After cleansing and moisturizing skin, apply the ILIA True Skin Radiant Priming Serum to create a smooth, even canvas. Prepping the skin is the most important step when applying makeup and adding a primer will help your makeup stay all night long! Dispense 3-4 drops into hands and apply to face as you would a serum.


For a nighttime look with more drama, we like to start with the eyes to prevent smudging our complexion with any fallout from the shadows. To give eye shadow a base and minimize creasing, we started with a layer of the ILIA Liquid Chromatic Eye Tint in shade Fresco. Use the wand across the lid and blend outward into the crease using the Jane Iredale Large Shader Brush.


There are many ways to use the Jane Iredale Purepressed EyeShadow Palette, but to showcase all of the colors, start by applying the medium brown shade to the lid using the Jane Iredale Large Shader Brush. Blend and build out the crease with the dark brown and maroon shades using the Jane Iredale Crease Brush. The lightest shade can be brought up to the brow bone for a slight highlight and to blend out any harsh edges. Use the darker shades as a soft, smokey liner as well by applying them close to the lash line for added definition using the Jane Iredale Angle Liner / Brow Brush.

* Cleanup Tip: Take a q-tip with your favorite oil cleanser on it for areas where it's really messy before adding concealer!


Once you're happy with your shadow, finish off your eyes with a few swipes of mascara. The ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara stays put and has a unique comb-like brush that separates lashes, leaving them full and fluffy


Next, let's perfect the skin! We love using the ILIA True Skin Serum Foundation for a night out. It provides buildable light to medium coverage and is packed with skin-soothing ingredients, such as aloe vera, rosehip oil, and marula oil. Using the Vapour Foundation Brush, buff 1-2 pumps of product into the skin for a soft, airbrush-like finish.


To brighten up the eye area, use the Fitglow Teddy Double Conceal + Correct Brush to apply RMS 'Un' Cover-Up to counteract any dark areas. Use the smaller end to target any blemishes on the face.


Next, apply the Kosas Color + Light Crème Blush High Intensity in Velvet Melon. Using your ring finger, tap the coral shade onto the apples of the cheeks, and the champagne highlighter onto the high planes of the face - above the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and on the cupid's bow. These creams can be blended with fingers or with a soft brush, like the Jane Iredale Blending Brush.


Next, using the Vapour Powder Brush, set your look by dusting a light layer of ILIA Radiant Translucent Powder over your face, focusing on your T-zone to control oil and under the eyes to minimize creasing.


To groom and fluff the brows, we used the Kosas Air Brow Tinted Volumizing Treatment Gel in Medium Brown. Simply brush brows upward and out, following the natural direction of the hairs.

STEP 10:

Last but not least, finish off the look with a lip! We used ILIA Colorblock High Impact Lipstick in Rosewood for a soft, neutral mauve.
