2013: A New Year and a New Kryolan Calendar

Every year the talented team at Kryolan Professional Makeup continue to amaze with their oversized 16 x 22-inch full-color calendars, and every year I can’t wait to get my hands on one to see their newest theme. This year, it’s famous women through history. The month of January is Aphrodite of Melos, below, Goddess of Love in Greek mythology.

In 2010 Kryolan celebrated beautiful landscapes and beautiful women simultaneously with a field of lavender, above…

Wigs and accessories were fashioned from paper, as you can see on the Klimt model here.

And who could forget Salvador Dali?

Pablo Picasso’s cubism is translated figuratively, on the model below.

And Vincent van Gogh’s post-impressionistic Starry Night, below, looks even crazier on a canvas of flesh.
