Dedicated to the man who said I was only a beautician and makeup is just a bit of slap on the face- Lan Nguyen Grealis
Make-up extraordinaire Lan Nguyen Grealis celebrated her book launch 'Art & Makeup' yesterday at London's Freemasons' Hall which catered to an array of celebrities from Paloma Faith to Jessica Wright. The make-up artist to the stars held an enchantingly mesmerizing fashion show to showcase the looks in her book- And let me tell you, the show was breathtaking! Her looks took inspiration from the likes of Picasso, Mad Men, Cleopatra and The Great Gatsby which all came to life on the catwalk. The theme in itself was a twisted apocalyptic fairy-tale which was perfectly executed with an insane band who set the mood amongst the dim atmosphere. It's great to see the artistry of make-up being celebrated on such an elevated level. Contrary to what some may think, it takes a lot of skill to bring a vision to life using make-up, influences and gut instinct. This was all depicted immensely in Lan's work- And I can't wait to see more of her work. Congratulations!
