The Edit: Illamasqua Must Haves…

IllamasquaSince 2008 Illamasqua has brought us a creative line of cosmetics which dared to be different, with an ethos promoting self experimentation, I delved in to the cruelty free brand’s must have products…


Hydra Veil

Hydra Veil is a sell out hybrid hydrating primer, with a consistency like nothing you’ve seen before. It contains Vitamin C, B3, and Microalgae which gives it its gel like texture. This smoothes on to the skin prepping it for foundation, but with added skincare benefits! Perfect for dryer, dehydrated skin types, I call this guilt free makeup when you know what you’re putting on your skin is good for you.


Beyond Powder in OMG

Highlighters you can never have enough, and you may just need to add this one to your collection! With its baked formulation it is extremely refined in texture, no chalky vibes! The shade is a warm hue of champagne, beautiful on all complexions. It has a natural glow pay off, you don’t see any sparkly glitter bits, which I love. Not just for the face, dust this on to your décolletage, and shoulders for an all over glow, use wet if you really like you highlight to pop!


Antimatter Lipstick in Nebula & Quartz

Something in between between a matte and satin finish, AntiMatter lipstick provides a creamy texture lip, with a long lasting finish. You need just one swipe of these to see the true pigmented colour. Nebula is a Barbie pink shade, with a cool undertone, everyone needs to own a pink lipstick like this for days when you want to make a fun statement and let your lips do the talking. Quartz I would describe as a neon coral nude, that’s right neon, it’s so bright it would make the perfect shade for summer.

Illamasqua is sold online here or in stores across the UK.
