Base and Foundation

When it comes to professional base and foundation products, we've got you covered - literally! Creating that perfect canvas for applying other products is so important, so don't skimp when it comes to quality. From colour correcting concealers to high coverage, makeup artist-grade foundations, you're sure to find whatever you're after in our MUA Shop! We've laid out the steps you'll need to create a stunning, lasting base.

Primer

 

Start off your makeup application with a primer from Napoleon Perdis or Becca to help smooth out skin and allow other products to glide on effortlessly. If you've never primed before, don't be scared - although once a step only the pros ever used, it's filtered down into mainstream makeup application in the last ten or so years, and now we can't live without it! It's the easiest and most effective way of transforming your skin into a blank canvas ready for the rest of your products.

Primers are now designed to suit a variety of skin types and concerns, so take a minute to browse through our MUA Shop and find the perfect primer for your routine. If you're dry, go for something that's hydrating - injecting moisture back into the skin is a vital step in establishing a balanced base, as it'll ensure your foundation and so on don't stick to any dry or irritated patches. Say you're oily - we've got some of the most mattifying products ever available in the MUA Shop, with brands from Mirenesse through to Jane Iredale now offering oil-control primers. Girls and guys on the go will also love the priming sprays from Skindinavia - cut out a little time from your morning routine whilst still ensuring your makeup stays all day long! 

Concealer

Next, make colour correcting a breeze with concealers from the likes of Ofra and Becca. Simply apply prior to your foundation and blend out, watching redness and pigmentation issues dissipate and more balanced skin shine through. Colour correcting newbies will be able to learn on the job with ease - these products, despite looking a little daunting, are incredibly simple to use daily!

We colour correct to help even out redness, dark circles, spots and other imperfections on the face you may not want interrupting the way your foundation applies. Green products, for instance, help to conceal and correct redness in the skin. Apply this green-tinted concealer to any red areas and watch the pigment neutralise them. Although you may look a little odd for a few seconds, simply blend out with a brush, sponge or fingers to lessen the effect if need be.

Don't worry, you aren't going to have to go about your day with a greenish tinge all over your face - simply apply foundation over the top and watch a beautiful base emerge, free of redness. Irritated spots aren't the only thing you can cover, either. Use purple to neutralise yellow tones and red or orange to combat greens and blues. We love a good orange-toned concealer under the eyes to make us look brighter and more awake. Dark circles be gone! 

Foundation

Cover your colour correction with a foundation from one of our high quality brands to even everything out. Whether you want to achieve a natural, glowy look with products from Curtis Collection, or Kryolan's super-full coverage TV Paint Sticks are more your speed, there's definitely a foundation for you in the MUA Shop. 

Foundation is the most important step in creating that flawless base, but everyone's different. Finding the perfect foundation for you isn't just about colour matching, as all products now have different properties targeted at various concerns. Make sure to take skin type, age and undertones into consideration before hitting that 'add to cart' button! We guarantee your skin type will be catered to in our MUA Shop. With everything from hydrating foundations that help inject moisture into the skin whilst covering, through to 'stay all day,' super-matte products, there's something for all the makeup junkies out there. 

Setting Powder/Spray

 

Don't forget to set! Shop setting sprays and powders from Gerard Cosmetics, L.A. Girl and more to help finish off that flawless base. After all, we don't want all our hard work slipping and sliding around the face after just a few hours out in the elements. As the pros know, the key to beautiful-looking makeup is ensuring it doesn't budge and succumb to sweat or wear throughout the day. 

There are a few tried and tested ways we love to set our makeup. Sprays are a popular choice as they make life incredibly easy and are really effective. Spritz a little bit of setting spray over the entire face and fan the area with your hands to help it dry quickly, locking in the makeup as it looks in that moment. This will help your products to stay put, guaranteeing that coverage lasts longer and colours appear brighter. Plus, it also helps combat that powdery look your skin may take on after applying blush and other powder-based products! 

You've also got the option of a setting powder, which will be your new best friend if your skin is oily or combination. Let your setting powder absorb any excess oil in the skin by applying it in the T-zone, or all over the face if you're after a really locked-in look. You've got the option of tinted or totally translucent powders, so pick your best bet and start setting!
