First, we will check your skin concerns and characteristics through a consultation. After learning what the foundation is made of,  you will create your own to match your skin's needs. You'll weigh and mix the ingredients and then use a mortar to mix thoroughly. When the ingredients are mixed and the desired color is obtained, you will sift the mixture with a tea strainer and put it in the case. Your instructor will instruct you on how to use and store it properly.
The finish is a smooth powder. (Approx. 3 to 6 months worth)
