Silk Fluid Foundation
Contains approx 5 ml
Silk Fluid Foundation from ZAO is blended with naturally occurring, eco-friendly, vegan ingredients that work together to form the perfect mix of fluid foundation that evens out different complexions, whilst also letting all kinds of skin types breath. This is possible due to its velvety textures being easy to apply with ingredients that have all been validated as organic by Ecocert.
This silk foundation comes with it's very own reusable, luxury cotton drawstring travel pouch. Perfect for on-the-go, as its convenient size can be kept in your day-to-day bag or makeup pouch!
Although Zao isn’t completely plastic free, their silk foundation is natural and comes in a glass bottle, it is also vegan and cruelty free, making a much healthier, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to purchasing an entirely plastic foundation tube. As a brand they are continually trying to reduce plastic packaging and are hoping to eradicate it in the future.
As with all Zao products, this is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives), instead Zao use micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. Zao does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making Zao products safe and free from man made toxic chemical preservatives.

If colours like gold, copper, bronze, orange-reds and earthy tones suit you, then your skin is likely to have peach, yellow or golden undertones and so would suit a warm-toned foundation.
If colours like magenta, silver, grey, blue-red or jewel tones suit you, then your skin is likely to have cool undertones with pink, red or blue undertones. This would suit a cool-toned or neutral foundation. If you prefer to disguise pink tones to your skin, then a neutral-toned foundation would help you achieve that.
If you look good in any of these colours, then your skin is likely to have neutral/mixed undertones. If unsure, check the veins on your arms, as those with cool-toned complexions have blue or purple veins, whilst those with warm complexions tend to have green veins, and if you cannot decide, then you most likely have neutral undertones.
