Foil. Velvet. Metallic. Cashmere. Gone are the days of beauty choices limited to creamy versus matte. The newest makeup comes in textures so varied
, we sometimes have a hard time deciding which to wear. But, what's the point of choosing just one? Textures are the building blocks to a look — and the juxtaposition of different finishes, even within the same facial feature, turns out to be a gorgeous thing indeed.
With this in mind, we brought in makeup artist Elisa Flowers
and charged her with the task of combining all the new textures we've been eyeing in a way that's gorgeous and wearable
. Paired with ultra-texturized, beachy hair created by Austin Call from Aveda
, the looks that Flowers painted on our model's face were so breathtaking, we were tempted to copy them while she was still working.
We also had the pleasure of a multi-textured manicure
created by the one and only Jin Soon Choi
— making this shoot the full beauty package. Click through to check it out.
