Foundation Methods Hands On Workshop with Loli Romo at Poise Makeup Professional Los Angeles Studio

Sunday, June 25th, the Poise Makeup Professional Studio was filled with excitement from beginning artists, who did their very first makeup application, to Professional Artists for our FOUNDATION METHODS Hands On Workshop. We had Senior Artist and Global Educator, Loli Romo under our studio roof and we were thrilled to see what tricks and tips she would showcase during her demonstrations! Our Foundation Methods Workshop focused on how to utilize our HD Creme formula to color match, build coverage for corrective makeup and create different finishes.

Let's do a quick BREAKDOWN of Loli's techniques from Sunday's workshop:

COLOR MATCHING
  • Hold up your Pro Palette to choose a few shades. These shades will help you create your client's highlight, contour, and base shade. 
APPLICATION
  • Warm up the creme before application, either on your mixing palette or the back of your clean hands. This will break down the botanical ingredients in the creme to release the vitamins and ease blending.
  • Focus on the bone structure. The lighting will show you where the natural shadows and high points of the face are. If you can't see them, feel for them!
  • When applying the shade or "contour" to the cheekbones, imagine a line above the upper lip. Keep the contour above that "line" for a feminine shape. 
  • Use a dense, soft-bristled brush like #202 Pro Foundation Brush to apply and blend using circular motions. 
FINISH
  • HD Creme Foundation alone has a velvet-matte finish, but if you want to create a dewy finish: add a carrier oil or moisturizer. Her favorite is Hydra-Mat Emulsion from Embryolisse
  • She combines both the moisturizer and foundation together to create the desired look. With a higher amount of moisturizer, the coverage will become more sheer.
