I was able to compete in an internal competition called Beauty Masters which is a development program for Sephora. I wanted to show you a little glimpse into the day and what my Face Chart look turned out to be.
Kat Von D Beauty sponsors Beauty Masters with Sephora this year and being an avid fan of the brand, what they stand for and of course Kat Von D herself, I could not pass up the idea of trying out. There are SOOO many talented artists this year so though my look was super simple, it was filled with details. Lines, dots and mess dots.
The second round (I will back-track to first round in a later post!) was all about educating in the brand and elements of Kat Von D and her 10 muses. Then we were to find inspiration on Instagram from specific accounts related to Kat Von D (EXTREMELY QUICK) then create a Face Chart from the Inspiration photos. Afterwards we had a little over an hour to recreate the Face Chart on our faces.
So. My inspiration photos are these ones that I found from a number of accounts including @thekatvond, @sstrazzere, @kelseyannaf, @ginaharrison, @adelemidred, and @iamleah.
As you see, I get inspired by Asia, by color, by designs and by texture so I wanted to make sure to incorporate these elements but simply and delicately.
Another inspiration when I see these photos from the Instagram accounts is 15th Century Japan in which they had an asethetic called “Wabi-Sabi” – the concept of seeing beauty in flaws as well as the art of “Kintsugi” – In which when pottery was broken, they repaired them with gold so it can continue on – and in my case I wanted to incorporate the color as my golden lining. There is beauty in all things imperfect and this simplicity is what I hoped my Face Chart and Face was able to show.
My Face Chart & Final Look
Unfortunately I did not take my professional camera with me but hopefully you got a good idea of how my look turned out! I could have definitely done more with my look but I am very happy with my look especially with the time limit we had and in connection to the inspiration I used. It is simple but it does say a lot about who I am and the love of seeing beauty in small details and love of simplicity but of course still with a splash of color for personality.
Oh and yes. I do have a wonderful farmers-tan from Florida as I wore t-shirts throughout the vacation… so dont mind the tanlines!
/Detta är min look för Beauty Masters som är i kollab med Kat Von D Beauty och Sephora. Jag är med och tävlar och ville visa min look till er! Den är inspirerad av Japansk 15th century konst och även några Kat Von D konton på Instagram.
