Every foundation needs the right canvas. Whether you use a tinted cream or a high-coverage foundation, it is always important to first unify and smoothen the surface of the skin.

Indispensable, yet often neglected. You should never forget to use a make-up base before applying your foundation. A make-up base will perfectly even your skin, mattify it and fill in fine lines, wrinkles and pores. With a make-up base, your skin will receive a fine, velvety film. Because it prepares your skin for overall make-up application, it also prolongs its duration and allows for a flawless appearance all day long. By evening your skin’s surface, it prevents the formation of unattractive smudges and does not allow your foundation to accumulate in fine lines and pores. If you use a make-up base, your foundation will be easier to apply. All Dermacol make-up bases can be combined with any type of foundation.


How to apply a make-up base:

A make-up base must be applied to thoroughly cleansed and moisturized skin. First, always cleanse your skin and eliminate any excessive oil with your favorite cleansing product. You can use a cleansing milk, a cleansing gel, oil or micellar lotion – it’s entirely up to you. After that, treat your skin with a regular day cream. The more thoroughly you apply your cream, the better your make-up will look. Apply the cream using gentle circular motions simulating a face massage. Then apply a make-up base. Only a few drops will go a long way. Using similar motions as when applying the cream, properly spread the make-up base all over your face with your fingertips.
