7 products in one: The Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base
The term "multi-purpose" doesn't begin to describe the complexities of our legendary Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base. This little pot of brilliance hydrates, contours, adds definition, shades and gives a beautiful, warm tuscan glow to your complexion all from the palm of your hand. It's every woman's secret weapon - a handbag essential - and will take you from winter to summer, day to night, with just a few dabs of your fingers. Here are 7 ways we love to use the Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base.
1. Blend it with your moisturiser
For quick, all-over coverage, apply a small amount of your moisturiser to the pot. Then, swirl around the pot with foundation brush and apply the creamy mixture directly to your face. This will give you an even, subtle glow and will save you you some time in the morning too!
2. Use it as a contour
Either using a contour brush or your fingertips, take a small amount of the Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base and smooth it underneath your cheek bones working gently up towards your ears, around the temples, slightly down the sides of the nose and underneath the jaw. This will give depth and dimension to the face while still letting the texture of your skin shine through.

3. Opt for a nude lip
The Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base is great at mute the naturally warmer pigments and giving you a nude lip. It's lighter in consistency than matte or sticky lipsticks, so it makes an easy, natural looking subtle alternative to getting that on-trend lip!
4. Shade your eyes
Perfect for enhancing blue, green, brown and hazel eyes, the warm brown pigment in the Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base works beautifully as a base for your eyeshadow, or on it's own as a soft, brown smoke. Dab it on to your eyelids with your fingers for a summery carefree look, or blend it up towards to crease and brow bone and alone the lower lash line for more high-fashion approach.
5. Faux a natural glow
Instead of sitting atop your skin like powder bronzers, the Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base blends seamlessly into your foundation, LB Cream or moisturiser. Apply it with your fingertips, dabbing and blending wherever the sun would naturally fall - across the nose, the top of the cheek bones, along the hairline at the top of your forehead and a little on your chin! And voila! You'll look like you've just spend a week in the tropics!
6. Match your tan
If you've just applied one of our Gradual or Immediate tanning products and your face is suddenly glowing ghostly white by comparison, don't fear. You can deepen the shade of your LB Cream or foundation by applying a small amount of it to the pot. Then, swirl around the pot with foundation brush and apply the creamy mixture directly to your face.
7. Elevate your summer skin
The Velvet Bronzing Makeup Base has a revolutionary texture: it goes on cream and settles to a satin finish. That means, you can still glow without looking dewy or sticky. A perfect polished pigment safe for work or a more sophisticated beauty look, like a red lip!
