Inspired by the cult Asian market Beauty Balm creams, Skin Base Foundation is a brand new, refined formula unlike anything on the UK market. Easily blendable, it effortlessly creates a perfect complexion, and like the entire Illamasqua foundation range, is undetectable in a professional HD environment. Suitable for all skin types, it smoothes, softens and conditions your skin whilst providing natural, buildable coverage.
We've made every effort to ensure the colours on screen are as close as possible to the actual product colours. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee an exact colour match. Photographs and swatch colours will vary depending on your screen settings and resolution.
Skin Base is the ultimate ‘skin realism’ foundation and provides a medium coverage. For a flawless finish Illamasqua recommends to apply Skin Base with the Foundation Brush or Highlighter Brush for buffing and is versatile enough to apply with your fingers. It also works beautifully as a liquid concealer, highlighter and contour.

Great product but would love even more if there was a neutral shade by Hannah
(Posted on 23/10/2013)
I bought this product because of course Illamasqua is my favourite brand and this shade initially looked like it would be the perfect colour. Like everyone else I have tried most brands and found the lightest shades being either too pink or too yellow. Although I do think this is a little on the pink side, and have to mix it with another foundation to cancel out the redness, I would still re-buy as it makes my skin look so healthy and glowy and i always get complimemted. Coverage is great and long lasting, with a little bit going a long way. Perhaps a jar would be better so you don't miss out on the last bit of product due to it being a squeeze bottle (or you could just cut off the end like my grandma does!) I would also say this would suit any age as my mum and I both use it (ages 44 and 22) and looks the same on both skin textures.
Would highly recommend
Too light for my skin by Imogen

I got colour matched to number 2 and when it's on, it's still too light for my skin but I have to say that it has great coverage over the face and it covers all areas and stays in place all day....really happy with the coverage, just need it to be a darker shade
Wow! Just what I've been looking for! by Holly
(Posted on 24/08/2013)
I have looked everywhere for a foundation that matches my natural skin tone. I'm very pale, and have been told by plenty of other makeup counters and stores that my skin colour is far too light for any of their shades - until I went to Illamasqua! The girl at the counter was so professional and was more than happy to help me pick the right shade for me; I picked up SB02 and the Hydra Veil straight away and I'm so glad I did. Expensive, but so very worth it as a little dab gives you a lot of coverage. I went to the only store they have in Scotland, and will not regret purchasing this at all.
Awesome! by Emilia

Finally a foundation that is pink enough to match my skintone. The 02 is the perfect match!
Shade 2 by Gabby
(Posted on 20/05/2013)
I find Shade 2 good for my skin its perfectly light but its too pink. I have to mix it with the porcelain colour foundation from the natural colection to get it my colour also the set of foundation and primer you have is not to good either Please make a natural pale foundation. I'm very pale so its hard to find a good foundation. Btw i posted this by accident earlier on shade 4.
Best foundation ever by Em
(Posted on 02/05/2013)
I have looked everywhere for a foundation which compliments my skin tone. I used to use MAC but their lightest foundation still wasn't light enough. I then found Illamasqua and fell in love. The woman at the counter in Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield was really helpful and helped me with choosing the perfect shade. I'd recommend Illamasqua to anyone. Expensive but totally worth it.

This really is a necessity to my life. Lightweight with great coverage and perfect for pale gals! Honestly makes my skin look airbrushed!
Amazing by Lauren

This foundation is the perfect colour! I always find it so hard to get something that's pale enough for me. It feels lightweight , smooth and you can also build it up. Great value!
love it but does need a more neutral shade by miniholly
(Posted on 24/02/2013)
I love this foundation looks really nice on my combination skin and get so many compliments on how lovely my skin looks definitely the best foundation I have ever used, however I do agree there should be a neutral shade, I wear shade 2 as it is the best match as 3 is far too yellow but I think something with a neutral undertone would be a perfect match for me. Would love to see a 2.5 :)
perfect. by Amy

This is the perfect shade for me! I love my paleness but it hard finding a foundation that will match. The only thing is I don't think that it is worth £27 considering the size of the bottle.
Brilliant! by Rach

After months of foundation hunting, I finally found this: the perfect pale shade that doesn't look chalky, dirty or washed out. The pink-neutral base gives it a gorgeous fresh look. I have combination-oily skin and find this pretty good for my whole face. However, it is very pigmented, so the colour does tend to settle into dry/flaky areas, so make sure you moisturise/prime properly first. I use the Matt Primer on my t-zone and a generic moisturising primer on my cheeks and it balances out pretty well. Lasting power is also good-- all day wear is easily achieved with a light dusting of powder over oilier areas. I grabbed mine just after the price drop here in Australia, and it's definitely worth the price (for reference, it now sells for $41 AUD, comparably to L'Oreal or more expensive Revlon foundations).

This is a fairly good foundation for fair skinned people like myself, but it is not worth the price it asks for
We need pale neutral shade by Mimiko

This foundation misses pale neutral shade. Shade 02 is pale enough but it is pink based so I can't use it. :/
