Quick FOTD for this windy sunny Saturday…as I am wrapping up semester grades at home, I thought it would be a great time to try my newly procured Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in 6.5 which is for light/medium skin with yellow undertones. It is designed to be long lasting, provide medium coverage and mimic the finish and look of natural skin which sounds amazing, but I needed to do a commitment-free test drive at home in case it doesn’t quite live up to its purported properties. Few things are worse than being stuck out all day with a foundation “fail!”
I applied Skin Base with my Sephora Airbrush (which is my favorite foundation brush, hands down) and found that it, even in direct sunlight, does indeed perfect skin while still looking natural and believable. The shade match is also spot on and in the same vein as other foundations I love (swatched HERE, HERE and HERE). I plan on using this product for a few more days before crafting a proper review but am happy with the results thus far.
