This weeks featured artist is a little different as FKA twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett is a singer, songwriter, producer and dancer. She’s my current obsession, as she’s different from other current mainstream musicians. Her songs all have deep meanings, but she refuses to explain them to allow for individual interpretation. She’s a quiet and timid young woman, who doesn’t have a big and obnoxious personality like a lot of mainstream artists, which makes her more endearing. (more…)
Neal is a 20 year old makeup artist residing in Falmouth, Cornwall. His influences include Greek mythology and Alexander McQueen (finding beauty in things usually perceived as ugly). He started doing makeup because he loved the idea of female empowerment, being able to allow a woman to feel great about herself.
Trixie Mattel (real name Brian Firkus) is a drag queen from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. who is currently taking part in RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7. Her style is over the top, unblended Barbie realness. She brings a fresh take on drag to the show that hasn’t been showcased before. Her look seems to be a very love it or hate it judging by the fans of Drag Race on social media but I personally love it and she’s in my top two favourites of season 7 so far.
It also doesn’t hurt that she’s gorgeous out of drag too!
I recently discovered Johathan’s YouTube channel and was obsessed straight away. He has a really warm and welcoming personality that makes his videos a joy to watch, as he talks about his latest skincare, makeup and beauty finds. He uploads twice a week which pleases me as there is always new content to watch. (more…)

“The portraits I create express a perspective on human styling that does not rely on conventional clothing, hair, makeup or accessories but rather an aesthetic derived from the use of unusual materials and makeup to create otherworldly personas.”
