1 FOUNDATION, 3 FINISHES

 

Why stick with one makeup look when you can have three? Our base products are some of our best-selling products, and there’s good reason why.

Not only do our primers contain unique ingredients to care for the skin, when paired with our Skin Base Foundation, they instantly transform your look. Whether you want your makeup to take you from day-to-night with our Matte Veil Primer, you need that extra hydration boost with our Hydra Veil Primer, or you want to glow from within with our Beyond Veil Primer: we have just the thing.

Instantly create three iconic looks with the help of our best-selling Skin Base Foundation and cult-favourite primers.

 

 

FIRST, BACK TO BASE-ICS…

First we need to tell you why Skin Base is your new favourite foundation (if it isn’t already!). Skin Base Foundation is the ultimate makeup artist formula whilst being perfect for the everyday makeup look.

With sheer to full buildable coverage, Skin base allows you to create the coverage you want whilst always keeping skin looking as natural as possible due to it’s ‘skin realism’ properties. The formula is also designed to smooth, soften and condition skin, without oxidizing or changing colour throughout the day.

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation

 

LET’S TALK INGREDIENTS…

Like all of our base products, Skin Base is designed to nourish the skin, whilst providing you with a professional makeup finish. Skin Base contains Mica, a mineral which helps to create a natural-looking, ‘alive’ skin. It also contains Sodium Hyaluronate which helps to really condition and hydrate the skin – perfect if you suffer from those pesky dry skin patches! Now for the best bit – it also contains Vitamin C which not only has effective anti-ageing properties but also helps to protect skin against free-radicals and damage caused by UV radiation.

 

 

When mixed or layered with different Veils, Skin Base Foundation can provide you with completely different skin finishes and coverage….

 

 

MEET THE VEILS

 

 

Skincare meets primer in one easy step! Our Veils are designed to provide hydration, create a smooth base for your foundation as well as ensuring your makeup stays put all day. Like the Skin Base Foundation, all Veils contain Sodium Hyaluronate which works to keep skin super hydrated by drawing moisture to the skin. Regardless of skin type, most people suffer from hydration, making these a perfect product for most skin concerns.

Available in three finishes, it’s time to expand your skin wardrobe.

YOU DO THE MATH…

 

HYDRA VEIL + SKIN BASE FOUNDATION = A NATURAL, SATIN FINISH

 

The name says it all. Part hydrator, part primer, Hydra Veil instantly hydrates and smooths skin due to its skin-nourishing properties. 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.

 

APPLICATION TIPS

STEP 1. Use the mini spatula to scoop out the perfect amount of Hydra Veil and then apply the product using your fingertips following your usual skincare routine, concentrating on the centre of the face and smoothing outwards.

STEP 2. For a natural and even coverage, we suggest applying your Skin Base Foundation with our Face Brush. Start by applying a small amount of Skin Base to the back of your hand and begin applying product to the face, again concentrating on the t-zone and working your way outwards, blending as you go along. For any problem areas that require slightly more coverage, warm a little Skin Base between your fingers and dab directly onto the skin using fingertips, such as around the nose, chin, under eyes and blemishes.

STEP 3. For the ultimate dewy, healthy finish – we suggest applying a small amount of Hydra Veil on top of your foundation. Again, scoop out a small amount of the product using the spatula and apply to the back of your hand. Then using your fingertips, very lightly dab the product on top of your foundation, concentrating on areas where you’d usually apply your highlighter, such as cheekbones.

BEYOND VEIL + SKIN BASE FOUNDATION = A NATURAL, SATIN FINISH

 

An exhilarating partnership between two of Illamasqua’s iconic products: the intensely moisturising Hydra Veil and the metallic, illuminating Beyond Powder. This unique gel formula not only instantly hydrates skin, it instantly illuminates the skin due to the soft metallic finish.

Formulated with multi-active ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate and Vitamin C help to improve skin elasticity and brightness.

 

APPLICATION TIPS

STEP 1. This formula can be applied to the skin before using your Skin Base Foundation, however for a sheer, tinted coverage we suggest mixing a spatula of Beyond Veil with half the amount of Skin Base Foundation. The two formulas melt together to create a sheer, super natural coverage.

STEP 2. We suggest applying with our Buffing Brush in circular motions, starting on the t-zone and blending the product out towards the hairline and neck. This will give you a nice even, soft application of product.

STEP 3. For extra coverage in certain areas, lightly dab on Skin Base Foundation using fingertips to warm product into skin and keep the finish natural.

MATTE VEIL + SKIN BASE FOUNDATION = A NATURAL, SATIN FINISH

 

This combination is perfect for those who want zero shine. Matte Veil turns Skin Base Foundation into a velvety smooth matte finish, ideal for normal, combination and oily skin types. Oily skin types not only struggle with too much shine, but any makeup product applied onto their skin will move throughout the day. Matte Veil will give a matte finish but it will also help with the long wear of foundation and all other makeup products applied on top of it.

APPLICATION TIPS 

STEP 1. This formula can be applied to skin before Skin Base Foundation, however, for a sheer tinted coverage we suggest mixing a spatula of the formula with half the amount of your Skin Base Foundation.

STEP 2. Apply products with our Face Brush to give a natural, even long-lasting finish. If you prefer fuller coverage, apply Matte Veil first, then build up your Skin Base Foundation on top until the desired coverage has been achieved.

STEP 3. For extra oil-control throughout the day, we suggest using our Loose Powder on the T-Zone to ensure zero shine and long wear from your makeup.
