I love makeup but don’t usually like shopping for it and I often rely on the makeup artists that I work with for their advice and suggestions. This time I just wanted to venture out on my own so I thought I’d pay Illamasqua on Beak Street a visit. The staff was very helpful and very knowledgeable. It’s surprising how often you can go to a cosmetic counter and you just feel like the staff is trying to push products on you. The makeup artist was so good that I just wanted to buy everything (it doesn’t hurt that the products are so reasonably priced too!) I’m also looking forward to the launch of ‘Toxic Nature‘, their new makeup range.
