      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I use this product in the "Light" shade as my whole face foundation. I am oily with redness and larger pores. I always wash/moisturize first with a lightweight moisturizer and use a primer. I have tried 3 different primers with this makeup and the result is always the same. I even tried keeping it on with the Urban Decay Up All Night setting spray and DeSlick. I CANNOT make it last. I have to touch it up within 2 hours of application. However, I do love how it makes my skin look when I first apply it.. airbrushed, smooth and gorgeous with alllll my redness covered! But, within two hours it seems to melt into my skin and it makes my pores look MASSIVE. I will put up with it though because of all the skin-loving ingredients and the fact that it IS easy to apply....its not like touching up is hard.. Just wish I didn't have to do it as often. When I use this powder foundation I don't even have to use concealer! This could just be my skin, if you have dry or combo skin this could possibly be absolutely amazing for you!

                Amazed that it works well on oily skin and does not show fine lines and wrinkles like other brands do. Just wish there was a shade between medium and light.

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!!! We are more than happy to help you with this today!!! If you feel the Medium is too light and washes you out, we first recommend trying to use a bronzer to warm your face up rather then go darker with your Foundation! If your foundation is too dark - you can end up looking orange and get that line of demarcation under the chin. So, it is best to use a bronzer and make sure you blend down your neck and chest!

                      We hope this helps!!

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!! These are great questions and we are more than happy to assist you today!!! The Celebration Foundation Illumination is great for oily skin as it not only helps hydrate your skin but it also helps control any oils!

                      We say that this foundation is buildable to full coverage as the coverage you get depends on the amount you use, so you do have some control over how heavy it looks!! It’s truly 30 seconds to full coverage and illumination to your skin! This Illuminating formula features the same good for you, skin loving ingredients you have come to know and love with the original Celebration Foundation, but with the added element of Illumination to add a subtle touch of radiance to your skin.

                      We hope this helps!!

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!! This is a great question and we are more than happy to help you with this today. Yes - the Celebration Foundation Illumination does work well over a moisturizer! The only thing we suggest is that once you apply the moisturizer that you wait a good 2 minutes for it to fully dry and set before applying the foundation. If you get moisture on the brush or sponge and then it transfers to the powder, it could cause a glazing issue! Hope this helps!! XOXO

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!!! We absolutely recommend using a brush!!! And we recommend either the Dual Foundation Brush or the Flat Top Brush!!! Both are amazing and apply the foundation flawlessly. With the Flat Top you simply buff the foundation on in a circular motion and with the dual foundation, you can use the larger end for all over and the smaller end for those harder to reach places! Hope this helps!!! XOXO
