ZAO Silk Foundation applies easily and meets the needs of those who like a dewy, luminous complexion with full coverage. Organic sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter give this foundation a deep moisturising effect that nourishes dry skin, as well as organic silica contained in bamboo hydrosol. This foundation has a semi-matt finish and uniform coverage to facilitate a long lasting coverage throughout the day.
Packaged in a squeezy tube, this product is ideal for popping into your handbag for touching up your makeup on the move, and also for travelling due to its light, compact format.
Instructions for use: Especially easy to apply thanks to its light texture, ZAO silk foundation is best used with a natural rubber sponge, sold separately. It is also very convenient to apply with fingers.
ZAO Beauty Tip: choose a colour that matches your skin tone without being too bright or too dark, to avoid the telltale 'tidemark' effect on the neck area. Find your skin tone and take into account whether you have warm, cool or neutral undertones to find your best colour. Please e-mail us if you need some help in selecting the best colour for you. Apply the foundation from the centre to the outside.

If you suit colours like gold, copper, bronze, orange-reds and earthy tones, then your skin is likely to have peach, yellow or golden undertones and so would suit a warm-toned foundation.
If you suit colours like magenta, silver, grey, blue-red or jewel tones, then your skin is likely to have cool undertones with pink, red or blue undertones and so would suit a cool-toned or neutral foundation.If you prefer to disguise pink tones to your skin, then a neutral-toned foundation would achieve that.
If you look good in any of these colours, then your skin is likely to have neutral/mixed undertones. If unsure, check the veins on your arms, as those with cool-toned complexions have blue or purple veins, whilst those with warm complexions tend to have green veins, and if you cannot decide, then you most likely have neutral undertones.
