What is Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation
Anyone who’s ever tried to find the perfect foundation knows it’s not an easy task. Finding the right color, tone, and formula can take hours, sometimes even days! And then when you do find something that works, you’re left wondering if it’ll be around next season. So why not get all the benefits of your best foundation and your moisturizer, too? Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation was created with this exact idea in mind!
It's super smooth
This is probably one of my favorite features. It's so smooth that I feel like I'm applying my makeup to an airbrushed canvas. And it doesn't get cakey or look chalky at all. You can build it up or apply a light layer and both options will look flawless. So if you're afraid that with a stick foundation you'll end up looking caked in makeup, fear not!
With Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick foundation cream, the application is as easy as one swipe and done. Of course, if you're going for full coverage (because let's be honest – sometimes that's what we all want) then by all means apply more liberally to areas where you need extra coverage!
It's super blendable
This is hands down one of my favorite makeup products from Faces Canada. The foundation makeup glides on like butter and blends effortlessly into your skin, providing a medium to full coverage without looking cakey or heavy. It's easy to use for both everyday wear and special occasions, too!
When applying I make sure to blend right after applying to avoid any streaking, then again later when I want everything blended evenly with no visible lines or marks. It truly feels as if you're wearing nothing but your skin with absolutely zero effort. And you can't beat that!
This foundation has a creamy formula that glides on effortlessly and stays put for up to 24 hours. Since it's been formulated with exclusive Faces Canada Technology, it resists oil, fading, and creasing while keeping your skin looking flawless all day long.
One tester found that she didn't have to reapply powder throughout an entire day at work because her face still looked fresh by the end of her shift. She added I am amazed at how my skin looks naturally perfect when I use Maybelline New York's UltimePro Foundation. And another user raved, This foundation has great coverage but is light enough not to look caked on.
With just one swipe, Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation delivers serious coverage while instantly smoothing, brightening, and improving your skin's overall appearance. It's easily customizable, too.
Simply tap a second layer on problem areas like under-eye circles or blemishes. And because it's made with advanced pigments designed to look natural on any skin tone and work with all skin foundation types—including sensitive—it truly is your go-to foundation stick for every day of your life. But what makes Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation so revolutionary? It's been formulated to address everything that can go wrong with makeup application.
Easy for sensitive skin
If you have sensitive skin, you know how important it is to apply foundation with a clean brush. Otherwise, your makeup may cause a breakout of pimples. When using Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation, remember to use an ample amount and let it sit for a few minutes before using your brush so that any fragrance in the formula evaporates and doesn't irritate your skin.
This foundation also contains optical-brightening pigments to help hide dark spots and even out discoloration as well as SPF 30, which protects from sun damage during wear.
Why use Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation
Foundation has been around since the beginning of makeup as we know it. For many people, it can be an easy way to add color and coverage to their face with minimal effort, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy to find the right one for your skin type and desired coverage. In this article, we’ll break down why you should try BlendFinity Stick Foundation from our line of Ultime Pro products.
Keep your skin hydrated
Hydrated skin is softer, smoother, and even more radiant. When your skin is well-hydrated, it plumps up with life-giving moisture that makes wrinkles disappear. Using a foundation stick can help you keep your skin hydrated since it glides on smoothly and never cakes or creases around your fine lines. It's perfect for achieving a fresh, natural finish that lasts all day long!
With all of these benefits in mind—not to mention its lightweight texture and quick application—it’s no wonder so many women are switching over to foundation sticks! Why not give one a try today?
No need to apply a primer
Over time, primers can build up on your skin, leading to clogged pores and uneven foundation application. And even if you aren’t already noticing any of these issues, it's good to know that a primer is no substitute for a moisturizer. Using a foundation primer first can dehydrate your skin, causing a dewy foundation to sit unevenly on top.
To ensure you have smooth and hydrated skin from head to toe, apply moisturizer all over before starting your makeup routine. Next, apply foundation directly onto clean skin in small amounts and blend evenly with either a makeup sponge or brush until desired coverage is achieved. Finish with setting powder (or blush/bronzer) for a flawless look that lasts all day long!
Coverage remains consistent from start to finish
Starting with a blend of cream and powder in a proprietary formula, it will cover even your biggest skin concerns from fine lines to dark circles. Then, you can go from light to full coverage just by rolling more product onto your brush. It's a total game-changer in makeup application.

No makeup bags needed: This best-selling foundation stick gives you high-coverage looks that fit right into your purse or travel bag!
