Multitasking Foundation Sticks: Playing with shades for infinite looks
No single makeup product, can do it all. But multifunctional products – like shaping or foundation sticks – are a step closer!
4 Ways You Can Use Multitasking base sticks like L’Oreal Paris Infallible Longwear Shaping Sticks can be used in a variety of ways. From contouring to full-face foundation, these grab-and-go sticks are super versatile. They have a light to medium weight, but a good coverage and a creamy texture which makes them very easy to blend.
Foundation To use L’Oreal Paris Infallible Longwear Shaping Stick as a foundation, simply apply the stick in a large swipe across your forehead, chin and each cheek, and blend with a makeup sponge. This is a super easy, quick way to get a great base, and can be built up for any level of coverage you want.
Concealer L’Oreal Paris Infallible Longwear Shaping Sticks are created with a unique cream-to-liquid formula that glides on smoothly. If you need to build coverage, don’t worry – it’s super buildable, and it comes in 12 different shades to match your skin tone.
To apply as a concealer, simply run the stick under your eyes where skin is prone to darkness. Then, use the pad of your fingertips or a concealer brush to blend, concealing blemishes as you wish. For any spots you might want to conceal, simply dab on the area needing coverage and blend.
Choose a shade that’s slightly lighter than your skin tone. Once you’ve applied your foundation, add your lighter highlight shade above the eyebrows, along the bridge of the nose, and just above your cheekbones – in the places that light would naturally first land on your face.
Contour To create more accentuated definition, use one stick two shades lighter and one two shades darker than your skin colour to contour. Apply the darker shade in lines along the hairline, across the underside of your cheekbones and lightly on either side of your nose.
With the product in place, begin to blend from your nose outward using a beauty blender. Focus the lighter stick under your eyes. For a more extreme look you can add a bit to the bridge of the nose and chin. The aim is to seamlessly fuse the two shades together for subtle definition – but feel free to experiment if you want a stronger look.
