Foodie by Azil

They say inspiration can strike at any time. When our friend and make up artist Liz Oduor (Azil) told us she had a food – inspired make up concept, we couldn’t wait to hear more about it! We speculated for a while on what kinds of foods she would want to work with; would it be messy, would we have to cook, what happens to the leftovers..?  The concept got even more interesting for us when we discovered that she intended to use traditional African foods for her several make up looks.

What followed was a week of the most delicious and exhausting prep – our fingers and mouths were stained red from eating the bits of achari that did not pass our rigorous inspection protocol! Despite some touch ups on set as can be expected when working with fresh ingredients, everything went extremely well!

Don’t let us convince you, see for yourself… 😉
