When a brand listens to customer feedback and does something about it, it makes me want to shout ‘hurrah!’ Illamasqua’s cult Skin Base foundations are lusted upon by nearly every beauty blogger, providing great coverage and a flawless finish, but the range is still limited. Although there are 25 different shades to choose from, it’s still been hard for some skintones to get the perfect match – until now. Illamasqua’s Skin Base Mixers are now available from their stores and counters, providing a hit of colour to ensure you come away with the most perfect match you can possibly achieve. Available in four different shades (chocolate, amber, terracotta and white,) the good news is that they’re completely complimentary when you buy any Skin Base Liquid. There’s no additional charge at all, providing that Illamasqua are truly committed to helping us look our best.
The little tubes of colour are incredibly pigmented, needing only the
smallest amount to adjust the shade of your Skin Base. (For best
results, blend on the hand with a foundation brush and adding a little
colour at a time.) Chocolate adds a hint of brown, amber a touch of
warmth, teracotta works well with olive complexions and the white mix
helps to make the bases even more pale. You can also use these handy
tools as blush, highlighter or bronzer, dabbing the formula over the top
of foundation to where you need it most. These really do help Skin
Base fans to be more creative and ensure their finished look is exactly
what they’re after.
It’s easy to get carried away, so
these definitely come with a word of warning: use the tiniest amount
humanly possible and build the colour from there! You’ll be able to
discuss your specific needs with an Illamasqua assistant, as well as
getting top tips on how to use the Skin Base Mixers, so there’s no
excuse not for getting the most perfect foundation colour you’ve ever
experienced. This is such a simple, yet brilliant, idea that I can see
bringing Illamasqua into a new era of makeup; I have high hopes that
these great little tubes will become retail products in their own right
within a year. Are you excited about Illamasqua’s Skin Base Mixers?
Skin Base is available online and via counters priced £32.00. The new ‘mixers’ are completely free of charge with a Skin Base purchase.
