“Makeup is an art of constant, very imperceptible changes in texture, colour, volume and touch. The shifting conditions of light, the natural features of a model and the changing nature of every new brief means that my approach is always transforming.”
Attracted to the full spectrum of colour but deft in its application, Warkentin likens her work to painting in that she seeks to illuminate rather than disguise the originality of the face: “I like to emphasize the beauty that is already there and even if a job calls for theatricality, I always stress the integrity of skin and the clarity of a model’s best features. It’s a balance of proportion, flattery and adapting to the changing face of beauty. Even when working with the most known celebrity there is a chance for reinvention, that is what lets make-up stay modern…and magic.”
From celebrity to runway, advertising, editorial & personal makeup services Molly enhances unique beauty across all platforms.
