Today in the beauty spotlight is the gorgeous Megs from Wonderful You! Megs has flawless skin and amazing hair so she really is the person to go to for beauty advice. We wanted to find out exactly what Megs loves to use, so we have asked her a few questions about what she loves from Illamasqua and how she takes care of her skin and hair! So I will pass over to Megs…
What’s your number 1 Illamasqua product and why? It has to be the infamous Skin Base foundation. It’s been a staple for me this year – suffering with badly blemished skin it’s fabulous for great coverage but gives a healthy glow that doesn’t get oily. I’m really quite in love!
If you could create a look with purely Illamasqua products what would you choose? Oh golly, if I could I’d pile every single product on my face – but that doesn’t bode well for a makeup look I feel? 😉 My trusty Skin Base foundation would have to be included, teamed with the hydra veil and skin base lift (which needs to be in my life immediately). Also a touch of the Satin Primer to give that little bit of extra dewy loveliness. For the eyes I’d love to get my mitts on the Complement Palette which will be perfect for a seductive Christmassy look – and I don’t go anywhere without my Precision Ink liner and Masquara. To finish off the eyes it would have to be the defined brows set. Scandal for the lips and Hollow to contour with the Peaked Velvet Blusher to finish! …I think I just died and went to Illamasqua heaven.
Make-up aside, what do you do to take care of hair, skin and body? I moisturise every evening with the Body Shop Moringa body butter, it’s my absolute favourite from their range and reminds me of my favourite Tom Ford perfume – Jasmine Rouge. Moroccan Oil is my hair care saviour and my skin routine is pretty hefty, but some of my favourite products are the Nude cleansing oil and Jurlique purifying cleanser – both perfect for balancing oily skin. Of course a cup of green tea each morning doesn’t go a miss to help keep you healthy!
If you could create a new Illamasqua product what would it be and why? I always find myself searching for the perfect lipstick and even when I discover a good’un it seems that not all the ‘ultimate lipstick’ boxes are ticked! So I would have to say, the perfect matte lippy.
If you could pick 5 Illamasqua products to use over and over again what would they be? I hate to sound like a broken record, but all of these are absolute gems… Skin Base Foundation, Skin Base Lift, Hollow Cream Pigment, Precision Ink and last but certainly not least the Loose Powder.
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 really love using my Skin Base foundation as an eyeshadow primer. It has such a gorgeous finish and doesn’t cake up in eye creases giving the perfect base for a smoky eye! Here’s a look I did a few weeks ago using my Precision Ink and Skin Base Foundation!
