So 2 months ago I headed to London, feeling a bit like Super Teacher as I'd managed to teach all day, do a lunch duty, plan all of my lessons for the next day and still make it onto a train to London on time! I met Lydia and we headed to the event.
Illamasqua events are magical, they always inspire me and I leave desperately wanting to play with make-up and create something out of the norm! I was also a little awe struck as not only was Alex Box there, but I finally got to meet Zoe, the london lipgloss, I was nervous but I did go say hi!
Alex Box working her magic:
The collection is all about inverting our ideas of the traditional look. They have introduced a white Precision Ink instead of the traditional black, and their teal lipstick, Apocalips, which many girls could be seen wearing on the night, instead of the usual red. As always, I am most excited for the nail polishes, I will be posting photos of Stance soon, and am hoping for the jade shade, Nomad, for my birthday.
