Rev up your makeup repertoire with RMK’s trio of beautifying base products, all of which promise to leave your complexion looking perfectly poreless and porcelain smooth in no time at all
Meet your new makeup must-haves Love a flawless finish, but loathe to pile on layer after layer of suffocatingly sticky creams? Have we got good news for you – now you can enjoy a nude and natural look with an exciting new trio of base products from RMK, all of which boast luxuriously lightweight textures that melt into your skin like a dream. Check them out on the following slides, and get all the tips you need to make your makeup work better for you. Step 1: Fun in the sun First things first: Layering on a primer is essential if you want your base to be budge-proof. But what about the suffocating stickiness? Enter RMK’s Long Lasting UV, $57, a lovely lightweight lotion-like offering that boasts a skim milk-like texture that’s incredibly refreshing to wear in sweltering Singapore. Brimming with a botanical blend of antioxidant actives and hydrating heroes like salvia extract to keep your skin soothed and smooth in our erratic weather, the impressive SPF45/PA++++ rating of the formula serves as a superb shield against brown spots and blotchiness. And while it isn’t tinted per se, the fabulously featherweight finish serves like a silky veil to blur out pits and tighten pores – your skin will look like your own, only better. Packaging-wise, this posh protector comes in a convenient tube of minimalist matte white – making it a very Instagram-friendly prop for your next #flatlay shot. Bottomline? This primer is essential preliminary prep for any makeup look, and is an absolute must-have for the dog days of summer ahead. Step 2: Colour correct blotchy blemishes Time to prime! The RMK Basic Control Color, $30 in four shades, is a hybrid hero product packed with RMK’s signature skin-soothing citrus aurantium peel and bilberry extract, and boasts a cooling gel-like consistency that irons out any irregularities in texture and tone. Step 2: Colour correct blotchy blemishes What colour to choose? Available in a quartet of precision-engineered pigments to perfect patchy complexion, opt for 01 silver to supercharge your skin with a lustrous luminosity, or gun for 02 Purple to brighten up dullness and discolouration. If you’re agonising over acne scars, 03 Green is great for reducing redness, while 04 Coral is superb for suffusing your skin with a hale and healthy flush. Simply stipple the creamy base onto any areas of concern you may have, then blend outwards to blur the boundary between blemish and surrounding skin. Step 3: All about the base On to foundation. You’re in for a nude awakening with RMK’s liquid foundations. The UV Liquid Foundation, $70 in seven Asian-friendly shades, is a true weightless wonder that feels like absolutely nothing on your skin – no stickiness or ickiness whatsoever. Packed with pampering moisture magnets and beautifying botanicals the likes of citrus aurantium peel and bilberry extracts, this velvety veil glides on like a dream for a perfectly polished and incredibly natural finish. Even better, the sweat- and sebum-resistant formula means you can expect a fresh face that looks as if you’re bathed in a dewy glow all day – sort of like having a filter app switched on in real life. Step 3: All about the base Another big plus: The powerful SPF50++/PA+++ rating means you’re also shielding your sensitive skin from the rapacious rays of the sun – if you’re planning on staying indoors, this multi-tasking marvel should be able to double up as a sunscreen of sorts. Voila! Congrats on successfully laying the “foundation” of any hot-weather makeup routine. You’re all ready to “face” the day!
