When it comes to looking for make up that delivers professional results most people turn to either MAC or Illamasqua but for me the one brand that delivers extreme professional results is the original and the best…Kryolan.
Kryolan (or Charles Fox in England) has been running since the 1920’s and is the one make-up house to design and formulate its own products for professional use.
One of the biggest make-up trends currently is the ever popular HD foundation, foundations which deliver medium coverage but that are designed to be undetectable on camera or in person and one of my kit staples is the Ultra Fluid Foundation by Kryolan.
This is how Kryolan describes the product:
Ultra Fluid Foundation has a slightly enhanced covering quality compared to other fluids, without loss of its transparent appearance. Ultra Fluid Foundation comes in a glass bottle with applicator.

I have it in three colours Ivory, Alabaster and OB 2. You get 30ml of product and it is packaged in a sturdy glass bottle. There is no pump but there is an applicator wand which is handy for placing the product onto your hand or a palette prior to application.
It is a very thin watery texture that applies beautifully to the face or body, it offers sheer to medium coverage that you can build easily. It does feel quite odd on the face, it “dries” on the skin as the foundation sets. This of course means that there is no visible layer of foundation on the skin but it doesn’t make it a friend of dry skins at all.
This is an amazing product for photographic work as there is no SPF factor and not only is the shade range fantastic but the formula makes it SO easy to mix colours to get a perfect match.
It really is one of those products I think every MUA should have in their kits and it is a credit to the house of Kryolan.
