Ace your Base!

This step by step routine will ensure your base makeup looks flawless every time...


Whether you’re a beauty beginner or makeup expert, this step by step post will help you achieve the most flawless base possible!


Prior to applying any makeup, it is important to ensure your skin is properly prepped. Primers are key to help you get that silky smooth base! The Makeup Revolution Liquid Powder Primer is a great option if you’re looking to reduce and minimise the appearance of pores & oily skin.

Following this, we go in with a foundation… Regardless of whether you want a simple hint of tint or a full on high-coverage beat, we’ve got you covered! For a more lightweight, fresh-faced finish, our Superdewy Tinted Moisturiser is a fantastic choice. Alternatively, for a full-coverage look, our Conceal & Define Foundation will quickly become your best friend!

Next up, we have one of the most versatile base products: concealer. Our Conceal & Define Concealer is an influencer favourite! It can be used to brighten skin, cover blemishes, even skin tone, create a base for eyeshadows or even used to contour! So, regardless of how you’d use your concealer, it is an absolute makeup must-have!

To add depth and dimension back into our skin, we contour and highlight. While makeup beginners often shy away from this, it is very simple. With our Fast Base Contour Sets, the darker shades are used to make areas of your face smaller, adding depth and the lighter shades are used to make areas of your face bigger and brighter.

Finally, set that base! Here, you can choose between two options: a fixing spray or a powder. If you want to achieve a dewy makeup look, the Revolution Hydrate & Fix Setting Spray is a necessity! If you’re looking to mattify and blur the skin, the famous Revolution Loose Baking Powder is key!

And just like that, you’ve aced your base... Add some mascara & lippy and you’re good to go!
