GO BEYOND: HOW TO GLOW THROUGH CHRISTMAS WITH THIS 2-STEP TUTORIAL

This Christmas is all about getting the glow no matter your festive plans. The good news? Our Beyond Christmas collection has everything you need.  

Inspired by the success of our Beyond Powder highlighter, this collection is an opportunity to give our customers more of what they love. One of our favourite gift sets does just that, combining two bestselling products in a shimmer finish perfect for the season.  

Our Beyond Eye & Cheek Glow Set includes Iconic Chrome and Beyond Powder Highlighter in universally flattering shades. Currently available in shades OMG, Deity and Epic, simply pick the colour you like best and get started. For a bronzed shimmer, use the Epic gift set, but if you’re seeking a golden glow, OMG will be better suited to you. Deity gives a beautiful light-reflecting glow with a soft pink tone.

An easy way to give your skin a radiant boost and make eyes sparkle, you can recreate the look from our Christmas campaign by following Pablo’s steps to THE glow of the season below.  

STEP ONE: START WITH THE EYES

Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, generously apply Iconic Chrome to the eyelids. This cream powder hybrid gives extreme colour pay off with a multi-dimensional finish. After applying to the eyelid, be sure to blend the powder eyeshadow out in the crease using a semi-circular motion.  

STEP TWO: HIGHLIGHT YOUR HIGH POINTS

Get a glow: using a fluffy brush, apply Beyond Powder to the high points of your face. After highlighting your cheeks pop any leftover highlighter onto your cupid’s bow to enhance your lips and make your lip colour pop.  

Still unsure about which shade to choose? Head of Training Mel Barrese shares her top tips for both kits. 

“OMG gives a beautiful light-reflecting glow from its champagne tone and works beautifully on all skin tones. Iconic Chrome gives you all the sparkle of glitter but without the mess. You can achieve a more precise strobing effect by using a small compact brush to pat onto the brow bones and/or the inner corner of the eye for a highlighted definition. Epic gives a beautiful light-reflecting glow with a golden, bronzed finish and works beautifully on darker skin tones. Epic Beyond Powder is an Illamasqua icon and for good reason. I like to use a big fluffy brush to dust along the decolletage, arms, shoulders and legs for extra sheen and radiance.”
