Lewis Hayward Dazed Beauty

Make-up in motion

“Beauty isn’t a static pose perfected, but a thing of constant movement.”

Inspired by a discussion about facial distortion and the warped beauty ideals people face today, Lewis Hayward’s photographs capture “beauty in movement rather than a static state.” With the idea that you don’t have to be ‘perfectly’ posed to be seen as beautiful in mind, make-up artist Mona Leanne covers contorted faces in colours not usually associated with beauty. It's “anti-beauty, clashed with convention, working well together,” says Hayward.
