London-based interior and furniture designer Faye Toogood and make-up artist Ayami Nishimura have collaborated to create Aether, the newest concept collection for MAKE. Designed to reflect absolute and eternal beauty, Toogood and Nishimura worked together to ensure the overall mood of the collection was ethereal and reflected Toogood’s inspiration: spirituality, rebalance and ceremony. Toogood also found inspiration in a range of basic materials including plastics, foam, medicine, ice, natural cotton and chalk. Aether embodies these elements, with yellow and light grey hues highlighted against the predominantly tonal, white colour palette.
“The incorporation of minerals and creams within the Aether Collection add new age luster to the face,” says Toogood. “There is a strong reflective quality to the products that offers a feeling of rebalance, retreat and calm. The collection features a range of textures and tones from creamy warms to cold whites, cold silvers to warm pearlescent glitters.”
This is such a great collection. I’ve tried a couple of the pieces, and I absolutely love them! I think my favorite must be the Skin Illuminator. It it WONDERFUL! I keep it in my purse – and when I need a little pick-me-up, I grab that! I love the colors, I love the cause part of the proceeds go to… I love it all!
