Welcome to Runway Rooms “Show & Tell” Beauty blog ! 

Meet with us here every month where we will share with you our favourite beauty & makeup tips, tricks & demonstrations!

This month let’s….  “ACE OUR BASE”

As the weather gets cooler our skin gets drier due to artificial heating & extreme weather changes.

The key here is to prepare the skin for an ace base !

Hydration, hydration, hydration .. 💦



Here our hero product, First Base steps in.. I can honestly say it will be your secret weapon in your makeup application ! 

Without a doubt, First base is an incredible primer but especially works wonders for mature skin!

With a whopping 2% hyaluronic acid, it will definitely add the hydration our skin needs, but it also works by filling in fine lines & wrinkles, blurring imperfections, giving our skin a youthful glow & ensuring longer lasting makeup!

Key point - focus on areas prone to fine lines 



A good concealer will be your best friend when it comes to camouflaging dark circles, redness, age spots & any areas that need a little extra coverage 

Again, hydration is a must - the shea butter in this formula will condition & brighten the delicate skin under your eyes.

Say hello to PINK FLESH, and goodbye to all of the above concerns! 

Pink Flesh is a mineral based concealer that has a satin finish and most importantly will not cake under the eyes. 

Key point - for a youthful lifted effect, apply a small amount on the inner corner of the eyes & lifting towards your hairline in the outer corner 



Choosing the right foundation for your skin makes the world of difference. 

Today “Face Base” is in the Spotlight 


Generally a heavy matte formula will settle into fine lines actually accentuating what you’re trying to hide.

Runway Room Face Base is a lightweight, hydrating, light to medium coverage foundation with a glowy dewy/satin finish that will make your skin have that beautiful youthful glow 

Key point - Face Base is buildable, you can make it fuller coverage if needed. 



To prolong the longevity of your makeup without sacrificing your dewy finish you can’t go past our loose mineral powder. Not only will it set & maintain your glow but it will further compliment your makeup by blurring & smoothing your skin !

Key note - it also has an SPF of 15 


I can’t wait to share another “Show & Tell” with you all next month !! 

If there’s anything you would love me to cover please feel free to let us know!!

So until next time … Ace your Base !
