The Mixing Pot

In my latest beauty story we hand picked the most notable current beauty trends and threw them in the mixing pot with artistic inspiration from two of history’s most influential artists.

Bold lashes and brows, crystal clear skin and rich pigments are the elements of a make-up look that are trending today. Yet seeing the same trends done over and over again become boring- make-up is about expressing yourself, it should be seen as an art, and not as a uniform. In this story we embrace what is old, and what is new in the art of make-up. We mix modern day beauty trends with abstract lines, shapes and colours inspired by 19th century artists Kandinksy and Miro.
