Ada Zanditon – Make-up by Illamasqua’s National Make-up Artist Mika

Beautiful yet dangerous, delicate yet powerful – the ice princess is back!

Ada brought the theme of electric blue eyes and cheeks coupled with an exaggerated 3D blue lip to the forefront with the “Cryoflux” collection.

Mika created the look seen in the above video: “The hyper reflective make-up palette reinforced Ada’s vision of the empowered alien girl from the cold ice planet arriving on Earth. To create the holographic lip, I used Lipstick in ‘Disciple’, with Liquid Metal in ‘Superior’ – a metallic sapphire – to create the metallic sheen with Intense Lipgloss in ‘Repulse’ pressed on top. This layering made the lip the focal point, and with a dab of Sheer Lipgloss in ‘Soul‘ in the middle, created an electric 3D feel.”

“The brow was inspired by a combination of Bride of Frankenstein and rockhopper penguins, this was a very Antartic inspired collection and there are such great ideas in the wildlife”.

Lucy Gibson, freelance make-up artist for Illamasqua, added “for the look book, we took out the brows by using Cream Foundation in shade 100, and frosted them with Pure Pigment in ‘Static’ to evoke a feeling of an arctic winter. The make-up was very beautiful; the lips, the brows and the contoured eye was fun to create, and it was an enjoyable experience working with Ada whose sheer dedication to her designs and passion for make-up are a make-up artists dream!”
