Kryolan Makeup for those who don’t know it, is a professional makeup line. The extremely reputable, illustrious, super pigmented and colourful world of Kryolan Makeup. It’s been heralded as the makeup made by professionals for professionals for theatre, film and TV.

The company was transpired by a brilliant man by the name of Arnold Langer. His admiration for the theatre and his educational background as a chemistry student, determined the Eureka moment that ensued. Post world war 2, when theatres were re-opening again; Arnold was inspired with the glitz and glamour of 1920s Berlin. He wanted to combine his passion for the creative arts with his background of science to create something the world has never seen before. He figured out that there was a missing gap in the market for a product that artists and actors of that era can use to withstand the elements and longevity of working in the theatre. So he endeavored to develop a groundbreaking makeup line catered for professionals.

Thus, in 1945 Berlin, Germany, Kryolan Makeup was born. A professional range of makeup products perfected and developed with dynamic colours, unique formulation and manufacturing like no other. From then on Kryolan has built an incredible empire to spread in all parts of the world giving us the best and innovative makeup from the original makeup house.

A Primer is a barrier that sits in between your skin and makeup. Primer is used to predominately make makeup last longer and smooth out the skin’s surface before foundation application.  In order for your foundation to look immaculate in a porcelain matte or dewy finish, you must have the right primer. Kryolan brings us the cream of the crop for the perfect base in these three amazing primers.

HD Micro Primer, I have personally used this myself and adore the HD Micro Primer. It utilities silk proteins to regulate the skin’s moisture levels, while blurring fine lines and minimising pores, drying to a matte velvet finish. It feels hydrating without the sense of an obvious film over your face.

Ultra Underbase is a thinner lightweight solution compared to the HD, it feels cooler to the touch. It feels super hydrating that will help with a dewy type of foundation look giving extra radiance. This primer also has a pleasant lotion type of mellow fragrance.

Perfect Matte Gel using a pea sized amount of this will go a long way. This silicone based matte gel is ideal for combination to oily skin. It dries to a soft matte finish and is adept in absorbing oil, maintaining the longevity of foundation and concealers.

Baking, the newest thing following contouring is the art of baking. Baking is the term used to set your cream concealer by dabbing your powder puff, makeup wedge or beauty sponge into loose powder and dabbing it onto the  cream/liquid makeup to set it for longevity.
