Make Up Is Art

A little dream of mine has always been to work on a makeup book, so when last year approached me to help collaborate on their book- Makeup is Art – I jumped at the chance. It was put together by creative directors – Lan Nquyen (William Tempest’s makeup artist) and Jana Ririnui (Head of education of AOFM) .. It’s more of a creative insight on how a makeup artist works and gets their ideas rather than a step by step how to manual on makeup. I think it’s a great resource for anyone interested in becoming a makeup artists or who is just interested in what we do.

It was fun but challenging coming up with a few concepts for the book. I tried to add a little interesting twist on each idea: for the 1950’s look I used the original Barbie Doll as a reference – making the model look almost plastic and over emphasising her top lip like the original Barbie’s. I added a splash of I Love Lucy into it too.

It only has been out a few short weeks but it’s doing really well. It’s available to buy at Charles Fox and Soho book store in London or at AOFM.
