Colour is powerful and holds energy and vibration; it exudes dynamism, expressiveness, and an immense sense of enjoyment. Some of us have a love of colour bordering on the obsessive. I certainly love the art of experimenting with colour and make-up – be it bold strokes, delicate feathering, seamless blending, or skilful graduation. I employ colour to either make a bold statement or whisper a subtle message, to make elements stand out or gracefully disappear, and to establish the desired expression or ambiance.
In this era, we are blessed with an extraordinary array of vibrant cosmetics, providing makeup enthusiasts with boundless opportunities to unleash their creativity using a vast spectrum of colours and shades. I am eager to share the incredible positive energy and the transformative qualities of colour, which can infuse vibrancy into your makeup, uplift your day, and energize your spirit.
