define the shape of your eyebrows. Complete your eye make-up with an eye shadow, eye pencil or eyeliner, available in different colours at Optiphar. To complete your look, you can apply a lipstick or lip gloss on the lips.
At Optiphar you can buy make-up from several premium brands such as Clarins, Clinique and T. LeClerc. Make-up from brands that specialise in sensitive skin or skin conditions is also available at Optiphar. Think off the mascaras developed by La Roche-Posay or Avène for those who have sensitive eyes and skin.
In the wide range of Optiphar you can also find natural make-up products, for example from the brand Cent Pur Cent. The make-up of this brand consists of 100% natural and pure minerals.
