Beauty Spotlight: Yinka Odusute

This week on Beauty Spotlight we are joined by Yinka Odusute from Vex in the City. Yinka created Nail Varnish in Fusion as part of our new #Creators Collection so to celebrate this collaboration we asked Yinka a few questions about her inspiration behind Fusion…

How would you personally wear the product you created? With gold flecks of glitter over the top teamed with a high gloss top coat for maximum impact.

In a dream world, who would be the #1 person you’d love to see wearing your product? Ooooh can’t I pick two? Beyonce or Katy Perry.

What inspired you to create this particular product? My friend’s marble kitchen worktop! The tones are quite similar to my polish. She thought I was mad when I started snapping away in her kitchen with my phone!

Nail Varnish - Fusion

What was your favourite part in the process of creating your product? Deciding on the shade to choose! Looking for visual inspirations was fun.

If you could pair your product with another Illamasqua product what would it be and why? Box lipstick, I think a bright vampy red goes well with Fusion for a day or evening look.
