We’ve got a special treat from Illamasqua giving Flavourmag readers a free highlighting buffing brush when you buy any of the ‘Beyond Powder‘ range from Illamasqua, using code: FLAVOUR
Proudly boasting over 100 vegan makeup lines, Illamasqua is an iconic cosmetic brand renowned for being 100% cruelty-free and celebrating beauty in all of its weird and wonderful forms.
Think light-as-air loose setting powders, colour rich lipsticks, sultry nail polishes, slick eyebrow gels, fluttery false lashes and pearlized highlighters to boost those cheekbones like a pro.
llamasqua is the embodiment of highly professional, theatrical make-up artistry. Each high-end product is expertly created and packaged in chic boxes for the makeup lover with exquisite tastes, and a penchant for the sublime.
Inspired by the 1920s Berlin theatre industry, where highly pigmented, long-lasting professional cosmetics were used to make up the faces of elegant actresses, this quintessentially British beauty brand exudes the film star glamour of yesteryear, whilst retaining a mysteriously understated undertone.
We love how this effortlessly elegant makeup brand supports meaningful causes, such as the #smearforsmear campaign – an online movement to highlight the importance of preventing cervical cancer and remind women to book those vital smear tests. Ilamasqua also raises awareness and funds for the Sophie Lancaster foundation against prejudice, hate crime and intolerance. What’s not to admire about this cult cosmetic company?
At Flavourmag, we adore their must-have, high tech primers, which create the perfect canvas before their silky foundations effortlessly smooth out almost any skin tone and hide those pesky imperfections.
One of our favourite primers has to be the Beyond Veil – a clever concoction involving two of Ilamasqua’s cult products – Hydra Veil and Beyond Powder. This light, gel-like formula instantly hydrates the skin, whilst prolonging the life of your foundation and illuminating your complexion – perfect for those cheeky late-night selfies. Instagram filters? Pah! Who needs them?
Only had three hours sleep last night and need to look fresh and fabulous for that all-important client meeting or hot dinner date? Get your hands on Illamasqua’s highly desired concealer (tested under harsh film set lights) – simply pat and blend the product lightly under the eyes, either with your fingers or their special concealer brush, and those harrowing dark circles will be all but a distant memory.
Illamasqua is also beloved for their wide range of professional makeup brushes – all made using premium synthetic hair, and so are completely cruelty-free and suitable for vegans. Their Highlighting Buffing Brush allows you to apply foundation for a flawless finish and perfect contour with the brand’s illuminating highlighters. The slick eyeshadow brush is specially designed to be used with both cream and powder eyeshadows, for mesmerising eyes that demand a second look.
Festival-season is finally upon us, so why not add a touch of sparkle to your face with Illamasqua’s Beyond Powder in Dynasty – a metallic, golden hue that mimics the warmth of the sun’s rays.
We’re obsessed with how the silky-smooth powder glides effortlessly over the skin and leaves an iridescent, majestic glow. Use it to create an all-over illuminated finish or apply with more precision as a targeted highlighter. Smooth it on where the light naturally graces your skin – on the top of the cheekbones, brow bones and even summer-ready collar bones.
We apply the product dry for a sheer, natural bronzed shimmer or use a wet brush for a more dramatic, shimmery finish.
Get ready to shine with Illamasqua and put your best face forward…
