Chloe Rose is a London-based freelance makeup artist. Chloe's makeup concepts are inspired by the most natural of beauties—nature itself. Chloe Rose has acted as the makeup artist for famous faces, Emie Nathan and Olivia Dean.

Can you recall your introduction to makeup?

Art has always been an important part of my life. I have always had a paintbrush in my hand. As I grew older and discovered makeup, that paintbrush turned into a makeup brush.

Where do you find inspiration for makeup concepts?

I find inspiration in the world around me. I have always been fascinated by all the colours and textures in nature.

A makeup rule you always follow?

I always want to bring a little extra something to the table—life is too short to do something simple. Rules are made to be broken and boundaries are meant to be crossed—you should always colour outside the lines.

Mother Nature needs no touch-ups

Think flowers, think cabbages, think leaves, think oranges… now zoom in.

Look at those intricate details that nature has created—interesting colours (so vivid and bright) and veins weaving in and around each other. All these amazing details will then be painted over my model's faces and bodies.

Other aspects of this shoot will remain simplistic. There will be minimal styling, perhaps just adornments to emphasise the artwork—a gorgeous gold frame around a piece of art.

This shoot would have to take place in nature. Perhaps among the trees in the Amazon Rainforest, or surrounded by exotic flowers in the Philippines.

Ever since I can remember, nature has been the inspiration for my paintings. The fluidity of my brush when I begin to paint from nature has me hypnotised every time.
