Most of us wear make-up every day and often for more than 12 hours a day. This means that our skin is ‘covered’ with an extra layer for most of the day. Now your skincare regime can still be that good; if you subsequently ‘cover’ your ritual with makeup that does not allow the skin to breathe or makeup that contains chemicals that actually irritate the skin, it will not do the skin any good.
As part of a total anti-aging plan, I advise my clients to opt for a make-up brand based on natural ingredients and parabens free (without preservatives). Of course, the makeup should not be tested on animals either. For my new location, I therefore only wanted to add a cosmetic brand to my assortment based on natural ingredients. My choice fell on Delilah. The brand makes professional makeup and is a favorite among many famous stars at home and abroad. All products are based on natural ingredients and help the skin shine.
Delilah has a beautiful collection of mineral foundations, primers and concealers in their ‘Future-proof beauty’ range. These products are full of antioxidants, SPFs and active natural ingredients that support the skin. For example, the primer contains peptides that make the skin look fuller immediately and that tackle fine lines. The mineral-based foundation contains Vitamin A and E – important antioxidants for the skin – and an SPF20 for extra protection against UV. For example, the daily ‘top layer’ that you apply is ‘natural’ and helps protect the skin.
The Time Frame basic collection ensures that the color adapts to the skin, resulting in a beautiful natural effect. With well-groomed skin with a beautiful glow, natural coverage is preferred. For minor irregularities, apply the concealer for extra coverage. The concealer contains hyaluronic acid that tackles fine lines around the eyes and provides extra hydration where your skin needs it.
Delilah also offers a wide selection of eye shadows, lipsticks, blushes and professional brushes. All products come in high-quality luxury packaging.
On March 23 we have a free Delilah Workshop planned at the Willemsparkweg from 11:00 – 17:00. A top make-up artist of the brand will be present to explain everything about Delilah, the products, the ingredients and the newest makeup trends for spring and summer! She helps you to choose the right products and colors for your skin and you immediately get a 45-minute session so that you learn how to apply the right base, create a fresh spring glow or apply the perfect smokey eye. .
There are only a few places available so call quickly to make an appointment at 020 854 5161.
The workshop is completely free and without obligation!
