Directions from packaging:

Suggested Usage:-Start by prepping your skin with your favorite IT Cosmetics moisturizer. If you have normal to dry skin, use Confidence in a Cream (sold separately). If you have combination to oily skin, use Confidence in a Gel Lotion (sold separately). For the most flawless foundation application, allow the moisturizer to fully absorb first. To ensure your perfect shade match:-With your hand on the lid, shake the bottle before use for even distribution of the full-coverage pigments.-Allow the formula to completely dry to reveal its truest tone before making your decision. -If you are in-between two shades, try the lighter shade.Application Tips:-A little goes a long way. Start by applying one pump onto the back of your hand.-Using the Heavenly Skin Skin-Hugging Foundation Brush #707 (sold separately), swirl the brush into the foundation, and apply in sweeping motions starting in the center of your face and blending outward. For hard-to-reach areas, such as under the eyes and around the nose, use the outer edge of the brush.-For more coverage, apply additional product onto the back of your hand, then swirl the brush into the foundation and stipple (bounce) the brush onto skin.-As your finishing step, sweep a small amount of Bye Bye Pores Powder (sold separately) all over, using the Heavenly Luxe Wand Ball Powder Brush #8 (sold separately) for an ultimate airbrushed effect.Precautions:-This product contains a marine-derived ingredient. If you have sensitivity to fish-derived ingredients, please review the ingredient section.
