I was so skeptical. I kept thinking to myself there’s no way they can match my foundation shade OVER THE INTERNET, OVER THE INTERNET?!
I was intrigued so I took the quiz, and I was looking for a new foundation so I thought why not give it a go? Shopping for foundation has never been an enjoyable task for me so if the quiz worked then it was a win win situation.
The quiz is designed to give you a perfect shade match for the ‘Woke Up Like This’ foundation.

So what is this foundation?
Woke Up Like This – A FLAWLESS BASE FOUNDATION from IL MAKIAGE.
“Woke Up Like This is a powerful, streak-free foundation that smoothes and evens the skin with an advanced, innovative formula for a flawless, uniform natural matte finish. Available in 50 shades for all skin tones”
Some of the key factors that led to me ultimately being interested in this foundation were:
*Easy buildability meets ultimate blendability in its ultra-fluid texture, becoming one with the skin for traceless, uniform medium-to-high coverage.
*Special optically corrective powders blur fine lines, redness, and blemishes while light-diffusing spheres deflect attention away from all imperfections.
After taking the quiz I was still skeptical but extremely drawn in. I had been going back and forth about trying this foundation for ages as I kept seeing adverts to take the quiz and read some really awesome reviews. I decided to contact Il Makiage customer service, the ladies in this amazing team provided me with an E-Voucher to use and purchase my shade which is 105, so when I used the voucher and saw shipping info, as you can imagine I was so EXCITED to receive my foundation!
Shipping was quick and it came in 2 days!
The foundation comes with some guidelines on how to use and get the best coverage.
On the guidelines it says you should use 2 pumps… I had pulled and pulled at the lid but for some reason it wouldn’t come off so I assumed that the pump had to be purchased separately like some other brands. I twiddled the top off and saw the shade in all its sunny undertone glory.
I put some of the foundation on my face and got to work with the blending sponge. The fluidity and consistency of the foundation is excellent, it spreads nicely across the face and skin and the coverage is buildable but I didn’t need to use too much.
One thing I absolutely detest is when a foundation is hard on your skin and is tough to move around the face. Fortunately this isn’t the case with the Il Makiage foundation and the make up is true to its key factors.
The ‘Woke Up Like This’ foundation matches my skin perfectly and feels quite light sitting on my skin.
After leaving the foundation to set for five minutes I was amazed at how flawless my skin looked
After I had applied and let the foundation set, the pump was still niggling at me, I looked in the box to see if they had provided a pump but no such luck. I then tried to remove the lid again and off it came. What a doughnut!
I was honestly not expecting this to match my skin tone as well as it has. This has blown my mind and upped my face game. It matches perfectly and it is such a light feeling with excellent coverage.
I highly recommend you take the quiz and give it a go. I am Il Makiage for life now!
For me, ‘Woke Up Like This’ is 2021’s best foundation!
