The Edit

I Got It From My Mama

We had a chat with International Brand Ambassador Charlotte Savoury about her top products and tricks of the trade to treat the most important woman in your life.

What are your top 3 Illamasqua
products for using on Mum’s skin?

[mwi-product sku=”02280″ type=”add”] is my must have product for Mum’s makeup. It floods the skin with hydration immediately and helps retain the skin’s moisture.
This preps the face for a flawless base which is comfortable to wear and ensures your mum’s makeup stays put.
[mwi-product sku=”03203″ type=”add”] is a gorgeous soft coral shade which adds subtle warmth to the skin.

The finish of this blusher allows the skin to retain its glow and is perfect as a pop of colour on the lips.
[mwi-product sku=”03025″ type=”add”] is another must-have.
It’s perfect for highlighting under the brow to elevate it. It’s also perfect for using on the inner
corners of the eye to brighten and in the water line to reduce redness and brighten the eye area.

What is your best tip for creating a smokey eye?

A lot of my clients like to try something a little softer but still want statement makeup. I tend to swap blacks for rich plums and warm browns like our [mwi-product sku=”03169″ type=”add”] and our [mwi-product sku=”03412″ type=”add”] That way it’s a softer approach to a dark smokey eye. I also like to ensure the inner corners are a lighter shade to open and brighten the eye area, our [mwi-product sku=”03255″ type=”add” ] is great for this.

 

Which products would you recommend for creating a timeless lip?

To create a timeless lip I’d recommend using a lip pencil a shade or two darker that your natural lip shade. This way you can enhance your natural lip line and create a fuller looking lip. I would then fill in with one our best-selling Matte Lipsticks. This will ensure your timeless lip stays put all day. [mwi-product sku=”03083″ type=”add” ]is a perfect soft pink shade that enhances your natural lip colour and is great to team with multiple makeup looks.

How does skin differ in terms of the
type of base products that can be used?

Younger skin tends to be oilier so I would opt for a matte primer. [mwi-product sku=”03034″ type=”add” ] is perfect
for young oily skin as it comfortable to wear and controls shine.
For younger skin I would also set the T-Zone with a translucent powder. [mwi-product sku=”00119″ type=”add” ]
ensures the makeup stays put all day as these areas are prone to producing excess oil throughout the day.
As we age skin  can sometimes become a little drier so I would use [mwi-product sku=”02280″ type=”add” ] to flood the skin with moisture,
I would then apply [mwi-product sku=”03174″ type=”add” ] for a flawless radiant base.
To finish I would apply a fresh[mwi-product sku=”03203″ type=”add” ]to the cheeks to ensure the cheeks stay hydrated and hold their glow.

What is your Mum’s favourite Illamasqua product?

[mwi-product sku=”03005″ type=”add” ]! It’s perfect for touch ups when you’re on the go and great for setting liquid makeup for a fuller coverage. My mum also loves [mwi-product sku=”03084″ type=”add” ]. It’s a long lasting matte coral shade which she can wear with different eye looks and brightens the complexion, the perfect gift for Mother’s Day.
