It Starts With Seint's IIID Foundation

Do you want to try out Seint’s IIID Foundation but don’t know where to start?


I’m here to share with you all my top tips on how to enhance your facial features using this Seint makeup technique called HAC.


Seint’s IIID Foundation is about highlighting and contouring or simply HAC. It is the ultimate technique for sculpting your face and bringing out those gorgeous details. It’s totally easy to follow— so whether you want subtle looks or night time glam, there’s something for you!


And if you’re interested to know how to achieve that beautiful glow, read on! You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to transform yourself into a show-stopping beauty with minimal effort. 


Now let’s get started!


What is Highlighting And Contouring?

HAC is a makeup technique popularized by Seint to enhance the features of an individual’s face instead of covering up those gorgeous features with layers of makeup! 


Previously, a technique reserved for makeup artists, that is simply not the case anymore. Seint takes out the complexity in makeup and reveals the makeup artists’ trade secrets with just a single layer of makeup! Think about time saver!


Highlighting involves applying lighter shade of makeup such as a brightener to bring radiance to your face and put the focus on your features. As well, using a shade closest to your skin tone neutralizes discolorations and imperfections. 


Contouring uses darker colors to reduce the size of prominent parts of your face, like wide noses or chubby cheeks, and to bring out your cheek bones. 


Both highlighting and contouring can be done using creams, powders, liquids, gels, sprays and sticks depending on personal preference. But cream makeup like Seint is proven to be the easiest to work with in terms of application and staying power, that’s how Seint Beauty makes makeup easy!


It all starts with understanding what works for you; knowing which shade suit your complexion so your makeup looks all natural and the cream blends like a dream as they say!

Tools and Products For HAC

Before you can start HAC’ing your face, there are a few things that you’ll need. The most important items in your makeup bag are an angled contour brush and a round highlight brush for applying and buffing creams. As for the creams in your makeup palette — you need at least two highlights, one to brighten and one for coverage; one contour; and a lip+cheek cream for added warmth. For added radiance, topping off with an illuminator is like the icing on the cake.


An angled brush is great for applying contour to help create precise definition along the jawline, on to the forehead and sides of the nose. 


A brightening highlight will bring out an inner glow while the main highlight will provide buildable coverage. On the other hand, a contour mimics the shadow when defining areas like cheeks and forehead. 


Apply the lip and cheek creams for a flushed appearance on the cheeks, while the illuminator creates a luminous glow. 

Now that you have all these essential products ready at hand, it’s time to start using them correctly!


How to Apply HAC

Knowing where to apply your HAC is half of the battle, but the key to your natural look is knowing how.  Here are some tips to help you master your HAC: 

  • When applying a brightening highlight, use a round brush and start at the undereye, forming an inverted triangle. Sweep up along the bridge of your nose, across the temple of your forehead and over any other areas where you want to add a bit of radiance. Remember to be light-handed with this step; too much product can make your face appear cakey or unnatural.
  • A main highlight in shades that match your skin tone provides for a full face coverage.
  • For contouring, use an angled brush and apply the darker shade slightly below the area where you applied the highlights— think hollows of cheeks and sides of nose—to create shadows on certain features.  To keep things looking natural, choose colors that mimic real shadows like taupe and browns.
  • Apply the cheek color just above the cheekbones.


Technique For A Flawless HAC

Creating a flawless finish can be intimidating, but with Seint’s cream products, you’ll soon learn how to HAC like a pro! To make things easier for yourself, take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the basics:


1) Prep your skin. Before applying any product, cleanse and moisturize your face well. A good skincare is the key to any good makeup. This will ensure that your HAC has a clean base and lasts all day long. Use a primer before HAC if you prefer.


2) Choose the right brush. For an even application, use an angled side of the the IIID brush or beauty blender—this allows you to apply just enough cream exactly where you want it.


3) Select the appropriate shade of product. For the main highlight, choose one that is a shade darker than your natural skin tone in order to use less product. Choose a shade lighter for the brightening cream. And for contour, choose one that creates a natural looking shadow.  Lip+Cheek cream is more of a preference, choose one that your heart desires.

Also, to get your shades right, you may opt for a Seint Artist to help you.  Simply fill this color match form.


4) Apply lightly and blend thoroughly. Don’t forget to work from lightest to darkest; this way there will be no harsh lines visible once everything has been blended out. To achieve airbrushed results, soften edges by blending into the highlighter applied previously.

With these few easy steps you can easily enhance your features while still keeping it looking natural!


Different Shades Of Products Depending On Skin Tone

To achieve the best results with highlight and contour, it’s important to choose shades of product that match your skin tone. 


For dark skin tones, you can use deep brown or black hues for contouring, while lighter complexions should opt for taupe shades instead. 


And when it comes to highlighting, those with darker skin will want to reach for an ivory shade while fair-skinned people may benefit from a gold hue. 


No matter what color your complexion is, always remember to start off lightly and build up gradually— blending thoroughly as you go along!


The right combination of highlight and contour shades can make any feature stand out in bold relief – so don’t be afraid to experiment until you find the perfect balance for yourself! With trial and error (and some practice) you’ll soon learn how to master highlighting and contouring.
