Vibrant cosmetics like the ones featured within Christel Bangsgaard’s beauty photography remind me a lot of ‘MAC’ Cosmetics. Whenever I see print advertisements for this particular cosmetic brand, they are never afraid to use saturated colors and make bold makeup moves -- just like Christel Bangsgaard.

Christel Bangsgaard has a Danish heritage, but is currently located in New York City where she creates her stunning cosmetic closeups. With a second place nod in the beauty category of The International Photography Award, I’m sure we’ll be seeing more from this talented artist and photographer.

Implications - Choosing to undergo bold colorful campaigns is something that many companies and artists carefully consider. For those who are able to incorporate daring color schemes in a tasteful, not overdone way, consumers continue to find these displays more memorable -- just like how many viewers react to MAC Cosmetics campaigns.
