This year sees Virgin Atlantic celebrate its 30th anniversary and after recently revealing the redesign of the iconic red uniforms this summer, Illamasqua is incredibly excited to hop on board with Virgin Atlantic and be the make-up of choice for all ground staff and cabin crew.The collaboration between these two British brands will see Virgin Atlantic’s new uniform, which captures the renowned glamour and style of the cabin crew, mirrored with a new fresh make-up look designed by Illamasqua exclusively for the airline.
Virgin Atlantic’s new look conveys simple yet incredibly stylish charm and this can be seen in the make-up with soft natural definition to the eyes and brows and subtle contouring to create a complementary shape to the face.
In addition, Illamasqua has created a lipstick to specifically match Virgin Atlantic’s famous pantone red to ensure staff can maintain their red-hot iconic lip look. The Glamore Lipstick is a hydrating, satin finish lipstick, appropriately named Virgin and offers ultimate comfort and smooth application without compromising on color; it is the faultless finishing touch to the Virgin Atlantic look.
“When I think of Virgin Atlantic, I automatically think class, sophistication and glamour,” says Clare Lille, South Trainer for Illamasqua. “This look we have created for the cabin crew & ground staff oozes elegance and sophistication that is easily created on yourself. We wanted to embrace femininity and empower women of all skin tones.
Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Virgin is the finishing touch that signifies everything we wanted to achieve with the make-up. It’s got the balance of that classic red that never leaves your handbag and the iconic touch of Virgin Atlantic glamour.”
Rebecca Creer, Global Spas and Styling Manager for Virgin Atlantic commented, “The design of our new uniform has provided us with the perfect opportunity to re-look at our overall style to ensure that it not only fits with the new uniform but also our brand.
A key part of our look has always been the iconic red lips and Illamasqua really understands color and their lipsticks are known for their high pigmentation content which really makes them stand out from the crowd. The new Virgin colour they have created complements our new uniform beautifully and will take the iconic Virgin red lip into the future”
Kirby wears Skin Base Foundation and Skin Base Lift to create her flawless skin finish, followed by Sculpting Duo and Powder Blusher in Lover to add a natural flush of color and definition to the cheekbones. The eyes are created using the Neutral Palette, which provides a quad of shadows that work together to add awakening brightness and soft smoke. These are then further defined with a generous coat of Masquara in Raven. Finally, the look is finished with Lip Pencil in Lust and that all-important Glamore Lipstick in Virgin.
