The raw colors in your makeup.

A chemist and a makeup artist are standing in the lab. Sounds like the intro to a joke!

Actually, what usually happens is a lot of squealing, swirling, swatching and glittering. Today’s fun was showing makeup artist Fatima Olive some of the pretty pigments in their raw form, before any processing had been done to them. Naturally, photos happened.

It was fun! But very messy. We shall never speak of this.
