#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITYHOLIDAY!!!

Hi beautiful – how are you guys doin? I hope you all had a nice Friday night and you guys were safe and smart! and have some amazing weekend plans! I went out last night with some friends from high school and it’s so amazing to see how much their lives have changed – my one friends just had her second child and I thought too myself wow that seems absolutely crazy! But you know what, it really isn’t sometimes I forget that I am 27 years old and when my parents were younger then me they had a full house, three kids who they loved and took care of, it’s just so crazy to think sometimes how different things are from back then till now. It’s like penny who? What is heck is a penny! I’ve always said no matter what, time will always keep pushing us forward until one day we ask ourselves where did the time go?

Moving on
too my UK favourite brand illimasqua – they are so amazing and they’re all about makeup for your alter ego but what they would be famous for would be there Skin Base foundation which is a company staple item, I don’t think it will ever go bye-bye  but more recently they all the top artists and makeup artists have been using their primer Veils – Which comes in ➡️ Hydra Veil ➡️ Matte Veil ➡️ Beyond Veil and a little bit more recently is the Beyond Powder – Which is recognized on a global scale for its ability to blind you with shine but also it’s extremely different texture, hence ‘Beyond Powder’ they also come in a variety of shades so no matter your skin tone you shouldn’t have any issue finding what works for yourself.

Beyond Veil is an exhilarating partnership between two of Illamasqua’s iconic products: the intensely moisturising Hydra Veil and the metallic, illuminating Beyond Powder. The new unique, light-weight gel formula instantly rehydrates skin to give a natural, glowing finish where skin appears illuminated from within.
Formulated with multi-active ingredients, gardenia florida fruit extract and sodium hyaluronate help skin to retain a youthful look whilst haematococcus pluvais extract and vitamin C help to improve skin elasticity and brightness. I cannot say enough good things about this Beyond Veil its absouloutly what your skin and beauty routine needs, the iridescence to the formula is just so pretty.

Part hydrator, part primer, Hydra Veil instantly hydrates and smooth’s skin through a self-levelling, futuristic clear gel. Microalgae, Vitamin C and B3 work together to help maintain skins hydration levels, creating a healthy looking, balanced finish. Plant extracts also provide a calming and refreshing feeling, leaving skin fully prepped to apply your chosen foundation.

An oil control primer, Matte Veil preps the skin to create the perfect matte base for make-up application. It’s mattifying cream-gel formula absorbs excess oil whilst retaining the skin`s natural moisture levels, providing a silky, soft finish. Enhancing make-up longevity, Matte Veil also controls shine throughout the day and into the evening, keeping skin feeling healthy and balanced ➡️ this primer truly keeps the oil away so much so that I even laid down Matte Veil and then a face-oil and tried to mix them and no matter what way or how face I mixed the oil wouldn’t mix with the product or it encased it its on little tomb of some kind.

Last thing I want to talk about because I am so happy about this and I have been saying since I was introduced to the company years ago is they need a liquid version of concealer for under the eyes and to conceal any redness on your face but just like Skin Base foundation is that full skin like coverage and finally they have the Skin Base concealer Pen with a cooling metal tip to further help with tired morning eyes or bags – it feels amazing, the formula is so beyond amazing! With Vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant that will effectively help to fight against free radicals, including the ones caused by UV light. This concealer, containing pro-vitamin B5, will help the moisture balance of the skin, allowing it to become softer, smoother and more elastic.
