Let’s Talk About Illamasqua! | Maddox Makeup Company

Illamasqua is one of my favourite makeup brands to use, both personally and professionally. I love how unique their stand point on creativity and design is, how they interact with their consumers and the customer service. The 2 later points may not seem like much if you regularly shop online but if you prefer to go old fashioned and shop in store for your products then it really matters.

Illamasqua in Liverpool, Met Quarter is my go to when I’m shopping for something new. The staff are very welcoming and informative in way that’s not intrusive, who knew that anybody could strike such a perfect balance?! I need a complete Illamasqua haul this month, below are all the products I need to renew ASAP and I’ll also tell you why I love them so much! This is a 2 part blog post, first up is base makeup and the second is eyes & lips!

Nothing Basic About The Base…

Skin Base Foundation

LogoLicious_20170708_210036.png

This foundation is amazing, it comes in 26 different shades with different undertones. I go through this stuff so quickly, I love using 01 and 02 for my complexion/highlight but in terms of work it has absolute staying power especially when set and it photographs so beautifully. It comes in at £33.00, if that’s a little steep for you try a small tester first before making your mind up; it’s worth the investment.

This formula is super lightweight and it’s enriched with Vitamin E and C, it goes above and beyond for a skin base! Tip: if you have dry skin and are worried about flaking just ensure to slather the moisturiser on 10 minutes before. Get yours here > Skin Base. 

 

Cream Foundation

You have no idea how sad it makes me that this product is completely sold out! It was a perfect texture to highlight and enhance the cheekbones, plus it contains powder so there was never any need to set it in place. It has STAYING POWER!

 

Gleam

Ugh! What can I say about this product… Well I can say that it is truly beautiful which makes me question why it’s only available in 2 shades. There’s so many different ways to use it, I love it as cheek & brow bone highlight as well as an all over base for under foundation for a glowing complexion. Again, this product is wonderfully lightweight and contains Vitamin E and Mica Mineral! Get one of the beautiful shades here > Gleam!

 

Cream Pigment 

Hello easiest way to colour correct in the world! Although you can use these pigments all over the face my fave thing to do with them is colour correct, it’s so simple and easy to use and highly blend-able. I like to dab a little on the skin and buff out with a soft brush and watch the product melt into the skin exactly how it should. Tip: Androgen, Dab & Depravity are the best ones for colour correction. Shop for them here > Pigment.

Top 7 Beauty Handbag Essentials | Maddox Makeup Company

What do you carry? Regardless of which handbag I chose to use on any given day there’s a list of things that I take with me, lovingly referred to as my top 7 handbag beauty essentials. I carry them with me at all times, without fail. Why? Well because it kind of brings me comfort knowing that at any time of the day should a beauty or skincare emergency arise, I know I’m covered.

There’s 2 common types of bags that I carry with me, the first being some sort of backpack and the second being a small over the body bag. Due to these reasons I like to keep every item as compact and portable as possible, whilst still being relatively cheap as I would kick myself if I lost an item otherwise.

Here are my top 7 recommendations for handbag essentials…

Hand Sanitiser

Personally I think that this should be right at the top of everyones list and it’s definitely at the top of mine. This Mango scented one from The Body Shop is amazing, its Triclosan free so it doesn’t dry your hands out as easily! It comes in at a steal of a price for just 2.50, pick one up here > Mango Hand Sanitiser.

Hand Cream

This hand cream has literally been my saviour at times! It’s super nourishing and treats and to 12 hour hydration plus it has a barrier against environmental stresses. It retails at 19.00 for 75ml, it’s so worth it! Grab yours here > Hand Cream.

Eye Drops

This is obviously personal preference but I always carry eye drops with me. The curse of having sensitive eyes! These one’s from Opticrom are amazing for treating my eyes when they are irritated, it’s a little life saver for me and for just 8.18 > Eye Drops.

 

Lip Balm

I take this lip balm with me pretty much everywhere, regardless of how much water I drink my lips are always still a tiny bit dry (on average I drink 2-3litres per day). This one is perfect as it’s intently moisturising and is enriched with water and aloe vera, get yours for just 99p now > Lip Balm.

Lipgloss

Although I constantly switch out the lipgloss I travel with on the daily, I find myself repeatedly reaching for Chelsea Girls from Nars. The colour is wonderfully neutral for me and it glides on effortlessly, leaving a non sticky texture, perfect! It’s available in 29 shades for 20.00, choose yours here > Lip Gloss.

Lip Liner

Rimmel’ Exaggerate Lip Liner is great, it comes in 10 different shades – my favourite is East End Snob! At just 3.99 you could probably afford to pick up a few if you decide that they are for you, one of my favourite drug store products, period. The creamy texture is amazing for just gliding on when your on the go, no need to blend and the twist keep makes it super convenient, grab one, or two, or three here > Lip Liner.

 

Shades

Lastly, the item that ties everything together for me… Sunglasses! There’s nothing more that I love than layering on a few lip products and throwing on a pair of shades, it’s effortless and looks classical (depending on the shades). My usual go-to’s are round or aviator shapes but you just do you!

My current favourites are these ones from Skinny Dip for 25.00 & these from Hawkers for 37.00.
