Isamaya Ffrench’s Painterly Beauty

Isamaya-Ffrench-1

i-D Magazine’s new beauty editor, Isamaya Ffrench considers herself a makeup artist and an illustrator. To that end, her face and body art take on a painterly quality.
Smeared metallics, glossy lids and colored brows comprise a signature style that tends toward the undone. “Imperfections evoke an emotional response,” the London-based makeup artist told i-D. “That’s what I’m after. That’s what art is all about.”
