Problem: You have big dreams of becoming an artist, but couldn’t sketch, sculpt, or paint well if your life depended on it.
Solution: Try getting creative with something a little more personal—namely, your face.
For spring, Smashbox is releasing a new collection called Muse, a series of paint splattered palettes, eye pencils, mascaras, and primers. While you prep your canvas—err, face—squeeze lip gloss from what looks like a paint tube and wield an eye shadow brush like you’re Monet (or, if you’re particularly wild, Pollock).
Smashbox is best known for developing products with the help of professional makeup artists, so no surprise that they would come up with such a creative-minded set. After all, there’s a reason why makeup artists are called “artists”.
