How can we achieve the Fenty Face? Can you walk us through it?
Yes! It’s super achievable. Let’s do it step by step.
1. Create a smooth matt base with Pro Filt’r Primer
Fenty Beauty has three options for primers, each designed for a certain skin type: Instant Retouch is best for combination skin, Hydrating for dry and Mattifying for oily. These are lightweight and fast-absorbing primers that create a filter for foundation application. What makes them so special is that they absorb into the skin and feel just like a lotion.
2. Apply your Pro Filt’r Foundation and Concealer
This foundation comes in two finishes — Soft Matte and Hydrating — and both offer buildable, medium coverage, so your skin will always look natural and real, just more filtered. They’re also sweat-proof and humidity-resistant, making them ideal for Hong Kong weather. I like to apply this foundation with the Full-Bodied Foundation Brush 110 because it doesn’t leave any streaks, but you can also use a damp Precision Makeup Sponge 100 to mimic the skin’s texture.
I recommend applying the product in very thin layers, building as needed. Try to focus your application on areas that need more coverage. For example, I tend to put little to no foundation on my forehead, chin and the outer perimeters of my face, whereas on my cheeks, I use about two to three layers of foundation to cover redness. This creates a more natural look as well as the illusion that I’m wearing less!
3. Reach for your Match Stix Matte Skinstick
I can literally do an entire face with Match Stix because they’re so versatile, and they give your face so much dimension and contour. If these are the only products you have on hand, you can use them as a foundation, concealer, contour, eyeshadow, highlighter, lipstick… the options are endless! I recommend applying your Match Stix colour to the back of your hand to warm up the product, then using your fingers to apply it on your face.
