Illamasque Skin Base masterclass with David Horne Part 1

I going to make this short and simple because my little cousins will soon wake up from their nap. I attended the Illamasqua "Skin Base" with David Horne (Head of new product development) On the 8th of july at their flagship store. The class was showcasing the new Makeup Muse "Skin Base foundation" created by David. He did a demonstration on three different skin tones using three different types of makeup brushes. I heard about Skin base via twitter and I was curious to know what the whole noise about Skin Base. At first I went to check it at Selfridges but that place a marketplace so I did a U-turn.

Anywoo, the class gave me the opportunity to see the foundation up close and I was able to ask the one million questions I stored in my brain. David was really pleasant and had a ton of information to share (loads of tips,tricks and techniques) . Skin base comes in 18 shades ranging from super pale to dark chocolate brown.

Illamasque's store is like a mini ART museum, its not your typical everyday makeup store #love. David not only answered everyones question, he helped us pick the right foundation. At the end of the class I asked for some samples to take home to play with. Part 2 of this post will be be review of the foundation ( I'm still testing it).
Overall I had a good evening at the Illamasque store. For more information visit the website ILLAMASQUE.CO.UK. or the Blog
