The Edit

Graduate show season

Creative innovations, bespoke make-up concepts and avant garde designs have swept over London over the last month as the college graduate shows came to town! From London College of Fashion to West Thames to Southampton Solent, Illamasqua have been supporting the young talent emerging across the country at the students final shows.


Deep contouring and defined, rich lips rocked the runway at the Southampton Solent show…




















The LCF show saw the students work transformed from portfolio to live art. Alter egos were laid bare as we were led through the different levels and lands within the space amidst birdcages, feather pods and other worldly creatures.



Head of Professional Development Spob will be visiting many more colleges in the coming weeks. If you’re an aspiring or professional artist, enter the Distinction in Make-up Artistry Awards for the chance to win money-can’t-buy prizes and career launching opportunities! Click here to learn more.


Congratulations to all the students and a huge thank you for inviting us to indulge in your Graduate shows!
