How Illamasqua pushed me out of my comfort zone

 Wearing Illamasqua 

Wearing Illamasqua 

Earlier today I visited my local Illamasqua counter after spying Rebecca Romanin. Rebecca is one of Illamasqua's Melbourne-based makeup artists who also freelances when she's not painting pretty faces inside of Myer. To be honest I've been dying to have Rebecca do my makeup for ages since I started following her on Instagram -- all I had to do was quell my fangirl giddiness. 

For the sake of recalibration, here's what I look like on any given day of the week.

 Hey there.

Hey there.

The initial consultation was brief -- we discussed my skin type (combination), eye colour (hazel) and the sorts of things I typically wear (neutral). Eventually, we both settled on a daytime look heavily leaning into nighttime with a purple theme. 

Here's a breakdown of what Rebecca used:

Lips

Rebecca was super sweet, talented, worked quickly and educated me while she moved along.

If you're ever in the market for new makeup, book in for a consultation to broaden your horizons. The makeup session was valued at $60.00 AUS (the minimum) which I was able to put toward my makeup purchase after we finished.
