Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette

Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette ReviewPIN IT

I’ve had the Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette for absolutely ages, but I only started using it a few weeks ago, and now I’ve used it so much that I’m almost hitting pan (as the cool kids say…) on a couple of the shades.  I’m a huge fan of colour correcting as it makes life a lot easier for people with skin like mine, that’s pale, blotchy and prone to redness, so I had very high expectations for this purse-friendly palette.

The Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette is a very well sized collection of eight colour-correcting shades.  The top row contains pink for brightening, lavender for balancing yellow tones, green for balancing red tones and orange for balancing blue tones.  The bottom row contains peach for light, general colour-correcting, white for brightening, cream for balancing purple tones and general darker areas and finally, brown for tackling ashiness in darker skin tones.

As you can see, it’s a comprehensive line-up of colour correcting creams that tackle pretty much every colour issue you could come across.  The formula is extremely creamy, blendable and highly pigmented, making them very easy to work with and blend out beautifully.  I have used individual products costing four times as much as this whole palette that haven’t performed as well.

The thing to remember about colour correcting is that it’s something that happens before the application of foundation, so you can be pretty haphazard and you don’t have to focus too much on blending to a seamless finish.  The three colours I use most are yellow, green and peach.  I use peach for the under eye area to balance and brighten, then I use yellow for tackling my main issue which redness.  I use yellow quite generously, then anywhere that still looks quite red gets followed up with green to held neutralise it.  Obviously the whole idea of colour correcting is to remove colour, so you’ll be left looking pretty pale and sickly and will need a good dose of warming blush and bronzer to (rather ironically) counteract the colour-correcting.  If you’re a fan of colour correcting then you definitely need the Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette in your life, especially considering it’s only £6 here – link – I would happily pay triple that!

      It’s honestly an essential for me – it’s so much easier than trying to conceal all the redness 🙂

      If you struggle to even out your skintone then you will absolutely love this! You’ll probably find you don’t need such high coverage foundations as this will do all the work for you xx

Stress and poorliness have given me a few breakouts recently; nothing too awful, but certainly a couple of spots here...
