Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation. Inspired by BB Creams

I’ve heard the new Illamasqua foundation several months ago and I am happy to have all the details finally.

The most interesting thing about it is that it is inspired by ” the cult Asian market Beauty Balm creams, Skin Base Foundation is a brand new, refined formula unlike anything on the UK market. The ultimate ‘skin realism’ foundation.”

This gorgeous look is created by National Make-up Artist Clare Lille  and the products that were used, besides the new foundation, are: Cream Pigment in ‘Dab’, Powder Blusher in ‘Hussy’, Precision Ink in ‘Glister’, Eye Brow Cake in ‘Peak’, Sheer Lipgloss in ‘Tantrum’

Manicure is created  by Marian Newman, she used  Nail Varnishes in ‘Scorn’ [matt black] and  in Jo’Mina [lilac].

And I really love what is written about this new foundation, sounds like an amazing product, just see for yourself:

Eyes Of The Day With Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge

I promised to show you how Illamasqua’s Liquid Metal in Surge looks like on the eyes so here is the photo. My aim was to show you the easiest way you could wear it, the one you can create even when you have minimum time in the morning. But with Illamasqua products you can create so many looks, you just have to use your imagination 🙂

So here are the products that I used:

  • Korres Eyebrow pencil #2.
  • Light eye shadows under the brows and to all over the lid, I used MAC skintone 1 which is a LE.
  • Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Surge.
  • NARS shadows in Night Clubbing which is one of my favourite  eye shadow and you can see the swatch here.
  • Hypnose mascara by Lancome.
  • Le Crayon Khol by Lancome in Brun Noir which is my HG, review here. I used it on the eye waterline.

So what do you think? Would you try such look? I’ve already tried some very creative looks using Surge but wanted to share the easiest one with you. The one you can wear every day and spend minimum time creating it.

You can get Illamasqua from Selfridges.
