Beauty Bloggers give back

news currently has a charity auction and the proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders. If you’re a makeup junkie like me, check the cosmetics for auction. If you want to bid, you must register first. Registration is free. If you win the bid for any of the listed cosmetics, shipping is already included in your bid. I’m eying one of the bundles there but I won’t tell what it is ;)

Illamasqua collaborates with an established funeral parlor

beauty news

This is just so Illamasqua! I love them more for pulling this off!

According to their blog

We have collaborated with established family funeral directors Leverton & Sons to launch an innovative service bringing ritual beauty to the final act for those who to self-express…

This unique service encourages people for whom making-up is an intimate part of their identity to plan their final transformation – one that pays tribute to who they were in life and how they want to enter the afterlife …

Illamasqua encourages people to self-express and embrace their alter ego in every way – why should this be any different when you pass away? It is a celebration of life, and one that should be indulged for your last glamorous look.

The rite of passage to the afterlife has been of central importance to human culture for thousands of years. To have the best mahogany, the finest, lining, the best stallions … are today chosen in tribute to the life lived.

To wear the most fabulous make-up applied by a professionally trained make-up artist for your final journey is the ultimate statement of celebration.

This service is available from Illamasqua and Leverton & Sons in the London area only from July 2011. The Final Act of Self-Expression service can be booked as part of a pre-arranged funeral by calling Leverton & Sons on 0207 387 6075

Prices starting from £450 subject to availability.

If only they offer this service in the Philippines… Since they don’t, I’m choosing cremation.
