Our skin is like a canvas: Makeup only looks as good as the skin underneath!
That's why prepping your skin for makeup is a very important step that many of us tend to neglect or are even unaware of. But it's honestly very easy to get your skin in perfect shape for the most flawless makeup application!
Today, I'm going to share with you the three simple steps to achieving a perfect flawless base makeup with VDL!
VDL comes from Korea, and is an international cosmetic brand that was founded in 2012 by The Color Lab of LG Household and Health Care. They are a professional make-up brand that is dedicated in helping women to live and achieve their dreams by providing answers to one of their key desires, beauty.
I'm no stranger to VDL, I love many of their innovative products, like the Tint Bar Triple Shot, and Festival Mineral Blusher!
They've got great makeup products at affordable prices, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that VDL's skincare and base makeup products are just as awesome!
If you've always felt that your makeup doesn't go on well, or gets oily or patchy after a few hours in our hot climate, you've definitely got to give VDL's 3-step makeup routine a try, because I tried and tested it for myself, and I think it really helps my makeup go on better, and have it stay fresh-looking throughout a long day!
Of course, good makeup always starts with a good skincare product first, and SKIN P+R=O Almighty Ampoule Essence is the very first product to go on your skin after your cleanser and toner.
This powerful ampoule essence is able to penetrate into the deeper skin layers as it contains natural fermented ingredients (barley seed, potato and soya bean fermented extract) that helps break down the molecular structure of the ingredients to deliver nutrients for the skin and start its restorative work.
Prolonged usage of the SKIN P+R=O Almighty Ampoule Essence will help improve skin conditions and reduce the signs of ageing.As a triple functional skincare product, this ampoule essence contains substantial levels of Niacinamide, delivering whitening effect, Adenosine, a natural compound that penetrates deep into the skin, promoting skin healing and reduction of wrinkles, and Tocopherol, a type of vitamin E that provides excellent anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing benefits.
Not only does this ampoule essence provide nutrients for the skin for protection and recovery, it also contains 7 natural oils to soothe, smoothen and enhance skin complexion.
I was really impressed by the uber light-weight texture of the essence. It absorbed well into my skin and left my skin feeling more hydrated, softer and smoother straight away!
The second part of prepping your skin is the SKIN P+R=O Almighty Cream. Apply a layer of SKIN P+R=O Almighty Cream as the last step of skincare to lock in the nutrients!
As a dual-functioning cream, the Almighty Cream contains Niacinamide and nutmeg extracts to deliver whitening and anti-wrinkle function respectively. Also, the unique cream sports a balm-like texture that is effective in creating a unique protective layer on the skin (Breathing Protect Shield). This protects the skin by blocking the dust particles from entering the pores while still allowing oxygen molecules to pass through, ensuring healthy skin.
Not only does this cream provide nutrients for the skin for protection and recovery, it also contains 7 natural oils to soothe, smoothen and enhance skin complexion.
The texture of the Almighty Cream isn't really like a cream, but more like a balm, which melts into the skin upon application! I really enjoy the velvety texture of the SKIN P+R=O Almighty Cream. It forms a protective layer against micro-dusts and gives my skin a silky smooth finish!
After Step 1 with SKIN P+R=O Almighty Ampoule Essence and SKIN P+R=O Almighty Cream: my skin already looks more radiant and healthy!
Introducing VDL's worldwide bestseller: Lumilayer Primer! This is one amazing product that I know everyone would love! I already had this product in my makeup stash, even before this review, and I love it!!
Developed using the secondary branch of Lumilayer technology, Violet Lightflects technology, VDL’s Lumilayer Primer contains a Violet Lightflects pigment which evens out the skin tone while creating a clear, radiant and healthy skin for the next step of makeup. This primer is also create a 3-dimensional face line by reflecting light from all angles of the face.
Lumilayer Technology: By studying the wavelength of the violet light and applying it to cosmetics products, this light technology allows for multiple layering of VDL cosmetics products while maintaining the skin’s slow. This is suitable for all skin types and can also be mixed with your foundation in a 1:1 ratio.
The VDL Lumilayer Primer gives your skin this gorgeous radiant glow! The product itself has a pearlescent glow with very subtle shimmers in it, which when applied, makes my skin look naturally healthy and dewy. Love it! Of course, it also helps your makeup go on better and last longer!
Of course.. The final step to a flawless complexion has got to be foundation! VDL has reformulated their Perfecting Last Foundation, which is a long-lasting high-definition foundation that provides high coverage and an excellent blameless foundation base for the next steps of makeup.
Developed with the concept of providing long-lasting and high-coverage foundation, VDL introduces its re-formulated HD Perfecting Last Foundation. Formulated with in-house technology – Light-Fitting Cover Complex – this liquid foundation contains pigment particles that come with a flat surface, enabling smooth application without clumping, delivering a flawless and even foundation coverage.
Besides providing coverage, this liquid foundation also contains Lumilayer pigments to provide your skin with overall radiance after application.
This foundation also balances the water and oil levels in your skin with its Bio Moisture Layer technology that keeps your skin moisturised after application while protecting your skin.
I'm pretty particular about my foundations and VDL Perfecting Last Foundation meets all my fussy requirements. My foundation must be light-weight but still have decent coverage, must not oxidise, must not look cakey, and must match my skin tone well!
I love the texture, it blends so easily and effortless but gives me that naturally flawless finish!
Just take a look at the before and after: Can you see that my skin looks so much brighter, with a more evened out skin tone? I also like how the finish is semi-matte but still dewy and radiant!
And that brings me to the end of this ultra simple routine! Love how my skin looks so glowing and healthy, thanks to VDL's 3-step makeup routine! I don't even feel like I have to apply that much concealer or even eye make-up because just having that perfect-looking skin is enough to give me the confidence I need ;)
