Illamasqua Beauty School Drop-In Sessions & Giveaway!

Hello lovelies,

Love makeup? Love picking up tips and tricks from the experts? Fancy winning yourself a gorgeous Illamasqua pack worth $50? If you answered yes to these questions, then read on, because I have some great news for you!

Illamasqua, a brand that I absolutely adore for a variety of reasons (among which are their artistic and innovative makeup campaigns, friendly salespeople, high quality products and petition for a fair beauty price) are holding Beauty School Drop-In (BSDI) sessions all over Australia. Each session runs for about 15 minutes and will be conducted by experienced makeup artists, during which you will be taught a variety of techniques on how to achieve everything from flawless skin to a jaw-dropping smoky eye!


The best part? It's completely free-of-charge! Yes, you heard me right, beauties, each BSDI session is completely free, so you are welcome to attend, have a chat with the lovely makeup artists and experiment with new products, at absolutely no cost to you (beyond the price of a train/tram ticket, that is)!

Sessions begin at 11.30 am and run until approximately 3.30 pm, with locations and dates as specified below. It's best to contact your preferred Illamasqua counter to confirm class schedules before dropping in!


  • Saturday February 23rd - BSDI MELBOURNE - Mikele Simone, Frances Cutri and Rebecca Romanin. (03) 9661 1270
  • Friday March 22nd - BSDI BRISBANE - Mikele Simone, Frances Cutri. (07) 3232 0121
  • Saturday March 23rd - BSDI SYDNEY - Mikele Simone, Frances Cutri. (02) 9238 9111
  • Thursday March 28th - BSDI CHADSTONE - Mikele Simone, Rebecca Romanin. (03) 9567 6211
  • Saturday March 30th - BSDI MELBOURNE - Mikele Simone, Rebecca Romanin. (03) 9661 1270


Tell me, beauties, doesn't this sound fantastic? I know I'm definitely going to be checking this out, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience of an Illamasqua make-over (read about it here) and I can't wait to pick up more expert tips!


Oh, and last but not least, as if Illamasqua weren't fantastic enough, they have generously provided me with a gorgeous Illamasqua pack worth $50 to give away to one of my lovely readers! To win, all you have to do is tell me which Illamasqua campaign has been your favourite, and why, in under 25 words or under (believe me, I will be counting)! The most creative answer wins!!! One entry per person and you must be a follower of my blog. This competition is only open to Australian readers, and closes at 12pm on Sunday, 3rd March 2013.

Much love,
MM.

  1. I thought their Fight for a Fair Price campaign was great as it got the word out that Australians are paying too much for makeup!

  10. Generation Q is the best
    Even though I love all the rest.
    The campaign message was so clear
    "Beauty with no age limits" - so SINCERE!!!

    25 words - YAY, I made it :P You know where to find me if I get chosen *mwah*

  11. Generation Q was the best, hot people of all ages and races rocking typical Illamasqua awesomeness.

  12. A Fair Price for Beauty because it gives me the incentive to support the Australian economy (instead of America's). Abby says no to price discrimination!

  13. "Generation Q" Beauty at any age and not trying to dress like a 14 year old is a good maxim to live by.

  14. Theatre of the Nameless, which was my introduction to Illamasqua and my first glimpse at how make-up could be an art form.

    1. I think it was my introduction too! I'd been aware of the brand but hadn't really dropped by before.

  15. i love I'mperfection, it shows the world that you don't need photoshop to be beautiful, and hey, who doesn't want slime green lips?!

    1. Who indeed? :)

      I *may* have purchased that lip gloss...

  16. Human Fundamentalism got to me.
    The textures, colours, tribal-vibe, & freedom of it all,
    almost like bridging a gap from history to modernity.

    1. Great answer, and very true of that campaign!

  17. Their "Not Dreaming Of a White Christmas" campaign was controversial but I thought the red lips, top hat and bow tie were classy and sexy.

    1. I agree, I really think that some people were analyzing it too much.
