Today I’d like to tell you a bit about my new go-to makeup product, what I consider to be the cosmetic holy of holies, the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation.
This medium coverage foundation is amazingly lightweight and provides me with just the right coverage, leaving my skin looking perfectly luminous post-application. The beauty of this product is that it contains vitamin C, which helps to rejuvenate and treat skin that has been exposed to UV ray damage, and vitamin E, which is known for its hydrating and moisturising properties. With 26 shades to choose from, there’s bound to be a colour to suit your skin tone.
I use this foundation on all of my clients and have only received positive feedback since switching to it. When a client does request heavier coverage, I simply build up this medium coverage foundation as per my clients’ requests. However, if it’s lighter coverage that you’re after, I’d suggest mixing it into a moisturiser to create your own BB cream style tinted moisturiser. This will give you a nice dewy, fresh faced finish.

On to skin types, because it’s really important to pick the right foundation for your type. If you have naturally oily skin, I’d suggest using the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation over a matte primer. If you have naturally dry skin, you should opt for something that will moisturise your skin, such as the Illamasqua Satin Primer. You can probably tell how much I love and put my trust in this brand, right?
