The idea behind SKETCH was to go back to basics, where I started my makeup career - drawing faces with just paper and pen. I wanted to develop that look on to a three dimensional face, yet still retain the look of my original sketch. Treating the face as a canvas I ignored traditional makeup techniques relying only on contouring and highlighting. Instead of makeup brushes, I used just my fingers and rough paint brushes to get the unique effect of a large build-up of paint to transform the model each time.
