Cosmetic Play

Modern fashionistas crave a more playful take on aesthetics

Implications - The fashion and beauty industry is based on fearlessness and the ability to experiment; fashionistas who know this are constantly seeking ways to play with their look. Adding an unabashedly playful element to cosmetics suits this bold attitude toward aesthetic adornment perfectly. Just like in the world of beauty, companies that don't take themselves too seriously and experiment with branding will remain conspicuous in a crowd.
