Shake before use. Apply a small dab of the liquid foundation to your cheeks, chin and forehead. Using clean fingers or a brush, blend the foundation outward. Finish with a dusting of setting powder, loose or pressed, if needed.

Can be applied with your fingers, sponge, brush or try our buffer brush for a smooth, airbrush-like finish. Build coverage as needed. For sheer coverage, it is easily thinned with moisturizer or serum. For a dewier finish, try mixing with a drop or two of your favourite face oil before applying.

SAPPHO products are clean products I don't have to worry about using on my sensitive and aging skin. I highly recommend...

After a year of searching on the web for a clean, vegan, cruelty-free foundation that didn't leave my skin feeling sticky or dry, I came across this one and couldn't be happier with it! [...] So glad I finally found you!

Kimberly G.

I love this makeup. The coverage is perfect. It gives a very smooth but also natural finish. It is easy to apply and stays on all day.
