As you knowour October GLOSSYBOX is one not to be missed. Our very ‘Glossy’ take on Halloween is an ode to ‘The Beauty Tales’, a story about enchanting spirits and midnight fantasy that we can’t wait to share! 

We’ve already sneak peeked the first enchanting product you’ll discover in whichever of the two beautifully designed boxes that lands on your doorstep. And here comes number two...

The Ultimate Gel Primer 

Alongside The Beauty Crop’s blush duo, you’ll also be receiving the incredible Hydra Veil primer from Illamasqua.  

Part primer, part hydratorHydra Veil not only smooths your skin to create a base that’ll ensure your makeup lasts all day, but also boosts your skin’s hydration. This self-levelling, futuristic clear gel’s blend of microalgae, vitamin C and B3 work together to create a healthy looking, balanced finish. Plant extracts also give your skin a calming and refreshing feel, leaving your complexion fully prepped for your chosen foundation. 

How To Use Your Hydra Veil Primer 

Take the spoon provided in your Hydra Veil primer and apply one scoop of the product to the palm of your hand. Then, using either a foundation or highlighter brush or your fingers, gently apply the Hydra Veil to all of your face. Once the product has been fully absorbed, your skin is prepped and ready for makeup application.

The Perfect Base 

So, your face is primed and ready, but what other makeup products would work great alongside the  Hydra Veil Primer? These are our other Illamasqua must-haves for creating a long lasting makeup base... 


The latest addition to Illamasqua’s Beyond complexion range is the Beyond FoundationDesigned to create a dewy, glass-like base, this foundation provides sheer coverage that will enhance the natural appearance of your skin and create an illuminated glowThe replenishing ingredients in this foundation quench and hydrate. Hyaluronic Acid draws moisture to the surface of the skin to plump and hydrate, while Vitamin E helps to maintain a healthy-looking complexion. 


Add a pop of colour to your complexion with the Illamasqua Colour Veil. This product is an innovative, hybrid blusher which combines the long-wearing, intense pigment of a powder, with the innovative properties of the Hydra Veil Primer you’ll find in your October boxThis cheek colour has a soft, jelly texture that feels lightweight and refreshing when applied. Blending seamlessly onto skin, the pigmented blush also has self-levelling properties that ensure a fresh, airbrushed-effect finish with zero caking.  


For an expertly contoured look, the Sculpting Face Powder Duo from Illamasqua is a no-brainer. Combining a neutral matte shade for sharp definition and a shimmering champagne hue to highlight and illuminate, these blendable, buildable powders can be used in two ways. Apply the product dry for a natural finish, or wet for more intense colour.  Housed in a mirrored compact, these sculpting powders are also great for easy application on-the-go.

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
