issue five : a feast for gluttony
THE sixth INSTALMENT OF OUR UNTAINTED X MASTERED FEATURE
With sugar and its negative impact on the body being such a topical issue right now, recent Makeup:Mastered graduate, Renata Sangaleti, explored healthier sugar alternatives to create these edible looks.
Think agave syrup, coconut sugar and stevia.
Be good to your body inside and out.

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.
READ ABOUT renata and her teams APPROACH TO THE BRIEF, AS WELL AS THE CHALLENGES SHE FACED.
The challenge for this brief was very high and stressful at first, Renata really had to step outside her comfort zone. To use kitchen ingredients that she got in her cupboard and organic products to do Makeup it wasn't an easy job and when they narrow it down to use no sugar, it became even harder... but not impossible.
She paired up with extremely talented art director Benedicte Arora and the incredibly creative photographer Henri T. They worked together in the concept to achieve this outstanding result.
“It was stressful, however a wonderful and fun project. I’ve really stepped outside my comfort zone, used ingredients that I never expected to use as makeup. It was great to experiment. I am extremely pleased and happy with the outcome off this experiment. Without Ben (art director), Henri (photographer), Ellie (Stylist) and James (model) none of this would be possible. It takes a great team to accomplish incredible results. Being publish in Untained Magazine is unreal. It’s the reward of our determination, dedication and love for what we do.”
