Yasmin Heinz, who uses the the human face as her canvas. Working at the
cutting edge of beauty and fashion, from photoshoots to runway shows,
music videos and advertising campaigns, her expertise is in high demand by

This sumptuous volume of her most striking creations is divided into sections

Weaving together the best of fashion, art, beauty and photography, this
irresistible volume shows that make-up can be at the front line of art.
"In our daily and hectic lives the use of technology and social media often takes
over posting, tweeting; sometimes we forget that Mother Nature is at play -
we cannot survive without Mother Earth but yet the planets would survive
The elements Earth, Air, Fire and Water occur in each process of creation
and show us our emotional inner world. We should look to and enjoy what
we often take for granted - spend days in the woods, climb the mountains -
appreciate what the elements bring and use these blessing to enhance our art.
I love to empower people through make-up and show them their beauty by
helping them to understand how....Sometimes it is simply to uplifting a mood,
making someone feel confident and happy - just receiving a smile; it is often my
My new book is an extension of my vision and ideals and I love sharing it with you."
