Don’t just use a great quality foundation, know how to apply it correctly too

Having a top foundation like the long-wearing Coppélia Flawless Finish Foundation in SPF15 is one thing, you still need to know that there’s a right and a wrong way to apply it.

Here’s 4 easy-to-follow steps to apply foundation the right way:

  • Step #1: Apply moisturiser or primer to create your canvas.
  • Step #2: Put a dollop (that’s a big drop) of your foundation onto your sponge or brush, then dot your nose, cheeks, chin and forehead with your foundation.
  • Step #3: With clean fingers, a damp sponge or a brush, spread these dots of foundation downward and outward, making sure to cover every part of your face.
  • Step #4: Achieve the perfect finish using the Coppélia Colour Blender Brush to blend your foundation.

Ellenor Ndlovu Makeup Expert Loose Powders

Get sheer natural coverage with Coppélia Colour Loose Powders

3 Handy tips to get smooth looking skin with loose powders:


  • Tip #1: Gently shake some of the powder into the lid and work with this controlled quantity. This will make it easier to keep from making a mess with excess powder.
  • Tip #2: Avoid wasting product by distributing it into the bristles. Hold the brush upside-down and gently tap it to move the powder down into the bristles. Tap excess powder back into the lid.
  • Tip #3: Concentrate on applying loose powders to the centre of your face. Buff it all in until you have a velvety finish and there are no lines or dark/light patches.

Add definition and drama to your lips with these best-selling Lip Liners

Take your lip game to the next level with these 3 tips to using Coppélia Lip Liners:

  • Tip #1: Always use lip liner that is a slightly darker shade than the matte lipstick you’re applying.
  • Tip #2: For the appearance of fuller lips, apply lip liner to the outer lip border.
  • Tip #3: For the appearance of thinner lips, apply lip liner to the inner lip border.

Top lipstick tip: Use a creamy moisturising lipstick like Coppélia Colour Impact Lipsticks that seals in moisture and leave your lips feeling ultra-soft. Plus, the bonus is that this range of lipsticks resist bleeding and feathering.
