Channel Janelle Monae's Glowing Skin & Do-able 'Do

Despite Robin Black's self-professed love/hate relationship with beauty, the photographer-cum-makeup artist behind Beauty is Boring is bent on capturing the faces of everyone from top models to friends to perfect strangers with her vintage Big Shot Polaroid camera, complete with Magicubes & film — after she does their makeup, of course. Get your bookmarks tab ready, ladies.

Inspired by Karlheinz Weinberger’s portraits of rebel boys in the 1950s, talented upcoming hair stylist Bobby Eliot created this genius, curled 'do. I kept Miss Jodie Smith’s makeup classically pretty with just a touch of the '50s in the big lashes and defined brows (referencing Helen Williams’ iconic beauty). Note: Jodie, Bobby and I have another look (a very extreme one!) up our sleeves… stay tuned.
