Can anyone even recognise me?! *insert laughing with tears emoticon here*

Illamasqua cosmetic line has impressed me tremendously with their highly pigmented and long lasting cosmetic products, and I am truly satisfied with this gothic makeover the Illamasqua Singapore team did on me. With the intention to bring out and highlight strong individuality, the Illamasqua cosmetic line provides consumers and make-up artists the capability to ensure self-expressiveness and achieve the look they aim to create.

I was invited to the one and only Illamasqua’s counter located at the new Robinsons Orchard, previously known as Heeren. We quickly got down to the make-up procedure from the MUA.

Getting down to draw the most important feature – the eyes!

At first I really thought I couldn’t bring out the gothic look since my facial features are not distinctive enough. My impression of gothic look requires very sharp facial features, but unfortunately, not only is my face slight chubby, my eyes also single-eyelids, making the look even harder to achieve.

Fortunately, this was not a big challenge to my make-up artist especially when she’s gifted with so many highly-pigmented Illamasqua’s products. The liquid eyeliner especially was so intense and dark, but it was removable using oil-based makeup remover.

And I really adore this lip colour.

If you’ve noticed, Illamasqua’s cosmestic line involves mostly dark mystical colours, in an attempt to bring out to mysterious look which might even end up to be esoteric – only the same minds would understand.

About Illamasqua: 

Hailed as the most significant make-up launch in over twenty years, independent, British make-up brand Illamasqua brings truly professional make-up to the High street for the first time. This make-up brand, that empowers people to express their individuality, has been making a scene in London since its launch in November 2008. The product of a heady mix of influences; from its roots in the dark and illicit 1920s Berlin club scene, to a rich heritage in the manufacture of make-up for film and theatre, Illamasqua takes its inspiration from members of the ‘alternative scenes’ for whom self-expression is paramount. Champions of creativity and fighting against injustice wherever we go, our highly-pigmented, long lasting products provide consumers and make-up artists alike with the products and inspiration to ensure they can express themselves, whoever they are and whatever look they want to achieve. After debuting in Selfridges Oxford Street, in the biggest retail space ever awarded to an unknown brand, Illamasqua can now be found in the best retailers in seven territories across the world including the USA, UAE and Australia and South East Asia.

The first counter was recently opened in Robinson’s Orchard.
