Street Style: Northern Edition


Northern Edition

Earlier this month we headed up North to continue our Street Style search! Whilst visiting press to show off our new collections (keep an eye out!) we headed out on the streets of Liverpool and Leeds to see the make-up trends you’ve been wearing!

If you missed last month’s special ‘Vintage Edition’ of Street Style, check it out here!

P1010658First up in Liverpool we met Helen rocking this neutral look. Recreate by using our NEW Precision Brow Gel in Awe which is the perfect shade for blondes, Colouring Eye Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E. in the waterline to darken the eye like Helen and finish with Glamore Lipstick in Minx for a ‘your lips but better’ look!

We’ve noticed you’re wearing lipstick, are you a lipstick kind of girl and always wear one?


If you could only wear one colour for the rest of your life what would it be?

Probably this colour, it’s good for the daytime as it’s similar to my natural lip colour.

Where would you say you get inspiration for your look?

Instagram probably



Next we spotted Lou who we had to talk to! Her favourite product is eye liner so we suggest using our Precision Ink in Abyss to create similar drama on your eyes. For the brows try Eye Brow Cake in Vehement, our darkest shade that will last all day!

What would you say is your favourite beauty product?

Eye liner.

How would you sum up your style?

This is my typical look, I wear this make-up everyday. I do change my hair often though!

What is the craziest colour you’ve had it?

Blue all over!

What is your favourite lip colour?

Dark purple.

Joanne and Jacqueline


The lovely Joanne and Jacqueline had just come from Peaches and Cream so were dressed to impress! With both of their favourite products being bronzer, try our Bronzing Duo’s for a sun-kissed natural look similar. Our Neutral Palette is great for creating a natural smokey eye for day or night!

You’ve head of Illamasqua, which products do you like?

I use the Skin Base Foundation.

What is your number 1 favourite product?

Both: Bronzer!

Where do you get inspiration for your looks?

Pinterest, Instagram… We follow Peaches and Cream

What kind of colours do you like to wear?

Mostly browns and always false lashes!

Crystal and Tiffany


Crystal and Tiffany were wandering around Liverpool when we spotted their vibrant coats. Both girls kept their looks natural with a statement lip! For Crystal’s pinky-red, recreate by using Glamore Lipstick in Glissade and for Tiffany’s classic red, use our Lipstick in Box to achieve a similar look.

What are your favourite colours to wear?

C: Pink, red and orange

T: Hot yellow like my coat!

You’re both wearing red lipstick, do you wear other colours?

C: Yeah I also use pink

What is a staple piece in your wardrobe?

T: A white blouse.

Laura and Amy


The lovely Laura and Amy also opted for neutral daytime looks. For a subtle contour try the Sculpting Duo to add some definition to the face like Amy has here. For a pretty day time lip, try a gloss such as Sheer Lipgloss in Intimacy.

If you could create a look with just 3 products, what would you choose?

L: Mascara, brows and concealer

A: Brows, mascara and lipstick

What are your favourite colours to your for your make-up?

Both: Neutrals and nudes

A: For eyes yeah, I do like a bold lip though!

Where do you get your inspiration from? 

Both: YouTube!

We love how Lorna matched her lips to her hair here, Glamore Lipstick in Glissade would be a perfect match for this! For the feline flicks, use Precision Gel Liner for a long-lasting and water-resistant finish.

Where would you say your find inspiration for your style and make-up?

Loads of different people. I really like people like Katy Perry, I really love her make-up! I like watching things like America’s Next Top Model and watching the really extreme shoots they do and bringing it back from that.

If you could only wear 3 make-up products every day what would they be?

Eye liner, lipstick and eyebrows!

Do you follow anyone on social media channels that you get inspiration from?

Not really no. For me Instagram I use to follow my friends.

What are your favourite colours to wear? 

Red, black, turquoise and purple.



Sophie opted for a blushed neutral look here, recreate her look using Powder Blusher in Chased on the apples of the cheeks and Glamore Lipstick in Luster on the lips!

What would you say inspires your make-up look?

I don’t really know, I just like wearing neutral colours and maybe some magazines.

If you could only wear one lipstick shade for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A nice berry shade.

What are the three products you couldn’t live without?

Foundation, mascara and blusher.



Laura’s bright lips stood out to us a mile off! If you like an orange toned red like this, Lipstick in Liable would be a perfect shade! If you can’t go a day without foundation, Skin Base Foundation is the perfect choice, it primes, hydrates and controls shine in one and is completely buildable depending on how you like your coverage!

Where do you get inspiration for your make-up?

I just see nice make-up in magazines such as Glamour, Cosmo and try to recreate it.

How would you sum up your style?

Again in magazines I just see nice clothes and get inspiration from them, I like the usual high street shops such as Zara, River Island etc…

If you could only wear 3 make-up products each day what would they be?

I’d say foundation, mascara and lipstick.



What are the 3 key products in your make-up bag?

Mascara, eye liner and lipstick.

If you could only wear one lipstick shade for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A nice nude.

Do you wear Illamasqua products?

Yes, I’m actually wearing the eye liner and new Precision Brow Gel now. Brows are really important to me, my look doesn’t feel complete without them.

Do you take inspiration from anyone in terms of make-up and style?

I like looking at new trends and seeing what is fashionable and then try to recreate the looks.

What would you say is the most prominent colour in your make-up bag and wardrobe?




Shopping in Illamasqua we found Dal, stocking up on lipstick! We love the bright pink lipstick she is wearing here, for a similar look try Lipstick in Eurydice. Another product she couldn’t live without is mascara, our Masquara is lengthens, defines and dramatises in one!

Have you used a lot of Illamasqua products in the past?

Yeah I have! I seem to have left every other brand and just keep coming back to Illamasqua.

That’s great! Can we ask why?

I find it’s a lot more intimate in the shops, customer service is great and the products last so much longer because the pigmentation is great so you get a really intense colour. Especially being darker skinned that’s what you want!

Is lipstick a statement part of your look?

Yeah! It depends where I’m going but with Illamasqua because they’re so highly pigmented they’re good because they last! I think I’ve pretty much got all the colours now!

If you could only wear one shade for the rest of your life, what would it be?

It would have to be a pink. I love the nudes but pink goes with pretty much everything and it brightens up your skin tone and make you look that little bit fresher.

If you could only wear 3 products everyday, which would you choose?

Foundation, mascara and lipstick.


We hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s Street Style post! Thank you to the girls that took part in this Northern post!
