We as a species have become addicted to single-use plastic products – bottles, bags, clingfilm, packaging, takeaway cartons – to name but a few. Globally, around one million plastic bottles are purchased every minute. And according to the UN 5 trillion plastic bags are used annually. But this is not a a story about the environmental destruction wrought by our collective overconsumption of plastic, but rather an ode to the beauty and the sensuous qualities of plastic. We let make-up artist Rozelle Parry tell it in her own words:

“We liked the idea of looking through  different plastics , thicknesses ,and  textures and seeing  the reflection of light .We used different tensions and angles in the way the plastic was held.”

“We ADded a wet look To Clara’s face pushed against the glass producing a playful  illusion. many girls  are now doing the same make-up wise  on instagram with  the hightlighted nose and chin and plumped up lips.”

“REFLECTIONS INSPIRED MY MAKE-UP CHOICES, CREATING GLOSSY LIDS AND LIPS.”
