Beauty Spotlight: Featuring FayeMakeup

Today on Beauty Spotlight we are thrilled to be joined by the amazing Faye from FayeMakeup on Instagram. Faye creates never ending amazing looks with Illamasqua products, so we wanted to find out which products she loves the most as well as a few other beauty tips. So I will hand over to Faye…


1. What’s your number 1 Illamasqua product and why?

I am in love with so many products; it’s so hard to choose! But I will have to say the Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner. I absolutely love this Gel not only it glides on so smoothly but it is water resistant and does not budge. Perfectly Matt and such an intense black it is my definite must have.

2. If you could create a look with purely Illamasqua products what would you choose?

I create so many looks with all my Illamasqua products it’s always endless but my every day makeup to go look is always with my Illamasqua Essentials. My Skin Base Foundation, Precision Gel Liner, Cream Blusher in Rude, Eyebrow Cake in Thunder and being a lover of pinks I finish it off with Fable Lipstick


Here Faye is wearing Cream Blusher in Rude.

3. Make-up aside, what do you do to take care of hair, skin and body?

Being a Makeup Artist and Hairstylist its always important to maintain a good and healthy daily routine for both Hair and Skin. For my skincare routine, I cleanse using Clinique soap following the Clinqiue Toner and then moisturise with my Aloe Vera Based cream from Forever Living products. My hair always gets treated to a twice a week head massage with Vatika Hair Oil, leave it on for a couple of hours and wash. The results are simply amazing!

As well as taking care of my Skin and Hair it’s a must for me to moisturise myself head to toe with my Palmer’s Coconut Butter on a daily basis.


4. If you could create a new Illamasqua product what would it be and why?

I think it will have to be a new Highlighter, I love creating a beautiful healthy glow on my clients and although I love my Gleam Aurora Cream Highlighter I think something powder consistency will be perfect so that you can just dust it on wherever you need to give that shimmer.

5. If you could pick 5 Illamasqua products to use over and over again what would they be?

My top 5 products I will always use over and over again:

Precision Gel Liner

Fable Lipstick

Skin Base Foundation

Boost Intense Lipgloss

Sealing Gel


6. As you know Illamasqua products are known to have multiple uses, what is your favourite Illamasqua product to use for more than one part of your make-up?

I love using my Pure Pigment in Furore over lips to create a perfect glam finish and my sealing gel to literally set everything from Eyebrow cake to applying pure pigments as eyeliner using the foiling method. Wet your brush on the sealing gel and dip your brush on your chosen eye shadow/pigment/glitter and there you have it. Eyeliner of any colour you want!
