And sources of inspiration for the main makeup artist of Make Up For Ever Anna Merkusheva - in a special interview for BeautyHack.
Chief Makeup Artist Make Up For Ever
"To create an unusual make-up, I am inspired by the visual beauty around: movie heroines, funk from the 70s and themed showcases in Paris"
Showcases Galleries Lafayette
I never pass by thematic showcases - they always "talk" with passers-by, tell touching stories and make whole images. Fantasy itself creates makeup sketches in my head! In Paris, my favorite showcases are near the old department store Galleries Lafayette, in Moscow I am looking at new seasonal installations by TsUM.
TV series Sex and the city
I watch the series endlessly and every time I feel its "magic" - Samantha, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte instantly cheer up! I would like to properly dress up, make up, and have fun conquering the city with your beloved friends!
Rhythms of the 70s and 80s
Music helps to live and create - especially loud and rhythmic, to which you can not help but dance! For me, these are songs from the 70s and 80s - this era inspires experiments in makeup: colored arrows, bold shapes, shades of candy and other planets. My everlasting hit is September by the funky band Earth Wind & Fire! I have known her since childhood and use her for new ideas.
Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby Film
Such a beautiful, stylish and alluring era in the modern interpretation of Baz Luhrmann - the director of the carnival! And what kind of makeup is there! Sophisticated shades of smoky eyes, rich textures! Re-watch the movie and pay attention to each image. The main makeup artist on the set, Maurizio Silvi, was inspired by the shades of cars in New York at that time. Amazing!
