When make up artist and generally all around creative, Alex Box asked me to help give her new project a shout out, how could I refuse? This wonderful being has helped me learn a lot about make up, art, being creative and being myself over the years, I owe her a lot. I’m very lucky […]
As many of you know, I’m a massive fan of make up artist and all round creative, Alex Box. Until recently Alex was heavily involved with make up brand, Illamasqua, as Creative Director and she’s now on her own individual journey, which I’m really enjoying following. Her latest news is a big story, Alex introduced her first product this week, which officially launches 7th June, The Alex Box.
Last week I made a flying visit to London and to my old home area of Shoreditch to finally step foot in Ace Hotel despite living in a building attached to it for over 6 months! Anyway, the 2 hour round trip to London is always worth it when it means Illamasqua and most importantly getting to spend some time with the amazing and inspiring Alex Box. The team introduced us to the new Earth collection which is available now and I’ve got two of the products to show you.
Ok, so following on from the lovely Illamasqua Glamore event that I attended earlier in the week, it’s now time for me to give you a proper review of the Glamore lipsticks now that I’ve had some time to play with them properly. There’s three shades in the new collectionL Soaked, Glissade and Luster. The […]
So, yesterday on my birthday on of my all time favourite brands showcased their new collection at Selfridges. What perfect timing to hang out with some amazing, inspiration people and beautiful make up. So happy! Anyway, the new Illamasqua, The Sacred Hour is inspired by nature and traditional ritual, taking inspiration from crystals, opals and […]
This weekend has been insane. I’ve never before crammed so much into one weekend and I’m now, so knackered. So, I’ve had the lovely Andrew James MUA stay with me for four days, on his first ever trip to London. We visited all the make up hot spots and spent an afternoon at IMATS. Andii, […]
Today I’m handing over to my lovely work colleague and friend, Sinead. I’ve recently started my new job and was delighted to find that me and Sinead had so much in common, including a shared love for Illamasqua and Alex Box, so found it only fitting that I invite her to guest blog after attending […]
Ahhh! It’s my favourite time of year again, Illamasqua even time and that means one thing, new stuff! As soon as I received the event, I knew it would be love. A spooky, smoky, purple invite with the name Paranormal. I love the tagline too, why be normal, when you can be paranormal? Too right […]
Yesterday I was very excited to finally get to attend an Illamasqua event. I’ve been a fan of the range since it first launched with their Berlin collection just three years ago, it’s always a range that speaks to be inner Goth and my love of theatre. Completely different to anything else out there and […]
