So the first video I wanted to put out is more of a discussion- Is Makeup art? There’s many of differing views on that one, depending on if you’re a pro or an enthusiast. Personally I don’t think it’s a simple yes or no answer. Makeup is art, yes, because you have to be creative to a point, but you also have to have a critical eye to be good at it.
So Is Makeup Art?
My only real issue with the is makeup art argument is that many people who say yes it is, don’t realize that art is subject to criticism and opinions. Not all art is happy go lucky and makeup is included in that. Have you guys ever seen editorial makeup? Not all of it is beautiful in the traditional way, but it makes you feel. The thing with social media is that that individuality, that emotion you get from an amazing piece of art is basically nonexistant.
What Does that Mean?
Like I said in the video, if you go through the instagram feed so much of it is the same: strong brow, cut crease, application techniques. I guess I just want more for the beauty community. I want us to be able to embrace what makes us different, and create something new. That’s why I wanted to have this challenge at the end of the video.
I want you guys to pick one thing you love about your face and make that the focus of your makeup. Tag me on instagram @noblandmakeup and I’ll share your image in my next video.
Also while you guys are here, what got you into makeup. I’ll also share those answers in the next video!
