My First Time… In Illamasqua

I know this is extremely hard to believe, but I have never ventured into Illamasqua until recently. I'm not too sure why either as it seems a store I would really like to buy cosmetics from. The MUA's are absolute babes and wear some amazing looks too!
I thought I would pop in as I was looking for a foundation match to my scalp, since shaving my hair I've noticed a lot more of my foundations and BB creams look terribly orange so needed this fixing ASAP. And what better place to go? Somewhere where bold make up looks are regularly worn. 

I was seen to by a lovely MUA who had amazing make up on herself may I add, the most gorgeous eyebrows and bright red lipstick. I fell in love instantly and knew she was the one for me. She colour matched me perfectly with their foundation so I thought I would ask her to sort my eyebrows as well and shade them in, something which I have no idea how to do myself. She sorted them out within a matter of minutes and the definition was just what I needed to go with my edgy look. Thank goodness for their eyebrow cakes!
Whilst I was there I thought I would have a look for a bright lipstick, I was looking for something bright blue but when she showed me the teal shade of Apocalips I was amazed. Could I pull something like that off without looking like an alien? Well I was sure going to try. She also showed me a few of their glosses as well which have amazing bright colours and mix really well when applied over a lipstick, something I've never thought of doing before to give a different shade. 
The experience was fantastic, and I can definitely see myself going there for one of their master classes and beauty school drop in sessions, I really need to master a bold smokey eye now!
