An Illamasqua Night on the Town...

Some of us from HQ and the Selfridges London make-up artist team headed out for a meal and farewell drinks for our lovely Product Development Manager Katie Sangers, who is leaving us to pursue her dream of creating a cream tea empire! We wish her the best of luck and I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank her for all the hard work she has put in to help create Illamasqua in the beauty force it is today.

We are also saying farewell to Gillian Staal, who has been the Business Manager on the Selfridges London counter for the past year. Gillian will be relocating to Australia with the exciting job of supporting the Illamasqua launch at Myer on the 21st June - a date to put in your diaries, Sydney fans!

We went for dinner at Santore, a lovely Italian in Exmouth Market, followed by drinks in Soho...

I have plenty more photos, but I would be at the mercy of my colleagues if I was to post them all!

In other Illamasqua news, Leena from Selfridges Trafford, was featured in this months Company magazine. A great article that I have attached for you to read below. Why Leena decided to become a make-up artist is very inspiring...


  1. I'm clearing my diary for the 21st haha, can't wait!

  2. Please tell me Perth is shortly after Sydney! Sydney gets everything good, it's just not fair. Are you planning on having an Australian Illamasqua site? That'd be cool, too.

  3. why are you leaving kt WHY????

  4. I really like Halimah's style and she always looks beautiful on the photos you post, you can tell her :)

    Also thank you for the story of Leena.


  5. Thanx marina x x

  6. Psyched for the Illamsqua Sydney launch! Less than one month to go!

    I also second the suggestion for an Aussie website.


We love to hear from you!
