Skin Illustrator Glazing Gels - An Introduction

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.*

This is an introduction into the Skin Illustrator Glazing Gels not only for you but for me also.  Normally, these gels would be a find for anyone into SFX makeup rather than the normal cosmetic junkie like me.  However, I like to explore and play.

Play I did.  In fact, I haven’t stopped playing.  So, instead of reviewing the products, I decided to give you a peek into what these Skin Illustrator Glazing Gels look like.

How Great Glazing Gels are as a beauty product for mature skin.

Skin Illustrator is a line of SFX makeup created by Premiere Products, Inc.  The line is FDA licensed and is cruelty-free.  All their products are made in the USA with the highest quality and highest grade ingredients. PPI has manufactured products for medical field.  With this in mind, the products whether it be for the skin and hair have to be safe.

The Skin Illustrator Glazing Gels ($15) come in many special effects colors like the normal bruising, burns, and blood colors.  They also come in an array of tanning or bronzing colors and contour colors.  There are also Skin Illustrator Glazing Sprays ($20)  to use for large areas, when precision application isn’t needed. 

The Glazing Gels

These are water based transparent colors designed to look like the color comes from the skin and not sitting on top.  These Glazing Gels can be used anywhere on the face and body. 

I bought these in 3 colors: Sable - a yellow based dark brown; Character 2 - a dark brown with a mauve base used for contouring and old age makeup; and Clear to use to dilute or use as a mixing medium. Sable makes a great eyeshadow color while Character 2 is the contour color and eyeshadow color. 

The Colors

As I mentioned, I am still experimenting with these gels and the more I do, the more my perspective changes towards makeup.  This line is TRULY makeup made for the technology which exists today, meaning HD and digital photography.  This means the makeup has to look like skin.  Digital cameras today can differentiate every little detail in texture, color, and lighting.  I am sure you have noticed how your camera can pick up the difference between two different colors so sharply while your eye just sees them, possibly, as the same.

What these Glazing Gels do that others can’t is mimic how colors should look like on normal everyday skin!  They look like your skin in every angle and every light.  The Glazing Gels look totally natural. 

Take a look at my eyes, one without makeup and one with the Glazing Gels.  I applied the gels only with no other makeup.  It is an unfinished eye but I wanted you to see the difference.  The colors create a natural depth.

Natural, Skin-like Eyeshadow

If you are a makeup artist and have those shoots where the natural look is needed, you need these.  They provide the most NATURAL looking contour I have ever seen.  A model will look like he or she was born with those chiseled cheeks!

I do have more to say about these gels, therefore I will continue with more soon.  For now, check out makeup artist Vivian Baker and her 5 part series on the Glazing Gels.
