8 of the best Illamasqua makeup essentials
1.Illamasqua Skin Base FoundationLightweight and easily blend-able, the Skin Base Foundation from Illamasqua has incredible pigmentation for a flawless finish. With skin caring ingredients like Vitamin C and E, it also helps smooth and soften skin. Available in an incredible 25 shades, it is no surprise that is award-winning foundation is an Illamasqua bestseller. For the best results, use a buffing brush to apply in light, circular motions. You can then build up the coverage for your ideal finish.
2.Illamasqua Glamore LipstickWith an incredibly hydrating formula, the Glamore Lipsticks give Illamasqua's signature colour intensity whilst feeling amazing on the lips. These satin finish lipsticks are stocked in 11 shades, ranging from soft and pretty nudes like Tease to deep, juicy berries like Vampette. The smooth formula, enriched with Vitamin E, can be applied directly from the lip or, for extra precision, use a lip brush.
3.Illamasqua Hydra Veil PrimerThe Hydra Veil was inspired by feedback from Illamasqua's customers, who wanted their skin to be smooth and hydrated before applying their makeup. It is no surprise then that this has been a global bestseller. Crossing the line between skincare and makeup, the Hydra Veil is a self-levelling, clear gel which calms dehydrated skin and instantly smooths the skin thanks to Micro-algae, Vitamin C and B3. To improve the application and longevity of your makeup, just apply one scoop of the Hydra Veil into the palm of your hand before using a foundation brush to apply all over the face.
4.Illamasqua Cream PigmentThe Illamasqua Cream Pigments are a makeup bag essential, with an intense, colour rich formula that gives a matte, crease resistant result. These creams can be used on the eyes, face, lips and body. They intensify colour and help adhesion when used as an eye shadow base, and the colour range offers a wide variety of possibilities. The cool taupe of Hollow has been lauded as one of the best contour shades you can find, whilst the peachy Androgen has been used for everything from under eye colour correction to a bold pastel lip. The Cream Pigments can be applied with a long bristle brush for a sheer finish or with a flat brush for intense colour, wherever you choose to use them.
5.Illamasqua Precision Brow GelIllamasqua's Precision Brow Gel pots help give you defined, enhanced brows. The water-resistant creamy gel formula is simple to apply and lasts all day long. With 4 different shades, varying from cool to warm and light to dark, these suit all skin tones. For the best results, use an angled eyeliner brush to fill in your brows. For extreme detail and precision, apply in hair like strokes with the fine eyeliner brush.
6.Illamasqua Eye Colouring PencilA great eyeliner pencil is always an essential. The Illamasqua Eye Colouring Pencils offer a soft, blend-able texture for long-lasting definition. Use any way you like; as an eyeliner, softly blended into the eye crease for definition, or across the entire lid for an intense smoky eye.
7.Illamasqua Gel SculptThis a product unlike any other, so it is no surprise that the Gel Sculpt is one of the bestsellers from Illamasqua. A sheer contour gel, it gives an incredible natural shadow to cheekbones and the jawline. The shade Silhouette is the perfect cool contour tone and its gel formula glides onto the skin. Unlike bronze shades which can stand out, this blends to look just like a natural shadow. After putting on your foundation, apply Gel Sculpt with your fingers or a brush to your temples, hollows of the cheek and jawline before blending. It can also be dabbed onto the lips to deepen your natural lip colour.
8.Illamasqua Gleam HighlighterThe creamy, iridescent Illamasqua Gleam Highlighters give skin a beautiful natural glow. The highlighters come in 2 shades that work on a wide range of skin tones. Aurora is a pearlescent champagne, whilst Supernatural is a warm bronze. With Mica Mineral and Vitamin E, the silky texture of these cream compacts makes these ideal for strobing. A fine layer under foundation will brighten skin, whilst targeted application to the brow bone, inner eyes, cheekbone and cupid's bow will accentuate your bone structure.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
