I was thrilled to open the post today and find a copy of Wallpaper* magazine for my attention. I used to absorb this magazine when I was at University; it really covers every aspect of design from hotels, restaurants, clothing, interiors and of course, cosmetics!
So I was doubly thrilled to see that we had been nominated for a prestigious design award in the category for Best New Grooming Product!
It is certainly a tough category but we are the only British brand nominated so that is very exciting. The winner will be announced in the February issue of Wallpaper* - on sale January 14th.
Illamasqua is a heady cocktail of cultures - it combines a rich heritage and product knowledge with the creativity and expertise of Illamasqua's team of leading make-up artists. A night-time make-up that brings premium, professional products within reach of the high street.
Illamasqua is for the bolder, darker person hiding inside us. It is an act and an attitude. A symbol of tolerance. A celebration of idiosyncrasies. A confident statement of self-ownership and self-expression.
Illamasqua is your alter-ego.
My alter ego is the person I want to become. She's darker, bolder, braver. She's a more interesting version of me. She doesn't hold back. She doesn't give a damn. Sometimes, I let myself become my other I. When she walks out and takes over, I fall in love with who I am.
