"Foundation is the first and most important step in any make-up."
FIRST BASE is skin care in a foundation. It creates a smooth, flawless complexion with a radiant, natural finish, whilst Re-AgeTM Complex charges the skin with youthful energy, to help increase collagen levels. Light on the skin with excellent adhesion. Includes Hyaluronic Acid & UV filters. Paraben free.
It’s important to select the right colour for your skin tone but how do you know which is best for you? No matter how fair or dark the skin colour it will have cool, warm or neutral undertones.
If you’re cool, the veins on your inner wrist will appear blue, you tend to turn a flushed pink colour in the sun, and you burn easily. Silver rather than gold jewellery will work best against your skin.
If you’re warm, the veins on your wrist will appear more green than blue, and you tan quickly in the sun. Gold jewellery will flatter and melt into your skin.
A neutral skin has an equal number of blue and green veins and both gold and silver jewellery suit. This is the lucky skin tone as both will flatter.
Joan’s Tip: Once both are applied and blended I recommend Impeccable Finish loose powder to fix them in place.

|Instructions||Concealer or foundation first? It’s up to you and what you need to conceal. Dot First Base onto face, 2 pumps of foundation should be enough, and blend thoroughly – this is essential. I find fingers work best. First Base is a buildable formula, so if you feel you need more, go ahead.|
For years I have had trouble finding a foundation, that doesn't melt off my face by lunchtime. I have an oily T-Zone and find a lot of foundations wear off and become quite greasy looking around my Forehead and chin area. But not this one! This is long lasting, and teamed with the Impeccable Finish Loose powder, my make up lasts all day!
This is well worth the money and a must have for everyone! I can fully recommend this to anyone who has particularly oily skin. Amazing product Joan!
I have tried many foundations over the years - mostly from the well known cosmetic houses. This foundation is the first I have found that lasts all day, even on my nose and chin where everyone else's (even 15hr/all day foundations) have gone by midday. The coverage is excellent and I frequently get told how well I look, which is down to the natural finish. I blend two shades to get the colour I want, but very few foundations are a perfect match. You don't need much either as a little goes a long way, especially with a good foundation brush. I find I use much less than with other premium brands so I feel you get what you pay for with Joan.
