ELEMENTS THE ART OF MAKE-UP BY YASMIN HEINZ

This irresistible volume shows that make-up can be an exciting form of art.

“All four elements need to be present during any process of creation and this book pulled them all together. I love pop art and try to combine it with makeup, it’s the way I express myself. Makeup isn’t revolutionary but I hope my images will make somebody’s day, inspire them and lift them up” Yasmin Heinz
