Fine art and makeup artistry share many similarities as media. The precision and skill it takes to put charcoal to paper or brush to canvas are duly needed for placing pigment on lips and eyes. Make Up For Ever presents perhaps the best example of this crossover, seeing as how its founder, Dany Sanz, essentially introduced the concept of body painting to Europe in the seventies, ultimately creating a line of professional cosmetics to be used on stage, on screen, on the runway, and eventually at home. For holiday, Sanz has furthered this connection by releasing the Aqua Eyes Collector Set. A limited-edition selection of 25 of the brand’s award-winning eyeliner pencils—which double as shadows when smudged—comes housed in a flat tin box reminiscent of the classic colored-pencil cases of art class fame. Draw outside the lines accordingly. I don't think this will be released in Manila anytime soon, or at all! Got to ask my aunt to get me a set. Value at $425, now for only $249. And it's limited edition!
