Makeup genius Francesca Tolot just created one of the most exciting art books all makeup lovers need to own by year-end. She collaborated with photographer Alberto Tolot to create 100 transformations on only one model, Mitzi Martin, in One Woman 100 Faces ($35, amazon.com).
If you aren’t excited yet, need I remind you that Francesca has worked with literally all of the top celebs in the industry, including Beyoncé for over 10 years! With that being said, Bey even wrote a foreword for Francesca’s book!
Recently Tolot sat with Harpers Bazaar to talk about her new art book, inspiration, and makeup tricks. Here are a few highlights below:
On Beyoncé writing the foreword:
This was extremely special , I feel very blessed, loved, and appreciated. I still can’t believe she actually did it! Her generosity is beyond. I think the part of her forward that she says, “She is the only artist I trust will bring out a beauty in me I didn’t even know existed,” my thoughts on that statement are that her beauty to me is so multi-faceted and complete that makes it effortless to create anything on her. I love our connection.
