The Blusher That’ll Transform Your Summer Make-Up Bag
CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ILLAMASQUA
Tell us more…
With harsh contouring taking a backseat this summer in favour of a softer, lit-from-within complexion, blusher has re-emerged as a make-up bag staple. Whether you’re a fan of powder or cream blusher, the new Colour Veil is one to try.
What makes this blusher different?
Colour Veil stands out from traditional blushers for a number of reasons. Firstly, unlike traditional powder or cream blushers, Colour Veil has a unique jelly-like texture. Secondly, the hydrating formula combines the long-wearing, intense pigment found in powder blusher with the innovative properties of Illamasqua’s award-winning 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 without caking.
How do you apply it?
The best thing about Colour Veil is that there are no rules. However, for a more professional finish, try applying with the Round Buffing Brush, £26; evenly distribute the product on the brush tips and apply where desired, moving across the skin in a stippling motion.
Where should you apply it?
The versatility of Colour Veil means it can be applied anywhere, but consider applying to the apples of the cheeks if you have an oval face, while those with a longer face can get away with applying colour higher up on the cheekbones. Want a lustful flush of colour? Apply to the bottom of the cheekbones and diffuse. After a more dramatic look? Apply to the very tops of the cheeks just below the eye sockets and blend around and up onto the temples.
What kinds of looks can you use it for?
There are so many looks that Colour Veil will work with. Whether you want a beautiful, minimal, ‘no-makeup’ makeup look with a natural pop of colour on the cheeks or a more intense and powerful look, its adaptability and buildable formula has you covered. Try building up layers of Colour Veil to create a more intense shade, or apply a number of different shades to create a bespoke hue. Don’t be afraid to try it on the lips and eyelids, too.
