Many people have asked for a review of Kryolan Tv Paint Sticks and how to select colors, as it is a widely used foundation. This stick has been a part of my makeup collection since I could wear makeup. This stick is mainly used for party makeup when you need much coverage. A paint stick is a heavy-coverage product that can look cakey or patchy when applied. I’m not a pro, but I’ve been using this stick for quite a while, and I know how to use it. In today’s blog post, I will share my thoughts and tips on how to apply this foundation stick. Product Description
The Brand describes this product as a cream makeup stick with high coverage.
What Kryolan shade are you?
Kryolan TV Paint Sticks are available in 250 different shades. The vast selection of shades can help you find the right color, but it can also be confusing as they need names that match your skin tone. It is common to see makeup artists combine two or more shades to achieve the perfect match. You can combine two shades if you cannot find the ideal partner. This will require some practice, but you will be amazed at the results. You can also use some shades to contour, highlight, and correct color. You can get a rough idea of the most commonly used shades by looking at this chart.
They have both cool and warm undertones. As the number of W series increases, their shades get darker. F series increases as their yellow undertones increase. You can use this guide to find out what your undertones are. Find out how to determine your skin’s undertone.

Use Kryolan TV paint stick
Cleanse and scrub your skin to remove dirt and dead skin.
Moisturize your face according to your skin type, and allow it to absorb for a few minutes.
Use a primer for flawless, long-lasting application.
Apply the stick to different parts of your face.
You can also use your fingers, but a damp sponge is more effective.
Last but not least, dust the face with translucent Powder or setting Powder to prevent creasing. Kryolan Yellow loose powder is my favorite.
The packaging is a simple plastic twist-up stick. Blending the formula without moisturizing is difficult, especially for dry skin. It is excellent for special occasions but not for everyday use. I use it for concealing dark circles, blemishes, and red spots. It is not recommended to use this product daily because it requires oil-based makeup removers and proper cleansing. This can lead to breakouts, especially if you have an oily complexion.
The stick can be used on any skin type using the correct method. Use it on dry skin with a heavy moisturizer. If you have oily or combination skin, use a light moisturizer. Setting spray. It will last for almost the whole day. It will not oxidize, and the color will stay the same all day. The best way to apply it is with a damp sponge, as the foundation glides and spreads quickly. Others prefer to use the foundation with their fingers, which is a good option. However, brushes aren’t very helpful. This foundation will cover dark circles, red marks, or blemishes. It can crease because of its creamy texture. It would be best if you used a setting powder or translucent foundation. I love using Kryolan fine Powder To prevent creasing. Use it daily with very light coverage. Just use very little, and blend evenly. You can use the Dermacol makeup cover foundation. This product has a more creamy formula, but the pigmentation and coverage are still intense.
