A must have for stage performances, this compact foundation has a dry, powdery texture to camouflage all types of imperfections. The formula provides full coverage with a matte finish.
Apply with a damp sponge. Use lightly around the eye area to avoid accentuating lines or wrinkles. For best results, apply directly on dry bare skin or on an oil-free base.
For a more natural finish, after Pancake has dried remove the excess powder with a brush. Pan Cake can also be used dry as a powder and should be applied with a dense powder brush like #124 Kabuki Brush.
This foundation should not be applied to an oily base (oily skin, oil-based primer, perspiration). If necessary, pat the face with a sponge beforehand, then apply toner.
It should be applied with a soft, wet, flexible sponge.
The amount of water used to moisten the sponge is very important : too much water creates a transparent, uneven finish and leaves streaks.
Take enough foundation to cover the face in one application, if possible, with large movements in order to avoid going over the same area several times.
