Zao Foundation Stick is a versatile cream foundation in a stick format, delivering a natural lightly powdered finish that feels comfortable on skin. Available in 14 shades, this multi-functional foundation stick readily camouflages imperfections and evens out skin tone with its buildable medium to strong coverage. The stick can be used all over the face as a foundation, applied directly to conceal problem areas or as a contouring product with a lighter and darker shade from the range. Suitable for all skin types, the formula is rich in organic jojoba oil, organic shea butter, organic candelilla waxes and organic carnauba, renowned for their soothing and moisturising properties.
Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
This product, as with all ZAO products, is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives), using instead micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. ZAO does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making ZAO products safe and free from toxic chemical preservatives.
ZAO Ingredients Highlight:
Organic Jojoba Oil: Calming and softening, this oil penetrates easily into skin without leaving a greasy residue. Protecting the skin from wrinkles and dehydration, the oil’s dry texture strengthens the skin’s hydrolipidic film and regulates sebum flow.
Organic Shea Butter: Extracted from shea nuts, shea butter is a tree that grows solely in the wild of the savannahs of West Africa. It is renowned for its nourishing and moisturising properties, thanks to its fatty acid-rich composition.
Organic Carnauba Wax is a film-forming agent that is secreted by the leaves of the palm tree, native to Brazil. The wax protects skin by producing a continuous film that enhances the staying power of makeup.
Instructions for use: For a full foundation coverage, simply apply the stick directly to cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Blend with the Beauty Blender Sponge until desired effect is achieved. To correct minor imperfections, you can also use Zao Foundation Stick as a concealer to camouflage these, thanks to its strong coverage. For use in contouring, Zao’s Foundation Stick is an easy way to acheive this sophisticated makeup look where you can redesign the shape of your face by playing with shadow and light. Two shades should be selected: one for illumination and another to create shadows and rebalance proportions. Each face shape has its own recommended contouring technique to mask imperfections and highlight best features.
ZAO Beauty tip: Choose the colour that matches the colour of your skin. Neither too bright nor too dark to avoid contrast with the natural complexion of the neck. For a medium coverage, you can apply directly with fingers. The foundation is applied from the centre to the outside, without forgetting the nose.