You don’t have to touch up
This is true to its name—once you’ve blended in your stick foundation, you don't have to touch it up again. A compactor liquid foundation may not apply as uniformly or look as smooth and flawless over time. By using a stick foundation, you won't have to deal with excess oil buildup on your face either.
The matte finish created by using a silicone-based foundation will also hold up well during summer heatwaves. And if you're worried about having to touch up too often, try going for an oil-free formula, which acts as a primer in that it fills fine lines and pores before applying makeup over the top of it.
So many shades available (55!)
You can find a shade to match your complexion, whatever it may be. There are various levels of depth and tones so there is truly something for everyone. The foundation will blend into your skin flawlessly and make it look natural instead of looking caked on. This product not only covers imperfections but also makes sure that your skin looks flawless as well. And if you want extra coverage, simply apply a second layer.
Versatile application options
Makeup artists and beauty bloggers love using Pro BlendStick to achieve an airbrushed look. Many love how it can be used to cover up dark circles, under-eye bags, and facial redness.
It's a long-lasting option that gives you full coverage on your face that lasts all day long with no smudges or smears. If you're someone who doesn't like to spend hours in front of a mirror every morning getting ready for work, then a stick foundation is definitely for you. It's even great for touch-ups throughout your day as well!
Because it's oil-free, our stick foundation offers light coverage that lasts up to 24 hours. It also stays put on your skin as you move around during your day, resisting sweat and humidity from workouts and busy days. You can apply it with confidence knowing that it won't fade or slide around once you've finished applying.
Plus, our non-comedogenic formula doesn't clog pores so breakouts are a thing of the past. With all these benefits in mind, you'll want to wear our foundation every day for a natural look that lets your skin shine through with each passing hour!
Sheer finish that looks natural and comfortable
Makeup in stick form is compact and convenient to carry with you. Our foundation stick is lightweight, soft, and easy to apply. The soft texture gives you a flawless look that feels comfortable on your skin. So whether you're out and about running errands or on a long day of meetings, you can still look your best without feeling weighed down by makeup. And because it's so natural-looking, no one will know you're wearing foundation unless you tell them!
How is Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation different from the regular foundation?
For starters, it’s way more portable. Unlike regular foundations, Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation comes in a tube. This means that you can take it with you everywhere—and apply it quickly without hassle. It also doesn't require any additional brushes or applicators—just your fingers! If you need to refresh your look on the go, just pull out your Tube Foundation and blend away!
How to use Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation
This foundation is suitable for women who want a sheer to medium coverage while not worrying about their makeup drying out by mid-day. The stick foundation stays on longer and has intense hydration with high SPF and mattifying coverage, making it perfect for summer or year-round use. With Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation's sleek packaging, there is no need to carry separate moisturizer, primer, or high SPF sunscreen.
How to choose foundation according to your skin type
Finding the right foundation can be an arduous task, especially if you have skin that’s on the sensitive side. Your options seem endless: mineral foundation, tinted moisturizer, BB cream, liquid or cream foundation, or even what seems like the impossible – flawless coverage from your favorite cosmetics brand.
With so many choices out there, how do you know which one will work best for your unique complexion? The good news is that choosing a foundation doesn't have to be complicated. Here are three simple tips to help you find just the right type of foundation for your skin type!
Fair skin is characterized by a pale tone, which means that any flaws stand out clearly. A fair-skinned person tends to burn rather than tan and may flush easily. If you have fair skin, opt for a light-colored foundation with golden or yellow undertones to complement your skin tone. Avoid foundations with red undertones since they will counteract your natural coloring and make you look ashen.
Many makeup artists recommend powder foundation over liquid because it blends more naturally with a foundation for dry skin. With all types of foundation, try not to go overboard--it's better to use less foundation and blend well than use too much product that clumps on your face. Make sure you set it with a dusting of powder so it stays in place all day long.
If you have medium skin, which is neither light nor dark, you’re in luck because most foundations will look great on you. If you fall into that category, start your shopping by finding a salesperson who is willing to work with you. You want someone who will ask questions and help figure out what your best foundation options are. It’s also smart to bring in a picture of yourself so they can see how your skin normally looks under certain lighting conditions.
A person with a tan/olive complexion often has dark hair and green or brown eyes. Olive skin tones often need more coverage than others and, therefore, foundations that offer a medium to full coverage tend to be best suited for them.
