What’s your earliest beauty memory?
Is it destroying your mother’s lipstick stand or overwhelming your arm with spritz of perfume?
This month, Fashionising.com is celebrating all things beauty. From how-to guides to the latest makeup trends, all handy and precious information will be available right here.
But sometimes, it’s nice to dive into a sea of nostalgia and remember what perfume bottles meant to your grandmother. The time where talcum powder was considered a high-class beauty ritual and kohl eyes were linked with Cleopatra.
Artist Julie Verhoeven in collaboration with Neil Emery help us correlate beauty with the unusual aspects of life in this glorious film for AnOther magazine.
Placing emblematic products with bizarre items in psychedelic backdrops is Verhorven’s idea of “avoiding beauty clichéd product shots”. Even though paintbrushes, corkscrews and multi-coloured hammers might be considered a bargain for the beauty cupboard, they wouldn’t cut a chance in being of any use. But when placed with a Dior nail lacquer and a nude Tom Ford lipstick, suddenly, a paintbrush seems so much prettier.
