‘Shades of Masculinity’ Explores the Gender-Fluid Nature of Makeup

‘Shades of Masculinity’ explores the idea that makeup is an art form that should be shared with everyone, no matter what a person’s gender, sexuality or ethnicity is. Makeup shouldn’t be labeled just for a singular type of person or conformed to limitations.

“Makeup is an art that is inclusive and I want to share that to anyone that wants to express themselves without the fear of what society expects and to dive in fearlessly.” – Nica Tan, creative director, who chose to use brands such as Claropsyche and Suva Beauty were used for the colored liners and shadows.
