From a girl lacking in makeup experience.
The products I’ve bought and what I think about them as a person with fair, dry/oily depending on the day skin.
The type of makeup that I’m interested in is the kind that looks like it’s barely there. I’m the type of girl who can’t wear eyeliner, contour or shade in my eyebrows because it makes me look absolutely crazy. (I even wiped off all of the makeup a professional did on me at my sister’s wedding because the eyeliner just did not do it for me).
For years I’ve been using all and only Bare Mineral products, but this time at home has allowed me to branch out and find some clean makeup that I thought would work for my skin…and I did with Ilia.
These are the products I bought and loved:
Ilia True Skin Serum Concealer (Chicory & Lotus)
These two tones work best with my skin. The chicory for under my eyes and lotus for under my cheek bone and forehead shading. Both are very simple, light and dewy on my skin.
This mascara is not going to make your eyelashes look full. The look of it is very subtle and modest (I don’t love the look of too much mascara so this is perfect).
This foundation was a perfect match for my skin in combination with the concealer. The foundation does not have a strong smell, is light on the skin and also has a dewy look. I normally struggle with redness on my cheeks and this foundation covers it no problem. Highly recommend!
I am a huge fan of liquid highlight and this product is magical. I use it on my cheeks at the end of my makeup routine. I don’t normally do anything with my eyes besides mascara, but a little bit of this highlight on my eyelids brightens my eyes.
The color haze product brings a subtle color to your cheeks. You can blend this product to easily be light or you can make the color more apparent if you like a stronger blush.
The Ilia products have been a spontaneous surprise. Each product is light, not super expensive compared to other brands and has been good to my overly sensitive skin. I WILL be buying more products from them as they come out. The prices are fair and I feel good knowing that the products I’m using are clean and good for me.
