Seint Makeup for Beginners: Your Ultimate Guide to Mastering the Art of Cream Makeup
“Seint cream makeup” refers to the makeup products offered by Seint Official, a cosmetics brand known for its cream-based formulas. Seint makeup includes products such as highlight (foundation), lip & cheeks (blush and lip colors), illuminator (highlighter), contour, eyeshadow, and more. These cream-based products are designed to offer buildable coverage and blendability, allowing users to achieve a natural, flawless look, perfect for all ages and skin types. Seint’s approach to makeup focuses on simplicity and enhancing natural beauty, often utilizing a technique called “HAC” (highlight and contour) to create dimension and definition on the face.
HOW DO YOU APPLY SEINT?
With a cream makeup, it’s important to prep the skin a little differently. A cream sits on the skin surface instead of absorbing into the skin and showing wrinkles and pores more.
Prep Your Skin
You’ll need less here than you’re used to with liquid or powder. I recommend ONLY using moisturizer on dry patches, if you have any. Cream makeup keeps skin more hydrated than liquid/powder makeup. A serum (if not an oily serum) can work well, such as the Layers serum I’ve talked about as well as using a sunscreen for your skin type. If you need help finding one for your skin type, here’s a link to my Sunscreen Guide Blog. If you use a sunscreen designed for your skin type and not just because you know it’s a good brand, it will work best.
Select Your Shades: This is where I come in with your customized color match – I can tell you which foundation shades are right for you if you request a color match! Choose your shades of highlight, contour, and illuminator. Seint offers a variety of shades and a custom color match from me can assure confidence in the colors being chosen.
Importance of Seint Brushes: Seint brushes are essential for achieving seamless and flawless makeup application. They are specifically designed to work with Seint’s cream-based products, ensuring optimal blending and precision.
*Personal note – I didn’t start out using Seint brushes. I can attest to how much these brushes do matter for cream makeup with Seint.
Beginner’s Favorite Brushes for my Clients:
For beginner application, two must-have brushes are the Blend Brush and IIID Brush. The Blend Brush is perfect for blending multiple shades seamlessly, while avoiding excessive use of foundation while you adjust to using a cream makeup and getting comfortable with it. The IIID Brush will help with cream makeup blush application (using the big end of the brush) and if more coverage is desired, a light press with your final highlight color will finish out the look with perfection.
Using your favorite Seint brushes (the Blend Brush is my preference for beginners), apply the color correcting highlight shade to areas of your face where extra coverage is needed for darker areas. Follow this by your main highlight shade, needed for the other areas of the face and finish application with the brightening highlight color if you would like to brighten key areas – this color is most like a “concealer.” These underlined shades are all included within your custom color match from me; the brightening highlight color is optional.
Next, using the Blend Brush or IIID Brush, apply the contour shade to areas you’d like to add depth to or define, such as the hollows of your cheeks, along the jawline, the sides of your nose, and around the forehead. Blend this color out well to avoid harsh lines.
Using the IIID Brush or your fingertips (depending on the area), apply the illuminator shade to the high points of your face where you want to add a subtle glow. This can be places such as the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and the cupid’s bow above your lip.
Blend the highlight, contour, and illuminator shades together seamlessly on your skin using your Seint brushes. Use a stippling motion to ensure a smooth and even application.
Set if Necessary:
If you have oily skin or want to extend the wear of your makeup, you can set the IIID Foundation with a light press of translucent powder using the Seint Powder Brush. This is optional – I personally feel if you use a sunscreen best for you skin type that helps most of all.
If you’ve chosen a blush shade, lightly apply it to the apples of your cheeks using the Seint iiid brush for a pop of color and added dimension.
Practice and Experiment:
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different application techniques and brushes to find what works best for you. Practice makes perfect! If you’re looking for different techniques, I have many examples on Instagram and YouTube.
Enjoy Your Radiant Look:
Step back, admire your work, and enjoy your beautifully enhanced features with Seint IIID Foundation and your new favorite Seint brushes!
Remember, less is often more with Seint IIID Foundation. Start with a small amount of product and build up as needed for your desired coverage. Embrace the importance of Seint brushes in achieving a flawless makeup look, and have fun exploring and embracing your natural beauty!
