Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector.

21.3.16



Remember when clown contouring was the next big thing? Well after reading plenty an article about it, little old me ordered the Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector, swiftly put it away ‘to photograph’ and forgot about it for roughly 6 months..

Since rediscovery - I’ve been using this a couple of times a week (when I have time), prior to foundation but after primer, to even out my skin tone and ideally make my foundation last a lot longer. Of the colours, I only find myself using the green, purple and yellow on a daily basis but a lot of this is because the product doesn’t actually tell you what colour does what. If it weren’t for a quick google of the product and reading this post by London Beauty Queen, god knows what I’d have been doing!

I use the green to target my redness, purple to counteract any yellowness, and the yellow on those pesky purple bags. And to be honest, I do love these shades. The colours even out the specific area whilst adding next to no coverage (which not everyone may like but I do as it doesn’t impact my foundation) and leaves my face so even for applying my base. It’s also reduced the amount of concealer I’m using as this was previously my only method of combatting redness around the nose and chin. 

The only downside is that I don’t actually use 50% of the product. I use the silver now and again to help highlight but you don’t really see it when I put my (usually matte) foundation on top. And as for the other colours..  they just don’t suit me. I tried to use the darkest shade to contour one morning but it was too red toned and turned into a bit of a hot mess on my cheeks (I do believe they're intended for darker skin tones). And the others I just don’t have a use for. At £6 I would probably buy this again, but I think it would be a much more effective product if it only had the purple, green and yellow, or perhaps catered for fair, medium and dark skin. Have you tried your hand at clown contouring? A. xo
