ZAO Silk Foundation applies easily and meets the needs of those who like a dewy, luminous complexion with full coverage. Organic sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter give this foundation a deep moisturising effect that nourishes dry skin, as well as organic silica contained in bamboo hydrosol. This foundation has a semi-matt finish and uniform coverage to facilitate a long lasting coverage throughout the day.

Instructions: Especially easy to apply thanks to its light texture, ZAO silk foundation is best used with a natural rubber sponge. You can also apply with fingers.
ZAO Beauty tip: Choose a colour that matches your skin tone on face and neck without being too bright or too dark, to avoid the telltale 'tidemark' effect on the neck area. Apply the foundation from the centre to the outside of your face, blending into the neck area.

Zao Silk Foundation Refills (3 Shades)
The Zao make-up range are made from natural, vegan and organic products, that are 100% cruelty free. This product is also palm oil free.
These lip glosses are refillable, so you only replace the inside and keep the outside case. The refill is widely recyled. This is the best alternative I have found so far for plastic free make-up.
These are a new product so are on my list to try when my current products run out.
