The V-Beauty Difference: You're Ready for Your Close UP

"Illuminating Complexion Fix"  Created by Veil Cosmetics

By Pikke Allen

Here's something we all need: A traveling foundation liquid with a little brush that covers all your little secrets. A product that will really stay there, without moving, smearing or gooping has been difficult for me to find. This is literally such a problem, that a hundred products have come onto the market to vie for your attention.  Then, during fashion week, I discovered this fantastic new product: The Illuminating Complexion Fix  that has been formulated by a make up artist, for illumination, skin brightening, and blending. Used on the fashion runways its been tested all over the world. This is one of the main problems a make up artist must solve when making up hundreds of models for camera.  The undereye area and spot correction that will not only last under the lights, but look flattering and fresh all day.   

This is a product that is similar to the Yves Saint Laurent "Touch Eclat" that I have also used. "Touche Eclat" was the first of its kind and certainly set a standard, but other products have come onto the market that have improved on it.  So, while the delivery and application are the same, the difference of the Veil Cosmetics product is remarkable.  The treatment dynamics and ingredients used to create this patented "Lightfast Technology", will give you many benefits while you're busy hiding those little flaws. Moisture enhancing, fading of those annoying spots and a lovely light reflecting technology. The "Touch Eclat" version did not wear well during the day and needed to be re-applied every few hours. With the Veil Foundation, you can apply this in the morning, set it with a light tranclucent powder if desired and then apply your mascara directly afterwards. Now, you can look at good as the models on the runway when the iphone flashbulbs pop!

The price is comparble to Yves Saint Laurent, about $36.00 and comes in an array of face matching tones, 9 to be exact; so whether you are an ivory, fair, medium or Tan there is a selection of undertones such as Neutral, Pink, or Golden. The ingredients are Hypo-Allergenic, non-commdogenic.
