Due to my make-up course I got the opportunity to to the Illamasqua flagship store in Beak Street for a demo evening and then free reign of the store. After battling the rush hour we arrived at the store – which is beautiful and where ushered into a little side room where they hold make-up classes.
Our hour long demo was taken by the talented Tonee Roberio who has worked with many celebrities including Kylie Minogue, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. He talked us through each product he was using on his dark vampy night time look, although part of it was to sell us the products it was also just a great opportunity to know more about the products Illamasqua has and how to use them. Illamasqua has a really unique way of doing make up they go against the usual structure to create these gorgeous ethereal looks which break a lot of boundaries.
After the demo we were let loose in the store, I picked up Hollow Cream Pigment which I have been wanting for ages, Skin Base in SB 3.5 and an Eye Shadow in Stealth. I can’t wait to try out all the products and the packaging is beautiful.
I’m not sure that the demo evenings are available to all but if you want to learn more about the company or how they apply the make-up then I would highly suggest trying one of their 2-3 hour courses.
Peace Out and Pixie Dust XO
