Los Angeles based beauty photographer Julia Kuzmenko McKim has an incredible portfolio of diverse styles and designs, but her collaboration with make up goliath Vlada Haggerty titled “Stripes & Polka Dots” hits the spot.  Featuring models Eugena Washington and Ekaterina Koba, both the styles of make up and photography are remarkable.

Lip Licking Good.

Rainbows, honeycombs, pixels and even famous Japanese works of art — there’s almost nothing Canadian makeup artist Andrea Reed can’t recreate using a few brushes and a variety of lipsticks.  Going by the name Girl Grey Beauty, Reed is known for sharing drool-worthy lip art creations as well as handy beauty tutorials. It’s painful to admit, but her works really made us realize we have no game whatsoever when it comes to primpin’.  Reed, among other incredible makeup gurus, really pushes the limits of modern art, showing that it no longer belongs solely in galleries and museums, but can be found in the most unexpected places, even a human face.

Juan Sanchez Castillo Miniature Figures on Faces


juan-ssnchez-castillo-places-miniatures-on-faces-for-making-it-up-series-designboom-01

Using miniature figures and makeup, murcia-based photographer juan sánchez castillo creates small landscapes and scenes directly onto the face of a model. ‘Making it up’ comprises a series of photos which animate tiny workers and children interacting with the female’s facial features. In one example, white powder transforms the model’s face into a snowy panorama, as cheekbones become mountaintops and the bridge of a nose visualizes as a steep, snow-covered slope, all the while small-scale characters are pictured sledding and rolling snowballs down the surface of skin. ‘Painters at work’ presents two tiny overall-clad men, attempting to apply color to the giant lips that face them — with part of the lipstick removed, the scene simulates the painter’s work in progress. Each vignette presents a combination of body art and miniatures, creating imaginative and whimsical compositions.

Monica Bellucci For Dolce & Gabbana.


Monica Bellucci has teamed up with Dolce & Gabbana for a limited edition lipstick line designed to reflect a woman’s “state of mind”.  After the announcement of Kate Winslet’s charity makeup line for French beauty giant Lancôme last year, Italian star Bellucci is the latest actress to venture into the realm.  Called the Monica Lipstick Collection, the range will comprise six shades costing $32 each and is scheduled to hit stores May 12.  “The idea for the collection was to create different shades, different colors depending on your mood of the day, your state of mind,” the actress told WWD February 17.  “I love all shades in the collection and feel drawn to the different colors, depending on how I feel.”  The advertising campaign for the Monica Lipstick Collection was captured by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, known for their work with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Missoni and Giorgio Armani.  Evoking classic Italian cinema, it is set to run in publications across Italy, America, the UK, Russia and the Middle East this May.  Bellucci is also a new face of the Italian fashion house’s beauty collection, joining other Dolce & Gabbana Make Up actress front women Scarlett Johansson and Felicity Jones.

Kate Winslet Goes Nude.


In a brand new ad, Kate Winslet writhes on the floor, only scarcely covered by a satin sheet, to promote Lancôme‘s L’Absolu Nu lipsticks.  Winslet, who recently debuted a peroxide blond pixie cut in British Vogue, is still sporting her signature soft locks in the ad, which was shot by Mario Testino.  Actresses are seemingly less and less prudish in their beauty ads: just recently, Italian luxury house Bulgari released a campaign fronted by an almost nude Kirsten Dunst for its new fragrance Mon Jasmin Noir.  Lancôme’s L’Absolu Nu lipsticks ($29 each) come in 12 different colors that are a bit lighter and, thanks to mother of pearl fragments, more sparkly than the brand’s L’Absolu Rouge collection.  I’m just excited to see Kate Winslet in the nude.
