Transform is a peek into the fantastic imagination of an editorial makeup artist. With a single model as her palette for these sixty stunning looks, Toni Malt works utter magic. While she details her inspiration and application process and reveals the encyclopedic product knowledge that goes into creating each winning character, the spellbinding photos are the real proof of her mastery of color, technique, and balance. Making use of such accessories as stencils, Swarovski crystals, temporary tattoos, and glitter and employing tools sourced from the arts and crafts shop or hardware store instead of just the makeup counter, Malt’s looks range among soft and ethereal, impossibly chic, flamboyantly colorful, and truly otherworldly. Whether the focus is on the eyes, lips, or entire face, these makeup transformations are anything but ordinary.
Toni Malt is a makeup artist based in Dubai, where she runs her own makeup academy. Her creative work has been published in top international fashion magazines including Vogue, Elle, L’Officiel, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Grazia, Cosmopolitan, and Rolling Stone. Born and raised in Germany, Toni has lived in both London and New York and traveled extensively throughout her career, which spans over a decade.
- About Assouline Publishing:
Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page. The passion and the attention to detail are like that of an haute couture atelier.
Known worldwide for bringing luxury to the publishing industry, Assouline produces one-of-a-kind books on fashion, art, architecture, photography, design, and travel, weaving a story of L’Art de Vivre with every publication. The Ultimate Collection is the epitome of the Assouline brand as it offers an unparalleled standard of excellence in the 21st century. Each book from the collection pays homage to the time-honored craft of bookbinding and pictures are individually hand-tipped, a process which requires cutting, gluing, and placing each photo onto the page. This level of craftsmanship yields the highest quality books in the world, truly pieces of art in their own right.
