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?
