“So this new brand, do we believe in it? Three times yes! A focus on “Intuitive Make-up”, which therefore comes spontaneously: the products attract, we test, we spontaneously go towards colors to which we are not used to, we do not risk the stolen car effect, the textures melt , the colors reveal without ever being imposed, all … for a natural result of course! “
Do you have shiny skin that you’ve tried almost everything?
The long quest for mattifying foundations could last for years because we can’t imagine how difficult it is to find a complexion product that looks beautiful but, in addition, regulates the shine of the face throughout. throughout the day.
Some are familiar with this painful phenomenon : in the morning everything is fine. Three hours later, the skin begins to shine. The foundation oxidizes, turns yellow, sebum appears all over the face and forms a glaze. It is neither pleasant (sensation of suffocation of the skin by the fat) nor beautiful to look at because as soon as the shine arrives, the pores seem more dilated, the imperfections appear ultra visible, as if they were enlarged a thousand times. In fact, fat acts like a magnifying glass . Nice isn’t it?
But rest assured nature creates solutions: micronized bamboo powder , rich in natural silica. This ingredient obtained from bamboo sap is made exactly for shiny skin. It absorbs up to twice its weight in sebum and incredibly regulates its appearance. We put it in our new Matt Minerals Powder Foundation and the results are there.
Bamboo powder allows the complexion to last 12 hours without return of shine even in certain difficult conditions . Thanks to this characteristic, the Matt Minerals Foundation falls directly into the category of ultra mattifying foundations . But he has other qualities. Applied with a brush, it modulates according to the needs of the skin , for an anti-imperfection action totally adaptable on a case-by-case basis. It can therefore switch from the lightweight foundation category to the covering foundation category, as needed. And whatever the coverage chosen, the result remains completely natural in a “bare skin” spirit.
Take a look at our model Leeny made up with the Matt Minerals Power Foundation . The photo has not undergone any Photoshop retouching . The shine, despite hours spent in the spotlight, is totally under control and the complexion is radiant, luminous with a very natural appearance despite the multiple passages of the brush.
To avoid the mask, plaster or overly powdered effect of covering foundations, we have completely avoided talc in the composition (very often the cause of this mask effect which dulls or freezes the complexion). Instead, we bet on crystalline bismuth powders . The effect is incomparable compared to talc: they illuminate the complexion, make it radiant. With the Matt Minerals Powder Foundation , the skin completely retains its naturalness and is veiled with a soft illuminating glowy.
Finally, to allow the skin not to mark areas of dryness or fine lines, organic sesame oil has been added to the composition. An ingredient that maintains the hydration of the epidermis and provides unique comfort .
Supple, soft, the skin does not tighten, the face lights up with a nice plump but does not shine. The Matt Minerals Power Foundation is a real beauty solution for skin that tends to shine.
So, ready for a matte complexion for 12 hours?

1. Do you wear makeup daily or do you reserve it for certain occasions only?
I wear makeup every day to go to the office, but in a fairly simple way. I especially try to camouflage my dark circles (I am a night owl but I take care of myself…) and to unify my complexion with a little BB cream and a veil of powder . I always end with a good coat of mascara , and that’s it! I reserve the more sustained makeup for special occasions, in the evening I like to dare the red lipstick, I find that it gives a crazy class.
2. What part of your face do you prefer and how do you enhance it?
I really like applying make-up to my eyes, but I have sensitive eyelids, they don’t tolerate makeup well in the long term. So I often content myself with applying a line of kohl along the upper lashes, blending to give a smoky effect, Sfumato pencils are also perfect for that. And I never skip the mascara step by working my lashes well to give them a nice curve.
3. Do you have a little makeup secret to share with us?
The secret is above all a good night’s sleep to eliminate all traces of fatigue and have a beautiful, luminous complexion. Because no matter how hard you try, if you haven’t slept the night before, your makeup will always be a little dull. Otherwise, a touch of highlighter placed at the top of the cheekbones can work wonders.
4. Which of the UNE manifesto commitments are you most sensitive to?
In our society, we are constantly looking for perfection and women do not accept their little flaws that they seek to camouflage at all costs. I love that the UNE brand sees makeup more as a natural beauty revealer rather than a way to transform and become another. I find this manifesto reassuring and uninhibiting. We can therefore be pretty without overdoing it as long as we use the right products.
5. What ecological gestures do you regularly take to preserve our planet?
Simple actions such as sorting my waste daily, limiting my consumption of water and electricity … I am not faultless, I continue to drive in the car and I sometimes take baths for example, but I force myself as much as possible to respect the environment around me as much as possible. Over time, all these little green gestures that were at the start of the efforts, have become automatic.
6. What is your favorite UNE product?
Without hesitation, the Sfumato S15 eye shadow , which beautifully warms brown eyes. I apply it directly to the finger, it blends easily to give a smoky effect that softens the eyes. It’s a safe bet for mournful mornings, with this neutral eyeshadow we are sure not to go wrong!
7. and which one should we all have in our bathroom?
The Universal Top 3 eyeshadow palette for the eyes is a very good basic that allows multiple possibilities, day and night. Neutral tones have the advantage of going with all skin tones.
8. The most beautiful definition of beauty according to you, it is?
Not easy to answer such a subjective question! We each have our ideal of beauty, for my part I would like to succeed in aging by accepting the years that pass without too much complex. Wanting to push back the signs of aging by going through cosmetic surgery is often much worse, for example, you just have to see the result in some celebrities that you barely recognize. By rereading myself I have the impression of being 70 years old!
