I received the Make Up For Ever New Matte Velvet Skin foundation to try out and I’m here to share my thoughts with you. It’s a full coverage 24hr foundation and comes in 40 shades. It is light weight and oil-free. This foundation is not drying and moves with your face. It feels like I’m wearing nothing on my skin and I love it!
I will start with the Primer. I really love the primer. It is very hydrating. I feel that it helps a lot with the dry spots that I have around my nose, eyes, mouth and forehead. It also helps my foundation stay on longer. It is super soft, light, hydrating and silky.
As I wore the foundation through the day my skin got oily very little only a little around my T-Zone but a lot less than other foundations I’ve tried. I patted it down with my powder and was good to go. It lasted until I washed it off at night. The New Matte Velvet Skin Foundation applies nicely but I had to work in small areas at a time. The formula dries fast. It gives an incredible coverage and feels good on the skin.
The brush is a new way for me to apply foundation. I usually use my fingers or beauty blender. I really enjoyed applying it with the brush, it made the foundation nice and even on the face. It also helped cover delicate areas with more precision around the nose, mouth and eyes.
The brush is absolutely beautiful. Has a lovely weight to it. This is the first time that I’ve used a Make Up For Ever makeup brush and I love how soft it is. It is very nice and gentle on the skin.
Life-Like Full Coverage. Unique Flexi-fit complex makes this full coverage, lightweight & oil free foundation flexible, so it moves with your skin and never cakes, flakes, or fades. -Make Up For Ever
Makeup Artists Tips
For a long wearing lit-from-within glow, spray your artisan brush 108 with Mist & Fix, then place a small pearl size amount of matte velvet skin onto your cheeks, chin and forehead. Using artisan brush 108 fan out the product, way from the centre of the face to achieve a flawless look. -Makeup Artist Mathew Richard @mattmakeup
Makeup Artist Tips
To achieve a flawless velvety complexion, I use three shades of Matte Velvet Skin foundation to create dimension. First, I place light foundation colour on the high points of the face then I select a darker foundation for the points of the face I wish to contour. Finally I bridge the two foundation shades with the perfect complexion colour to achieve a beautifully, naturally sculpted face. – National Educator Dannica Lamoureux @dannicadots
To achieve a red carpet ready complexion add a drip of AIRBRUSH THINNER to your MATTE VELVE SKIN on a flat metal palette. Combine the two products, then apply them to the skin by using a fanning motion from the centre of the face outwards. The result is seamless and long wearing. -Pro Business Development Manager Emily Lajoie Bourassa @lajoiemua
Just one application and I am so happy with the coverage! The foundation feels very light and airy on my skin and covers perfectly. If you want a comfortable foundation that keeps your complexion matte and that lasts all day try Make Up For Ever New Matte Velvet Skin. It feels natural and the formula allows the skin to breath and move. I highly recommend this foundation, primer and brush. I love that they have over 40 shades. The foundation keeps shine under control and my skin looks and feels healthy at the same time. Thank you so much to Make Up For Ever for the incredible PR samples. I’m so grateful. Thank you so much!
