By Liz Hancock

Find Your Perfect Foundation at Farmers Beauty Week 2015
Let Farmers help you find the perfect foundation at Farmers Beauty Week 2015

Farmers Beauty Week 2015 kicks off on 17 March and runs till 22 March. Go to your nearest Farmers for masterclasses, seminars, consultations and product trials with the country’s top beauty brands.

Here, Farmers beauty experts show you how to find your perfect foundation.

Mineral Foundation

Mineral foundations have been embraced in recent years as women are drawn to the idea that they are more natural, and therefore kinder to your skin. Mineral foundation is also available as a liquid foundation. We love Nude by Nature Mineral Liquid Foundation $44.95 and Revlon Nearly Naked Mineral Powder Foundation $39.99.

Compact Foundation

The convenient case containing a sponge and mirror allows you to retouch your make up discreetly anywhere, as well as providing great coverage. We love Max Factor Facefinity Compact $37.99 or Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Sponge On Cream Makeup $74.

Liquid Foundation

Liquid foundation adds moisture to the skin, and allows for great buildable coverage. It can be applied with clean fingertips, sponge, or a foundation brush. There are many advanced formulas depending on the finish you are looking for, be it sheer, natural, matte, or radiant. We love L’Oréal Infallible Foundation $43.99 and Lancôme Teint Miracle Foundation $69*.

BB/CC Creams

BB (Beauty Balm) creams have become a real trend over the last two years,
and are considered to be the new tinted moisturiser, with added skincare benefits and light coverage.

CC (Complexion Corrector) creams are similar to BB creams but focus on colour related skin issues, such as sallowness or redness. These new products both have SPF, essential for protecting skin in the New Zealand environment.

We love Chi Chi Super BB Cream $31.99 and Estée Lauder Double Wear BB All-Day Glow $69*.


What’s the secret to flawless foundation? The Perfect Primer! Primers create a velvety base for makeup to stay put for longer. They can blur wrinkles, mattify skin, add radiance, minimise the appearance of pores and even out skin tone. We love L’Oréal Revitalift Magic Blur Finishing Cream $32.99 or Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Good Morning Retexturising Primer $61.
