    In the last few years my face has turned more and more red even though I have a olive completion. This makeup covers it up nicely and I also use their cream when I don't want to wear full makeup. Definitely recommend for anyone struggling with redness

    I read the reviews prior to purchasing this product. I was looking for a powder foundation to provide decent coverage to hide uneven skin tone. Bare Minerals does far better at less cost.

      Perfect product and never disappoints. I will not use anything other than IT Cosmetics; I know that I will be satisfied with each and every product I use. This foundation is light and doesn't make your skin greasy throughout the day. It stays on and I never have to reapply. If you haven't tried IT, I highly recommend you try it - you will not be dissatisfied.

              Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

              Ok, this is a great foundation on African American skin. I use the rich and it gives good coverage and looks natural. However, I only gave four stars because IT has inconsistent pigments. I have tried 3 different IT cosmetics foundations, all in rich and they were all competely different shades. I kept trying because everyone raves about the coverage. Finally this one was the correct shade. I would recommend this foundation if you can afford to buy and return a couple of times to get the correct shade.

                  I liked the Medium color so bought this for my tanner summer skin. Unfortunately I looked like an old gold-toned lady in it! Like I had highlighter all over my face, not natural looking at all. The color was good until the left got hit it and you could see the gold shimmery tone everywhere. Super fake looking. Returning it.

                      Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! Since Celebration Foundation Illumination is a powder foundation, IT is best applied with a flat top brush such as the Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Brush #6. This style brush head offers the most full coverage finish when applying powder foundation. You can shop IT directly through the link below! XOXO

                    I currently use the Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer in medium, and I want to use a setting powder with it (I tried the Bye Bye Pores Finishing Powder, but it was too dark/yellow and the texture was not for me).

                    Could I use the Celebration Foundation Illumination as a setting powder with my Bye Bye Foundation? And, if so, which shade would pair better with the medium Bye Bye Foundation--light or medium?

This brush is intended to touch ups or convenience on-the-go. We do advise using a flat top brush for best application, such as the Airbrush Buffing Foundation Brush #110. IT will apply Celebration Foundation Illumination with the most coverage! XOXO

                      Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! Confidence in a Cream does not contain SPF 50+ protection, so using this product underneath Celebration Foundation Illumination will not be beneficial for the SPF protection you are after. We do advise using a sunscreen directly on the skin prior to applying Celebration Foundation to get the most SPF protection. XOXO
