'The Shape of Things' in VEGAN GOOD LIFE magazine, photographed by Brix&Maas - hair & make-up: Gabrielle THEURER c/o BASICS.BERLIN

The VEGAN GOOD LIFE blog has ascribed to the ethos that careful and sustainable living doesn't necessarily have to be boring. Photographer duo Brix&Maas will once again contribute several fashion editorials for the online magazine this year. Present in the first print edition of the blog is Gabrielle THEURER c/o BASICS.BERLIN with her elaborate make-up.

"Her color palette ranges from a cold light-blue to a warm red-orange. The pale complexion of the model provides the ideal canvas, and the actual make-up not only succeeds in accentuating the model's face, it takes it a step further and becomes an integral part of the photo. Make-up can be used for far more than staging the individual... it is an artistic tool – which Gabrielle demonstrates again and again in her work." says BASICS.BERLIN about the work of its artist. All of the above, as aforementioned, can also be seen in the print edition of Vegan Good Life magazine or on the BASICS profile of Gabrielle.
