Step 1. Moisturise your skin (even those using Matte Veil – you need to keep your skin hydrated) with a daily moisturiser and let it set.

Step 2. Apply a pea sized amount onto the back of your hand using the hygiene friendly spatula provided.

Step 3. Apply with a foundation brush (or whichever brush you prefer!) and work around the whole of the face. Let this set for a minute, it may begin to feel a little sticky.

Step 4. Apply Skin Base Foundation as you would normally (You can use with other foundations, though be sure the foundation is also suited to your skin type).

Step 5. Continue as usual with your makeup. The veils will help keep your makeup on smoothly and will keep the skin hydrated beneath your makeup. Goodbye shiny and dry patches!

1. Keep your pot in the fridge! This will give you a cooling and refreshing morning routine.

2. Do not use too much – a pea-sized amount is perfect, you do not need much and you do not want to waste any.

3. Hydra Veil is great for hangover skin because of its re-hydrating qualities.

4. Hydra Veil and Matte Veil can be worn without makeup on top. They are also great for male grooming.

5. You can apply Hydra Veil to dry parts of the skin and Matte to a more oily area, so can be worn together.

6. Create beautiful dewy skin by mixing Skin Base Foundation and Hydra Veil then applying to the skin.
