Ready for the Weekend: Featuring Caroline Throneburg


This weeks Ready for the Weekend look was inspired but the amazing make-up artist Caroline Throneburg. I am a huge fan of all her make-up looks and find myself looking through her Instagram for beautiful looks all the time! The look I have chosen for this post is a gorgeous black smokey eye, beautifully highlighted cheek and pop of colour on the lip. This is one of my favourite looks so I will definitely be trying Carolines look out this weekend.


This look is perfect for a night out, and you could even tone it down slightly to create a beautiful day-time smokey eye. I have chosen 5 Illamasqua products to help you achieve a look similar to Caroline’s, so if you want to find out what these are keep reading!


In order to create a black smokey eye with a slight shimmer, the perfect product for this is our Pure Pigment in Android. In order to add to the intesity of the black and create a winged liner, Precision Gel Eyeliner is perfect!



I am loving the pop of colour on the lips! This gorgeous glossy lip in a pink/blueberry colour can be created by using our Intense Lipgloss in Boost.



I love how highlighted Caroline’s cheeks are in her look! In order to achieve a shimmery dewy highlight along the top of the cheekbone try our product Gleam in Aurora. To create a beautiful flush of pink across the cheek Powder Blusher in Hussy is perfect!


Hope you have enjoyed this post! If you love this look and try it out yourself this weekend be sure to send us a picture by #Illamasqua on Intagram, @Illamasqua on Twitter or post a photo on our Facebook wall. Also please send any looks you would like us to feature in a Ready for the Weekend post in the future! Also be sure to check out Caroline’s Instagram for more AMAZING make-up looks!

Until next time, Samantha x
