Of difference: we’re at a moment in beauty when identikit perfection looks positively passé. Touching on tribal elements with striking originality (Underground Society), taking a couture approach to nude makeup (Pale ‘N’ Dandy), feeling the heat of a carefree, sun-warmed vibe (American Nomad) or getting creative with the murano-glass palette being passed about (Dye-A-Tribe) feels eminently more interesting and appropriate. “The essential point with makeup this season is that it’s about projecting emotion and attitude, about not looking the same as everyone else,” explains Terry Barber.

Through an awesome reader in South Korea (thanks JiSoo!), I found out Makeup For Life was featured in the January 2010 issue of Nylon Korea along with a few other beauty websites like Makeupalley.com, AOL’s Stylelist and Totalbeauty.com etc.

Below is an excerpt of the article from www.nylonmedia.co.kr. I will post scans once I get the magazine in the mail. Thank you Nylon Korea and all of you for your support!
