Illamasqua - Dark Angel

Illamasqua is a cosmetic brand which promotes experimentation as well as self expression through the way we look & is committed to changing attitudes towards subcultures. This month, in tribute to Sophie Lancaster, Illamasqua have commissioned a short film 'Dark Angel' directed by the award winning french director Fursey Teyssier. The film gives a haunting rendition of what happened to Sophie - on the 11th of August 20 year old Sophie & her boyfriend Robert Matby were kicked & stamped on & left unconscious, for nothing more than looking different, Sophie later died from her injuries.

The aim of the film is to raise awareness of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and generate £500,000 to help educate young people about tolerance. Since Sophie’s death, the Foundation has been working with behavioural experts Huthwaite International, to put together an interactive youth workshop that does just that. But this essential education programme can only be delivered with your help. Please, please show your support and watch the film.
As well as being available to view online, the film will also be running on MTV from 26th November – Sophie’s birthday.
Stand up for Sophie - act now and buy an Illamasqua Sophie eye pencil, wristband or simply make a donation. £3 from the Sophie pencil purchased and all proceeds from the wristband sales go directly to the Foundation. See for more info.
