WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

 

Catering to our own gaze

 

Photographer: Asmus Koefoed

Model & makeup artist: Annastasia Yasmitha Nyvangstjerne

 

Remember when fashion & makeup was fun, when you played dress up & used your imagination, as well as your apparent & spontaneous wants for your look. Personally we think makeup has especially become about keeping it visually ‘safe’, about covering up & blending in, rather than about having fun & creating a personal look. Well, this focus on safety is bordering on boring & frankly, we think safety can blow it out it’s ass – we would always rather have fun & cater to our own imagination, rather than blending in & catering to the normcore gaze (that’s like the worst kind of gaze).

Therfore, we were thrilled when photographer (& astrophysisist) Asmus Koefoed showed us the following pics he took with Annastasia Yasmitha Nyvangstjerne.

The reason we love these pics are, that they look like a private party, like fun – & isn’t that what fashion & makeup should be, just like when we were kids & dressed up for ourselves & lived life based on our own wants!?!

BTW, did we mention all the makeup is vegan – now, that’s plus!
