Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Veil Cosmetics
It’s weightless, breathable formulations that softly VEIL imperfections without hiding what makes you, you.
Founded in 2012, Veil Cosmetics was created by celebrity makeup artist Sébastien Tardif to meet the demands of his high-profile clients—Tardif’s clientele of celebrities, models, and brides were longing for lightweight, skincare-infused complexion makeup that elevated their skin, not hid it. They wanted to forget they were even wearing makeup and trick others into believing this was their natural complexion.
That’s when Tardif made his “magic wand,” the Complexion Fix Concealer, to create the illusion of a pure glow. A desert island must-have, the Complexion Fix Concealer quickly erases redness, blemishes, eye fatigue, and dark spots instantly, achieving that lightly-veiled look while leaving good skin untouched.
The beauty of Veil Cosmetics’ Complexion Fix Concealer is that it can work in so many different ways. Firstly, you can use the product as a concealer to naturally “veil” imperfections to create a smooth, even canvas. Also, you don’t need to set this product with a powder, since it’s already self-setting. Secondly, you can use this concealer as a corrector for darker pigmentation, such as dark circles or sunspots—just make sure you choose a shade that’s deeper than your skin tone to help neutralize. Finally, use the Complexion Fix Concealer as a shimmer-free, water-based highlighter. You want to use a full shade that’s lighter than your skin tone to help make your highlight blend seamlessly.
Although the Complexion Fix Concealer is the original and hero product of the line, Tardif used his extensive knowledge as a pro makeup artist of 25 years to develop the rest of the Veil Cosmetics vegan makeup line 3 years later. Inspired by his love of radiant, healthy-looking skin, Tardif created weightless, breathable complexion products that impart a sheer veil of color to allow your real, gorgeous skin to glow from beneath the light-infused makeup. Veil Cosmetics’ line of cruelty-free, oil-free, and vegan makeup products fuse skincare and color science to impart instant illumination while soothing and hydrating for a natural-looking, veiled complexion.
Veil’s Sunset Light Primer Serum is the perfect base for any foundation or concealer you’re applying. Thanks to the water-based formula using serum-strength actives, this primer perfectly sets the foundation for any makeup applied afterward—it primes, hydrates, brightens, soothes, and most importantly, it blurs pores and fine lines for a seamless application. This product can be applied directly onto the skin, or you can mix it in with any liquid or stick foundation to help lighten up the coverage and instantly infuse them with a weightless finish.
Once you’ve applied your Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light Primer Serum, you can then move onto your Sunset Skin Liquid Foundation. This beautifully airy, skincare-infused whipped formula comes in 15 shades and reveals skin as if it’s been drenched in the sunset light. The water-based texture literally melts right into your complexion, without feeling heavy, cakey, or mask-like. The texture has been specially engineered to create an effortless blended and soft-focus finish, helping skin to appear smoother while reducing the look of pores and fine lines. Not only does it look great, but it’s good for your skin, too—it’s dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and non-irritating, too. It’s a great base for special occasions or times when you’d like a bit more coverage than just using the Complexion Fix Concealer.
Next up, we have the Veil Cosmetics Velvet Lip & Cheek Palette, which utilizes Veil Cosmetics’ groundbreaking matte gel formula for a dewy, colorful addition to your makeup look. The Velvet lip and cheek stains are non-sticky, non-drying, non-feathering, and contain silky, skin-conditioning emollients that are long-wearing. This palette offers the perfect hint of natural color, and with a total of six universal shades, there is something available for everyone. You can also customize the palette by mixing any of the shades (including guava, fig, apricot, raspberry, berry, and almond) together for a shade that’s right for you.
You can use your finger to apply the shades from our Velvet Lip & Cheek Palette, or use one of our beautifully crafted makeup brushes to sweep the color onto your cheeks and lips. We have a few options when it comes to makeup brushes. At Veil, we sell our Pro On The Go 5 Piece Brush Set, as well as our two Dual-Ended Brushes.
The Pro On The Go Brush Set includes five mini must-have brushes to create any makeup look you desire. The brushes are designed with full-sized heads, along with a unique acrylic ultra-mini handle that fits perfectly in your hand and won’t get in the way when applying makeup. What’s so great about these guys is that they’re small, so they can easily fit into your travel bag without adding unnecessary bulk or weight. We also love that they don’t take up much space on your vanity if you prefer to use them at home. This set of five brushes includes the Buffer Brush, Foundation Brush, Cheek Brush, Concealer Brush, and Lip Brush.
Our other brushes include the Dual-Ended Concealer and Foundation Brush and the Dual-Ended Lip and Cheek Brush. The Dual-Ended Concealer and Foundation Brush is specifically designed to provide an airbrushed finish after having brushed on and tapped your Complexion Fix Concealer, resulting in a skin-like dry down. Additionally, the fluffy, rounded foundation tip can be brushed on or tapped onto skin to evenly disperse pigment without leaving any traces or streaks, enhancing the look of real skin. The rounded tip also avoids pigment congestion in pores and textured skin, which is a common issue encountered by foundation wearers.
On the other hand, the Dual-Ended Lip and Cheek Brush offers fast, precise blending of lip color or any creamy textures and can be used flat or sideways, while the hand-sculpted cheek brush is tight yet fluffy to allow for a soft, natural blend of color without streaking. All of our brushes feature faux-mink bristles, which are 100% synthetic, cruelty-free, and incorporate the latest innovations in technology for superior performance.
Finally, we have our Automatte Mattifying Balm, which isn’t what you might expect from a setting product. Unlike powder that makes your skin look older and dry, AutoMatte’s soft velvet finish diminishes the appearance of pores and fine lines while keeping your t-zone in check. Non-drying and non-caking, Automatte’s weightless and breathable veil provides a soft-focus effect that leaves your skin looking naturally smooth. Plus, the formula’s clarifying and brightening properties soothe the complexion and assist in collagen synthesis and protection. This balm is available in one universal tint for all skin tones, and can be used as a primer, with or without makeup, to prevent shine and oil build-up, as well as a touch-up throughout the day.
And there you have it—our line of beautifully crafted, quality complexion cosmetics that do so much more than just cover up imperfections. Whether you choose to use the Complexion Fix Concealer, the Sunset Skin Liquid Foundation, the Velvet Lip & Cheek Palette, or the entire range of our line, we know each and every product will help you get one step closer to enhancing your gorgeous glow from within.
