Illamasqua The Final Act of Self-Expre​ssion

Illamasqua have taken the controversial step to collaborate with family funeral directors, Leverton & Sons, to launch an innovative service bringing ritual beauty to the final act for those who love to self-express.

Offering professional funeral make-up transformations applied by a specially trained Illamasqua make-up artist, the Final Act of Self-Expression 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 and prices start from £450.

Sorry for being morbid, but what are your thoughts on make-up on dead people? Would you consider it?


  1. Reminds me of six feet under! I think it's a great idea

  2. Interesting...I guess some people do want to look their best at this time as they have special outfits, so why not make-up too?
