Body Art & Fashion show - KENZO

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.

News The Art Of Illusion Show (1/2)

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.

About the KENZO body painting, the makeup artists responsible for the creation of the body painting told us their work:

“Our main challenge was to find a way of replicating the patterns on the suit in only six hours of application time. After several attempts, we realized that the only way of creating the patterns was to make stencils cut out with a laser. To achieve the perfect illusion of the jacquard print on the skin, we used Wet Make-up and a blend of metallic finish eye shadows. We had to learn to work in a new way to respect the designer’s world and creation while bringing in our own artistic sensitivity and vision. The success of this body painting is the result of real teamwork and constant dialogue." As Dany so appropriately puts it: “You can’t accomplish anything on your own.”
