In case you didn’t know, Illamasqua launched their latest collection, entitled Body Electrics a few days ago.

My goal is to produce swatches of items that are harder to find on the net and product high quality, clear, studio quality swatches. What good is a swatch you can’t even see, right? A labour of love or a pain in the ass? Like a newborn baby, it has been both. Until everything is ready, I shall […]

Everyone has to adapt things to suit their own eye shape but hopefully any of you can use this guide. All of the colours and tools I used are dupable but I have tried to use brands that can be bought from around […]
