When I started as a Makeup Artist one of my main concerns was finding the right products for a flawless application. As I started learning more about makeup, I realized that in order to have a flawless application I needed to prep the skin using a great moisturizer; I started investigating and asking other professional MUAs and the product I got recommended the most was Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre.
It was love at first sight, or better, at first application! I can't say enough about it. This moisturizer is so versatile, I love the many ways I can use this product. I've used it to prep the skin, to moisturize the under eye area, to make foundations less thicker, to remove makeup, to correct makeup application, etc. It is also great for all skin types, including oily skin. You just have to make sure when you have a client with combination to oily skin, that you don't apply as much product as you will with someone that has dry to normal skin.
This is one of those products I really recommend to have in your kit, it will save you from having lots of other primers or moisturizers to prep the skin that sometimes don’t really work or don't have a good quality. If you are a beginner artist then this is going to be your BFF when it comes to skin care and it will be very helpful to have it as part of your routine because of the many uses you can give it, as I mentioned before. I love to have products in my kit that I can use not only for one task but for many, it makes me save money and time on the makeup application.
Some tips I can give you when using this product, I have learned from other artists and some I've tested myself, these are:
If you are working with someone that has very dry skin, you can apply a thick layer of Embryolisse to the face and leave it for 2 or 3 min to act like a skin mask. It will give some extra moisture to the face.
When you have a client that has had a very bad sun burn and the skin is kind of wrinkly, what I do is spray some rose water to the face, and while the skin is still wet I apply some Embryolisse; that helps the skin suck some water, get plump, fresh and ready for makeup.
For a sheer coverage foundation finish, you can mix a dime amount of Embryolisse with the foundation you will be using; that will apply very lightly and sheer, making the skin look very natural.
For the under eye area, I apply a little bit of the Embryolisse to provide some moisture and help the concealer not to crease much; specially on mature skin, this trick works wonders.
For combination skin, just make sure to apply a small amount on the T-zone and just focus on the cheek area for more moisture.
- For waterproof makeup removal, just add a little bit of Embryolisse to a makeup wipe for an extra help. Waterproof makeup is not fun to remove, but this trick will make it easier to do.
Well, I hope this information was helpful, and you've learned something new that you can put into practice next time!
See you soon!!
