The Inspiration

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.

The Process

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.

The Message

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! 

The Team

Nina Meerman is the model in the image, who is represented by the agency The Future Faces Management. The person behind this work is photographer Suzan van Gemeren. She also does the retouch! 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.
