RCMA's Foundations are a favourite of Make Up Artists and they are available in a wide range of colours and tones to suit all complexions.

These handy little clear palettes, each containing 5 shades, are called the Series Favourites as they contain the most popular colours in each colour series.

A kit essential to ensure you have a colour tone for all complexions.

Available in five colour variations:

Shinto Series: Left to right: SH1, SH2, SH3, SH4, SH5

The colours in this palette have primarily yellow undertones turning to a greenish yellow for a slight coolness as the shades deepen. The SH Series suits light through to tanned complexions. Created specifically for Asian skins and complexions with more yellow tones. Note that the SH5 has slightly less warmth/intensity. 

KO Series: Left to right: KO1, KO2, KO3, KO4, KO7

The colours in this palette are the in betweens to the SH Shinto Series and are quite neutral with a mix of peachy and yellow tones to compliment and work with both red or yellow undertoned complexions. The KO Series range from fair through to tan and even deeper skins with the KO1- KO4 being fair, light, medium and tan shades, the KO5- KO8 run through medium to deep shades. 

KA Series: Left to right: KA1, KA2, KA3, KA4, KO2

The colours in this palette have subtle yellow undertones in shades suited to very pale and fair skins. The cream, soft yellow tinged shades help to impart a very natural warmth to the complexion and yellow tones will also help to neutralise any pink or high colour which can be present in very pale skins. KA1 is the palest in the series with the KA2 & KA3 being medium shades and finally the KA4 is the deepest in this series.

KT Series: Left to right: KT1, KT2, KT3, KT34, KT4

This colour range was designed for tanned Caucasian complexions KT3 is a lovely deep yellow tone to add warmth and tan without looking ashy. 

Olive Series: Left to right: GB, OL2, OL3, TT, OL4

The colours in this palette are warmer than the SH & KO Series with less yellow making them a more peachy olive shade and contain a bit more red, suited to a neutral olive skintone rather than a really golden/yellow olive skin. They add a natural, realistic warmth to the complexion. They deepen in shade as the numbers rise starting with the Gena Beige as the palest and with OL4 being the deepest shade in this series.

The creamy formula has a high pigment content of around 50%, resulting in excellent colour payoff without the need to layer on too much product keeping the results natural and realistic...a little goes a very long way!

Comprised of a clean blend of just vegetable oils, pure waxes and pigment making it unlikely to cause allergic reactions.

The formula does not always require powdering, particularly on a drier skin. On an oilier complexion it can be finished and set using the RCMA No Color Powder to ensure that the results remain fresh and natural and never cakey.  

RCMA Foundations are a cult favourite of Makeup Artists as they are available in such a wide range of shades for all skins and they provide professional, natural, beautiful results for not only everyday makeup application but also look amazing under HD film and camera.

How To Use:

Warm up the natural waxes on the back of your hand to body temperature prior to application to create a smooth, blendable, seamless consistency.

This foundation can be layered to obtain fuller coverage.

To sheer it out into a less opaque finish, for a more fluid consistency use a drop of the RCMA Foundation Thinner and for a creamy consistency use the RCMA Clear Foundation.

The shades themselves are so carefully thought through and translate into real life skin tones to flatter and compliment all complexions.

The RCMA Foundations come in a series of undertones and within each series there is a range of depths covering all skin colours from the very palest to the very darkest and all the various shades in between making this an all inclusive range.
