Oh my goodness.. the Illamasqua Spooktacular was so much fun but everyone was far too good at guessing! I thought I’d show some of the behind the scenes pictures because being made up to that extent is quite a performance. Make-up artist, Mica, did the most spectacular job, starting with Rose from MixedGems (peeping behind me in the bottom pic), then on to Ree at Really Ree and finally me. Spob (amazing hair and wig expert) had a variety of wigs for us – going blonde was weird but not as weird as the head scarves we all had to wear underneath..

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
There was some pretty wild contouring going on – Ree took the brunt of it! All in all it took about three and half hours to get us all ready to scare… all of this (not unexpectedly) is so out of my normal make up remit – but that purple lip – I am definitely going to do it in real life! It’s called Shard (find it HERE) and it’s matte.. so far out of my comfort zone on so many levels!
We really had a brilliant time – everything was so painstakingly done so I have to say a big thank you to Mika and Spob and everyone at Illamasqua for my spooky look!
