Two weeks ago, I was invited to Illamasqua's PRO event in their flagship store ( Beak Street London) to preview their new collection THE SACRED HOUR and the new Skin base lift concealer. As you all know I’ve been a fan of Illamasqua from day one ( Yes i’m biased because its a British brand). The brand is NOT your average makeup brand, its a brand that constantly brings something fresh to the table. 
Although this collection did not get as much hype as their previous collection, I actually like more from this collection than the last one. The makeup from this collection is very stunning and I love how simple yet deep the looks are.

At the event I got to network with fellow makeup artists who were really nice and pleasant. David Horne ( This man is a GENIUS and I always learn so much from him)  the product developer and director of Illamasqua, tried the Skin base concealer in Dark 2 underneath my eyes to brighten the area. He applied hydra veil under my eyes to rehydrate the area then went on to apply the skin base concealer with a fluffy blending brush. As you can see from the picture below, the concealer instantly brightens my under eye area without the cakey feeling.

The Sacred hour - Facet nail polish *love this one

L-R Velvet blush- Sleek, Reflection palette & Velvet blush - Peaked

An Illamasqua event will never be complete without a goody bag, the products I received are exactly what I would have bought from the collection + the Facet nail polish. The Lipstick is called SHARD and the velvet blush PEAKED.  I’m yet to try the blush but I intend to use it in my next tutorial. On the other hand I’ve been rocking the lipstick alot. SHARD is a red violet matt finish lipstick ( For some reason it reminds me of Ribena).
