Fair Neutral, a very light shade (absolutely the clearest in the Neve Cosmetics range) with a neutral undertone. Ideal for natural blondes that never tans, lovers of the Gothic look or the very pale Nordics.
Light Neutral, light shade with neutral undertone. For light skin with a natural color, which does not tend to yellow or pink. Light Neutral is the famous foundation to feel good almost at all, especially in the winter months. If you are of Caucasian origin (hair between blond and brown), with light skin that is struggling to get a tan, this is probably your color.
Light Rose, light shade with pink undertone. Naturalissima on rosy and light Nordic complexions, ideal for natural blondes and reds. If almost all the foundations on your skin are too yellow, the ideal background is probably Light Rose.
Light Warm, light shade with warm undertones. The foundation for light but not cold skin: unlike the Light Neutral, it has an amber undertone that makes it ideal for pale Mediterranean skin. If almost all the light foundations on your skin are too rosy, the Light Warm is probably the ideal solution.
Medium tone with neutral undertone, for medium-colored skin, neither pale nor dark. This nuance of snow foundation is perfect for the tan that tans without efforts but that do not have a too Mediterranean complexion. If the color of your skin can be defined as “normal” (neither pale nor tanned, nor rosy nor olive) the Medium Neutral will be the ideal color.
Medium Warm, medium shade with warm and Mediterranean undertones. For medium-toned skins (neither pale nor dark) that brown easily. Perfect for the Mediterranean with slightly olive undertone.
Tan neutral, dark shade with neutral undertone. The natural color for tanned or dark skin that does not have golden or Mediterranean undertones.
Tan Warm, dark shade with warm and Mediterranean undertones. The ideal foundation color for tanned, dark skin with a warm, olive undertone.
ADVICE ON USE: HOW TO APPLY THE FOUNDATION
For a natural result and to spread the foundation evenly on the face, just withdraw little product with a synthetic bristle brush and apply the foundation with circular movements on the face. To obtain a more covering and corrective texture, Neve Cosmetics recommends spraying water or fixing mist onto the bristles after taking the product.
Which makeup brush to use? To apply the “Flat Perfection” Neve Cosmetics foundation, you need to use brushes kabuki Snow offers especially the practical Flatbuki brush (price 11,90 Euro) from very soft, compact and synthetic bristles. The classic Kabuki or the mini size that is really comfortable to carry a handbag may also be fine. The more indicated for the compact foundation is the Flatbuki Brush because it does not have the bristles that end with a rounded shape but it is dish , ideal to limit the dispersion of the product and to retain the right amount of foundation.
REVIEW AND PERSONAL REVIEWS
Like the other mineral snow funds, i Flat Perfection they have the great advantages related to them formulation , completely mineral and natural, free of any substance harmful to our skin, without silicones, petrolatum or parabens as already anticipated at the beginning. They are perfect for those with one mixed or oily skin, skin with acne, problematic, tending to lucidity, because the dust is slight , matting and does not close the pores. I do not recommend them to anyone who has one dry skin and needs a lot of hydration, especially in the cold season. In my opinion, however, they can be used by those who have normal skin – dry during the summer, for example when you tend to sweat more because of the hot temperatures and on the face you create the unsightly shiny effect. These foundations make the skin opaque and have a very natural finish.
The powder of the foundations Flat Perfection Neve Cosmetics it is almost impalpable, easily conforms to the complexion of the face and creates a “I can not see” makeup effect the trick is there but you can not see it ! The skin remains very soft with a velvety touch effect. The foundations Flat Perfection they have one average coverage , and as a result they are very reminiscent of the first version of the Neve mineral funds, which were on the market before the launch of the high coverage range.
It is possible to use these foundations even when wet, but in my opinion the best result is obtained from dry, because it preserves the natural effect that characterizes these products.
Flat Perfection Neve Cosmetics is a foundation Valid alternative free powder snow foundation, for those who want to have a more practical packaging in use and to take with you during the day. The powder in format compact do not disperse and the mirror in the package is very convenient for touch-ups. Remember though that they are less opaque than those in free high coverage dust.
