Torraine Futurum is a model and musician who grew up and lives in New York. Whether she’s modelling for Gyspy Sport, Teen Vogue or Milk make-up, or else performing her music (look out for upcoming album "Miles From Heaven"), Torraine's approach to things is visibly ahead of her time. In fact, when it comes to the passage of time, Torraine prefers not to offer us a numerical age, but instead describes herself with the adjective ‘timeless’.

The word also befits her attitude towards what beauty is, something that is less focused on the exterior but more on interior feeling. “You can find beauty in anything that feels special," she says. To her, beauty is excellence and she achieves excellence by taking her experience of the past and present and making art from it. Her debut single 'Unclaimed Perfection, Babygirl' is an example, and earned her a feature spot in Paper magazines ‘50 LGBTQ Musicians You Should Prioritise’. The video opens with a quote from the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It says: "Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but nothing left to take away." 

When do you feel most beautiful?
When I have money. I’d feel beautiful more often if I had more money.

What beauty product would you take with you to the moon? Why?
Just my foundation. And some curl creme.

If you could have a new sense on top of your existing ones, what would it be?
I’d like to be an empath. To have the ability to know exactly what people were feeling… but only when I choose.

It is the sixth day and you are creating humans. They can look however you want them to. What do they look like and why?
I don’t care what humans look like! Let it all be confusing and look like an acid dream.

You have to replace your body with that of an animal or a mythological creature. What do you go for and why?
Sometimes I wish I looked like Venom. The Tom Hardy version. Or Divine Spawn.

What is the future of neauty?
People doing Lady Gaga ‘Applause’ makeup and wearing to into the office or their job at Starbucks.
