Valentine's Day Series : Illamasqua ' Throb ' Inspired

Ever since I saw these promo pictures a couple days ago I fell in love with the new Illamasqua 'Throb' collection for Valentine's Day. It also coincided with the Valentines Series that I'm doing and I did say I'd be doing a varied of looks from wearable to creative. How perfect !

Keep in mind the model is considerably lighter than I am & this is an inspired look, none of the products are what are used in the actual promo pictures. I hope you keep that in mind & enjoy.