Olive complexions typically have yellow undertones, which is another reason it's important to buy a foundation that is made specifically for people with darker skin colors. That way you can be sure it will conceal your skin imperfections and give you even coverage over your entire face without looking too light or orange. A popular brand of foundations designed specifically for women with olive complexions is NARS because they offer an impressive selection of colors, including several shades of brown and orange.
Women with darker complexions typically have larger pores and thicker skin, which means their skin may require a heavier moisturizer or foundation. They should also opt for sheer coverage foundations to avoid looking cakey or caked on. Women with medium-to-dark complexions look best in warm tones, so neutral shades of beige are ideal. When choosing your foundation, stick to matte formulas and try not to go above a shade lighter than your natural color.
How to properly prep your face for foundation?
To ensure that your foundation looks its best and lasts, you'll want to make sure your skin is properly prepped before application. To do so, start by gently exfoliating your face with a soft cloth or scrub on non-foundation days. You can also use an oil-based cleanser for extra hydration and to remove any makeup. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel.
These steps help create a clean canvas for foundation application and will prevent imperfections from peeking through once you've applied it. For foundation, choose one in your shade range; if you're still unsure which undertone your skin has, ask for help from an employee at a beauty store.
Tools to apply Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation flawlessly
Your face is your calling card, and it’s important to present the best possible version of yourself when you are in public. However, it can be hard to get your makeup just right all the time, especially if you are in a rush or if you don’t have all of the necessary tools at hand. This section will give you some recommendations on which tools will help you apply your favorite Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation seamlessly every time you wear it!
#1: A non-slip pad
I have a number of these on my vanity and they’re all different shapes, sizes, and colors. What they have in common is that they all help keep my makeup brushes or beauty tools in place while I'm applying my makeup. My brush never slips off my pad while I'm working on one side of my face so that when I get to apply to another part of my face, it makes application quicker and more controlled! This helps me speed up application time (yes!).
#2: A clean makeup brush
It's hard to blend makeup well on your face if you're using dirty tools. Make sure all of your brushes are clean before use by simply wiping them down with a baby shampoo or brush cleaner, then pat them dry and allow them to air-dry overnight. For obvious reasons, don't try applying a liquid foundation on top of wet brushes!
No matter how careful you are, there's just no way for you or anyone else in your household (that you can vouch for) not to share bacteria between brushes. Everyone must use their brush; those who wear contacts must wash their hands thoroughly before touching their face or eyes so they don't spread germs from another part of their body onto yours.
#3: A damp makeup sponge
Before you apply, dampen your foundation sponge in a cup of water. This trick helps your foundation glide on smoothly and gives a more airbrushed finish. The better texture also means less product will be needed to get full coverage! We recommend Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
#4: The right lighting
You can use any type of lighting to apply your foundation best—whether it's overhead, natural, or candlelight, as long as it's adequate. While you shouldn't look directly into a mirror in dim lighting conditions, you don't want your lighting too bright either.
You'll want just enough light so that you can see what you're doing without shadows or glare. Overhead lights are generally best since they offer optimal brightness and evenness. It's also best if they're on a dimmer switch so that you can lower them when applying makeup in low-lit rooms or at night.
#5: Stay hydrated throughout the day
You may not realize it, but dehydration can affect your skin just as much as humidity or extreme temperatures. Dehydration makes your skin appear puffy and cracked, and it also increases your skin’s sensitivity to environmental irritants.
A good tip is to always carry a bottle of water with you (you can stash one in your purse or car) so that you can rehydrate throughout the day. If you don't like plain water, try adding sliced cucumbers, lemons, or limes. Drinking plenty of water also has other health benefits, including detoxifying your body by keeping it well-hydrated.
Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation tips for beginners
If you're new to the world of makeup, you might be intimidated by how much there is to learn about it. The truth is that there are thousands of products out there, each with its use and technique. However, as long as you find one or two products that work best for your skin type and features, it's not that hard to get started with makeup at all! If you're just getting started with the Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation from FACES CANADA and want some quick tips on how to use it, read on for 5 great tips for beginners.
1) Choose your shade
First, choose your shade. The best way to do that is by visiting a store and trying on different shades of foundation with a foundation with concealer or dabbing samples onto your jawline or neck; if you don't have access to those things, there are many online resources like YouTube tutorials that can help you find your perfect match. It's all about trial and error—if at first, you don't succeed, try again! If you get home and discover that your color choice was off, remember that FACES CANADA accepts returns within 60 days for most products. You're always welcome to take it back to try another shade.
