HOW DO I ACHIEVE THE GLOWY-LOOKING SKIN I SEE IN MAGAZINES AND ON RUNWAYS?
For a radiant, greaseless glow, apply HÅKANSSON moisturizer
to your clean face. Then, dab a few drops of HÅKANSSON oil
to the crest of your cheekbones – and blend for a natural, lit-from-within glow. To achieve an even more polished look, apply HÅKANSSON colors
to unify skin tone, hide imperfections and enhance your features. Then, finish with a soft touch of HÅKANSSON Powder
DO THE PRODUCTS CONTAIN AN SPF?
No, they don't – quite simply because the SPF ingredient can effect the natural blending of color on the skin. And because necessary SPF levels vary from woman to woman. However, you can apply a thin layer of SPF over The Moisturizer
HOW DO I USE THE VITAMIN SPRAYS?
Hold the spray bottle about 30 cm from face and mist 4-5 times. Use the spray before applying The Moisturizer
and after applying makeup to "fix" the makeup, and during the day as an instant skin-refresher. Also, replace your heavy night cream with the vitamin spray to let skin recuperate its natural oils during the night – without "drowning" your skin or clogging your pores.
CAN I USE THE COLORS ON SKIN, CHEEKS, EYES AND LIPS?
The collection of colors
is specially created to multi-task – naturally enhancing cheeks, eyes and lips. In doing so, you are assured a naturally unified look. They are made of natural waxes that nourish the skin and are safe for use on the eyes.
WHY ARE THE COLORS A CREAM RATHER THAN A POWDER?
Unlike traditional powder formulas, the colors
unique texture become one with the skin, they just don't sit on the skin. So they never settle into facial lines, but instead move with the skin so the look stays natural and flawless. The high content of pigments promotes longer wear and the unique formula contains special minerals that nourish the skin.
HOW DO I GET THE PERFECT BLUSH COLOR FOR ME?
The color compact 7+8
works for everyone who wants a fresh natural looking glow. Blending the colors allows you to self-create the perfect shade for your skin and your mood. Apply with fingertips high on the middle of the cheek, and blend outwards and inwards.
WHAT DO I DO WITH THE COLORS NO 9+10 THAT ARE SO PALE?
These colors were originally created for the Asian woman – often they like a somewhat paler color with flushed cheeks. However, we have discovered that the colors are ideal for creating enhancing highlights on all skins – and the pink pale color is great for 60's inspired lips. Also, apply either of the colors all over eyelid for a fresh look.
WHY IS THE POWDER LOOSE AND NOT PRESSED?
Loose powder is actually the preference of professional make-up artists because most traditional pressed powders contain oil that can look heavy and clog pores. HÅKANSSON The Powder
is ultra-finely milled to impart a naturally flawless finish and absorb excess oils– without ever appearing cakey.
WHY DOES THE POWDER APPEAR YELLOW?
The universally enhancing shade of Håkansson powder is golden in appearance because most skins contain yellow undertones. The powder shade has been created to impart a warm subtle glow to all skin tones without looking fake or over-flushed from powders that are overly red or pinkish.
DO I APPLY THE COLORS BEFORE THE POWDER?
Yes, the colors should be applied after The Moisturizer
and before the powder so that they can be blended directly with the skin. Håkansson moisturizer is created to blend flawlessly with the colors.
WHY IS THE SCENT A LOTION AND NOT A LIQUID THAT YOU SPRAY ON?
Unlike traditional fragrances, the unique form of the scent has been specially created without alcohol for subtle yet lasting dispersion of the scent. The unique form nourishes and softens skin and won't dry as alcohol fragrances can, and allows for precise application – without lingering unwantedly on clothes. A fresh, personal signature of unspoiled beauty. The convenient go-anywhere plastic bottle is unbreakable.
MY SKIN IS VERY DRY AND SENSITIVE. WHAT DO I DO?
Apply the moisturizer all over the skin. Apply a few drops of the oil
around extra dry areas. As a treatment, apply the oil
all over the face over night.
MY SKIN IS CHANGING. HOW CAN I COMBAT WRINKLES?
The oil and the moisturizer contains anti-aging ingredients.
HOW DO I ACHIEVE A HEALTHY SUN-KISSED GLOW?

(alone or custom-mixed) to cheekbones, tip of nose, chin and forehead – and blend for a naturally bronzed look.
HOW DO I HIDE MY SKIN'S TROUBLE SPOTS?
For fair to medium skin tones, use Håkansson colors 1+2
alone or mix to create the perfect match for your skin tone. For medium to darker skin tones, use Håkansson colors 3+4
alone or mix to create the perfect match for your skin tone. Technique: Dab lightly over trouble spot and blend.
MY SKIN NEEDS MOISTURE – BUT NOT OIL. WHAT DO I DO?
To give your oily yet thirsty skin some fresh, no-oil nourishment, spray the vitamin spray on the face – in your choice of "flavor."
