Artist in Residency: Sir John reveals a fresh way to wear liner

FEBRUARY ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: SIR JOHN

WELCOME TO ARTIST IN RESIDENCY, OUR NEW SERIES THAT BRINGS THE INDUSTRY'S MOST INNOVATIVE MAKEUP ARTISTS TO ROSE INC. FOR A MONTH OF CREATIVITY AND INSPIRATION. EACH WEEK, YOU'LL DISCOVER AN ORIGINAL LOOK—AND THE STORY BEHIND IT—CREATED BY AN ARTIST WE LOVE.

This is the month of love, and it’s almost too easy to fall in love with Sir John Barnett. There’s the abundant creativity behind his makeup artistry, for one thing. He seemingly possesses an infinite amount of inspiration that fuels his looks for beauties such as Beyoncé, Karlie Kloss, and Joan Smalls.

Beyond his skill, though, Sir John is known for his warmth, kindness, and humility—qualities that make him a pleasure to have on set. For these reasons and more, Rose Inc. is delighted to feature Sir John as this month’s Artist in Residency.

HIS RESIDENCY INSPIRATION

Upon meeting model Evelyn, Sir John knew he wanted to play up her light hazel eyes. A rich burgundy color would do exactly that, and off he went. “We started with a serious maroon liner and added mascara to match,” he says. “Everyone knows they can use black and brown mascara, but I would love to see women challenge themselves with a colorful mascara.”

‘‘ I WOULD LOVE TO SEE WOMEN CHALLENGE THEMSELVES WITH A COLORFUL MASCARA ’’
