I’m not sure there is anything quite as flattering as a flawless base when I’m trying to create a makeup look that feels both effortless and polished. I hate looking like I’m wearing anything on my skin, but rather I just want everything to be evened out,with a bit of a luminous glow. Not much to ask right?!?!
RMK’s Casual Solid Foundation is one of my favourite new finds, as I love everything about it from the slightly space-age silver compact to the flawless formulas hidden inside. When you first peek inside, the Casual Solid Foundation looks like any other, but the texture is an amazing solid, which can be applied easily in sheer flattering layers using my trusty Beauty Blender. On the left side of the palette is the foundation. It sits in that perfect position between sheer and blend-able, which means if my skin is looking good, I just need a quick swipe to even my colouring, and if I do have a break out I can add a little more for some fuller coverage.
The colour on the right side is a subtle highlighter, which is basically health in an easy to use compact form. When you’re choosing your foundation colour, you can decide on whether a silver or gold toned highlighter is best for your skin, and since I err on the warm side, I chose gold. After applying my foundation, I dab a little of the highlighter across my cheekbones, brow bones, down my nose and in the bit above my lip. It serves as giving your base more dimension than a regular foundation. I love the combination of the two formulas, and the highlighter really gives skin a natural looking glow, rather than being shiny, glittery or frosty.
Once I’ve applied my base, that’s it! I don’t even need to think about it for the rest of the day. It controls any shine, and even after a long day out and about, my base still looked fresh. As you can probably tell – I’m hooked!
