Directions

For best results prep skin with your favorite Vapour Primer.

Warm Luminous Foundation in a circular motion against the back of your hand. Apply directly to skin from stick. Buff in a circular motion with Vapour Foundation Brush moving from center of face outward. Build coverage as desired.

Set complexion with Perfecting Powder using the Vapour Powder Brush.

Pro Tip

Conceal – You’re in control. Luminous does double duty as under-eye and spot concealer and layers beautifully with all Vapour Foundation formulas. Tap it on under your eyes with your fingertips or use the All Over Shadow Brush for the most precision and control.

Pro Tip

Contour to define and add dimension. 133 is the perfect contour shade for fair to light skin tones. For medium to deep skin tones pick a color a few shades darker than your perfect foundation match. Use the deeper shade on hairline, temples and under the natural contour of the cheekbones. Stick makes sculpting easy.

Pro Tip

Highlight: choose a shade of Luminous Foundation two shades lighter than your foundation shade. Apply to high planes of the face like cheekbones and brow bone. Stick makes natural highlighting easy.

Pro Tip

To make your foundation last all day long, roll a very small amount of Loose Perfecting Powder across the skin between primer and foundation. Then roll another light layer of powder to lock your look in place.

Great Foundation

I really like it. Very light and great skin tone match. The only thing I think could be improved is the smell. It's not very pleasing.

great concealer, blends perfectly with the multi stick. Applying moisturizer first is necessary for a smooth application.

Dissapointed Fan

This was my holy grail foundation, but the current formulation is a HUGE disappointment to me. It used to glide over my skin and give great luminous coverage without clinging to my dry patches. However, since the new packaging (and I guess re-formulation) this foundation tugs at my skin when I blend it, takes more product to get the same amount of coverage, does cling to my dry patches and doesn't give as luminous a finish.

Furthermore, in the 8+ years I've used this foundation the quantity in the tube has gone from 0.5 oz, to 0.4 oz and is now 0.29 oz. I'm sure this would still work well for those without dry skin, but sadly I will be looking for a new favorite foundation.

Hi Ashlyn, thank you for your honest review. We're sad to hear that Luminous Foundation isn't working for you! It's definitely not as glowy as it was prior to our reformulation. You may find that Gentle Illuminating Primer + Soft Focus Foundation are better formulas for your dry skin. We accept returns within 30 days of order delivery. For more details, visit our Returns & Exchanges page (https://vapourbeauty.com/pages/returns-exchanges). Please reach out to Customer Care at hello@vapourbeauty.com if we can assist.
