Listen, death is nothing to joke about nor is losing someone very special or near to your heart but I admit I did burst out laughing when I saw Illamasqua’s newest collaboration.
They went THERE……..
Is it April Fool’s Day? I dunno but I guess there isn’t any joke about the fact that Illamasqua has teamed up with family funeral directors Leverton & Sons to offer what they call the Final Act of Self Expression.
This service encourages beauty lovers to plan for their final transformation, no I’m not joking, as in the afterlife as in laying in your coffin, dead, looking all kinds of beautifully made up!
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to look amazing in your after life thanks to fabulously applied makeup by a professionally trained artist.
This service is available from Illamasqua and Leverton & Sons in the London area only starting this July. The Final Act of Self-Expression service can be booked as part of a pre-arranged funeral with prices starting at £450.
I’m honestly at a loss for words here.
I’m not sure if it’s creative and amazingly brilliant or just bloody morbid.
What do you think?
Do you want to be laid to rest in your finest makeup?
Would you pay for such a service?
Is it makeup obsession that goes too far?
