When I worked at Myer during uni, I remember seeing the most beautiful Illamasqua boys and girls working at the counter. My colleague and I were constantly admiring this one boy who always wore the most beautiful face of makeup by Illamasqua. I cannot believe it took me so long to try the products, however thanks to Ry.com.au I finally have the opportunity to test some of Illamasqua's most highly regarded products and created a glowy look.
ILLAMASQUA HYDRA VEIL PRIMER - $57 via Ry.com.au
There is a reason why this product is SO highly rated across the web. I don't generally prime, I think of my day cream as a primer, bad isn't it? After using Hydra Veil I realised how much BETTER my foundation applied and the level of glow I was able to achieve with ultra hydrated skin. This primer is lightweight, smooth and applies like a dream, it posses a jelly like consistency. You can use the spatula that is included with the product to scoop out the precise amount. If you have dry skin, hate patchy foundation and looking for a new primer, this could be for you.
ILLAMASQUA RICH LIQUID FOUNDATION - $55 via Ry.com.au
Illamasqua was not kidding when they named this foundation "Rich Liquid Foundation". This may possibly be the most high coverage foundation I own, a TINY small dollop was enough for my whole face. When I first went to swatch the foundation I applied 1/8th of a pea size on my wrist and it just kept blending. The coverage is phenomenal, I couldn't see any of my freckles and did not need any concealing. I did find this foundation to give off a lot of powder following an application, perhaps it's better designed for oily skin? If you are looking for a high coverage foundation, check this out because it's ultra long lasting. Since my skin was so well hydrated it didn't really cling onto dry spots or fine lines (I am also blessed to have barely any), however if you have dry skin I would recommend you to prep your skin extra well before using this foundation.
In case you are wondering the shade I used is RF140
ILLAMASQUA BEYOND POWDER in OMG - $57 via Ry.com.au
The name really says it all, this powder is BEYOND your usual powder and the effect is OMG.
This powder can be lightly dusted all over your face for a subtle luminous look, or applied as a highlighter. For my glowy look, I did both (you can really see it around my cheekbones and brow bone)! Try layering the product for a more intense glow, or apply one layer for a more natural finish. I am absolutely in love with this powder - highlight is on fleek!
