Today I’m sharing with you what is not only a red hot and smokin’ eye look, but an incredibly worthwhile cause.
You may remember the tragic assault that Sophie Lancaster suffered in 2007 from seeing it on the news – Sadly, for no other reason than that her assailants ‘didn’t like the look of her’, Sophie was kicked to death because she looked different. The Sophie Lancaster Foundation is now dedicated in her name to Stamping Out Predjudice Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere (S.O.P.H.I.E.)
But why am I telling you this? Well, a reader of Florence Finds correctly assumed that I would be interested in the collaboration between The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and Illamasqua, the cult make-up brand that is known for it’s unapologetic style. Illamasqua is not afraid to be different.
Not only is it completely gorgeous, I know there are lots of you out there who really struggle with the smokey eye look. The S.O.P.H.I.E. pencil is just £13 and created especially to help you easily recreate the look at home. And £3 from every sale goes straight to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
If you head on over to the Illamasqua site, there’s a whole world of slightly subversive and unique make up perfect for making a statement. There’s also a brilliant video showing you how to create the S.O.P.H.I.E. I at home.
I really wanted to get this look demonstrated on me, just to show you all that it can work on real women like you but sadly ran out of time. Instead, do let me know if it’s a look you aspire to creating or in fact if you already know Illamasqua and their fabulous products.
Has there ever been a better excuse to buy make up?
