Kitty was Accepted into the finalist international makeup artist trade show Battle of the brushes and today she won the second place against all other countries present.
For the inspiration of international beauty, I looked at the last Miss Universe pageant’s national costume round to see how different cultures have created their own take on beauty, combining history with modern talent through the work of costume design.
It is clear that through all of their differences all the beautiful women at this pageant portrayed several things in common. Water and the sun under which all cultures have prospered.
My inspiration uses the earth colors to show that beauty resonates from where we all came, where we have all been born and where will all rest. Flowers on the face to create femininity but harsh lines to show the strength of all people. Water flowing through the rivers and the oceans of the world binding us all no matter the territory and the sun colours framing it all.
