Le Maq 'Basic Base Box' designed by Daniel Phillips
DESIGNED BY DANIEL PHILLIPS- BAFTA nominee for achievement in make up and hairstyling.
"Generally I am able to work on many Caucasian and Mediterranean skin tones with this palette."
181: The Darkest Colour (top left corner). This is great for most men as a standard base coat. Thin it down with a mixer to a mere wash of colour and cool it down with a mix of 164 – this helps lift any ruddiness. Mixing 181 with a tiny amount of C1 freshens and cleans up the base.
164: The top Middle Pinky Tone. Lovely for a soft gentle base for women. This can be cooled once again with the C1 or warmed with the 170.
124: Bottom Left. Slight ash tone – good for jaw shading. Can be used sparingly to bring down a reddish skin tone when added to another base.
145: A flush of colour to cheeks and jaw line or in addition to the beige tones to soften.
C1: Good for clean up / highlight or to lighten a base colour.
