One of the most fundamental parts of a makeup routine is getting your base on point. But it's not easy to find your match. There are foundations that can be too heavy, too sheer, too dry, too wet — you get the idea. Thankfully, CLIO adds the Nudism Velvetwear Foundation to their product range to make sure your base is the best that it can be, effortlessly. 

The foundation promises a seamless finish with sheer, nude-like coverage that's perfect for everyday use. Despite its thin and lightweight consistency, it still helps mellow down the visibility of imperfections without looking too heavy and cakey on the skin.

It also features unique anti-oxidising properties to make sure your makeup stays fresh and not discoloured even as you go about your day. Top pick material, don't you think? But that's not all. It also comes with its own brush, too, so no need to go through the whole 'sponge or brush' dilemma to find the perfect application method!

At this day and age where most everyone aims for an Instagrammable photo, finding the right pose is key. Capturing your best angle is not something that should be taken lightly and the rise of influencers who seem to never run out of poses are living proof of this. But since not everyone has the time to formulate their photos prior to taking that shot, we're giving you a pose that could serve as your default. It provides maximum impact, minus the hassle: the head on hand. 

The technique gives a caught-off-guard vibe to your photo, making your features look more relaxed and natural. It also helps make your face the focal point of the image, ensuring a candid yet flattering result. 

Not sure how to work this pose? Let our Clozetters be your guiding example.
