Illamasqua Generation Q Makeup Collection for AW 2012

I am loving this  new Illamasqua AW 2012 makeup collection called Generation Q with a beautiful lady Evelyn (72!) , gorgeous makeu-up artist Mairi (39), beautiful Patricia (55) , Ian (40) , Karen (40+), Amrit (21) and Georgia (22) on the promo photos.

Here are the promo images. Aren’t they beautiful?

‘Generation Q – is generation YOU! It’s what they tell you not to do; it’s what you see your true self through. It’s what is old and what is new. What you know and what you knew. It’s what you feel and what is true” Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director

I also love what Julian Kynaston, Illamasqua Founder said: “Illamasqua customers will not be told what to do and when to do it” .

I love Evelyn’s lips and Mairi’s eyes!

I really love Patricia’s lip colour and nail varnish

Ian looks cool with such makeup, contouring is nice.

Karen, who, in her own words ‘would NEVER EVER wear “natural” make-up.’

And here are Amrit and Georgia,  beautiful young girls

  1. I love it! At 68 I am still very much interested in beauty products and looking fashionable. I could care less about looking young. Looking like a teenager or twenty something is much over-rated. My goal is to look happy, healthy, vibrant, and confident. That’s sexy–at any age 🙂
