Kabuki is a living legend amoung make up artists. Innovative and creative to the max, he is known for unusual colour combos and textural innovation using and attaching non make up mediums to the face. As a gallery shown artist, he clearly thinks of make up artistry as an extension of his work... and as this Gold lame'd image shows, of himself.
Note: that gold lamed image IS Kabuki!!
As a true 90's NY Klub Kid, Kabuki began turning himself into avant garde creations of beauty before peeking the interest of photographers such as Peter Lindbergh and Steven Klein to work his magic for their editorials. With work published in the likes of Vogues the world over, Harpers Bazaar, W and Paper, seen on Sex and the City and Ugly Betty, and having worked for MAC on celebrities such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Gwynth Paltrow and Gwen Stefani, these days he is celebrated as one of Make up's true visionaries.
