Sylvia Dell’Orto is a world-renowned makeup artist based in Milan and New York. She is a true artistic mastermind and one of my personal inspirations. She has created many looks for beauty giant Sephora, and many of her videos are available on Her avant garde style and structuralist pieces create both a timeless elegance and modernity incarnate with every model she works her magic on. Continue reading for less famous artists who definitely deserve some exposure.

Apologies if her name is spelled incorrectly, but I’ve been Googling for awhile and found two variations. Some spell it “Dell’Orto” and others “Del Orto.” Being Italian, I would tend to lean towards the former, but when it comes to family names, anything is possible. The Trendland post which inspired this one is about talented makeup artists, and serves to showcase the work of various artists, with Sylvia among them.  I wasn’t too impressed with the other artists in that particular post, so I decided to introduce you to some less-known faves of mine.

Being completely obsessed with makeup and application, I often browse the web for new looks and techniques that I can try. I often turn to Youtube for inspiration, and am hooked on three artists…I just can’t get enough! Lauren is an LA-based freelance artist, and she rocks my socks. Another Lauren, this one from the UK, is living my dream. She is a successful makeup artist who recently launched her own makeup line. I have no idea if it’s any good…I’m stuck to my M.A.C and find it difficult to stray. Amy is from Charleston and she’s awesome, too. Her talent is undeniable and for all you ladies and gents who find makeup a daunting task, she’s a great teacher. These are a few examples of many when it comes to the talent out there. As is the case with most everything else in life, with makeup, experience is priceless. Practice does indeed make perfect, and perseverance is key if you want to become noticed. Dell’Orto is a phenomenon, and the Youtube artists are great examples of talent who truly deserve recognition.

Makeup allows us to transform ourselves, if ony for a few hours. One needn’t lop off six inches of hair, go blonde, or get a heavy-handed Botox injection to appear different. Makeup is a form of expression and inspiration. From barely-there to drag-like fabulousness, a great quality cosmetic is an easy pick-me-up for many ladies– and men– out there. No matter one’s personal opinion on makeup use, one cannot deny the talent of the hands behind special-effects makeup in films, and the artists that are the visual masterminds behind the intricate looks of the Cirque du Soleil. Check these ladies out, and you shall not regret. Maybe their videos will inspire the dormant artist in you, or at the very least, spark an appreciation of such a creative and colourful medium. In any case, I can guarantee at least one of you will run out to buy a new eyeshadow after watching a few ;) Let’s do the wave inspired by makeup solidarity *waves* THAT WAS A SEXAY WAVE!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your thoughts? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But its got no punch, no pop! Maybe if you added a pic or two, a video? You could have such a more powerful blog if you let people SEE what youre talking about instead of just reading it.

    Comparing a game’s performance between the iPhone 4 and the Nexus One is a terrible gauge of Android’s gaming abilities. The Nexus One’s GPU is well established as being inferior to that of other high-end Android phones in 3D performance. Even the Droid 1, despite having a lower clocked CPU, has a superior PowerVR GPU, which enables far better 3D performance on the Droid 1 over the Nexus One. Between the Droid phones and the Samsung Galaxy lines, there’s plenty of capable 3D hardware for Android.

    I dont see what it is about this web page that turns me off so much, but you just dont seem to get me excited. I dont comprehend if its the lack of content or just the way you wrote it. I think you actually dont seem to understand that your readers might not agree with you.
