About / Disclosure

As a makeup artist, I’m fascinated by how beauty practices fit into our society – how our representations of self define us and our perceptions of others. Here on Wild Beauty, I’m exploring beauty and its related culture around the world, through vanity practices, art, and the people who make them happen.
