i-D Magazine's new beauty editor is Isamaya Ffrench, who considers herself a makeup artist and an illustrator. To that end, her face and body art take on a painterly quality whether using smeared metallics, glossy lids or colored brows.

In fact, all of these qualities comprise her signature style that tends toward the undone, to which she states, "Imperfections evoke an emotional response." The London-based makeup artist features a number of different kinds of looks in this particular editorial.

It's an interesting way to look at makeup as the paint and the face as the canvas. Aside from the traditional modes of makeup application, there are so many other techniques you can accomplish with the medium, truly transforming the face into a communicator.
