Illamasqua’s Vegan Beauty Lowdown

At Illamasqua, we are continually finding ways to improve our range of vegan products, switching up and substituting ingredients in order to ensure that we can continue to produce vegan-friendly products whilst maintaining the highest quality.

There’s never a secret kept between our #illamafia so here are some of our top tips to up your game for a warm, autumnal glow with our choice of Illamasqua’s vegan products

1. Skin Base x Hydra Veil

Hydra-veil is a ‘kit-essential’ as the weather begins to change and keeping the skin hydrated is essential. Our Veil Primers have a range of benefits, making them a perfect staple for anyone’s make-up collection.

It can be used as a stand-alone, hydrating moisturiser to enhance the skin’s natural luminosity, or applied under our Skin Base foundation.

Allowing the consistency to become tacky before applying the foundation, the veil will hydrate, illuminate and prime the skin. What more do you need?!

TOP TIP

Apply Radiance Veil to the high points of the face and Matte Veil to your t-zone, this will prime your face whilst creating perfect natural radiance to the tops of cheek bones, forehead and provide oil control where needed.

I love how Hydra Veil brings a natural luminosity to the skin from within – Nilofar Mussa,The Illamasqua Art Collective

2. A Beyond Epic, Berry Lip

The highlight game has been to infinity and beyond this summer. Now autumn is coming, it’s time to warm it up a little. Take our Beyond Powder in EPIC to create a warm-toned autumnal glow and pair with a gorgeous berry Lip Lure in the shade ‘Jus’, because any excuse to wear a berry lip, right?!

TOP TIP

Apply our Beyond Powders on your cupids bow to frame and highlight your lip and create an outline to slightly over draw, this will make the lips appear fuller and more plump!

I’m 100% a lip girl and autumn is my favourite time of the year to embrace deeper shades – Nilofar Mussa, The Illamasqua Art Collective

3. A Whole Lotta Brow Envy

Eyebrows speak personality, whether you’re having a textured and undone Cara Delevingne or a sharp and ready-to-slay Jamie Genevieve day, our Precision Brow Gel and Angled Brush can give you just that.

This versatile combo enables you to create different day-to-night looks, from a naturally full looking brow to a totally going for it sharp and precise shape that will not budge.

TOP TIP

Dip our vegan-friendly Fine Liner brush into your brow gel and gently stroke individual hairs at the start of the brow to achieve the ombré effect!

 

I’m proud to say that as a small, UK based company we’re doing our bit to reduce animal suffering through refusing to test on them or using suppliers who do. The cruelty-free element of Illamasqua is a founding principle of our identity and exemplifies our love of beauty in all its forms – Julian Kynaston, Illamasqua Founder.
