Beauty Inspiration of July: Maria Valverde

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a ‘beauty inspiration’ post. But I don’t like posting unless I truly like someone. Plus it takes me forever to choose the photos I like the best.

Her interpretation of her favourite movements is art shown on the model’s face with make-up was simply breathtaking. Alex showed her interpretation of Cubism, Dadaism(I had no doubts about that), Postmodernism, Romanticism and Baroque.



That would be naughty to republish all the photos, so please take a look at the other looks here.

I am also very excited about the first Illamasqua’s fragrance which
