Going into the second lockdown in 2021 I wanted to keep myself busy and continue experimenting with makeup on myself, and the Wipe
prints I’d seen a few done before but not as a series, definitely not of one hundred. Once I’d tried it once and thought it looked cool with my clown face aesthetic, I set myself a goal just for fun and completed doing one hundred over about 9 months.
As for the process, I find water-based products always of course absorb to the wipe best, anything that set or dries down super strong often won’t transfer well. I find that firmly holding the wipe to your face and pressing rather than rubbing it has a better success rate for a cleaner finish, for me at least. I had 2,000 followers when I started the series and had just been posting my makeup looks here and there for friends to see mainly. Now, they’ve become a bit of a staple in my work and I have a huge binder full of them, I try to do one for every look now, just at least to keep for myself. They’re well received on Instagram and online and I often put a couple up for sale on my website for those wanting to buy a framed original piece on my website
