International Makeup Artist Beverly McColgan uses Airbase’s 00 porcelain for a striking piece of work commissioned by
Label Nor Autonom who’s Brief was “pull of power; of strength and restraint.” We discussed Michelangelo’s David for the colour and reflection of alabaster skin. Airbase had only just released 00 porcelain and I was determined to use it on the shoot, as the client wanted a marble feel that was also translucent. I explained the added benefits that the make-up will last on the skin even with constant changes in costume. Photographer Mathias Sterner joined creative forces with Nicolas Richard we all worked together slowly building up the base to get the exact level of light reflection after a few tests with 00, we were all happy with the opacity and light reflection . I sculpted the existing muscular contours on Mikas model Lucas ,with Airbase ebony 06 .
The result, the male form is presented as a “fetishised body, a classic and kinky beauty.”
