Tell us more about Artdeco.
The brand was founded in 1985 with a limited assortment of eyeshadows, waterproof pencils, and other products. Artdeco is all about individuality and innovation – we celebrate the beauty of every woman, giving her the chance to be her own make-up artist and choose her own products for her Beauty Box. Basically, all our products come in small magnetic pans, which can be placed in Beauty Boxes of different sizes. This is called the “système mosaïque”, which was quite a revolutionary system when it started out. We also present amazing quality at an unbeatable price-performance ratio.
What are must-try trends for this season?
Lipstick is making a huge comeback. Artdeco offers a varied palette of textures in gorgeous colours. I am a huge fan of fuchsia this season. It’s the new red. I definitely recommend it.
What is the latest innovation from the brand?
We recently formulated a highly technological foundation, our High Definition Foundation. It looks flawless both on and off camera, and adds a gorgeous radiance to the skin. In a couple of months, we will be improving the formula once more to give it a little bit more coverage.
Name three colours that every girl must try.
I recommend trying new things and exploring new boundaries. At the end of the day, make-up can be washed off if you don’t like it!
What do you love most
I love how something so superficial can really bring out a person’s inner beauty and self-confidence!
Do you have tips for using Artdeco products?
