Stay-In-Place & 24hr Foundations

Stay-In-Place & 24hr Foundations

It can be easy to fall in love with these foundations when they give you a flawless look that lasts all day (even in the humid weather!)

But is that really what is best?

“I’ve encountered many clients wearing long-wear, stay in place foundations over the years. The problem with these products is that they act as a film over the skin. It takes several cleanses to cleanse long-wear foundations off the skin thoroughly. Everyone should double cleanse makeup off regardless, but I’ve found I’m still cleansing twice that amount when trying to get these products off the skin. Residual makeup still comes out of the pores when going on to do a microdermabrasion treatment. This speaks for itself. It’s all about educating the client about these products & other alternatives that are healthy for the skin. It is our largest organ after all, & we need to take care of it. The other marketing ploy to be cautious of is “dermatologist tested”. They don’t give the outcome of the test. What was the result? What were they testing? Did the dermatologist approve of the product to match the claim?” Rhiannon Delaney – Dermal Therapist

Most of these long-wear products contain harmful ingredients such as silicones, alcohols, fragrances, parabens & comedogenic (clogging) ingredients. These ingredients aren’t just unhealthy for the skin. Recent research suggests they may also be carcinogenic, meaning they can transform healthy cells into cancer cells.

Although these ingredients can make your skin look flawless on the surface, their long-wearing, staying power can wreak havoc on your skin underneath. You get in the habit of wearing it every day to cover up the breakouts without realising that it can be one of the significant contributors to your skin woes. It’s a vicious cycle!

What can you do instead?

1. Try a high-quality mineral makeup

We recommend Synergie Mineral makeup, a cosmeceutical mineral makeup range formulated to benefit your skin. There are four different foundation formulations to choose from:


A revolutionary 4-in-1 foundation: primer, concealer, UV protector, & antioxidant cream foundation. This foundation provides creamy coverage & natural UV protection with 40% mineral sunscreen & squalene which is rich in antioxidants, vitamins & nutrients. Fully blendable, this foundation can take your look from sheer to full coverage.

Second Skin Crush

Our loose mineral foundation with broad-spectrum sun protection. Second Skin Crush is a lightweight loose mineral foundation with over 50% zinc oxide & titanium dioxide. This provides superior natural UVA/B protection & a luminous appearance on the skin. Second Skin Crush also contains pure botanical ingredient clinically proven to prevent moisture loss by providing a release of hydrating liposomes.


A BB liquid mineral foundation with zinc oxide UV protection & niacinamide. A light BB liquid mineral foundation that provides natural to medium level coverage. Mineral zinc oxide & iron oxide pigments give broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) environmental protection. Harnessing niacinamide (Vitamin B3) & lycopene, this cosmeceutical base will address hydration, uneven skin tone, free radical damage & signs of premature ageing creating an even, flawless finish.


More than your average pressed powder, SkinPressive is a lightweight mineral foundation designed for natural coverage & optimal skin health. In a convenient compact for on-the-go touch-ups, this foundation contains 35% combined zinc oxide, titanium dioxide & iron oxides for complete solar protection.Anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing & pore-minimising ingredients complement your skin care routine to keep your complexion protected, hydrated, calm & radiant.

Not all mineral makeup is formulated correctly. To find out what ingredients to look for & avoid read Terri Vinson’s blog Spotlight On Mineral Makeup: The Benefits & What To Look For here.

2. Get regular skin treatments to clear & balance the skin.

One of the most common reasons for wearing these foundations is to hide imperfections, so a treatment plan with a Dermal Therapist is the best option. Try & stick to monthly skin treatments (at least), & if on a budget, your best option is to look into places that offer skin treatment memberships. These can be extremely cost-effective as they break up the price into affordable repayments, & have your treatments planned & sorted for the year!
