Does your skin get dull and lifeless with the change in weather? If so, illuminate with IllumiKate – Kate Somerville’s new CC Cream. This multifunctional tinted complexion correcting cream instantly minimizes the look of imperfections with buildable coverage. Broad spectrum SPF 50+ protects skin from the sun’s harmful rays while known brightening agents Arbutin, Licorice Extract and Natural Amino Acids help improve and even out skin tone for more luminous, younger-looking skin over time.
- Provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+ / PA+++ sun protection
- Albatin, Licorice Extract, and naturally occurring Arbutin help to brighten the appearance of discoloration
- Moisturizing Sodium Hyaluronate minimizes water loss and improves the appearance of skin
- Chicory Root Extract helps to improve the integrity of the skin’s natural barrier function
IllumiKate is a little thicker than your everyday face lotion and is extremely moisturizing. It blends well and offers light coverage with minimal build-ability. The dewy, “luminous” finish truly wakes-up the skin and provides healthy, fresh looking skin. There are five shades of IllumiKate, ranging from Extra Fair to Medium, so this product might not work on deeper skin tones.
If your winter skin needs an instant pick-me-up, try Kate Somerville IllumiKate CC Cream.
NARS Illuminator in Orgasm was used at many shows for Fashion Week Spring 2012. This complexion enhancer makes skin look instantly refreshed, radiant and glowing.
Joy Cioci used this product to create a doll-like, dewy complexion. Daryl K sported contoured cheeks and glowing sun-kissed skin and Thakoon paired it’s strong brow with luminous skin all using this NARS Illuminator.
To achieve this look, apply NARS Illuminator in Orgasm to the skin before foundation. This will create a more natural look and blend nicely with the base used. Concentrate the product on the cheekbones and brow-bones, if overdone, this product can make the face look greasy and/or sun-burnt. But, if that is the look you are going for – do it!
