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.

Coverage: strong

Packaged in a glass bottle with bamboo lid and featuring an easy-to-use pump dispenser, the product is attractively presented in a cotton pouch with drawstring, making ZAO makeup both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.

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. You can also apply with fingers.

ZAO Beauty Tip: choose a colour that matches your skin tone on face and neck 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 match. 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 of your face,blending into teh neck area.

    Beautiful - I applied with a brush and the finish is medium with no sinking or patchy areas later on.

    Silk foundation-713 Fair Beige

    Posted by Bellah on 5th Jun 2018

    Thanks for samples,they are so helpful. This shade is dark for me,so I am glad I have only sample. I am pale with freckles and I would need a bit lighter one. Texture is nice and blends well in to skin,just coverage is not enough. This would be great choice for young girl with young skin, but for my mature skin it's not enough. My freckles are still visible too.
    I prefer compact foundation for older skin ,which I tried from Zao and has better coverage.

    Amazing the best foundation in the market

    Posted by Kim Thompson on 10th May 2018

    I have tried every organic brand going on my hyper sensitive skin.
    This gives equally as good a coverage as giorgio armani foundation ( which is excellent but full of chemicals and gives me spots!)
    I brought 2 shades and have been mixing them for my ideal colour...even the samples are super generous and gave me a great idea of which full sizes to buy.
    This goes on easily it doesn't dry my skin out it lasts and it covers my redness.

    Great product

    Posted by Elena on 31st Aug 2017

    Very nice smooth and silky consistency, easy to remove as all natural ingredients. Love the packaging and the fact that the pump does allow you to take out as much product as you need.
