1) Activate: To awaken the complexion, pat skin with the L'Essentiel brush before applying make-up. Start at the inner corner of the eye, go to the ear, and then down towards the chin.
2) Prepare: Use L'Essentiel Pore Minimizer Shine-Control Primer to mattify and even out your complexion. Place two drops on your fingertips and gently warm up the formula between your fingers. Apply to your face and massage lightly into skin, starting at the centre of your face and working outwards. Perform the "Piano Touch" technique to awaken and energise skin – by gently tapping with your fingertips across the face.
3) Unify: Apply the foundation directly to the L’Essentiel brush. Then dab the foundation onto the face at five points: forehead, nose, chin, left and right cheeks. Pat and blend the foundation from the centre of the face outwards until the result is even.
4) Sculpt: Add a finishing touch to face make-up with bronzer to warm up and sculpt the complexion for a shine-free effect.
