Illamasqua’s NEW Hydra Veil… What is it? 

Unfortunately I couldn’t make it to Illamasqua’s NEW Paranormal Collection launch this month (the second launch I missed this year!!) However I have managed to read many different beauty bloggers/make-up artists reviews on the collection and scanned Twitter from the launch to keep up to date with the new collection which once again Illamasqua encourage self-express and with Paranormal it encourages individuals to unlock a new personal and creative journey with their new water resistant eye and face products, ultra violet nail varnishes and violet-hued two toned lipsticks which I will blog separately about. One thing from the collection I wanted to blog about today was their NEW Hydra Veil Rehydrating gel which everyone has been talking about.

Hydra Veil rehydrating gel has been known to ‘Create a radiant finish with Hydra Veil’s instantly rehydrating gel formula. It provides the optimal base for your make-up.’ Retailing at for £27 and comes in a 30ml tub. I have been testing this product every day since I got it and I have also used it this week on two models which made my Illamasqua Skin base go on effortlessly. So here is why I love it, its uses, how to apply and what Hydra Veil does:

*It comes with a little spoon for you to scoop the product out, much more hygienic than fingers which he smallest amount goes a very long way and looks professional when working on Models/Clients

*It completely stops foundation and makeup from creasing, fading, caking and separating. -It’s excellent if you have trouble with makeup creasing under your eyes or separating around your nose and works wonders with Illamasqua Skin base as It re-textures your skin, no matter how uneven it is. Foundation won’t cling to dry patches or blemished areas.

*It’s a jelly texture (reminds me of real jelly ) which can be used alongside your usual skincare routine, in between your serum and your moisturiser.

*It works because of tiny micro particles that can penetrate quicker and deeper into the skin to deliver the active ingredients deep into the skin cells. These then work to target visible signs of premature ageing: dark spots, lines and dull skin, delivering visibly younger, more luminous and ‘replumped’ skin.

* The Collagens within Hydra veil helps stimulate the production of elastin fibers to make the skin firmer and smooth.

*A water-based product, so use it with water-based foundations.

One thing which is like magic with Hydra Veil is when you chop up the jelly texture product and scoop what you need you need the most remarkable thing is that the rest of the product slowly reforms back into a smooth even state as you can see in the above pictures! Make-up is Science!

Have you tried Hydra Veil yet? If so what do you think? I actually think is going to become a cult products from Illamasqua!
