How to Create the Perfect Makeup Base

Ellise Ferguson’s
Perfect Makeup Base

We’ve partnered with makeup artist and Instagram star, Ellise Ferguson to get the insider secrets on her perfect makeup base. This quick and easy-to-follow video will show you Ellise’s skincare and base makeup picks for a gorgeous, glowing complexion that works with any eye and lip look you choose.


There are plenty of good reasons to start your makeup look with a skincare routine, not least because your makeup will look fresher for longer. Your skin will also feel plumper and in the long term will look better and feel healthier too. Ellise starts her routine with our bestselling Advanced Génifique Serum. This featherlight serum contains 7 pre- and probiotics which help to support the skin barrier for stronger, smoother and more resilient skin.

It contains hyaluronic acid, so skin instantly looks more radiant and feels hydrated ahead of makeup.

Next up, Ellise reaches for Advanced Génifique Light Pearl, our cooling, de-puffing, ultra-lightweight eye serum that helps to smooth and reduce eye bags. It doubles as a lash strengthening serum and the cold metal applicator soothes and helps to de-puff.

I like to use small circular motions for a pre-makeup massage, perfect for before applying concealer.

Ellise chooses Teint Idole Ultra Wear Care & Glow Foundation in shade 120N, this 82% skincare serum foundation gives the complexion a healthy glow that catches the light naturally, plus all the benefits of a hydrating serum. Ellise applies the buildable formula with a foundation brush for medium coverage that gives skin a radiant, smooth finish.

The hyaluronic acid and mandelic acid help to even the skin tone and smooth texture over time, whilst delivering a glowing makeup finish in a buildable, long wearing formula.

Follow these three simple steps and not only will your skin look more even with a natural glow, but over time your skin will be healthier and happier too. This simple and effective routine is ideal for all skin types including oily skin and dry skin as its focus is on strengthening the skin barrier. A strong barrier means skin will be more resilient to stress and changes in the environment, and look smooth, healthy and radiant.
