(This eye makeup color) is very close to Majorelle Blue, which is a color that was created by French painter Jacques Majorelle, which greatly inspired Yves Saint-Laurent, and inspired me.”
— Omayma Ramzy

MALIBU, CALFORNIA, USA, October 12, 2017 / -- Makeup Artist to the stars Omayma Ramzy completed an exciting new project with former Matthew Barney collaborator Radka Salcmannona for L.A. Fashion Week this month, pushing the boundaries of fashion to places it has rarely been seen before. Fashion industry icon 'Vogue Magazine UK' hailed the team's work.

Pulling from the Art Nouveau movement reflected in the stunning Moroccan Gardens of Jardin Majorelle, Hair and Makeup trendsetter Omayma Ramzy gave homage to Yves Saint-Laurent and the French painter Jaques' Majorelle, inspired by his trademarked, explosive, cobalt blue. The fashion leader states, "I am pleased to have just finished designing and creating the Makeup look for the L.A. Fashion Week Runway Show by Radka Salcmannova." Salcmannova--a cutting edge artist, designer, and filmmaker; recently worked with Carolina Sarria for New York Fashion Week, and has also recently worked with world famous artist Matthew Barney--husband of Bjork.

Teaming with Radka Salcmannona

Omayma Ramzy states of the exciting collaboration with Radka, "It was really cool. Radka came across my work with photographer Lloyd Galbraith, who is an L.A. photographer, and felt like it was a really strong connection, and then decided she wanted me to create her look." Galbraith's work is uniquely experimental; creating some vibrant, sensual, artistic images. Dazzlingly; Ramzy's masterful makeup technique and brushwork explodes and pops like a disco ball full of brilliant, neon colors.

The Painterly Art of Makeup

Ramzy continues, regarding Salcmannona stating of her work, "Her pieces are all really unique and involve many mediums. It is very unique. For example; the pieces are very molten, textured, and melted. There is a lot of decomposition and deconstruction within the pieces, and this played a really big part in designing the look for me, and then in looking at the color as well-- that was a very 'big' deal."

Omayma, whose work has been seen in many fashion magazines and films world wide, further mentions, "Radka's pieces are predominantly metallic colors; metal, and chromatic, and predominately a strong gold, which also played a big part in it. So you will see in the pieces, with the looks that I created--it was a very strongly pigmented color of blue that had a little bit deeper hue for me than the color blue--it was almost a royal blue."

From Majorelle in the Red City and YSL, to the Runways with Omayma Ramzy

Ms. Ramzy further explains, "It is very close to Majorelle Blue, which is a color that was created by French painter Jacques' Majorelle, which greatly inspired Yves Saint-Laurent, and also inspired me." Omayma adds, "Majorelle, who even trademarked his rich, beautiful blue, used the color widely in his beautiful and famous garden; Jardin Majorelle. Located in Marrakech, Morocco (The Red City); the artist painted the magnificent color on its structures, clay pottery, and more. The Majorelle Garden receives nearly one million visitors each year, from around the world.

The Methods of a Master Makeup Artist

Omayma adds, "I spent a lot of time growing up in Marrakech, Morocco, and that color has always struck me very strongly, and there is a certain texture that speaks very loudly to me. It is a very matte and pigmented color, and that is very special to me personally. Growing up, I would spend time there, and so this color to me--and the texture, created so much more of a conversation against such detailed ornaments on the models' bodies. It created a bit more of a conversation for me that I found very interesting, and I wanted to take this complementary color against such highly detailed pieces, to have just like this block of blue. Instead of it being shiny, I wanted it to be quite matte, and full of pigment, and yet to still be striking, and to create an even more striking piece, which with that then to me--the gaze of each model would then draw you in further with the makeup up that we did." 'Vogue U.K.' hailed the fashion team's work as "surreal," with "blue paint on (the models) faces," worthy of "Game of Thrones." The lauded show was also produced with Lloyd Galbraith.
