1) Activate: To awaken the complexion, pat the 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 Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil as a primer. Apply two to three drops of the oil to the face and neck. The skin appears instantly smoother, plumper and revitalised.
3) Unify: Apply the foundation directly to the L’Essentiel brush, depending on the desired level of coverage: one drop for light coverage, two to three drops for medium coverage.
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) Enhance: Add a finishing touch to the face make-up with Météorites Compact for a shine-control effect followed by Terracotta Light for a sun-kissed healthy-looking glow.
