Foundation by Issada: Where Skincare Meets Makeup

Born from Australia's diverse beauty, our foundation range isn't just makeup; it's a reflection of our commitment and passion. Inspired by our deep roots in the cosmetics world, we combine nature's best ingredients with modern technology. The result? A collection of foundations that effortlessly enhance your natural beauty and boost your confidence.

In 2020, we expanded our commitment to skin health with the launch of Issada Clinical Formula, a clean cosmeceutical skincare range. Our promise is to provide safe, effective ingredients to treat, protect and enhance your skin.

We focus on using high-quality plant extracts, vitamins, peptides and antioxidants combined with premium 100% natural minerals, such as titanium dioxide, iron oxides, and mica, in our makeup. The result is nourishing makeup that feels light and smooth and offers beautiful, buildable coverage—all without compromising your skin.

Our foundations are carefully designed to be suitable for all skin types and concerns. We understand that each person's skin is unique, which is why we've curated a range of mineral foundations that offer versatile solutions to enhance skin and your desired finish.

Explore Our Diverse Range

  • Liquid Mineral Foundation: Our Mineral Velvet Cream is Australia’s first (and best) liquid mineral foundation. A bestseller in the Issada foundation range, this breathable, medium-full coverage liquid foundation perfectly conceals pores, hides blemishes, and evens out skin tone. Our buildable, triple-whipped cream visibly corrects and smooths skin while leaving a flawless finish. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and vitamins A, C, and E, this foundation is vegan-friendly, suitable for all skin types (including those who suffer from acne) and available in twelve shades. 

  • CC8 Cream: The intersection of skincare and makeup, our multitasking CC formula is a tinted moisturiser and liquid foundation all in one. Providing a hydrating dewy finish that will correct, nourish and protect in one step, this everyday essential restores and revives tired skin while also boosting radiance for a youthful, glowing complexion. Our CC8 cream is enriched with hyaluronic acid, licorice root extract, and vitamins A, C, and E and provides a buildable sheer-medium coverage. 

  • Mineral Foundation Stick: The Issada Mineral Prostick is a hydrating, creamy, buildable coverage solution infused with botanicals, antioxidants, and minerals. This semi-matte all-rounder can be used as foundation, cream contour, matte highlighter, or concealer for various coverage needs. Unlike many other stick foundations which can be drying to the skin, our ProStick is rich and nourishing, gliding on beautifully and effortlessly for the perfect hydra-matte finish. 

  • Mineral Baked Powder Foundation: Our unique mineral baked powder foundations are slow-baked for 24 hours and deliver an ultra-velvety, matte finish upon contact with the skin. Enriched with botanical ingredients and available in five skin-adapting shades, they are a staple for acne sufferers, those with oily or combination skin or anyone searching for a silky matte finish. Can be worn alone or paired with one of our foundations. All minerals used in our range are non-pore-blocking, allowing the skin to breathe and sweat to escape. 

  • Mineral Luminous Loose Powder Foundation: This non-comedogenic mineral formula provides buildable coverage with a luminous, radiant finish. Providing a flawless glowing complexion, this foundation is perfect for dry to normal skin, delivering a youthful, dewy appearance. Wear it by itself or pair it with one of our foundations.
