The Base Makeup Box

A flawless makeup look is like a house: it all starts off with a good foundation so that everything that goes on top looks fantastic and stays put. Don’t worry if you’ve got a couple of blemishes here and there, Althea’s Base Makeup Box is here to help you fake it till you make it. Specially curated to help you achieve a fresh, perfected complexion, this box contains 11 full-sized products ranging from skincare to colour correction to products that even out your skin tone. It also comes with an adorable makeup pouch so you have a place to store all these products. Here’s the beauty breakdown on Althea’s Base Makeup Box!

Mamonde Flower Essential Mask in Rose (Moisturizing)
Good skin starts off with skincare, and for a quick fix, popping a mask on will help prep your skin for any occasion that’s to come. This sheet mask contains an essence infused with rose extract that intensely moisturizes your skin, leaving you with a complexion that’s plump, hydrated and glowy. We adore this mask and we’ve included not just one, but two in this box!

How to use: After cleansing skin, remove sheet from packet and apply onto the skin. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then remove and massage remaining essence into the skin.

Secret Key Natural Daily Pure Sun Stick
Honey, we can’t forget sunscreen now, can we? Those treacherous rays are going to ruin our gorgeous skin! Don’t stress, this super light, non-greasy balm’s got you covered. Super easy to use, this sun stick twists up and applies onto the skin without any heaviness or tackiness on the skin. Plus, it has a gentle floral scent to it so you can smell as fresh as you feel.

How to use: Apply evenly onto the skin and gently pat in and blend out.

Milky Dress Trill Beige Silky Velvet Primer
This non-sticky primer glides onto the skin to fill pores and fine lines, smoothing out any rough patches and bumps you may have. It also helps to control excess oil production and gives your foundation something to stick to so you don’t have to worry about it sliding around by midday.

How to use: After skincare routine, apply a thin layer evenly onto the skin before foundation application.

Aritaum Real Ampoule Color Corrector
These click pens come in three different colors that work to counteract your skin’s uneven pigmentation. With a hydrating formula, these pens come in mint, peach, and purple that when applied to specific areas, will brighten up and even out your skin’s natural color. A definite must have for a gorgeous foundation application.

How to use: Click and apply onto targeted areas and blend out with your finger or a sponge.
Mint - Apply onto areas with redness like blemishes and around the nose
Peach - Apply to under the eye areas that have a bluish undertone
Purple - Apply to dull, darkened areas of the face to brighten it up

A: Concept All In One Brightening A Cushion (#23) and Concealer
Hold up, the concealer fits into the cushion? Sign us up! This adorable, ergonomically designed cushion has our hearts all fluttery. With a gorgeous satin finish, this cushion provides the skin with natural but great coverage that evens out and covers blemishes. The concealer has a slightly thicker consistency that’s perfect for spot concealing, so all you need to do is dot on, blend and you’re good to go!

How to use: Pop open the cushion and pick up product using the puff provided, and apply onto the skin, gently tapping to blend out. For blemishes, dot on with the concealer and blend out accordingly.

Witch's Pouch Triplus Cover Glow Foundation (#23)
If you’re looking for something with more coverage and more “chok-chok” qualities, try out this glowy full coverage foundation. Best used with a beauty sponge, this leaves the skin even, hydrated and absolutely glorious looking. For those who need a little extra staying powder, dust on some translucent powder and you’re set.

How to use: Apply evenly onto the skin, gently blending out with a sponge or brush for a seamless finish.
