The story of Ruthie Molloy's quest to create the perfect makeup collection began more than 13 years ago. At that time, Molloy was working as an esthetician, providing treatments to patients who had undergone laser resurfacing treatments for severe scarring and other serious skin conditions. Many of these women had lingering sensitivity, tenderness and inflammation after the treatments and were anxious to hide the irritation without compromising the health of their skin. The only option for her clients was natural mineral makeup, but the powder forms that were available on the market didn't offer enough coverage for their needs.
The Illuminare Cosmetics collection was initially developed as a solution for Molloy's clients, but the popularity and effectiveness of her makeup inspired her to make it available to the public. The products found in the Illuminare Cosmetics collection were the first liquid mineral makeup solution available on the market and allow you to enjoy the benefits of natural cosmetics with full coverage, easy-to-apply formulas. In addition, Illuminare Cosmetics also contain moisturizing ingredients that soothe and nourish the skin while concealing imperfections.
