The Perfect Base
Everything you need to know to flawlessly apply your base.
Our complete guide to the perfect base includes all of our base and skincare modules to teach you how to create flawless looking skin. Our resident scientist and skincare expert, Michelle Wang, starts by helping you choose the right skincare and shares how different ingredients can interact with your makeup.
We then cover primer and foundation with lessons about picking the right products for your skin and demonstrating how to flawlessly apply them. Our concealing and colour correction module will teach you how to apply the principles of colour theory to hide unwanted blemishes and pigmentation on your skin.
You'll also get access to our in-depth sculpting module where you'll learn about face shapes and how best to use contouring and highlighting techniques to enhance your bone structure.
And finally, we finish with the powder module, with lessons demonstrating different techniques to set your base for a long lasting finish. With over 4 hours of video content and our our comprehensive digital workbook, you will learn a lot from this course!
