COSMO BEAUTY AWARDS
Best Under Eye Concealer: Illamasqua Skin Base Lift
Described by Cosmopolitan’s Beauty Writer, Cassie Powney, as a product that ‘makes dark under eye-shadows vamoosh’, Skin Base Lift shot to the top for the Best Under Eye Concealer award in the inaugural Cosmo Beauty Awards. Tested by the magazines beauty team and a panel of industry experts, the final judgement was that ‘late nights can be your well-kept secret’ with its easily blend-able, crease resistant peach toned formula.
WOMEN’S HEALTH FUTURE 50 BEAUTY AWARDS
Best Make-Up Brush: Illamasqua Blush Up Brush
Blush Up Brush’s ultra-unique, innovative design was described in the Women’s Health awards as ‘a keeper’ by judge Sam Chapman, one half of YouTube vlogging duo Pixiwoo. This is the debut awards for the health and fitness magazine and we are overjoyed to have secured the win for Best Make-Up Brush, especially with a tool that challenges convention. The judging panel felt ‘the specially cut hairs help to sculpt the face and the unique space allows for precision blending and contouring.’ We couldn’t describe it better ourselves!

Best Illuminator: Illamasqua Gleam in Aurora
Best Primer: Illamasqua Matte Primer
Best Finishing Powder: Illamasqua Loose Powder in 010
To end the year on a high, we were overjoyed to receive three surprise award wins in Woman Magazines Hot 100.The established beauty awards covered 40 categories this year, with Illamasqua the only brand to secure triple victory.
First up for the Best Illuminator prize, Woman awarded Gleam in Aurora, stating it to be a ‘fab creamy highlighter to lift your complexion’. Following this was Best Finishing Powder, which our kit essential Loose Powder in 010 bagged. International Make-Up Artist and panel judge, Daniel Sandler, described this product as ‘the perfect invisible veil to set your make-up so it lasts all day.’ Thanks Daniel!
Finally, to seal the treble triumph was Matte Veil winning the Best Primer category. This latest innovation to our Veil Collection was described by award panellist, M&S Beauty Buyer Louisa, as a primer that ‘plumps up skin creating a super-matt canvas to prep any make-up looks. Love, love, love!’ Thank you Louisa – we’re glad you love it – it’s one of our favourites too!
