UNTAINTED X MASTERED BRIEF

The brief set for the Makeup:Mastered alumni was to create a beauty editorial of 4 – 6 images around the theme of: “A Feast for Gluttony” and create the looks using only edible ingredients/products.

They were asked to use what was already in their kits and kitchens in order to step outside of their comfort zone & experiment with makeup unconventionally. 

The objective was not to buy more stuff, but use up what we already have and begin to think differently about the ingredients in our beauty products.

This was a challenging brief for me as I was not able to use makeup. Instead, I only primed the skin and used herbs, spices and corn oil to achieve an array of textures and embellishments.

I played with the concept of 'gluttony' by considering the colour intensity, material quantity and volume of the accompanying images.

Although I found the brief difficult, I really enjoyed the challenge as it encouraged me to think outside of the box. Thankfully my model had amazing skin so I was able to just add a whole bunch of mixed textures.
