For those of you who weren’t able to visit the 2015 Biennale Venice, we picked a few highlights which we found particularly interesting. Lets kick off the week with a bit of art, to infuse our work and our minds with fresh inspiration!
In the 400 year old Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, Spanish artist Jaume Pensa displayed “Together“, an installation of two large sculptures, engaging with each other and the surrounding impressive renaissance architecture in an intriguing discourse:

If you’re dreaming of becoming an internationally sought-after fashion make-up artist, there are many ways into the industry. Professionals often first work in other creative fields before zooming in to make-up for the fashion industry. For instance the international hair and makeup school the circus, Zurich, Switzerland, specifically states that they accept applicants into their program from various creative fields, whether it’s architecture, design, fashion, photography or otherwise.
Why? Because having a varied creative background can really help hair and make-up artists to realize a creative vision – they’ll be able to think outside of the box and see different artistic possibilities. This is especially useful in fashion, where creativity and design sensibility plays such a huge part!
Here’s an example for a very creative photoshoot, where the fashion alone was a fusion of different creative visions – and as in every fashion shoot, the hair and make-up artists had to work closely with the creative team to create a unified result:

Teen Vogue also recently published an interesting article where top name make-up artists share inspirations on how to become an internationally successful make-up artist.
As with any big goal, you need to have passion to succeed. There’s no ONE way – follow your passion, put in lots of hard work, and eventually, you’ll make it! Good luck!
