“I just found some flowers and I let the rest of the look follow that,” shares Marjolein de Ridder, the Netherlands-based makeup artist on how the process of creating the editorial look featured on ShilpaAhuja.com’s April 2022 digital magazine cover.
I created this look from the heart. No thinking, just right in the moment, that’s where the magic happens. I just was inspired by the flowers I used and let the rest of the look follow that.
This makeup look took just about 3 minutes to do, to be honest. I actually found some flowers, loved it with the green makeup and just went with it! Cream products again can be anything, I love my cream products from Danessa Myricks, MAC and The Creative Makeup.
If I had to find one word that could touch upon the emotion, message and art behind it, it would be passion! In fact, if I had to make this look, I’d call it ‘Green passion’. But I’m not great with naming my looks, to be honest!

She is very talented and we have worked together for almost 6 years. We know each other so well that if we don’t feel some kind of flow we just have to look at each other and we know enough.
