Introducing Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Makeup Collection For Spring 2012


An explosion of your alter ego, Human Fundamentalism is about becoming who you are and not what society tells you to be. Beauty isn’t about conformity but the fundamental human desire to express your inner beauty on the outside.

Human Fundamentalism is the unique spirit and fundamental human drive for individuality. It’s a belief, a movement and an emotion. A connection with the spirit of the age and its global motifs. You are your own human hybrid, a unique nomad of street cultures and global trends.

Alex Box
Illamasqua Creative Director

Human Fundamentalism is a celebration of humanity’s connection with colour, where blinding flashes of kaleidoscopic pigment provides a sharp contrast to warmer tones, resulting in a saturated palette that catapults your alter ego to the next level of self-expression. Mix contrasting textures – including a myriad of mattes, glorious creams and rich metallics to express your true self. This is nonconformity at its most fundamental and at its unpredictable best.

Human Fundamentalism to me is physical expression of your self-belief, sharing your opinions with colour that shape the narrative of your thoughts and inner self. It is a statement of conviction and colour confidence, it states, this is me and now see what I see, be tinted by how I express colour and behold an oblivion to social convention and constraints.
