4 steps to a full matte base that lasts all day

Some days call for full matte coverage, whether it’s for IRL fun or a long day of Zoom calls. This handy tutorial talks you through the products that will help to make sure your look lasts all day.

We’ve chosen the best products for creating full matte coverage to banish imperfections, shine, pores, discolouration, redness and veins, all available from THE ONE’s Make-up Pro range inspired by products used by professional make-up artists. We’ll talk your through how to apply matte foundation for a flawless base that will last all day and make the professional make-up artists proud.

First up apply a primer. Choose THE ONE Colour Correction Primer, which is perfect for correcting discolouration, and soothes your skin with chamomile extract to create a smooth base to build your full coverage. It will blur imperfections and help your foundation to last longer. *

Now to the main event: THE ONE’s Make-up Pro All Cover Foundation Stick. Packed with pigments, this foundation will fully cover visible skin imperfections – pigmentation, redness, discolouration, and veins. It’s up to you to decide if you want to go a step further with extreme coverage, which you can get by applying multiple layers.

First up, apply by swiping the foundation directly onto your skin. Start with your forehead, then move onto your cheeks, the bridge of your nose and chin.

Use a Foundation Brush to blend and if you want more definition then finish with a Contouring Brush. Make sure to allow the foundation to fully set before applying the next layer, using the same technique as first time around. Waiting for it to set is key.


THE ONE Loose Powder will complement your full coverage with a silky-smooth matte finish perfect for making sure you avoid flashback in photos and videos and that you stay shine free in Zoom calls. Packed with over 90% anti-flashback powders, it is designed to set your make up, reduce shine, blur pores and imperfections, and keep everything in place for up to 12 hours. *

Dust the powder over your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin using a powder brush or a sponge.


THE ONE Face Mist is the perfect finishing touch for your full matte coverage look. Not only does the formula lock your look in place, helping to resist fade, melt and transfer, but you get a refreshing feel when you apply the mist. The simplest way to apply is to hold the bottle around 25cm from your face and spray, first moving across your face in an X shape, then in a T shape.

And you are done! Enjoy your full coverage look that lasts all day, you look like a true pro!
