CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ILLAMASQUA
Hydra Veil Primer, £34
A backstage staple, this skin-quenching primer acts as both a hydrator and base to smooth and plump, with vitamin E and hyaluronic acid. Lightweight and fast-absorbing, it gives make-up a surface to cling to, while locking down moisture, so your foundation and concealer never cake or look flaky. After applying your moisturiser, brush on a thin layer, and skin will take on a dewy, refined glow, while pores remain visibly blurred.
Colour Veil Blusher, £20
Colour Veil stands out from traditional blushers. First, unlike traditional powder or cream blushers, it has a unique jelly-like texture. Second, the hydrating formula combines the intense pigment found in powder blusher with the innovative properties of Illamasqua’s Hydra Veil Primer. The formulation of Colour Veil – an industry first – offers a soft-focus, deeply-hydrating jelly with a powerful punch of buildable colour that’ll last all day.
Skin Base Foundation, £33
Weightless, yet tenacious, it’s no wonder Illamasqua’s Skin Base foundation is award-winning. The sheer formula skims the skin, rendering a clean, supple finish that hides everything, but feels like nothing. For best results, use a foundation brush, applying an even layer all over, starting from the centre of the face and blending outwards for optimum coverage.
Beyond Powder in Shade OMG, £34
Dubbed the Holy Grail of highlighters, this silky glow-giver in ‘OMG’ is loved by make-up artists and industry insiders, alike. With subtle shimmer pigments and a pearlescent glow, it looks natural on everyone. Swirl on with a large brush to enhance your cheekbones, lids and even your brow bone for a gleam that looks and feels believable.
Unveiled Artistry Palette, £38
Illamasqua fans won’t be disappointed with this suits-all palette. Featuring 12 wearable shades, the pigment payoff is impressive, with an intense finish that lasts for hours. Whether you opt for shimmer or satin, you can wear the colours solo, or choose a couple to blend together for a seamless smokey eye. A modern classic, you’ll want to reach for this palette time and again.
Mascara in Raven, £20
This should be your go-to for full lashes. The vitamin E laced formula feels thick but flexible, so it adds volume, while nourishing lashes at the same time. The oversized brush is a bonus too – coating every part of your lashes, you get full results in just one swipe.
Antimatter Lipstick in Bang, From £10
Forget sheer, barely-there nudes. This Antimatter range makes the most of dark plums and bold, bronze shades to take nudes to new levels. Each shade delivers an easy-to-wear matte finish with tenacious staying power – we made it through the day with just one retouch thanks to the silky formula that looks fresh and feels smooth. The shades work on everyone, but the nude-y brown of Bang looks particularly beautiful on most skin tones.
