Illamasqua Launches Funeral Makeup Service

Creepy or Cool? Illamasqua Launches Funeral Makeup Service


If you dread the idea of going into the afterlife without perfect eyeliner, makeup brand Illamasqua will now let you plan out the makeup you want to wear at your own funeral. "To wear the most fabulous makeup applied by a professionally trained makeup artist for your final journey is the ultimate statement of celebration," according to the company's blog, and they're billing the service as "the final act of self-expression."

Leaving a beautiful corpse will cost you about $800, and you'll have to choose Leverton & Sons in the London area as your funeral home, since Illamasqua is providing the service in collaboration with those specific undertakers. Some women won't leave home without their "face" on, but do you think the people who are mourning you will really care if your eye shadow isn't perfectly coordinated with your casket lining?

One of my own funeral memories happened when I was about ten, when my mom's friend passed. She was very close to me too. One of my mom's other friends, after seeing her in the casket, began to apply her own lipstick to the body saying it looked better on her. It was horrifying. I pass on this.

Because every woman wants to look like "Mommie Dearest" in their coffin. Right.

I'll pass, it's just going to fade away anyone. I don't even want anyone to see my corpse when I die besides the undertakers anyway.

It's Illamasqua, so I will take the makeup for my funeral. The idea of our own mortality will always make people uncomfortable. It's hard to imagine yourself as old or dying, until it happens.
