What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Abstract (Face) Painting

Ida Ekman

Finland-born London makeup artist Ida Ekman has a unique and creative way of imagining and executing makeup. She uses her models’ faces as her canvas, creating abstract paintings on their skin. The effect is bold and strong and gorgeous (if not terribly flattering). I am fascinated by the beautiful closeups of the eyes and lips, but at first, when the camera zoomed out, I found the overall effect somewhat jarring. I think I just needed to adjust my idea of beauty. I am satisfied to report that I have come around, and I’m looking forward to an opportunity to try my hand at this makeup style as well!
