Danessa Myricks Enlight Aura Illuminator in Tranquility & Love

Usually I am not a big fan of loose powdered products because let's face it... They are so messy! But when a product blows my socks off... well it's worth it!



Danessa Myricks Enlight Aura Illuminators came to my attention at IMATS London and I got slightly obsessed. She has a wide range of colors, and everybody could find one that suits their skin tone. Also the shades are rather unique, but still really wearable and the products are super pigmented and easily build-able: starting from a soft sheen to extreme out of this world shine.



When I first swatched the shade Tranquility, I thought it will be way too sparkly for my liking. It does have some visible micro glitter but looks so smooth on the skin. I used it for a closeup beauty shoot just recently and glitters did not pick up in the camera, just super dewy almost wet looking finish. Also it worked like a dream as a inner eye corner highlight. It has quite a strong cool pink color tone and really strong cool pearly particles and works really well on fair to light medium skin. I would suggest mixing it with a darker shade if you really want to use it on darker skin tones then that.

Enlight Aura of Love Illuminator is a stunning rose to gold duo-chrome with super smooth shine particles that does not look at all glittery, but super glowy. If used on very light to light skin tones, the pink picks up too much to my liking, but when used on tanned to dark skin tones, it looks goddess - like shine.

Here I blended sheered out the highlighter to see how soft it can be.

The versatility of this product is endless, you can use it on the face, eyes, lips, body.... Mix it with other products, use it wet- whatever your creativity tells you to!

The magic product: Illamasqua Cream Pigment

These little magic boxes filled with a creamy colour are great multi-taskers. They can be used for a quick every day makeup or fulfill creative ideas and perfect to carry in a makeup artist bag.

This is what Illamasqua website says: This intensely colour-rich, matte and crease-resistant formula has been designed for use on the face, eyes, lips and body. Apply Cream Pigment with an Illamasqua brush or simply use your fingers for a build-able, water-resistant, highly pigmented finish.

So basically what you’re getting is a long lasting creamy product that is rich in colour, blends easily and can be used anywhere on face and body. Depending on the colour you can use them as colour correctors, blushes, eye shadows, lipsticks or whatever else your imagination wants to do with them. I have to warn you, if you have oily eyelids you will experience creasing, so using a shadow base and topping it with powder eye shadows would be a good idea, but if you have dry to normal eyelids, this products tends to stay in place just fine.

Illamasqua cream pigment emerge

My favourite one is peach coloured Cream Pigment ‘Emerge’ I actually have to of there: one in my personal makeup bag and in a professional kit. I use it almost exceptionally for colour correcting the under eyes. Since the texture is creamy but also non greasy and just a tad dry, they do a great job covering those blue/purple/brown under eyes with-ought looking like a caked mess. You need just a tiniest sheer layer to do the job and then I always top it up with my preferred concealer and powder. They also have a green and lilac shade for colour correcting.

illamasqua hollow

Second in line is ‘Hollow’, which not only makes a gorgeous neutral eye look, but serves as a great contouring product for those with a very pale skin. It is a light to medium brown with very cool undertones, so those who suffer from getting orange look from every contouring product, this would be a dream come true.

Since purple aubergine colours are my favourite when it comes to using bright colours, I of course had to pick ‘Depravity’, which I use for eye looks, lips, cheeks or and creative work. This colour is my favourite to look at but not used as much.

Yours truly,
