Taken from the Beauty Project 2014, which covered the attainment of beauty in both Portraiture and Still Life, this series, form the latter, centres on the use of cosmetic products as a medium for beauty. This study of cosmetic tools has been fascinating as they are used by the vast majority of women on a day-to-day basis but are never really given much thought. The removal of all branding and bright colours from the cosmetics was essential to ensure that the subjects could be viewed in and appreciated for their shape and form. As a result the minimalist aesthetic developed to achieve this lends itself well to the series, further accentuating the details and forms of the cosmetics.
