If you're a makeup lover with a TikTok account you will have heard of @PaintedbySpencer.

Spencer is a makeup artist who first went viral for his reverse cat eye look. This time however, it's not Spencer going viral but rather one of his recommendations.

Now, I don't know about you, but nothing makes me want a product more than seeing it raved about on TikTok. Take the Ikea Dejsa table lamp which I'm currently coveting.

While TikTok is a great place to find recommendations, it's also a terrible place for selling out said recommendations. Hence me refreshing the Ikea website on a daily basis.

Spencer knows this and gave his followers adequate warning when he shared the foundation he has used for years and by his own admission has been "gatekeeping".

It's the foundation he claims that makes your skin look airbrushed, always gets compliments and is used by every celebrity makeup artist and the Kardashians themselves.

It is of course the RCMA foundation, which I can also attest is beloved by makeup artists as I have spotted it in none other than Mario Dedivanovic's kit when he *humble brag* did my makeup.

Now, Spencer did caveat his recommendation with a request that you watch his video on how to apply it as this cream foundation may not be for everybody.

The main takeaway being that you do need to set this foundation with a powder as otherwise it will slip and slide.

Now, as RCMA is a pro makeup brand, you aren't going to find this foundation in your local Boots. But as well as pro makeup stores, you can find it on online shops like Beauty Bay who are currently stocking the palette version which gives you 5 varying shades.

Just after one shade? Guru Makeup Emporium has every shade you can think of, but you might want to move fast before the inevitable sell out.

Now, if you could all start buying this foundation and stop buying my Ikea lamp that would really help me out.
