Airbase Foundation

I've been dying to play with Airbase for ages! I was at Illamasqua in Beak Street last week and the foundation and airbrushing unit were being demoed along with some of the lovely new Illamasqua colours.

I didn't get to play with the actual unit but seeing it being used was amazing. It's so small, light, quiet and portable! Not like the hefty, huge, noisy unit I had back in the day and was trained on!!! I'm seriously dying to get my hands on one!

I was a very lucky lady, though and was colour matched up with some of the Airbase foundation. Being the shockingly pale person I am I need to blend their lightest colour down with the new highlighter/white colour. It's a pretty quick process.

I use a nearly half and half combo of these two. It's a really lovely match and I don't need to use much. My skin is absolutely hating me at the moment and I'm suffering from the breakout from hell. The Airbase foundation has been layering up really well in those spots and I've not been using a separate concealer. I'm really pleased with the results and the lasting power is terrific. I have set it in this pic with a little powder but that's mainly because of my breakout.

I was given the Airbase foundation brush to apply these with but I found that it pilled off over my nose. That's never happened to me before! I rarely recommend this but using my fingers has been the best way to put this foundation on.

This is definitely a foundation I'll keep on wearing! Each foundation is £32.95. A little bit of this goes a long way. Especially if you're using the airbrushing unit. You can find it online at
