"What better way to bring back a glimmer of nostalgia than through the neon brights of the 80’s! Bill was inspired to create this downtown look after perusing through his collection of early work and remembering the fashion of Stephen Sprouse, the early music of Madonna and the over the top styling of Boy George. “It was such a vibrant-anything goes- period….the brighter the better! I loved working with photographer Juan Algarin on this shoot, and Betty from ONE models really made it all come together-she had just the right attitude to pull off those fuchsia eyes!”

Brushes used to achieve this Look:
The Circle 1, has a tilt from the handle and a round fibre bundle which ends in a flattened surface that simulates the shape of a lipstick bullet tip. This patented brush applies lip products across the lip quickly and softly, and can also be used for a more precise edge if desired. The Circle 1 will apply small areas of concealer to help cover spots. Artis brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fibre made for applying cosmetic and makeup products.
The Linear 1, has a very narrow [about 1-2 mm] row of fibres to help concentrate product application in a line, such as along the lash line. This patented brush can apply a precise line of product along the upper lash line or tucked under the lower lash line. It can also be used to fill in and define the brows and can simulate brow hair lines; or can be used to apply a defined line along the lip or any other part of the face. The Linear 1 brush is very helpful for special effects makeup to create crisp lines and linear shapes.
