The last thing Vincent Kehoe of the Research Council of Makeup Artists wanted to do was create more of the same in the world of foundations. It was this desire that revolutionized the world of makeup as we know it, spawning the now-legendary RCMA Foundation. Considered the top choice of professionals everywhere, RCMA Foundation is a staple in many an artist's kit. A professional, highly pigmented, blendable cream base that is formulated without perfume, mineral oil or lanolin, RCMA Foundation is ideal for photography, film and anywhere high-definition quality is needed with a finish that feels light enough for every day wear as well. Not sure what color you need? Buy a sample!
"I carry RCMA professional makeup palettes in my kit. This is a great foundation for print, TV, film and bridal. I am never caught without the right color when I have these!" --Mary Erickson
What makes RCMA so different?
Other Ways to Try RCMA:
Weight: 1oz. / 28gm.
Cream cosmetics often "sweat" and form small beads of moisture on the surface. This is normal and does not in any way effect the quality of the product.

I have used this foundation for brides and for family photos. Everyone looks exceptional! I also use it every day. It is highly pigmented. For personal use I can get over a year's worth of foundation in one pot. It gives a beautiful glow to your skin, just a bit above a matte finish. When I want more coverage I use a Kabuki brush and it gives a great airbrushed look. When I want sheer coverage I mix RCMA foundation with my favorite moisturizer and basically create a liquid foundation. It is the only foundation I buy now.

I love this foundation. It has excellent coverage, is long lasting, applies evenly, and doesn't accentuate pores or flaws on the skin, and it hasn't made me break out at all (I've been using it for 2-3 months) It also photographs well, no white cast or flash back. My one complaint is about the shade range. There are a limited number of pale shades and they are very cool/pink toned. I use Ivory, but it is a bit too pink for me(I have a neutral undertone) But when I mix it with a small amount of yellow color corrector it matches my skin perfectly and is still my favorite foundation.

The Porcelain shade is perfect for the super fair ladies with cool/pink undertones (like me). It has the best coverage I've seen with any foundation, and you only have to use a tiny bit to get medium to full coverage (the amount you get will last you for a very long time). I also like how it isn't oily or greasy feeling; it's actually on the drier side in terms of cream foundations, which is great because other cream foundations tend to leave me shiny after only a few hours of wear (even with powder). Love this stuff!

I just love this foundation! Color match is spot on with Shinto 1. I am typically MAC NC25. I gave it four stars because just does not seem to hold up all day. I have extremely oily skin and towards the middle of the day, I am blotting and my make up will pull up with the blotting papers/sheets. Frustrating. I use the RCMA no color powder but still, oil seems to seep through. I don't want to take away from the foundation because coverage is excellent, just not made for my oily skin.

finally found a foundation that really really covers !!! but does not feel heavy or greasy.blends easily ,I bought the palette, and the single size for my purse ,it blends with a rounded mineral brush really well.if you are a nc30 in mac youll be Shinto 1 or Shinto 2.olive 1 will match too.thats why I love crc ,you can buy samples and try them to match your color, I also bought a couple of samples of kevin aucoin ,cant wait to try them, thanks crc!!!!!!!!!!!

Fabulous product that is so highly pigmented it can tailor itself to whatever level of cover is required. The finish gives a subtle luminosity that is entirely natural looking and the integrity of the ingredients is another huge bonus. A makeup must have.

This is the best foundation I've used thus far... It provides a great canvas without covering my beauty marks, i.e. freckles. You can't even tell you're wearing makeup.

This has to be the best foundation I have ever used. I was worried it being so thick but when used it during my last shoot the models looked flawless on and off camera. I love this product and will be buying it again and again.

I heard about this foundation from make-up artist, Wayne Goss. This foundation definitely lives up to his hype. It is very creamy while putting it on and might look cakey at first. However, shortly after, it is almost like it melts into your face and looks like your skin! It stays on all day and I never had to retouch it after wearing it for several hours. My make up still looked flawless.

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.
Posted by Lisa on Sep 30th 2013
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!
