Project Description

I created a piece of art that shows the intersection of makeup art and cosmetic formulation chemistry. I wanted to emphasize that we would not have makeup artistry without formulation chemists working to mass produce cosmetics. To show this I wanted to draw a woman wearing makeup to show the art side of makeup. Behind her I wanted to show the “behind the scenes”, the part of the cosmetic industry many don’t think about. I wanted to break up the pencil so I made a colored collage showing all the science put into creating beauty – a very popular form of art.
