氣墊專用刷 業界首創 微霧VS.水亮一餅完成!

終結氣墊粉餅只能提供單一「水亮」或是「霧面」妝感的既定印象,只要擁有一顆亮白C美白氣墊粉餅SPF50/PA++++,搭配上M·A·C專門為氣墊設計的氣墊專用刷#197SH,就能輕鬆打造「柔和微霧」跟「韓妞水亮」2種截然不同的底妝風格!

2、雙重毛質設計:M·A·C設計團隊專門為了氣墊粉餅的特殊質地,選取了黑色超柔軟山羊毛,混合白色合成纖維,以山羊毛易沾取產品以及合成纖維有彈力能幫助產品均勻延展而不會吸走粉底水感的雙重特性,完美展現氣墊粉餅的獨特妝效。

ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液

MAKE UP FOR EVER全球專櫃品牌第一瓶 專為4K鏡頭設計 ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液!

鴻海董事長郭台銘於今年6月的股東大會上,表示將持續經營後勢看漲的4K面板市場,期許在三年內成為世界第一;同時間,日本3C領導品牌Sony積極搶市,一口氣推出七款4K電視顯示器,其銷售子公司Sony Marketing社長河野弘表示,2015年日本有意購買46吋以上大尺寸電視的消費者中,預估一半比重將購買4K機種。美國市場研究機構Display Search指出,2012年4K電視市場規模僅7,518萬美元,2015年有望暴增414倍來到311億美元的市場規模。

法國專業彩妝品牌MAKE UP FOR EVER看準後勢看漲的4K面板市場商機,感知底妝需求不斷進化,2015年創全球專櫃品牌第一瓶,專為4K鏡頭設計的【ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液】,預告將超越2008年推出的熱銷經典HD無瑕粉底液,給予全新輕薄無負擔妝感卻能滿足鏡頭下嚴格檢視的完美妝效。全新ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液添加三大創新科技成分:『超有氧紅潤精華』、『玻尿酸時光膠囊』、『最輕透柔焦分子』,一瓶即可打造超輕透、超紅潤、超保濕的活氧美肌,輕鬆為你的肌膚打氣!

創新添加吳茱萸果萃取,為肌膚加氧打氣 24小時玻尿酸長效釋放,妝容持久美麗 
MAKE UP FOR EVER ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液具備三大秘密武器,讓這2015年度重量級底妝新品,擁有【活氧粉底液】的暱稱!
秘密武器一:【活氧粉底液】的創新成分『超有氧紅潤精華』中,首次添加「吳茱萸果萃取( Evodia Ruteacarpa Fruit Extract)」,《本草綱目》記載,吳茱萸果氣味辛辣芳香,性溫熱,有治寒驅毒固虛之用。其具抗敏及修護性,可促進皮膚表層血液循環及新陳代謝,並完成兩大作用:1.提升肌膚含氧量及養份吸收;2.改善膚色,對抗暗沉。使其躍為三大祕密武器之首,讓你立即擁有紅潤光澤,透過活氧循環,秘密地為肌膚打氣!
秘密武器二:
以超進化科技製造出『玻尿酸時光膠囊』,能隨著時間漸漸釋放玻尿酸給肌膚,作用長達24小時,能有效減少乾燥肌膚因為妝容過重所產生的細紋與皺紋,維持肌膚高度保濕狀態,讓妝容平滑緊緻、持久服貼。
秘密武器三:
均勻散布於粉底液中的『最輕透柔焦分子』,能製造光線折射效果、輕鬆隱形瑕疵,讓底妝更臻完美;同時,突破性減少粉末的使用,讓底妝不再有厚重的粉感,保有遮瑕效果、卻依舊清透光亮。

獨創冷暖色分析 與 推!彈!壓!活氧底妝術  
一般消費者靠櫃購買底妝商品,大多由彩妝師進行現場試色,找出最接近臉頰與頸部膚色的中間色來進行推薦。但現場膚色狀況仍會受到當時膚溫、日曬、自身生理狀況等影響,使得結果難免偏頗。MAKE UP FOR EVER領先業界獨創冷暖色分析,藉由前期客觀數據與觀察,在粉底液選色上能更貼近個人膚色偏好,打造專屬的活氧美肌。透過以下幾點問答判斷後,再行細分肌膚適用色號。

content____-1

透過冷暖色分析,選定色號適宜的粉底液後,便可透過 活氧底妝術--一推、二彈、三壓 來輕鬆完成超輕透遮瑕、超紅潤有氧、超長效保濕的完美底妝。

熱帶型氣候轉變 黏膩底妝OUT!清爽薄透的活氧底妝IN!
幾檔韓劇熱賣,不僅捧紅戲中人物,也衝高周邊商品詢問度,尤其韓系底妝更趁勢大舉壓境,無論出國採買或品牌代理來台,銷售數字都能異軍突起、屢創新高。然而,台灣與韓國地理位置、緯度高低之差異,造成兩地氣候極大的不同;再者,台灣因暖化現象也逐漸從亞熱帶氣候轉為熱帶型氣候,可預見未來如韓國等溫帶型氣候國家適用的底妝商品,對國內消費者來說,都將過於黏膩且持妝不易。大環境的悶熱濕黏考驗,在底妝使用時應更無負擔!ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液,透過最輕透柔焦分子,使妝效輕薄舒適打造完美氣色,更能在嚴苛的4K鏡頭下展現超有氧紅潤且精緻細膩的服貼妝容。

