You've got something on your face


Make-up artist Porsche Poon teams up with photographer Michiyo Yanagilhara in a new project inspired by our constant yearning for approval and praise

Approval for Life – Encouragement Stamps is based on my realization about why we consciously and subconsciously look for everyone else’s approval and why it happens at such an early stage of our life,” Porsche Poon, makeup artist and art director of the shoot tells us.

“I think the most significant memory, for me, of trying to get approval from others has to be when I was a kid and I wanted to score more gold stars on my homework, just to get praise or earn my social status in class. All of that inspired me to do a beauty story and have a laugh at my past. Besides just stamping the face with paints, I wanted to keep the essence of childishness, so the placement of colour is like a kid trying to act older and do their make-up from mum's make-up drawer. A red lip, pink cheeks and dark blue eyes.”
