Illamaqua Skin Base Is one of the latest highly talked about foundations to hit the beauty market. They say the inspiration behind the foundation was the new cult of beauty balms, which originated in Asia.
Illmasqua say it is “The Ultimate ‘Skin Realism’ Foundation” and rightly so the foundation is smooth creamy and high in pigment, a little bit real does go along. Way it applies to the skin like a balm and melts and smooths in to create undetectable skin coverage. Illamasqa describe the foundation as
“refined formula unlike anything on the UK market. Easily blendable, it effortlessly creates a perfect complexion, and like the entire Illamasqua foundation range, is undetectable in a professional HD environment. Suitable for all skin types, it smoothes, softens and conditions your skin whilst providing natural, buildable coverage. ”
Although the foundation lives up to its description, I would say its more of a medium to full coverage foundation, you can use a buffing brush and nice moisturizer to sheer it down and create a beautiful editorial finish.The foundation comes in 26 shades which is perfect for any skin tone.
Top Tip: make sure the skin is hydrated and use with a beauty blender for the best results.
