The cornerstone of legendary makeup brand RCMA, their iconic foundations are known and loved for the long-lasting and highly-pigmented formulas. Whilst most day to day foundations contain up to 23% pigment and stage foundations contain up to 40%, foundations from RCMA contain nearly 50% pigment meaning a little goes a long way. Without compromising on that covetable skin-like finish, all RCMA foundations are formulated with superior vegetable oil and wax for a natural and seamless finish.


RCMA, the Research Council of Makeup Artists, have created various foundation palettes so you can perfect your shade match no matter whether you’re a makeup artist or just an enthusiast. The bestselling Custom Australian Foundation Palette 18pc has been developed specifically with the Australian market in mind, tailoring to typical skin tones in Australia. Containing 18 skin-like shades, from light to dark and warm to cool, the individual pans can be used on their own or expertly blended to achieve the perfect colour match. RCMA also offer other 18-pan palettes, the Makeup 18p VK11 Palette and the Makeup 18p VK10 palette for a variation of skin tones.


As well as their large 18-pan palettes, RCMA have created a variety of 5-pan palette in light and cool shades. These are not only a quick and easy way to craft your unique skin shade but they are also perfect for travelling as well as for contour and highlight.


If you want a lighter base to work with, you can transform any of the RCMA formulas with the Foundation Thinner. Simply mix a drop or two into your favourite cream foundation to enjoy a light and dewy base.

Great for a trial

I'm really glad I decided on this smaller kit before looking to purchase the larger set. The colours are great, a tad difficult to spread on the skin. After watching youtube reviews I discovered it's best to warm on the skin first or mix with the RCMA thinning product. Honestly I don't think I'll be buying the larger kit as it's about the same lasting as a light weight foundation and I was looking for long lasting (similar to Estee lauder DW or Kryolan Paint sticks). I also thought the packaging was very cheap. The lid has already broken after a week or two of use.

amazing tones and texture!

I purchased the pallet since I wanted to carry less in my kit and I know that's iconic product.
I also was aware that it might be difficult to apply in the beginning and needs to time to learn how to work with it...
Following the tips made my first application and I am so impressed.

Cream blush

This is fantastic for someone getting into cream blushes. The first few shades are a natural wash of colour, and the others offer depth and more pigment. I think these are super versatile and easy to blend
