Illamasqua Artist Training

At Illamasqua, we are bringing truly professional cosmetics to the high street for the first time. We are commited to providing excellent training to support our incredible artists and to encourage and inspire their creativity and development.

One of the great things about our new office is there a dedicated training room that Trudi [our Head of Training and Professional Strategy] and Daniel [our International Trainer] have been utilising for the past three days.

Rachel and Dominic from Debenhams Belfast, Amanda and Shelly from Selfridges London, Phillip from Selfridges Trafford and Emily-Jane from Selfridges Birmingham all came along for the first Illamasqua artist training in the new office.

I have been quite fascinated by everything that has been going on in that room! Models have been coming and going and deliveries have been coming from Pret A Manger every day – including that delicious chocolate covered popcorn… Yum. Oh, and I’ve just spied a bag of donuts. What is it about getting a group of people together from Illamasqua and we always end up with a big bag of donuts? Not that I’m complaining.

I digress.

The final day’s training yesterday encouraged plenty of creativity, artistic expression and using the face as a canvas …


The palette…
