Get the look key artist charlotte savoury

With all the excitement surrounding our NEW Summer collection, Paranormal, Illamasqua Key Artist Charlotte Savoury shows us how to use some of her favourite new products.

Eyes –

Highlight directly under the brow bone with a Concealer a couple of shades lighter than your skin tone and blend downwards with an Eye Shadow Brush.

Use Eyebrow Cake in your chosen shade and push upwards and outwards into the brow to define, using an Angled Brush.

Begin with a sheer wash of Gel Liner in Infinity over the lid focusing more towards the lash line and blend upwards using Blending Brush 1. Apply Eye Shadow in Trance ( a soft violet) from the Paranormal palette, over the eyelid and blend outwards and upwards towards the crease. Blend out through the crease and above with Eye Shadow in Aura ( a warm copper shade) with Blending Brush 1. To Highlight apply Pure Pigment in Furore to the inner corners of the eye using an Eye Shadow brush.

Line the waterline with Medium Pencil in Sophie and blend Gel Liner in Infinity below the lash line and set with Eye Shadow in Trance blending out to Aura with an Eye Shadow Brush.

Masquara in Raven is a must for your lashes as it is big and bold, so two coats will be more than enough. For added drama apply a pair of your favourite false eyelashes.

Skin –

Apply your chosen primer before your foundation, here Satin Primer has been used to create a more radiant glow. Apply your preferred Skin Base Foundation shade using a Highlighter Brush, in small circular buffing motions for a polished finish. You can highlight key areas with a Skin Base that is a few shades lighter than your Skin Base shade and a few shades darker to contour. Apply Loose Powder 010 on top to set.

Cheeks –

Apply Cream Pigment in Androgen and blend out with a Highlighter Brush over the apples of the cheeks and diffuse up into the temples. With a Highlighter brush sweep and blend Gleam in Supernatural over the cheeks to give warm to the skin with an iridescent finish.


Apply ESP lipstick over the lip with a Lip Brush.
