I am a well-documented believer in the life-changing (or, at the very least, day-changing) potential of makeup. Many girls are completely cool with going au naturel, while others like myself are just not that into it. It’s not that I feel like I need to wear makeup to be presentable, or like I’m hideous without it. I just prefer myself with my makeup on — I don’t even wear that much of it! For a new editorial in the June issue of avant-garde cultural glossy Dazed & Confused, makeup artist Yadim took the transformative power of cosmetics and spun it on its head by turning run-of-the-mill (as if) models into flesh-and-blood rough drawings inspired by the portfolio of fashion illustrator René Gruau. A daunting concept, yes, what with the insta-recognizability of the artist’s work, but the results are startlingly true to Gruau’s distinctive vision. Check out the whole (NSFW) shoot at Fashion Gone Rogue.
