Taking the cake for unlikely collaboration of the century is British makeup brand Illamasqua, hooking up with Leverton & Sons funeral directors on a professional makeup service to doll up those who have passed to the great beyond. Only offered in London, where the funeral home is located, you can arrange to glamorously enter the afterlife for the price of £450 (approximately $700). While this service does have a pretty major creep-factor, I have to say it is an ingenious idea for those who want to carry their beauty legacy six feet under. Plus it totally falls in line with the bold, edgy self-expression that the brand encourages. For more info, read up on the Illamasqua blog.
