Designing the Look : A Make-Up Artist Showcase

When it comes to designers, those who specialize in make-up, making the body their canvas and intensifying or erasing the body’s natural expressions, are amazing artists that deserve a nod or two of recognition. They use the natural definitions and contours of their subject to tell their tales and to bring the entire image together in one masterful choir of epic make-up designs that not only scream fashion, but they also sing artistry. These dynamos of design have to do more than just highlight and shade, they have to complete the design of the look.

Through incorporating both the fashion and the models themselves, the make-up artists are responsible for providing the proverbial finishing touches on the overall look that is being portrayed. Below we have gathered a few examples from some truly inspiring artists within the make-up design arena. We hope you enjoy the following showcase, and find some ignition for your imagination!
