ESSENTIAL FACE COMPACT
& BUFFER BRUSH

More than concealer. Less than foundation. Everything you want it to be.

DISCOVERED

It took Fara Homidi four years to get the formula right. Behind the scenes at every fashion show and editorial shoot, the makeup artist experimented with a customizable concealer/foundation/highlighter hybrid and a specially designed buffer brush until they delivered the natural-yet-perfected “runway skin” she’s known for. When the call came that the formula was finally ready, VG’s curators lept into action. 



TESTED

Imagine if your favorite blemish-erasing, melt-into-skin concealer had the stretch of a foundation and you could customize the finish to suit your mood: glowy or matte, sheer or full. The Essential Face Compact is this, exactly. Inside the (refillable) hand-polished compact, the Smooth Veil Soft Matte formula provides buildable, imperceptible coverage only where you need it. The gel-to-cream universally flattering champagne- hued Shine Baume, can be applied under or over the Soft Matte, mixed-in for slip, dimension, and glow, or worn on bare skin and lids for a little gleam. And then there’s the Buffer Brush: a perfectly petite ideal companion, with its rounded side designed to expertly melt makeup into skin while the flat side lays down the dewy baume with aplomb. 

“I love this formula. It is a true soft matte that blends into skin seamlessly. Pairing it with the dewy side is genius! I have true combo skin, so I mix both formulas for different areas of the face. And, the brush is my favorite shape and size for concealing.” 
–GRACE AHN, Makeup Artist 

“This lightweight cream is easy to build, and thanks to the baume (included in the very chic compact), you can adjust it to your ideal, glowy finish. The smaller size and soft hairs of the buffer brush make it ideal for precise blending. I also love it for applying cream blush!”
–ROBIN BLACK, Makeup Artist & Photographer 

“The compact’s discrete size fits perfectly into the most minuscule minaudiére for touch-ups throughout the evening. The lightweight, skin-perfecting formula evens the complexion without leaving it looking made-up, and the highlighter creates moist, glowing light reflection on the high points of the face. The buffer brush works perfectly for discrete touch ups—use it to conceal and brighten under-eyes and hide redness around nostrils or the tip of the chin.”  
–TROY SURRATT, Makeup Artist
