Reveal your inner spark!
Introducing the first collection of make-up for the whole body from Illamasqua…
Body Electrics is inspired by the power of kinetic energy, the art of movement, the fluidity of the body in motion. The collection is an anthology of creams, powders and dry body oils infused with light, shimmer and shine, designed to highlight and contour your whole body. Containing hyper-pigmented light-reflecting particles that ignite the skin with intense colours and finishes, each product in the range has been created to accentuate the body’s every twist and turn to exquisite perfection, ensuring you exude a confidence that’s more than skin deep.
The new collection is supported by an expressive, avant-garde visual campaign shot by leading fashion image-makers Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones. With stunning make-up by Alex Box, nails by Sophy Robson, and styling by Dazed’s Katie Shillingford, Illamasqua will harness the power of movement and take body make-up to a whole new level…

I already made about Back to the Beach collection with my wishlist but now lets take a look at the face charts.
There are 7 Face Charts for this collection and I like almost all of them.
To The Beach
The iconic look of all those who go To the Beach. Luxuriously bronzed, and still a Flurry of Fun!
Rosemary and Thyme
Sunny-day bronze meets the get-away gal’s favourite, and freshest, touch – sea green.
A natural firecracker. This is your look: Blatant, brilliant, bronzed. Full-colour fabulous!
Sweet and Punchy
The tangy, surfside tones of marine green found in this high-summer look.

Zoya just publishes the information about their new Summer 2010 collection. I always wondered why this brand is called Zoya which is a women’s name for those of you who don’t know. So this is from the history from the brand:
“Art of Beauty was founded in 1986 by Zoya and Michael Reyzis. They had a shared vision, which evolved from a small nail salon into a spa focusing on natural nails, skin care and alternative European herbal treatments. Today, the company has grown to become a manufacturer of the most innovative professional beauty products ever created.
Zoya, originally a classical pianist in Russia, earned her Cosmetology license in 1979 when she and her husband Michael immigrated to the United States. While pianist jobs were limited, the world of cosmetology offered a new profession and a means by which to build a new career. Through Zoya’s hard work, and a demand for quality and healthy, natural ingredients for her clients, it became evident that there was a need for the perfect products. Responding to his wife’s requests. Michael, an advanced chemist, developed and patented unique products such as anti-wrinkle treatments and shampoo and conditioning treatments for the salon & spa. He also created the first working fast drying topcoat and the longest wearing, toxin free natural nail polish, revolutionizing the nail industry.”
All this story makes me want to try this brand even more but it is pretty hard to get it in Europe. This is why I contacted Zoya and they were so kind to give me some contacts were we, Europeans, can get their products! But back to the new collection Flash & Sparkle Collection for Summer 2010.

“Karl Lagerfeld gave me three key words: Neon Baroque, Chemical Pastels and Liquid Silver. For the lips I used the new Summer 2010 Rouge Allure Lipstick in Genial. This coral shade perfectly matched the Technicolor and Neon Baroque spirit Karl wanted for the makeup at this show.”- Peter Philips
