THE BEAUTY SCOOP WITH… ILLAMASQUA

Illamasqua on Discover Beauty

Spent a FAB weekend with my BFF Nicola @nickloveslippy who works at cult beauty brand, Illamasqua, as Head of Communications. I thought I would abuse my friendship rights and insist she answer some questions for my blog whilst I snooped around her makeup bag at the new Once… Collection.

Illamasqua Discover Beauty

Here’s the scoop…

K: What are your 3 favourite Illamasqua products of all time?

N: Naked Rose Blusher, an everyday perfect natural blusher (pictured below). Skin Base Lift – an under-eye concealer that lightens and brightens. Precision Gel Liner – for the perfect black flick and as a smokey eye base.

K: What is the most expensive beauty product you have ever bought?

NLa Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask for £204.00 (WHAT!!) A massive, massive extravagance but literally one treatment later I believed the hype about it!

K: What is the one product you would cant live without?

N: Noooo I literally cant pick just one I have to pick 2 plus a brush! Illamasqua Masquara in Raven, Eye Brow Cake in Thunder and an angle brush to apply.

I’ve never tried the Precision Gel Liner for a smokey eye base so have just ordered it (to arrive Tuesday), after watching the makeup tutorial I cant wait to get into the studio and try it out!

Whilst routing through her travel case of makeup (yes she has that much!) I tried out the new Once… Vintage Metallix eyeshadows – OMG Im in love. I managed to ‘borrow’ the Bibelot Vintage Green which really set off my brown eyes.
