When Juliana Horner (@vesperucca) is asked about her style of makeup, even she can’t describe it. “I have a natural tendency to break away then come back to abstract work,” says the 26-year-old artist, who works not only with makeup, but also illustration and fashion — and she has aspirations in the field of virtual reality design. “My drawing and my makeup converged at a certain point. They slowly merged into one stream of this really weird makeup style that I don’t have a name for.”
Throughout all of her art, Juliana is inspired by common themes. “I have a pretty feminine perspective that shows up in my work, and I really love color. I’m addicted to saturation. My eye is always going to gravitate toward the saturated part of a scene, and I like to think how I can bend or contort that saturation in a more pleasing way.”
