Get The Glow: Illamasqua Radiance Veil Review

Hey Beauties!

Since Summer is pulling to an end and the days are getting darker and colder, it’s always good to add a bit of glow in your life and with the brand new Illamasqua Radiance Veil you can do that all year round.
Illamasqua Radiance Veil is a brand new product to its sister products Hydra Veil used for hydration and Matte Veil used for oil control. Radiance Veil as you might be able to tell is for getting that glow that we all want from our skin.

Radiance Veil comes in the standard packing for the Veil type products but the difference with this launch is the holographic effect which is meant to symbolise the glow. Radiance Veil creates a beautiful light that glows and radiates. As you can see from the images its a soft peach golden tone almost like seeing your skin softened in candle light, as it is a soft peach tone it means that it can be used by anyone from really pale skin right up to really deep tones making this product universal.

In addition to illuminating pearl pigments and Vitamin C, Illamasqua Radiance Veil also contains Acmella Oleracea extract, which is known for its instant smoothing effect and ability to boost skin’s elasticity and radiance so over time you should be able to see some sort of difference in the texture and look of your skin, Illamasqua is really big now on combining skincare elements into their makeup products also containing Vitamin E which is added to improve the skin’s level of hydration.

I’ve found that there are a number of different ways to use this product it isn’t like the other Veils that you have seen before by Illamasqua as this product can not only be used as a radiance primer used before applying your makeup and after your moisturiser but it can be mixed in with different foundations to boost the radiance, e.g if you had a matte foundation you liked the coverage of but it was a bit to flat for you then you could mix in some radiance veil to suit it more to your needs. Radiance Veil can also be used as a highlighter and illuminator over makeup, ive found that this works amazing ive used it on more than 5 different people all with different skin tones and textures and it has looked amazing!

I find that Radiance Veil looks good on anyone but there are people who it does look better on, with dry skin your skin is going to love this as i said above it contains hydrating properties so thats a big boost for your skin but also being a illuminating product this will give your skin that boost that you need as sometimes dry skin can be a bit flat and dull looking. With oily skin i find that you cant go overboard as your skin is going to look a little bit greasy so just use with caution is all i can say dont go crazy with it. If you do have oily skin try using Matte Veil first as a primer then adding this on top of your foundation in key points like cheekbones, down the nose, cupids bow etc

Illamasqua Radiance Veil* (£32) launches 10th September exclusive to Selfridges and then nationwide on the 24th of September. Find it online at illamasqua.com

  • I honestly never though that I would have to talk about this on here.

DON'T USE MAGIC ERASERS TO REMOVE YOUR FAKE TAN!! I saw this "tip" on twitter and researched into a little more and found tweet after tweet from people who had tried this and effectively gave themselves chemical burns! 
Household cleaning products are not meant for the skin they often contain harsh ingredients that will strip away and remove things.

I feel like we need to be really careful on who you listen to when on social media. Just because someone says something it doesn't mean it's a good idea and it certainly doesn't mean that you should try something that dangerous!

  • I know it might be tempting to follow a lot of these create your own DIY skincare routine or DIY face masks but in truth it's easier and more effective to just use properly formulated skincare product.

Trying to be all natural by using food as skin care doesn't work it's not effective and its unsafe I used to believe the whole DIY thing that was until I learned more about skincare and realised it was just better to eat the food instead of putting on my face 🤣

A lot of the ingredients that people say you can use on your face aren't actually safe for the face I once saw a DIY face mask recipe that called for cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and lemon to be mixed together and applied to the face. This recipe will literally burn your face off cinnamon and nutmeg are known irritants so is Lemon which contain a high level of ascorbic acid which will irritate the skin if left on for long periods of time not to mention the fact it's photosensitising so can lead to burns if you step out into the sun.

Not to mention you have no idea of the efficacy you literally have no way of knowing if these products will work or if you're essentially just making mud pies like you did as a child 🤣 you have no idea of the possible reactions either that's why it's just safer and more effective to use actual skincare products because at least you have some sort of idea how they are going to work and if you will get reactions .

  • I see this more and more these days! Celebrities and influencers saying "this cured my skin it's amazing" but then don't talk about the fact that they get monthly facials and use acids and retinol on a daily basis. Yeah I totally believe you it's down to that crappy physical scrub you used once 🙄😒 What's worse is when I see celebs/influencers promoting supplementation that isn't even proven to work! Supplementation is literally useless unless you are deficient. No your hair won't grow to super lenghts because you a gummy once a day.

Don't get me started on these "fit teas" that are essentially expensive laxatives .

  • I get asked if oily skin should moisturise a lot and I'm here to tell you it's a resounding  YES!

I know the idea of making your skin oily again doesn't sound like fun but hear me out. Stripping your skin won't do you any good our skin needs to contain oil it's essential for skin health.

By taking care of our skin and using a light moisturiser say in a gel form for example will actually help to cut down on the excess oil as your skin won't be trying to protect itself when you strip the oil away.. Its really interesting when you realise a majority of oily skin types are really dehydrated so we need to look for moisturisers that are light in texture and contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin etc. I personally love the @cliniqueuk Hydrating Jelly it's a great serum/moisturiser for oily skin.

  • (Originally uploaded to Live)

Check out the 2nd episode of weekly skincare routine video! i will hopefully be making these every Saturday at 8pm UK time! make sure to keep an eye out.
  • I hate to say it but skincare is not a quick fix you can't use a product 3 times and expect miraculous results.

I see a lot of people using products sporadically and then getting annoyed when they don't see any results even though it's only been about 4 weeks of use.

While hyaluronic acid serums will show results right away you will look plump and hydrated, HA is generally an exception to the rule.

A majority of actives will take time to show results. Take retinol for example you might see a small improvement early on but it can take upto 6 months for you to notice a profound difference.

You need to be consistent in your use just because something doesn't work right away it doesn't mean it's useless, we also have to manage our expectations as well sometimes we hope for too much and are let down by the results. 
Skincare can only do so much so it's important to have realistic expectations.

It might not look like much is happening to start with but you need to keep going you need to push past the idea of "this isn't working" 
Think to yourself why do you think it's not working? Are you using it often enough? Are you using enough product? What are your expectations? .
