Iconic British beauty brand Illamasqua comes to the Mile this month and you're invited to celebrate its arrival. Cosmetics from the line will be stocked at Bloomingdales on Michigan Avenue, and a few special guests will be on hand to celebrate the products' arrival on September 12.
Stop by Bloomie's ground-floor beauty department at 3pm, at which time the Illamasqua beauty counter will be up and running in the department store. Major players in the company, including founder Julian Kynaston, US makeup artist Gina Novotchin and UK makeup artist Leena Adesara, will all be in attendance. The artists will face off in a battle of US vs UK to see who can create the most eye-catching looks using Illamasqua's signature neon and metallic products.
