RCMA Foundation is a professional Hi-Percentage-Pigmentation, easy spreading cream base with no perfume, mineral oil or lanolin. Great for photography, TV, Film, Video. This makeup is great for every day wear as well. If you are building your kit, the most popular colors are identified for you in the drop down menu.
Foundations are available in 1/8 oz and 3/8 oz sizes, click here to view. Some colors may not be available in all sizes.
NOTE: All cream foundation and correctors sweat. You will at times see beads of moisture on the surface of the product. This does not affect the product at all.
Please buy a sample if you are not sure what color you need!
It is manufactured under very stringent, small batch conditions where the ingredients are weighed out to the gram to maintain both consistency and color standards exactly.
It contains only vegetable oils, pure waxes and FDA approved colors. It does NOT contain any perfume, lanolin, petrolatum or mineral oil--the first two have caused allergenic reactions on some skins and the last two are not absorbed by the skin so remain to cause excess oiliness on the surface. Note that theatrical foundations contain mineral oil or petrolatum ,as a major ingredient.
Exact color standards are maintained in RCMA FOUNDATIONS from batch to batch and tested on each run against standards. To a make-up artist this is most important for color-matching.
The selection of colors or shades varies throughout the required skin tones for all racial types plus the same base is employed for RCMA COUNTER SHADINGS, SHADINGS, CHEEK COLORS and COLOR WHEEL RAINBOW shades so that they all "powder down" with the same degree of reflectivity. Therefore, the CHEEK COLORS are not greasier or of different consistency from the FOUNDATION, nor are any of the special bright COLOR WHEEL shades.
In manufacturing, they are all made with at least 50% pigments to waxes and oils so that a very little goes a long way on the skin and produces as "skin color" rather than a heavy coat of make-up. Most commercial liquid foundations have a ratio of about 18 to 23 percent of pigment to the liquid and, in general, theatrical foundations normally run between 30 to 35 percent of pigments to waxes and oils. In this way, RCMA FOUNDATIONS cover better than others and more make-ups can be done per cake of make-up.
As such, RCMA FOUNDATIONS last better throughout a long shooting day than comparably employed theatrical or commercial foundations, and require less ~ touch-up. When they do, there is no caking on the skin and RCMA "No-Color" POWDER is all that is required to slightly dull the low shine. In many cases of performers with dry skin, due to the low halation of RCMA FOUNDATIONS, no powdering is required--especially on men's make-up that is seldom if ever powdered.

i must admit I was skeptical for the shade I picked. but it matched beautifully. I have been using it for about a week or so & I am loving it.
goes on like a dream with fingers. i yet to try it with beautyblender, but I did just purchased sigma F88 for this.
light to full coverage. although it did make my pores stand out under my eye area.
other than that I am satisfied.

I liked this foundation so much the first time I tried it, I am replenishing it now that I have finally began to run out. It is light, yet somehow provides great coverage. It lasts all day, and much to my surprise, withstands all of the riggers that I put it through until I remove it in the evening. The color is clean and true and it makes me look allot more natural than conventional foundations ever did. I am very pleased!

This foundation contains 50% pigment, it gives great/flawless coverage, and the great part is that you do not need a lot of this product to cover your face, red spots, etc. It comes in the most amazing range of colors. They're so creamy, so blendable, so beautiful, and made with natural ingredients. I've had this product for almost 4 months, yet I still have more than half of it left. Although it's such a lovely foundation, personally I would recommend for those with oily skin (such as myself) to get/use a powder, and powder the parts you would normally contour, so you can still have that gorgeous glowing skin. All in all, this foundation is FANTASTIC!

This foundation covers my dark spot well. But I can't seem to find the right shade for my skin. I got myself shinto 1 and felt that it a tad dark for my skin. I'm an nc20. Other than that this foundation works fine.

Without being plastered looking this coverup is the best I have ever used!

When set w/ the loose powder, lasts longer than most foundations. The shade range is great especially for fair skin, cool undertones. Works best w/ damp sponge then foundation brush to remove any excess. Also works well as under eye concealor and highlighter. Will most likely repurchase. As a beauty industry professional, it is one of a few foundations I consistently reach for to achieve any look.

this is the best foundation around, very light and doesn't change color. coverage is awesome. More , you don't look like you have on makeup because the colors are the best match.
Love it!!!!! 5 stars*****

This foundation smoothed the under eye area, covered my dark circles and evened out my skin tone. My appearance is more youthful and my dry skin is glowing. I look much younger when I use this make up. I will definitely purchase again.

I am the equivalent of NC15/20 and this is the perfect colour for me. It blends very easily with a buffing brush. Can be built up to a maximum coverage or sheered right down. I have a very oily t-zone and by the end of the day (or on a very hot day in Australia) it kind of looks a bit coagulated and as though it's sitting on top of my skin but I don't mind because it's virtually impossible to find a foundation that does last all day for me without getting a bit shiny. Overall I am very impressed with both the product performance and the price. It will last me a very long time but I will definitely be purchasing this again. CRC customer service is FANTASTIC - super fast and very friendly. Thank you!

I don't think i have EVER loved a product as much as i do this one. It melts into the skin ABSOLUTELY beautifully when using a wet blending sponge. It looks like nothing on your skin and wears incredibly long. Does not cake up (but a big part of that may have to do with the application method), has excellent coverage, and a little bit goes a long, long way. I will continue repurchasing this product as long as it is available to me! Love, Love, Love!!!!

First of all, I was very fortunate that I was able to find a near perfect color match for my skin-tone first try. I like the creamy texture of this makeup. Its blend-ability as well as the way it looks and feels on my face and neck. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because, as much as enjoy its light weight consistency, ironically for me, it may be just a tiny bit too light weight. Oh yeah, cool price too.

I've used every foundation under the sun (Graftobian, Kryolan, CS etc.) and can't recommend any of them as much as this product. It's now a staple in my kit. It blends beautifully, performs superbly on all skin types, can be thinned and built up, doesn't cake or streak and stands up to heat/humidity extremely well. All my clients compliment it as the best foundation they've ever seen on their skin. And the colour palette is fantastic. RCMA all the way!
