Unleash your alter ego with ILLAMASQUA


My fashionistas, here are few pics taken at the Illamasqua flagship store in Beak Street London, ILLAMASQUA first came into market in 2008 and now one of  leading designer cosmetic brands worldwide.

I have to tell you that i am a Mac cosmetics  slave, i have more MAC products on my dressing table than any other brand, but as i know everyone has at least 1/2 things best in them, so i do keep my eyes open and use products from Illamasqua, Dior, Chanel etc and have very unique and specific make-up items from them in my collection.

My first exposure to Illamasqua came with a story i have to share with you all. I was at the selfridges London one evening, wanting to visit MAC store there and this time i wanted to buy a matt finishing very jett black liquid eye liner, which MAC don’t do usually, the one MAC does is a bit shiny( i have that too) and i do not find it appropriate to use it during the day in summer especially at work or if i’m visiting a country like India, Bangladesh, Greece etc where it gets really hot in summer. So not finding at MAC what i was looking for, i headed to Dior showroom, when i explained exactly what i was looking for, this make-up artist gentleman from Dior referred me to Illamasqua store in Selfridges London. I was indifferent and went there, talked to the only lady make-up aritist present there and i tell you she was a genius sales(wo)man and a perfect make-up artist who knows how to make you feel ”yes thats what i want to buy NOW”! I came back home with a happy jett black matt liquid eyeliner. Since then i use their peach blush on and transparent mascara as well.

About 2 months ago i had this appointment booked that i was gifted to me in one of the fashion event i attended recently by Stylistpick and i thought 13th March would be the perfect day to avail the complimentary session i have received as it’s my anniversary 🙂  So i went there after work and they have completely made me walk out with a big happy blue (not the sad one) smile on my eyes and face:)


I was asked what i was wearing for that night before the make-up artist starts her charishma on my face. This is a must! When you do your make-up at home, first ask yourself where you are going and what you are wearing. Your make-up adventure will be depending on these two things primarily.Then she gave me two different colour palette to choose as per my answer to her first question. So i was going to wear a saree(an indian outfit) with black sequins and silver grey water polka dot prints, she had given me options between blue and peach/ purple and pink. I went ahead with the electric blue-peach combination because orange-peach is the colour of the season. I think peachy orange looks great on my lips and blue is a colour i use so often on my eyes, i have different shades of blue eye shadows from MAC and l’oreal in my collection. So i thought blue eyes would create that dreamy effect with my black-silver grey saree. So she started off and the rest is a history with smoothing color playing for 1.5 hours with lots of brushes in different sizes and shapes, from lighter shades to the darkest one.

  

  

I have been a fan of Illamasqua in the past and after this complimentary transformation session , i became a fan for lifetime as they rightly claim ”unleash your alter ego”! I did. Do you fancy to do so?
