Get the Look: Spob, Head of Professional Development

In advance of our LIVE Q&A this Friday with our fabulous Head of Professional Development, Spob, we thought we would highlight Spob’s must-have make-up style for an insight into her personal make-up kit!


We caught up with Spob so we could share how to get her look…


Spob begins her look by applying Skin Base Foundation in SB 11, she then uses Skin Base in SB 08 as a highlighter to create radiance.


To achieve Spob’s defined cheekbones, apply Powder Blusher in Beg for a flawless effect and to add a dewy finish, sweep Cream Blusher in Dixie across the apples of your cheek. Spob’s Top Tip… Take your Highlighter Brush with a little excess Skin Base from applying your foundation and blend out the Blushers to defuse the edges and create a soft finish!

For perfectly structured brows, Spob uses Powder Eye Shadow in Wolf. This is great to either enhance the natural shape of your brows or to redefine and transform the shape.


Spob has opted for a golden-bronze smoky eye for her look. Try our Neutral Palette, the make-up kit essential, to create a similar effect. The Vintage Gold Powder Eye Shadow works beautifully to define the sockets and the Obsidian shadow mixed with a little Sealing Gel can be used to draw a long-lasting liner! Masquara in Raven sets Spob’s look for ultra defined lashes.


To complete Spob’s signature look, we turn to a deep, dramatic lip! She first sketches the shape of the lip using Medium Pencil in Ascend. Blending Medium Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E with Lipstick in Growl, Spob then applies the deep, plum mixture with an Illamasqua Lip Brush.


Chat with Spob live this Friday 6th July from 12.30-1.30pm on our facebook and twitter pages! If you can’t make it for the live chat, post your questions now and tag #Illamasquaawards on twitter to receive your answers!