情人美麗進化 完美妝效的極致延伸,玩色高手的秘密武器
時序轉至立秋,季節交替之際,多使肌膚狀況不穩定,時而乾燥起屑、時而悶熱紅癢,容易造成膚色不均、細紋佈滿的窘境,上妝更是不易。ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液獨有的超有氧紅潤精華能幫助血液循環,提升肌膚含氧量,強化養分輸送以增加紅潤好氣色,打造底妝的一致性,使得後續彩妝玩色更加上手,色澤立體飽和,讓美麗瞬間進化。
即將到來的七夕情人節,ULTRA HD超進化無瑕粉底液替你向心儀男神傳遞愛意,透過底妝開始活絡兩人之間無負擔的正向循環,實現紅潤光澤輝映在零距離的亮膚美肌上;使愛情負能量隨著肌膚加速的代謝在每次情感的催化升溫後!

True makeup artists know the importance of building from the ground up. Set the stage for your full-face makeup routine with these 10 makeup tips on how to apply foundation for a blemish-free, youthful complexion. Maxime Poulin, International Makeup Artist for Guerlain, and Leslie Ann Iddison, Regional Trainer for Clarins Canada reveal their 10 most important foundation makeup tips to follow for flawless, radiant skin coverage this summer.

·

1. Prim and Prime the Skin
Before you apply foundation, begin with a primer as a base coat to prep your face for dewy, radiant skin. “It smoothes the skin texture, helps your foundation to last longer, the colour to stay true, the application to be more even and makes your skin appear more luminescent,” says Poulin. “It really helps binding the liquid makeup to your skin for a long lasting, flawless finish and it makes you look more natural.”
·
2. Foundations with Benefits
There’s no reason why foundation should be just another cosmetic you use without a bonus. “Most of us wear foundation throughout the entire day so this product should offer your skin more than just makeup. Think about using a foundation that boosts hydration or has a built-in SPF,” says Iddison.
·
3. Be in Tune with Nature

We’re Canadian girls—meaning we have to adjust our foundation to ready our skin for the rotating seasons. Lighten your foundation during the summer months and add a little more product (plus a moisturizer) for winter. “The skin is exposed to all kinds of weather, and what looks and feels good in -30 will not be appropriate in the midst of summer when it gets hot and sticky,” says Poulin.
·
4. Don’t Go to Bed Angry—or with Your Foundation
This may seem like a no brainer, but we all need a little reminder about one of the most important makeup tips—the necessity of removing makeup at night for healthy, radiant skin. “Don’t go to bed with your foundation on, no matter how tired you are,” says Iddison. “Always be sure to use a high quality cleansing product to remove all traces of foundation at the end of the day.”

·

5. Be a Foundation Hoarder
Collect different foundations for your makeup arsenal to suit your daily activities and to maintain a natural skin tone. “Foundations aren’t one-size-fits-all. Have different foundations for different purposes, such as a long-wearing product for the work week, a light-weight product for casual days or a full-coverage product for when you want your skin to look completely flawless,” says Iddison.

·

6. Go on a Shopping Spree
Purchasing a low-end nail polish or lip colour is one thing, but finding the best foundation for radiant skin is a different story. “The foundation is the one item you should always splurge on. It is the one that covers your entire face so you should always go for the best formula out there for your skin,” says Poulin.
·
7. Give It a Test Drive
We all do it—secretly wipe a swatch of the newest foundation on our arm at the drugstore. “Always try to get the best colour match possible. Make sure that you test the colour on your jawline—not your wrist—before you purchase the product,” says Iddison. This will give you an accurate reading of the best shade for your skin type.

·

8. It’s All About the Colour
When testing a new foundation, make sure the product is just a bit lighter than your skin tone. “Nothing is more ageing than a foundation which is darker than your complexion. When you choose a dark foundation it removes the glow from your skin and makes you look older, erases the features and makes you look flat,” says Poulin.

·
9. A Layer or Two Will Do
To guarantee pretty, matte skin, avoid piling on the layers and making it obvious you’ve applied foundation. “This will make it look like you’re wearing a mask. There are many high quality foundations on the market that are light-weight yet provide great coverage,” says Iddison.

·

10. Be Ready for Your Close-up All Day Long
Be sure to bring a compact to reapply foundation when you’re on the go to keep your complexion fresh and polished. “No matter how long lasting, nobody stays fabulous all day long without a minimal oh-so-elegant touch up at lunch time and after work before the happy hour,” says Poulin.

There you have it—10 rules to help you apply foundation better and to set you on your way to immaculate, radiant skin this summer.
