You've probably been putting off planning your post-mortem makeup look, but it's time to settle these important matters. The makeup brand Illamasqua is partnering with the London funeral directors Leverton & Sons to supply a professional makeup artist for your funeral. From Illamasqua's blog:

Illamasqua encourages people to self-express and embrace their alter ego in every way - why should this be any different when you pass away? It is a celebration of life, and one that should be indulged for your last glamorous look.

The rite of passage to the afterlife has been of central importance to human culture for thousands of years. To have the best mahogany, the finest, lining, the best stallions ... are today chosen in tribute to the life lived.

To wear the most fabulous make-up applied by a professionally trained make-up artist for your final journey is the ultimate statement of celebration.

$700 may seem a little steep, but do you really want to burden your loved ones with finding a shadow color that makes your (hopefully closed) eyes pop? You can take it with you.
