Art and Museums

by Wendy Ann Rosen

In order to create, one must be inspired. It is important to have a knowledge of Art and Art History, not only for the visual inspiration, but for possible reference to research for a project, along with a better understanding of different application techniques that can then be translated into makeup. Art is everywhere and can be anything, all depending on ones individual interpretation of something. The more you see and experience, the greater your chance of creating a truly inspirational makeup.
