It’s cold, it’s grey and The X Factor has started, which means we’re officially on the countdown to Christmas (yes, really!) To celebrate this momentous occasion, welcome one and all, to the launch of our September #StyleBattle™ YAY!

This month we’re looking to crown the most fashionable users snapping their new autumn style, so here’s the lowdown on what you can WIN this time around…

> A VIP Photo shoot: We’re talking the works here! You will be dressed by a celebrity stylist, have your hair and make-up done by the pros at RUSH hair and Illamasqua, before taking your place in front of the camera for your shoot. If that wasn’t cool enough, you will be featured not only on the Shopcade App, but also appear in IDGAF Magazine! Impressive, huh?!

Fashion Union goodies: The winners will also receive some gems from our brand sponsor this month, the amazing Fashion Union!

So what else is new this month? Well, we welcome on board some amazing new Style Council members, including the lovely Danielle Peazer AKA Idle Lane, stylist Kristine Kilty and fashion photographer Rachell Smith, to name but a few!

Here’s the rest of the council you need to be impressing this month to be crowned the winner!

Charlotte Savoury is Illamasqua’s International Brand Ambassador. She joined cult British beauty brand Illamasqua in 2009 at Debenhams, Cardiff whilst studying BA Hons in Art Practice, specialising in Fine Art. Once she graduated in 2011, Charlotte joined Illamasqua’s Art Team in the role of Key Artist.

Charlotte finds inspiration from everything around her; from feelings, thoughts and imagination to nature, words, music, colours, textures and the future. Her artistic influences range from Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud to fashion designer Gareth Pugh and Illamasqua’s Creative Director Alex Box.

Today, Charlotte is fuelled by creative energy and thrives on pushing boundaries, focusing on unusual textures and alternative colours. She strives to continue her journey embracing individuality, whilst working with a team of talented individuals that inspire one another.

“In the two years that I have worked as a make-up artist at Illamasqua, I have seen people become more experimental with make-up and open their minds to a world of colour that they would have normally shied away from. It’s definitely onwards and upwards to a brighter bolder future in the world of make-up.” – Charlotte, Illamasqua Key Artist

Charlotte’s Top Illamasqua Tips:

  • Illamasqua Sealing Gel – “Illamasqua Sealing Gel is a must for stay put brows and water proofing eyeliner under the lash line.”
  • Illamasqua Lipstick – “Illamasqua Lipsticks are a prominent fixture on shoots with me. I use them as paints on the face and body. They work great as a quick eye base and as a blusher too.”
  • “Mix Illamasqua Skin Base in shade SB01 to your foundation to illuminate and highlight paler skin tones.”
  • “Apply a lighter shade of Illamasqua Concealer or Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Vow under the brow to lift and highlight the brow area whilst concealing those new growing hairs!”

Summer is offish here, Shopcaders and you know what that means… it’s time for our July #StyleBattle™ to launch!

Last month’s winners, @styleskittle and @alexandertuffley1 took part in a VIP photo shoot at Shopcade HQ, to be be featured in WEARECOLLISION’s September Issue, and were given tickets to Wireless to enjoy some festi-fun in the sun!

For July, however we are going ALL out. We are stepping up our game and looking for only the most fierce and fabulous fashionistas to become the faces of July.

The winners will be featured all across our social media as the official faces of Shopcade, take part in their very own fashion photoshoot with celeb stylist Fabienne Hebrard, have their make-up done by the pros at Illamasqua, plus have their bouffant expertly quaffed by the artistic team at Rush Hair.

Phew! If that wasn’t enough, the winners will also be walking away with goody bags piled high with pieces from Villain, FYT & CO and more!

So, what do you need to do to win this awesome prize? Well, it’s pretty darn simple. In a nutshell, we want you to fill our app with your top looks on a daily basis!

There are a few rules you need to abide by however; it needs to be a full length look (no close ups of your chin or anything weird) and you MUST use the hashtag #stylebattle to qualify. For the full T&C’s check them out here.

Other than that, go mad! We want to see you all over our app 😉 Here’s the Style Council you need to impress this time around…