2) Prep skin
Properly moisturizing your skin before applying foundation is key to making sure it goes on smoothly. Using a hydrating face primer will help enhance and lock in moisture. You can also prep skin by using a toner, which removes dead skin cells that can make your foundation look blotchy if left on.
Spritz your favorite toner onto a cotton ball and swipe over clean, dry skin after you've applied moisturizer but before you add makeup. Using an exfoliating sponge will also help ensure smooth coverage without any flakiness or uneven patches: It just creates an even canvas for your foundation to lay flat against.
3) Focus on your under-eye area
The skin around your eyes is thinner than other areas of your face, so it's extra important to choose an eye cream that will hydrate and protect. Use a moisturizer every morning and evening on top of an SPF to keep the skin around your eyes hydrated and well protected from UV rays, which cause discoloration.
If you have crow’s feet or dark circles, look for a formula that contains caffeine or soy proteins because they work as natural fillers to plump up wrinkles and fine lines. The best eye creams are typically sold in jars because they typically have a thicker consistency that stays put around your eyes without running down your face while you apply makeup.
4) Workaround your natural features
If you have small features (like me), you’ll want to look for ways to minimize them. For example, if your lips are on the smaller side, opt for a shade lighter than your natural lip color and apply it lightly all over.
Then add a rosy hue in the center of your bottom lip—the thinner top and bottom will blend right in. If you have larger features, like my co-worker pictured above, try playing them up by applying blush on both sides of your cheeks or all over if you have a larger face shape.
5) Use it to touch up throughout the day
An advantage of using a foundation stick is that you can carry it in your purse and use it throughout the day to touch up your face. When we're not putting on a full face of makeup every morning, we often don't reapply our foundation throughout the day.
Using a foundation stick allows you to keep your skin looking even and smooth all day long. This way, if you feel like your make-up isn't lasting as long as it used to or that you're starting to look dull in the evening, you can apply some more at work or school and refresh!
Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation tips and tricks
The Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation is an ultra-luxe foundation stick with a creamy formula that provides buildable coverage. The best part? It comes in several shades that are all-inclusive, so you’re sure to find your perfect match! Use these tips and tricks to get the most out of your Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation.
1) Soften your skin
We may not always realize it, but we make our skin work a lot harder than necessary by washing off all of its natural oils when we shower. If you have dry skin, it’s important to keep those natural oils on your face as much as possible.
We tend to think of having oily skin as a bad thing, but actually, that's how our skins protect us from environmental factors—it creates a layer between us and things like pollution or smog so that they don't affect our delicate facial tissue. To get softer skin, we need to replace those natural oils by using moisturizers daily. Aim for one oily skin foundation with SPF 15 or higher if you plan on being outside during daylight hours.
2) Warm up your face
Are you a serious foundation wearer? Did you know that applying your base before getting dressed can help with skincare? This tip might sound counterintuitive, but waiting until after you've put on lotion will allow your moisturizer to soak into your skin. Use a foundation brush to apply one layer of stick foundation.
Pat, it into place using clean fingers or a sponge before fully blending it out. The finished look will be seamless, even, and radiant—as if you applied it in front of a mirror! Instead of choosing between high-maintenance makeup routines like contouring and strobing, just focus on hydration instead. Your complexion will glow regardless because healthy skin tends to reflect light more effectively than dry or flaky patches do.
3) Use multiple shades to create a flawless complexion
Our bodies come in all shapes and sizes, which means our complexions aren’t created equal. A one-shade-fits-all foundation isn’t going to work as well as finding a foundation that matches your natural coloring—and it can often look noticeably fake.
You’ll never get a flawless finish when you don’t match your foundation shade with your neck, so invest in a few different shades of liquid or stick foundations. Apply each one to different areas of your face (think about how makeup works on other people: It usually starts with lighter colors on their cheeks before building up to darker shades on their chins). Then, use that color guide to choose which shade(s) best suits you.
4) Use a blending sponge
The key to applying foundation liquid is blending. You can't just slap on some foundation and expect a flawless look; you have to blend it out so that it looks natural. And if you're like me, you use your fingers to do so. However, if you use your fingers, it's going to streak and look very unnatural! Instead, opt for a blender sponge.
Use that instead of your fingertips (and don't forget - add primer!). The sponge does not absorb as much product as your fingertips do - meaning less waste! In addition to making sure it blends well with other products (like your skin), the foundation blender also gives off an airbrushed finish without looking artificial or plastic.
