Despite being a makeup artist for over a decade, I had never used Kryolan up until recently - which is bizarre, because a lot of artists use this brand during their makeup courses, but there was something that felt too “PRO” for me. But, to quote Pretty Woman, that was a big mistake. Big. Huge.
Why Kryolan Isn't *Just* For The Experts:
Although it’s marketed as a pro artist brand, Kryolan actually has some incredible products that are super wearable and can easily fit into your daily makeup routine, even if you're a novice. Think professional-level quality, yet easy to use product.
So with that perfect segue, I'd like you to meet the newest member of my everyday makeup look: Kryolan Shimmer Event in Golden Beige.
PSA: This is NOT a foundation.
Technically the product is called Shimmering Event Foundation, but it’s not a foundation. It’s just not. I would describe it as a glow-inducing liquid illuminator. This skin primer perfectly enhances your skin with radiance and creates a smooth base for foundation. I liken it to the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector which used to be my favourite (emphasis on used to be) but I feel like the Kryolan formula has slightly more pigment and shimmer.
Why I Love It?
It’s a lightweight hydrating formula that glides onto my skin
Leaves my skin looking healthy, radiant and with a subtle golden glow
I can use it alone, mixed with foundation or as a liquid highlighter
I can even bush it onto my body, specifically my collarbones, for a little extra glam
Available in three different shades to compliment all skin types and tones
Celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge keeps this liquid illuminator in her makeup kit, so if it’s good enough for her, it is definitely good enough for me. If you're considering exploring the Kryolan range, Shimmer Event is the perfect first impression of this high-quality makeup brand.
What Does Everyone Else Say About It?
Multi-use shimmery goodness
So many uses
Great for thinning out full coverage foundations
