MAC make-up artist starts plant-based beauty trend

MAC cosmetics make-up artist Ellie Costello has launched a new trend on her personal Instagram page for ‘terrarium eyes’, with images shared depicting eye make-up looks using flowers and plants, according to a report by Teen Vogue.

Costello, who boasts 11,000 followers, works for MAC during the day, began sharing images of her own eyes on Instagram embellished in extravagant make-up which included plants, flowers and leaves.

Speaking to Teen Vogue, Costello said, “I’ve also always enjoyed incorporating a lot of color into my creations, and using nature is a nice way to do it. I never like to pre-plan my looks, as I find when you create freely, you experiment a lot more and have a much more creative outcome.”

The 19-year-old make-up artist also used one of her creations as entry into the NYX Cosmetics UK Face Awards UK and gave a nod to beauty blogger @ItsJuneJune as her inspiration for using plant-based items in her work.
