A Make-Up Artist’s Secret To Flawless Foundation

A Make-Up Artist’s Secret To Flawless Foundation

Clé de Peau Beauté’s new Fluid Foundation bridges the gap between a sheer base and long-wear coverage. With a silky finish that’s been dubbed a ‘second skin’, and a formula which is resistant to both humidity and daily pollution, it’s easy to see why so many pro make-up artists are fans. Plus, it’s not only the foundation worth having on your radar – the rest of the products in their cult complexion range are just as impressive. Here, make-up maestro Hannah Martin explains how to achieve smooth, flawless skin every day.

Once a well-kept secret among industry insiders and A-listers, Clé de Peau Beauté is fast becoming a household name.
Their extensive range encompasses beautifully packaged skincare, creamy blushers and smooth lipsticks – but it’s their cult complexion products which are causing a stir. 
Brimming with active botanicals and backed by science, their concealer and foundation formulas do so much more than just provide a filter-like finish. Advanced technology means your skin is treated and nourished at the same time, with their in-built Skin-Empowering Illuminator working hard to boost your skin’s defences, while protecting against the effects of daily aggressors, too – think pollution, stress and UV damage. 
To demonstrate the silky results, we teamed up with make-up artist Hannah Martin to show you how to use each product properly.

Radiant Fluid Foundation Matte, £110

A soft matte, this foundation is a must-try for anyone seeking fuller coverage. It has unbeatable luminosity thanks to the brand’s in-built ‘light-empowering enhancer’ technology that controls shine and amps up radiance. But its skincare benefits are just as impressive – not only does it deliver plenty of moisture and hydration with nourishing ingredients, the non-comedogenic formula doesn’t block your pores, either. Plus, it’s now available in 31 shades, so there’s something to suit everyone.

Correcting Cream Veil, £55

If you’re after more of a tinted cream, this is it. Bridging the gap between a primer and moisturiser, it works to improve your skin (think soothing redness and uneven tone), while also maximising the longevity of any foundation applied on top. A small amount massaged into the skin will protect your skin from damaging, daily aggressors, while giving your complexion a healthy, dewy radiance, too.

Concealer SPF25, £54

This iconic concealer is without doubt one of the brand’s best products. Loved by celebrities like Chrissy Teigen, January Jones and Kate Hudson, it’s full-coverage, but the creamy formula still provides a skin-like finish. It's also full of antioxidants and SPF, too.

High Coverage Foundation Brush, £60

With dense fibres, Clé de Peau Beauté’s Foundation Brush latches onto just the right amount of product to create a seamless blend. The angled head is a huge bonus, too, as it allows you to move around the contours of your face with ease. One of the softest brushes we’ve ever tried, there’s no friction or tugging as you move it. We regularly spy this one in pro make-up artist’s kits.

Light Coverage Foundation Brush, £60

Designed for building up sheer to medium coverage, this foundation brush works well with cream and liquid formulas for a fresher finish. You can intensify your application with this, building up slowly in thin, even layers, thanks to its unique flat head design.

Available here

Concealer Brush, £30

A good concealer brush makes all the difference. Cue Clé de Peau Beauté’s which has densely packed bristles for smooth and even application. Made from soft, fine synthetic fibres, it’s gentle enough to be used on all the delicate areas of the skin – specifically your eye area – without causing any irritation. The flat head is ideal for pressing products directly into the skin for a flake and crease-free finish.
