“When I create products, I always imagine characters,” explains Dany Sanz of her approach to makeup. Founding the beauty label Make Up For Ever alongside her husband in 1984 – she was unconvinced by the size of the industry’s offering elsewhere – the French makeup artist has since been one its most important champions in her role as Artistic Director. And now, she’s put those same creative thoughts into a book.
“Long before becoming Founder and Artistic Director of Make Up For Ever, my vision as a makeup artist was shaped by the education I received at the School of Fine Arts,” she continues. “I see art as a form of movement, which is why I chose to paint bodies, rather than canvas, and sculpt faces rather than clay. This book is an illustration of my own creative process… I wanted to write an original book, different from all the others, which would reflect my creative philosophy.”
