Artist Collaboration by Faye Toogood and Ayami Nishimura
Aether collection for MAKE, a collaboration with London-based designer Faye Toogood and makeup artist Ayami Nishimura. Opaque and pure, Aether is an endeavor for the absolute and the eternal, with a series of hues in cool and warm matte whites set off by deep flesh lips, which Nishimura interprets into an other worldly look.
Toogood and Nishimura worked together to ensure the overall mood of the collection was ethereal and reflected Toogood’s inspiration: spirituality, rebalance and ceremony. Toogood also found inspiration in a range of materials including plastics, foam, medicine, ice, natural cotton and chalk. Aether embodies these elements, with yellow and light grey hues highlighted against the predominantly white color palette.
“The incorporation of minerals and creams within the Aether Collection add new age luster to the face,” says Toogood. “There is a strong reflective quality to the products that offers a feeling of rebalance, retreat and calm. The collection features a range of textures and tones from creamy warms to cold whites, cold silvers to warm pearlescent glitters.”
