Body Art & Fashion Show - Zuhair Murad

To celebrate its 30 years anniversary MAKE UP FOR EVER teamed up with six fashion designers to recreate six dresses with makeup on the body.

Each designer (Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Kenzo, Emilio Pucci, Shiatzy Chen, Valentin Yudashkin and Zuhair Murad) was selected by Dany Sanz  - Artist Director and founder of MAKE UP FOR EVER to create together an inspired piece of art that represents her artistic world. Whether surreal, exotic, baroque or tribal, each painting combines makeup with the dresses in a deft demonstration of artistic skill. Learn more about the work of the twelve makeup artists working on the body painting and discover the pictures of the dresses and the bodies.

 

The two makeup artists responsible for he creation of the body painting share with us their work:

“After many days of intensive training, we are delighted to have met this amazing challenge and worked with Make Up For Ever in celebrating its 30th anniversary. The Zuhair Murad dress is a gorgeous gown featuring significant detailing on the upper part of the body. When we began to prepare for the body painting, we had to create a perfect trompe-l’oeil that replicated all the complexities of the textures and colors of the dress. Recreating all the beads and sequins was difficult, but we achieved it by preparing a mixture of Blister Effect Gel, Pure Pigments, Star Powder, glitters and rhinestones with Spirit Gum.”

Makeup Artists: Mylène Ruaux & Laila Friedli
