Exploring Make Up As a Genderless Art Form

Exploring Make Up As a Genderless Art Form

When we think of make up in a western context, most of our minds immediately go to the expression of femininity.

But after seeing Fall Fashion Week 2017's make up looks, I saw make up in a completely different light. The bright, bold looks blurred the lines between make up as a means to enhance facial features and abstract face painting. The more abstract the looks got, the more genderless they seemed. For the first time I saw looks with eyeshadow that (as a masc presenting person) I could actually see myself wearing.

I invited some of my favorite Qwears and their friends to choose a look inspired by one of the Fall 2017's looks, or wherever their creativity took them, for us to recreate. The result was an incredible shoot that allowed us to express ourselves in newer, bolder, and brighter ways.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Nabeela


Look inspired by: Yoji Yamamoto
Make up by: Self

"Choosing the look was intuitive — it's something that feels like me. I definitely have a color palette or specific hues that speak to me. My relationship to form is kind of informed by my own practice as an artist and someone who uses it on other surfaces. I used the same forms that I would use on an image or a sculpture on my face. It gives me a moment to bond with my work."

Nora


Look inspired by: David Bowie
Make up by: Sarah Rose

"I really like how it's bold and bright; but it's not just big mascara, red lipstick, like going out to a party, but it's not simple like the Victoria Beckham look. It's more fierce! It's outside of my comfort zone because it's something new but I still feel comfortable in it."

Cal


Look inspired by: Maison Margiela
Make up by: Sarah Rose

"My look is flashy. I like to stand out. I'm wearing metallic gold jeans. I'm wearing a Calvin Klein sequin blazer and a golden high heel tee shirt. The make up stands out too with blocks of colors — it's bright, big, and flashy."

Lia


Look inspired by: Carmen Marc Valvo
Make up by: Sarah Rose

"I like how it's colorful! It makes me feel happy, fun, because it's all different colors. I like animals, and it's called 'tropical'. It makes me feel like I'm seeing a rainbow."

Cassie


Look inspired by: Versus Versace
Make up by: Self

"I choose this look because it's not something I normally do. I think it's an exaggerated version of my style. I really like harsh lines and my face is kind of round. I like to put the softness of my face and body next to really harsh lines. That's why I wear a lot of Black, faux leather, and lots of different textures." 

Alexis


Look inspired by: Victoria Beckham
Make up by: Sarah Rose

"I like that it's nice and simple but I also like that it's really pretty. I thought it would look really good with the color of my hair. And it's all sparkly. I like wearing make up because I'm not normally allowed to wear it, unless it's Christmas or Easter."

Sarah Rose


Look inspired by: Junya Watanabe
Make up by: Self

"David Bowie was a creature from the heavens, who traveled to this planet to teach us that it was okay to be weird — to take risks with our sense of style, and not to give in to the fear of judgment. This bold eye was inspired by one of his iconic looks, but I added my own twist to it (green instead of orange)."

Sonny Oram


Look inspired by: Prabal Gurung
Make up by: Sarah Rose

"My aesthetic is bold simplicity, so I was immediately drawn to this look. The shapes feel very abstract to me and didn't give off a feminine connotation."

Tyler Roze


Look Inspired by: Manish Arora dots, Christian Siriano black smokey eyes, and Philipp Plein Fierceness
Make up by: Sarah Rose

"I wanted to give a tribal look, so I added the dots. I wanted to give an imprint of what I stand for, which is universal love. The lovely grey lines that comes down as spikes is just a little bit of my fierceness. This whole samurai look —  modern age —  I love that I can use make up as a tool to express myself and that alone is fabulous."