5) Add concealer where needed
First off, before applying foundation HD or concealer, use a moisturizer or primer on your face. It will help to smooth out skin, giving you a nice base to work with that’s free of lines and pore issues. Then, once you have your foundation on, give it time to dry before adding concealer.
Be sure to avoid applying your concealer directly over the areas where you put foundation – they should be slightly offset from each other so that they don't muddy when blended. One common mistake people make is using too much concealer; stick with just a dab to keep from looking cakey. Lightly patting it in rather than swiping can also help avoid getting too much product on your face.
Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation hacks
Wearing a full coverage foundation is easier than ever with the new Pro Blendfinity Faces Canada Stick Foundation. Available in 16 shades, Pro BlendFinity sticks are designed to flawlessly match your skin tone and blend easily over cheeks, eyes, forehead, lips, or anywhere else you want to apply it. You can use a brush or fingers to apply stick foundation but its thin consistency means it can also be applied directly from its tube.
We found that sticking our finger into each shade's cap helped us achieve an accurate match without picking up too much product – just enough to cover two or three small blemishes on our face! We also found that mixing two shades was another simple way to customize coverage, without having to buy more makeup.
How to remove Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation properly
Foundation removal is one of the least favorite steps in makeup application, but it’s also one of the most necessary (and sometimes problematic). Whether you applied the foundation with your fingers or with a brush, you can bet there’s going to be some leftover foundation that needs to be cleaned up. Follow these steps to properly remove Ultime Pro BlendFinity Stick Foundation from your face and prepare your skin for the next step in your makeup routine.
Step 1 – Gently Wipe Away Excess
Excess foundation powder can cake onto the skin, making it impossible for the product to absorb properly. To begin, gently swipe a clean makeup cloth or cotton ball over your face in an upward motion from your jawline. While most of us prefer cotton balls because they're quick and easy, experts say that you should use anything soft, like cotton or even pads meant for removing nail polish.
If you don't have either on hand, you can also use an oil-free liquid remover with no alcohol (or witch hazel). If you choose that option, make sure it has no alcohol as the alcohol evaporates quickly and will leave behind any oils left on your skin. These oils can block pores and ruin your complexion.
Step 2 – Use Wet Cotton Pad
Dip the cotton pad into warm water and wipe it over your face, moving in circular motions. This will loosen up any remaining foundation in hard-to-reach places, such as around your hairline and under your eyes. Now, it's time to apply some pressure.
Place one hand on top of your head and push down firmly—you want to achieve enough downward pressure that you feel like you’re working out at home (don’t worry, you won’t injure yourself), but nothing more than that. Use your other hand on your chin and keep swiping with the wet cotton pad until there is no trace of foundation left on your skin. Your hands will get messy—but don’t let that stop you!
Step 3 – Wipe Away Remaining Product
To wipe away any remaining foundation, use either a makeup remover wipe or baby oil. Either will remove any excess foundation. This is one of those things that’s worth doing right at home so you don’t look like you have something on your face when you go out later (and nobody will know why). For example, one small dollop of FACES CANADA FIT Me Matte + Poreless liquid foundation costs $8.49 and has 1 fl oz of product. If we subtract .25 oz from what was wasted in the application, then that comes out to be about $2 per ounce. It's not terrible but it's also not great!
What is the quantity of stick foundation?
Use just enough so that you can build coverage over one area of your face. Remember, since it’s designed to give you full coverage, too much will make your skin look mask-like and feel heavy. Using too much foundation is often why it ends up caked in your pores and creases.
Is it easily blendable?
One of our favorite features of the FACES CANADA foundation is that it’s extremely blendable. This means that it doesn't just sit on top of your skin; it melts into it, making it seem like you aren't wearing anything at all. If yours isn't blending easily, take a clean tissue and dip it in some water (or another form of moisture). Then blot your foundation onto the tissue until you can no longer see it.
Is it foundation waterproof?
This foundation is waterproof and sweat-proof, so even if you work out hard, it will not leave your face oily. You can touch up whenever without worrying about that uncomfortable feeling of caked-on makeup, but be sure to wash your hands before applying it again so you don’t transfer bacteria onto your skin. This product also prevents breakouts due to its non-comedogenic formula. No need for acne medicine in addition!
Is it safe for pregnant women?
Since it doesn’t have any ingredients that can harm pregnant women, it is safe for pregnant women. It has no negative side effects on pregnancy and will not affect your unborn child.
