Complexion - Perfecting Makeup Combines Plant Power and Advanced Skin Science
A perfect-looking complexion isn’t nearly as complicated as it sounds. Clarins demystifies flawlessly smooth skin with makeup products that use pioneering plant-science in their formulas so all that’s left for you to do is show off your gorgeous skin—as simple as 1, 2, 3!
1. Skin-smoothing makeup primer
A makeup face primer prepares the skin for foundation by helping to smooth away the appearance of fine lines, spots, and pores.
Clarins recommends Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch—our best primer for dry skin. Ultra-light in texture to glide on the skin, this award-winning product not only leaves the skin’s surface looking flawless—Acacia micro-pearls visibly smooth while Vitamin E hydrates and nourishes, so your skin feels comfortable and foundation-ready in seconds!
If you battle oil slicks and makeup slides, opt for Instant Poreless—this emulsion-gel makeup primer defies shine while boosting skin’s moisture level. Mattifying organic Strawberry Tree fruit extract helps blur the appearance of pores and imperfections. The lightweight, oil-absorbing texture of our best primer for oily skin, can be used before and after foundation application to keep makeup fresh and flawless. Another great option is oil-free SOS Primer that offers seven color-correcting fixes for any beauty concern.
2. Perfecting skincare foundations and concealers
Clarins’ best foundations and concealers include plant-science skincare in each product for a flawless complexion that feels comfortable all day.
Skin Illusion Foundation is a great example. This serum foundation combines the fluidity of pure plant oils with the perfect amount of pigments for breathable, luminous wear. One of our best foundation innovations to date—you get to choose the perfect level of coverage to conceal imperfections and visibly even your complexion for a smooth, bare skin feel.
For an example of all you can achieve with our best under eye concealers – look no further than Instant Concealer. Imperfections are concealed, shadowy areas brightened, and signs of fatigue diminished—all while visibly plumping and smoothing the skin’s appearance in the under-eye area! In addition, it’s enriched with hydrating Aloe Vera which promotes crease-free coverage.
Need to tone down shine and even your complexion? Ever Matte Radiant Matifying Powder can be applied to bare skin or over foundation to mattify shiny-looking skin and reveal a visibly healthy and natural glow, using Tanaka powder and pure mineral ingredients.
Whether you prefer a powder, cream or liquid foundation, Clarins recommends using the best foundation brush for the job. If you want full coverage, try the Flat Foundation Brush with super-soft bristles and a rounded tip to help you achieve a smooth, even base. Or try the Multi-use Foundation Brush with fanned bristles that create a subtle, nude look without caking.
3. Blush, contour and glow
For an all-round powerhouse of color, Clarins’ iconic Joli Blush can be used to brighten eyes, create contours, or fake the flush of radiant-looking skin after a sleepless night—it’s also pH-reactant and enriched with plant oil extracts for buildable color and comforted skin.
My Clarins LITTLE BLUSH creamy stick blush is a vegan cream blush stick that delivers a dewy glow and a fresh, comfortable finish. While Glow 2 Go 2-in-1 blush and highlighter stick gives you two pearlescent colors to illuminate your face and body, bringing a multidimensional glow to all skin tones.
Now that you’ve achieved complexion perfection—you’ll want to get every last second of wear out of your makeup. Fix' Make-Up is a light and refreshing setting spray enriched with Aloe Vera and Allantoin to visibly moisturize and soothe skin while your makeup stays put.
