Halloween Spooktacular: Spot the Spooky Blogger – Behind the Scenes

Ever wondered what a Halloween shoot is like? Today our Press Intern, Kirsty, takes us behind the scenes of our extra-special blogger collaboration this year! Here’s her account of one of the best days we’ve had in some time…

As most of you will have already seen we ran a very spooky competition this Halloween, whereby we transformed three well-known UK beauty bloggers into our Lady Raven, Zerlindah and Ruby Snow.

Did you guess right?

If you didn’t have a chance to enter here they are in all their Halloween-glory.


From left to right they were – Jane from British Beauty Blogger, Ree from Really Ree and Rose from Mixed Gems!

Going to our School of Make-up Art for the Illamasqua Halloween Spooktacular was a day filled with extreme contouring, precise brows and a lot of hair.

Upon arrival, Mika and Spob were waiting with brushes, products, hair pieces, wigs and tights at the ready!


Each of the ladies would start their transformation with Spob, trialing a variety of wigs and accessories to see which would suit their character the most. After this, it was time to leave the dressing station and move on to make up with Mika.


Each look was created with undivided attention, modelled on our Halloween face charts (take a look here). Jane, Ree and Rose were all dedicated to the cause, letting both Spob and Mika go all out with creating the perfect Halloween look!



Getting to be part of the competition and watch each look develop was by far one of my favourite moments at Illamasqua so far!

Will you be trying out our face charts this Halloween?
