Meet Ultra Skin - the ultimate lightweight foundation. Its silicone-based formula perfects the skin with a long-lasting satin finish with light to medium buildable coverage. The creamy, souffle-like texture produces an airbrush-like result and is perfect if you want a foundation that can be applied like a moisturiser without compromising performance. Ultra Skin's shades cover the lightest to richest complexions and are colour-matched to award-winning Ultra Foundation. No primer needed! It's built into Ultra Skin's sophisticated formula that also has soft-focus properties, diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The flawless, satin finish doesn't need powder to set and thanks to the silicone-based formula, it's ideal for mature, troubled or sensitive skin. Ultra Skin works in perfect harmony with FACE atelier's complete complexion range, including Ultra Foundation's beloved adjusters: Zero Minus and Zero Plus. The pump applicator and tube make it perfect for travel or a Pro kit. Suitable for all skin types, water and sebum resistant, Ultra Skin performs brilliantly in hot, humid and arid climates.
The silicones in the formula ensure a long lasting, moisture, heat and oil-resistant finish that doesn’t crack, settle or fade. The silicone molecule is bigger than human pore, enabling it to float on the skin without settling into pores, fine lines or wrinkles. It also has soft focus properties that create optical blurring, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and gives the illusion of smoother, more uniform skin. Ultra Skin performs well in any weather, from stifling humidity to cold, dry winter conditions.
Cylcomethicone / Cetyl Dimethicone - Silicones are derived from silica that is derived from quartz, the second most naturally occurring mineral on earth. They impart emolliency and significantly enhance a product’s lifespan and effectiveness. They create a soft, smooth product that is pleasant to apply and, in the case of cyclomethicone, impart a unique skin feel. Silicones are naturally water resistant while absorbing sebum (the oily substance produced by certain glands in the skin), thus reducing skin shine. Their molecules are larger than human pores, preventing them from settling into them upon application. The unique molecular structure of silicones (larger molecules with wider spaces between each molecule) allows them to form a breathable and protective barrier between skin and the product. They also have unique healing and protecting properties. Silicones ensure an even application of other ingredients and leave behind a silky, almost imperceptible feel that noticeably enhances the skin's texture and appearance.

Don't fret! If you're not certain which shade of foundation to purchase, order a sample and test one or multiple shades, first. Each sample represents three full pumps and will be shipped in small sample jars.
All you have to do is choose your shade, wait for the sample to arrive, test it on your skin in the comfort of your home and in daylight (not under artificial lights). And, when you're ready, place your order knowing that you've chosen the right shade.

We always recommend using a Foundation brush to ensure smooth and hygienic application, but thanks to Ultra Skin's unique, user-friendly formula and pump applicator, fingers are allowed.
Regardless of how you apply it, use sparingly as a little goes a long way.
Start in the T-zone and work your way out, patting it onto the skin - no long swipes. The PROs call this "stippling". Reapply for more coverage as needed.
Don't automatically reach for the powder after applying Ultra Skin. It sets itself to a flawless, satin finish. If you powder, do so sparingly as too much will accentuate skin imperfections as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
