Our very own Head of Professional Development, Spob, was lucky enough to work on The King’s speech and is so pleased to see it win such great awards.

“We filmed for 3 days in freezing temperatures in an old rugby ground near Bradford. But the locals were amazing and such fun. We had to keep reapplying encounter lipstick to the ladies as their lips looked blue from the cold. Heroine and Justify making perfect socket lines and eyebrow cake in thunder.” Spob, Head of Professional Development for Illamasqua

Spob wanted to send her personal congratulations to everyone on the Make-Up & Hair team; the Designer, Frances Hannon and Make-Up Artists, Paul Gooch, Nana Fischer and Karen Cohen.

Congratulations to The King’s Speech.
