January 1 | 16 minute watch



Originally published on | April 2

MECCA Makeup Education Lead Hannah covers the complexion basics: how to pick a primer, foundation, concealer and powder, plus the application tools and techniques you need to build a beautiful base.

About this course:

At MECCA, we love creating dewy, natural makeup looks that give an airbrushed effect. And our biggest secret? The base! In this lesson, MECCA Makeup Education Lead Hannah breaks down how to create a flawless complexion using primer, foundation, concealer and powder.

We know there’s no substitute for practise, but the theory in this class will empower you with the knowledge and skills to start practising like a pro! (Psst, we also recommend finding some natural light or splurging on a mirror with backlighting.)

What you’ll learn along the way:

1. Using primer to keep your makeup looking fresh for hours

2. Decoding the world of foundation to pick the right finish, coverage and colour for you and MECCA’s best application techniques

3. Using concealer to highlight or add coverage

4. Setting it all in place with powder
