Just when we thought we’ve seen it all in the beauty industry, a new brand comes along and challenges what we’ve thought about makeup. BEAUTY IS BORING was founded in 2012 by celebrity makeup artist and photographer, Robin Black. The brand aims to be a personal artistic outlet, that calls for inspiration, inclusivity, and fun because let’s face it, makeup shouldn’t be taken seriously.
With more than 135,000 followers on Instagram alone, Black has gained quite a devoted following among editors, curators, and collectors. An international influencer known for her highly inventive approach to beauty, she documents her makeup artistry through intimate portraits and how-to videos that celebrate individuality.
Her work has been featured in huge publications like Vogue, Vogue Italia, Elle, Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Interview, 10 Magazine, L’Officiel, and Vanity Fair.
